Triumph India is launching officially in India today, and as always, we are reporting LIVE from the event. In our previous post we brought to you the news of the official site of the bike maker going live, along with the range of products which it may bring to India.
After having delayed their entry to the India market by about 2 years, today is the big day when the likes of the Daytona, Street Triple, Speed triple and the might Rocket II may descend down on the Indian tar. With two dealerships already announced in Mumbai and Bangalore, Triumph is headed for a cautious start. We expect more dealerships to open very soon.
The company has set up its assembly plant in Manesar, India, and most of the bikes on sale will be assembled there. There is no word on the prices yet, but we expect the a reasonable 6-7 lakh rupees for the Daytona, which may be the hot favorite among us Indians.
The models listed on the new Triumph website include the Tiger 800XC and Tiger Explorer in the adventure category and Bonneville, Bonneville T100 and Thruxton in the Classic segment. Then you have the massive Rocket III Roadster and Thunderbird Storm populating the Cruiser genre.
However, the meat of the market for India is in the Roadster and Supersports categories where the more affordable, more likeable and more suitable bikes for this market reside. The Speed Triple and Street Triple populate the Roadster segment, while the highly anticipated Daytona 675 ABS and Daytona 675R are decorating the Supersports section.
Stay tuned for live updates from the launch
