Description:
The Triumph Tina was a small and low performance scooter with a 100 cc two stroke engine, an automatic transmission, and a handlebar carry basket for carrying the groceries back from a shopping trip.

In 1962, despite internal opposition from those who felt it would dilute the macho image of the brand, Triumph produced two machines, 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.

An extensive marketing campaign was carried out, fronted by a pop star of the era, Cliff Richard, but despite this the 'Triumph Tina' sold in small numbers. Sales of the three wheel Tricycle model (for those unsure of their ability to balance) were even worse with only 10 to 15 sold, and it was quickly discontinued. These machines absorbed a large amount of development and marketing capital.

The scooter was renamed the Triumph T 10 in 1965, and discontinued about 1970.

The Triumph Tigress was very different from these models, available in either a 175cc 2 stroke single, or 250cc 4 stroke twin engine and selling well to the enthusiast market through the 1960s.
