    i can imagine as norton were playing with the rotary engine i guess others bikes of that generation were attempting other ideas.

    but the machining required for the oval pistons were possibly triumphs downfall as the technology wasn't around in them days.

    reboring they would alway pose a problem

    It was long before the rotary so, yes, its no wonder that Triumph couldnt make it work.
