Triumph has officially announced its plans to enter the Indian market. The British motorcycle manufacturer released a statement which disclosed the appointment of Ashish Joshi as its Managing Director for the company’s India operations. Mr. Joshi was heading European operations for Royal Enfield prior to his appointment at Triumph. No information on the official launch or the models to be sold in India have been disclosed yet but we expect the Rocket III and the Bonneville T100h to be the first Triumph motorcycles to go on sale in the country.

The appointment of Ashish Joshi is a signal of our seriousness about success in India. I wish him the best and look forward to comprehensive growth from the Indian market,” Nick Bloor, CEO of Triumph Motorcycles, UK, said.
