Campagnolo Triomphe and Victory probably weren’t available until 1985. I assume Campy had nothing in the low/ mid range market at this time.

Here's what they had that year and how they performed according to one reviewer. Prices among these derailleurs for racing don't appear to differ that much, but I suppose that individual pricing isn't necessarily a good indicator as to why bikes were fitted with specific component groups.
