That's certainly the case with Triumph Motorcycles. They started off with great products and customer loyalty, but mismanagement and poor product innovation led them to government bail-outs and labour unrest. Finally, the government would bail-out no longer, and the company went bust. Sure enough, someone bought the brand rights, and started fresh, and the new Triumphs are very popular and great bikes, see
