'This four-stroke lightweight is game for a genuine 64-65mph; it will cruise energetically all day in the mid-fifties; and it will return fuel consumption figures little short of remarkable, whatever the throttle openings used.' - Motor Cycling. With the introduction of the 149cc Terrier in 1952, Triumph re-entered the market for lightweight commuter machines. A simple, compact, unitary construction four-stroke with four-speed gearbox, the Terrier was joined in 1954 by an enlarged version, the 200cc Tiger Cub, that offered 60mph-plus performance and 100mpg. A huge success, particularly with learners and younger riders, the Cub underwent continual development for the next 16 years, finally ending up with BSA Bantam cycle parts before being dropped in 1970. Offered for re-commissioning, this Tiger Cub was last taxed and MoT'd in 1990 and comes with a V5C registration document and the purchase receipt (1991).
