This is a little known fact, but once upon a time, British motorcycle manufacturer Triumph Open link in a new window used to make scooters. The first one came of the production lines in 1962.

Called the Triumph T10 Tina, it was supposed to jump on the scooter bandwagon. Scooters had become the fad in the UK, and Triumph thought it was a good idea to have one, despite reservations by the then CEO Edward Turner Open link in a new window.

Though designed by Turner himself, it cost Triumph dearly, since they didn't sell many, and the money should have been spent fighting off the Japanese motorcycles. Later renamed to just T10, they stopped making them in 1970.

The Triumph T10 Tina scooter is a 100 cc, 2-stroke engine with a top speed of 45 mph. It got 100 mpg and had a weight of 143 pounds.
