Norman Hyde unveiled the first Hyde Harrier at the 1987 Motorcycle Show. Described as a “sleek road-legal 130 mph cafe racer” it transformed the performance and handling of Triumph’s twin and triple motorcycles. Hyde Harrier Kits are available for Trident/Rocket3 models, Bonneville and A65. A mix of modern technology with classic design looks, combining the Triumph race shop experience of Norman Hyde and the knowledge of Britain’s top chassis builders Harris Performance.
In 2008 Norman decided to create the Hyde Harrier Jubilee to celebrate the 21st anniversary of the Harrier and the 50th anniversary of the Triumph Bonneville. Designed to utilise a Triumph Bonneville (2000 onwards pre-EFI) as a donor vehicle, the Harrier Base Kit contains replacement frame & swinging arm, fuel tank, seat unit, rearset footrests, rear mudguard and prop stand, plus other necessary fittings. So the only major items retained from the donor bike will be the headlight and instruments, front forks, wheels, engine and exhaust system.
