The Triumph Daytona 250 will not be launched even after the Bajaj partnership.

Triumph had unveiled the sketch of the Daytona 250 at the 2013 EICMA Motor Show and had stated that the motorcycle will have its global debut by 2015. However, this plan hasn’t materialised for Triumph as the British motorcycle maker has confirmed that the Daytona 250 will not be launched.

Nonetheless, the partnership with Bajaj will help Triumph to get into the mass-market segment and produce motorcycles ranging from 400cc-800cc. Currently, Triumph’s portfolio consists of 675cc and above motorcycles. The global partnership between Triumph and Bajaj was very recently announced and the development of mid-capacity motorcycles has already commenced.

In an interview with the media, Mr. S Ravikumar, President of Business Development, Bajaj Auto, said “the new motorcycles will combine the iconic heritage of Triumph with the back-end efficiencies of Bajaj, thus creating a unique product unavailable to both partners. As the joint products get launched, Bajaj will create a network commensurate with the volumes planned. Triumph India will continue to report to Triumph UK for the foreseeable future; nearer the launch of the new motorcycles, Bajaj will assume leadership for the Indian market.”

It will take at least 2-3 years for the motorcycles from this partnership to launch in the Indian as well as global markets. We couldn’t go wrong expecting a Street Single (with a 400cc engine) or a Dominar 675 in the coming years.

Bajaj, meanwhile, has a partnership with KTM and Husqvarna and also believes that there will not be overlapping between the companies locally as well as internationally.
