During this period the Bike Trader website attracted a total of 31.8 million searches, 28% of which came via a mobile device.

1. Daytona
2. Tiger

6. Sprint
7. Thunderbird
8. Rocket

10. Trophy

Commenting on the rise in Triumph searches, Dan Tye, Editor, Bike Trader said: "You've got to hand it to Triumph, they've spent millions on designing new bike models over the past five years and the result is that they're making exactly the kind of bikes people want to buy and own. What we're seeing here is an increase in the number of bikers searching through our website to try and get their hands on a secondhand 2009, 2010, 2011 or 2012 Triumph model. Sure, Triumph might not have made it into our top ten, but an increase in 33,000 unique visitors searching for a Triumph over the past six months shows that there is an increasing appetite for a machine from the UK manufacturer."
