Don't know anything about the other "Model" I'm guessing she too is a British example commonly called a "Bird" nice looking specimen!
It's Carol Cleveland from Monty Python. Here's a quote from her imdb page:

"Before her Python fame, Carol appeared in advertisements for Triumph motorcycles for 1971, in particular, the aborted Triumph 350cc Bandit model."

Damn it I can't believe I didn't get that one! My Python club priveledges will be revoked now!
I have always loved Carol, she had a great quote where she said that the Pythons wrote all of the
best female roles for themselves, so she was usually the girlfriend, not a central charachter.
Good Eye catching this one!

As for the Triumph scanned image, ah, now I remember! See that before...too bad they closed shop at that point.

Obligatory pic...has this been posted before?

The bike shop on the van in the background was well known in the NYC metro area, but not for good reasons.

Housing for the ring and pinion gears of the final drive.
Well finned for cooling.

They didn't want any BMW-like dramas.
