Ian collects his Triumph Sprint 955i

POSTED: 05/05/2021

Ian was very happy to collect his 2002 Triumph Sprint 955i

A lovely customer of ours, Ian, was very keen for us to share news of his experience with our team here at Laguna Motorcycles as well as Triumph UK over the past year, which we are of course very pleased to do!...

Back in April 2020, Ian, who is a front line worker for the NHS, had his beautiful Triumph Sprint 955i stolen from his home. Not only was this extremely upsetting for Ian, but he was also unable to get to and from work as he no longer had any transport.

Thankfully, after a plea for information about his bike via social media, Ian's Triumph Sprint was found three days later - but sadly it was in need of a lot of work before it could be ridden again.

As soon as our team at Laguna Motorcycles in Maidstone heard of Ian’s unfortunate situation, we reached out to him and offered our support. We collected his bike from Brighton and made sure that the repairs needed to his bike were taken care of, which included sourcing the many various components - some of which were rather tricky to secure due to the age of the bike and some supply chain challenges due to the Covid pandemic. Thankfully Triumph UK kindly assisted us and were able to provide many of the parts that Ian's bike required. Once the repairs were completed, we stored the bike for Ian until it was appropriate for him to travel out of area to collect his bike. 

In the meantime, Triumph UK also stepped up to kindly provide Ian with a Triumph Tiger 800 XCX model from their fleet to keep him mobile at a time when he was needed most - delivering it to him as swiftly as possible so he could continue to work.

Ian did in fact decide to purchase the Tiger XCX motorcycle that Triumph UK lent him after enjoying his time on the bike... and last week he was finally able to travel up to Laguna Motorcycles to collect his beloved Sprint 955i - check out the photos below!

We're very pleased to have been able to help Ian alongside Triumph UK, in his time of need and during a tough year for many.

Laguna Motorcycles Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Laguna Motorcycles Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
