Triumph, the over 100-year old bike company, is all set to ride into India [ Images ] this year. The Leicestershire-based company is currently looking for an Indian partner, who could handle the imports and distribution in the subcontinent. The company will increase the range of models after evaluating the response to the initial lot, which will be available in select outlets later this year. Peter Huckin, export sales co-coordinator, Triumph Motorcycles, said, "We are in talks with some of the Indian manufacturers, who have the expertise to market and sell Triumph bikes here. The talks should fructify before the year end."

The Triumph executive, however, declined to comment on the companies, which were in talks with it. Sources said Bajaj [ Images ] might be one of the companies the UK group is holding talks with. Representatives of Bajaj, which was reportedly negotiating with Triumph for an equity buyout, had visited the company's plants in the UK. However, according to Huckin, there were no talks of stake sale to the Indian company. The company currently has no plans to manufacture the cult bikes in the country and plans to bring the motorcycle as completely built unit. It believes that the market for high capacity bikes in India is very encouraging. Huckin said, "India is an emerging market with high aspirations. There sure lies a market for Triumph here."

Even as the company is charting out its India plans, it remains undecided about the number of bikes it will import every year. It will disclose the pricing details only when proper import duties are levied on the bike. The retail price of the cheapest Triumph bike is 5,000 pounds (approximately Rs 3.85 lakhs), while the most expensive one is available at 12,500 pounds (approximately Rs 9.62 lakhs). Triumph's debut in India follows similar interest shown by other two-wheeler biggies, including Yamaha, Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki and Harley Davidson to name a few.

Re: Triumph coming to India

After mulling over its decision to enter the burgeoning Indian two-wheeler market for a considerable time, iconic British motorcycle manufacturer Triumph is finally on the verge of launching its comprehensive range of motorcycles in India. While finishing touches to the final game plan are still underway, the first Triumph motorcycles will shortly reach India as Completely Built Units (CBU). Expect the famous bike maker’s initial offerings to include their impressive 1,050cc, three-cylinder Tiger and Sprint models, the timeless twin-cylinder 865cc Bonneville, the massive 2,294cc Rocket III, 675cc Daytona sportsbike and the Speed Triple Street models.

Re: Triumph coming to India

With the Indian two-wheeler market undergoing its golden era currently, the new feather in the hat comes by the name of Triumph Motorcycles. Looks like plans have taken shape and Triumph will make the big announcement by next month. The bikes are most likely to be brought in as CBUs (Completely Built Units) and reportedly Triumph is in talks with a local manufacturer for support too. Triumph America, Speed Master, Speed Triple and Rocket III come across as the most likeable models to be brought to the Indian mainland. Company has not officially confirmed anything yet, but they haven't said 'no' either. Nevertheless, it's time to rejoice in the Indian market. - Bike India.

Re: Triumph Motorcycles Soon Coming To India

Hi, Triumph may develop 125cc motorbike for emerging market like india.

The UK's Triumph Motorcycles could soon take on domestic biggies, Hero MotoCorp, Bajaj and TVS, in the mass market bike segment. The niche bike-maker is developing a new 125cc model for launch by end of next year in emerging markets, sources close to the development said. This will be a marked strategy shift for the company, whose current portfolio focuses on premium-end two-wheelers.

“Officials from Triumph had met component suppliers during a meet in 2011. They had talked about plans for a cheaper, 125cc model, which may be built in India by next year,” a person close to the development said. Triumph Motorcycles, however, did not respond to e-mail queries. At present, the smallest bike in its portfolio is the 675cc Daytona, going up to the 2,300cc Rocket III.
