In 1962, despite internal opposition from those who felt it would dilute the macho image of the brand, Triumph introduced a new scooter, designed by Edward Turner, to tap into a strong demand that had been identified by market research for a simple and easy-to-ride 'shopping basket' vehicle. The Triumph Tina with its single cylinder, two-stroke, 100cc engine used a continuously variable transmission (CVT) system with a centrifugal clutch; the system had been patented by Turner and Triumph in May 1959. The engine was mounted on the swing arm. An extensive marketing campaign was carried out fronted by a pop star of the era, Cliff Richard. The Tina was marketed to women and advertising focused on the ease of its operation. This Triumph Tina is completely original and has never been restored; the last time this scooter was used was thirty six years ago in 1977. We have been informed by the vendor that the engine kicks over and is a straight forward restoration project.
