The Triumph Thruxton has a special place in the hearts of many motorcycle enthusiasts. Reborn and refined since 2016, the final edition pays homage to the original model from 1964. To celebrate the final run of this icon, I led the design of a promotional website aimed at emphasising the legendary status of this motorcycle. By focusing on the details and beauty of the final edition, we wanted to showcase the exclusive opportunity available for everyone to own a piece of motorcycling history.
The Thruxton Final Edition marks the end of a British legend and to celebrate this icon of the motorcycling world, we needed emphasise the hand-finished beauty and high-spec of this model while telling the story of the motorcycle which began in 1964. Using strong historical images and rich visuals, we were able to transition seamlessly into content focused on the final edition Thruxton.
By offering users the ability to explore the details and features of the Thruxton, it allowed us to tie in important aspects of the motorcycles heritage with the current final edition model. Through the use of rich content components such as interactive videos and animated explainers, we were able to cater the content for motorcycle enthusiasts who were considering purchasing the bike.
We saw an opportunity for true storytelling with the Triumph Thruxton and by using rich, interactive content we were able to tap into the core audience of motorcycle enthusiasts and collectors to engage with them on multiple levels. After the launch of the site, we tracked visitor numbers through to the main website and noticed that session duration had increased by 73% with overall sales enquiries up by 34% across the entire Triumph range.
