Exclusive - MI6 unveils the brand new motorcycle from British manufacturer Triumph, who will be supplying Q-Branch in "Everything or Nothing"...

Triumph Daytona 600 For 007
19th July 2003

MI6 can exclusively reveal that the brand new Daytona 600 motorcycle, designed and manufactured in Britain by Triumph, will be joining James Bond 007 on his latest gaming mission: "Everything or Nothing".

Game developers Electronic Arts chose to follow the same route that the film producers took with the four-wheel dilemma since the BMW licence expired, and have chosen the best British manufacturer to equip 007.

As Aston Martin is to the car world, Triumph carries one of the oldest and most famous names in the motorcycle industry - with a heritage dating back to 1902.

The company now designs and produces the latest models from a new base in Hinckley, Leicestershire - only a stones throw from where it all began in Coventry over a century ago.



Pierce Brosnan as James Bond 007 will now join the ranks of Steve McQueen, Marlon Brando and Clint Eastwood - who have all had a famous Triumph motorcycle as a co-star.

The Daytona name is the stuff of legends for Triumph Motorcycles, and not used lightly. The subtle, discreet logo on the Daytona 600's sleek bodywork reinforces just what this new bike is about; power, poise and complete control.

007 can look forward to cutting edge technology blended with that essential quality of Britishness that marks every Triumph motorcycle as unique.
