New Delhi: 1st December 2011 – Following on from the announcement of entering the Indian market, Triumph Motorcycles, the iconic British motorcycles manufacturer has announced its 2012 line-up for India today. Triumph Motorcycles will bring in seven of its most prominent bikes from each of its four model families (Roadster/ Super sports, Adventure / Touring, Modern Classics and Cruisers).
The offering will begin with the modern interpretation of the British parallel-twin, Bonneville followed by the iconic naked sports bikes Speed Triple and Street Triple. Alongside these will be the exemplary off-roader Tiger 800XC and class-leading super sport bike Daytona 675. Closing the circuit would be the power cruisers of the family – Triumph Storm and the Rocket III.
Speaking about the selection of the models, Ashish Joshi, Managing Director, Triumph Motorcycles India said, ‘We deliberated over the range of bikes to bring into India and decided to bring in these models to showcase the Triumph range. We have bikes which can cater to different needs – from 675cc Super Sport bike the Daytona 675 to 2300 cc Rocket III. The Indian market offers good potential and as a company, we are confident that each of our seven models within its individual category will be a trailblazer in very short time; similar to other markets we are present in.’
Ashish further added on Triumph’s plans specific to India, ‘Our strategy for the Indian market will be well phased out. The first part of the roll-out plan will be a CKD assembly facility which will enable us to pass on duty savings to the customer.’
Triumph Motorcycles will showcase all the bikes entering India at Auto Expo 2012 at the side of its plans for its consumer and business influencers
