In terms of pricing, the upcoming 2018 Triumph Tiger 1200 is expected to carry a premium over the model it replaces which retailed for INR 18.75 lakh (ex-showroom). However, the different in the prices over the outgoing model might not be much as the motorcycle is expected to arrive via the CBU route and thus benefit from the revised tax structure.
