The last bike maker to come to India this year was Hyosung and it brought in two motorcycles, the ST07 and the GT650R. Recently it has been reported that Triumph motorcycles would be coming into India very soon. Nick Bloor, Triumph Motors CEO said that they had actually viewed the Indian market as a great place to start business in, since India is at the peak of automotive glory at the moment.
Trimuph’s earlier acquaintance was with Bajaj Auto. They were looking to form a coalition sort of thing with Bajaj, but then it never happened and this time around, they would be on their own in this country. The entry of Triumph Motorcycles would see a healthy competition between the various foreign as also local bike manufacturers in India. The company has already appointed its Managing Director in the form of Ashish Joshi, the former Europe head of Royal Enfield. Triumph haven’t announced when they would officially come to the Indian soil or which bikes would be coming into India and at what price point. Also, they haven’t leaked out a word about if these bikes would be locally assembled or come in as CBUs. Triumph currently has got Daytona65, Rocket III, Tiger 800 and also the Speed Triple in their arsenal. Watch this space for more information as and when the Triumph bikes would be launched in India.
