The Tryphonos motorcycle concept began over twenty years ago as a University engineering thesis. The motorcycle has been developed with a number of prototypes over the years each of which has received glowing reviews from the motorcycle press as well as professional motorcycle racers who have helped in its development.

Isle of Man TT

In 1995 a prototype was entered into its first race the Isle of Man Senior TT. Having never raced before and using the dated oil cooled Suzuki 750 powertrain it achieved an 11th position in the hands of Shaun Harris who was particularly impressed by its stability on the island circuit.
