Triumph Acquires Electric Bike Brand Oset for Youth

Investing in the Next Generation Because “You Never Forget your First”

Triumph Motorcycles has recently acquired an electric bike brand that makes specialized machines for kids – and with Oset showing off sales figures that put Harley-Davidson (or Indian)’s similar category to shame, we’re eager to lsee the first brainchild leave the lab.

A press release from Oset states that they’ve sold over 40,000 bikes in the past 18 years, with the founding of the brand being a result of a simple desire: A father (Ian Smith) wanting to make an electric off-road bike for his son (Oliver Smith).

“Oset’s offerings are specialized by age and even discipline; five of its seven models are trials bikes,” states a report from MotorcyclistOnline

“The general off-road Oset MX-10 model is designed for 4-to-7-year-olds, while models like the Oset 24.0R is claimed as appropriate for ages 9 to adult.”

Off-road, you say?

Wait, didn’t we hear something along the lines of Triumph gunning to release a motocross and enduro model, “to be developed with motocross and enduro legends Ricky Carmichael and Iván Cervantes”?

Yup – and while we don’t know much more than y’all on the subject, we’re curious to see if the Brit-based bike brand will put Oset in the same lab as Carmichael and Cervantes…
