Triumph first showcased its products in India at the 2012 Auto Expo and finally put its bikes on sale on the 28th of November, 2013. Even though the company is selling 10 motorcycles in India, not a single dealership is ready yet with Hyderabad and Bangalore showrooms on the verge of opening doors. These two dealerships are accepting telephonic bookings and will commence deliveries in the first week of February. Meanwhile the next dealerships are coming up in Mumbai and Delhi, two relatively large markets for premium bikes.
You can go ahead and book any of the ten Triumph motorcycles in India, right from the humble Bonneville which costs Rs. 5.7 lakhs to the mammoth Rocket III which is priced at Rs. 20 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi). Booking amount is standard irrespective of the bike, which at Rs. 50,000/- is spot-on for Triumph lovers to come one step closer to owning the British marquee’s amazing machines. Upcoming Triumph dealers in Mumbai and Delhi will start taking bookings in the second half of next month with deliveries commencing in March.
Triumph is betting heavily on the Indian market and the company is not only focussing on sales but also after sales support and cost of ownership. The company plans to make a good base in the Indian market with these 10 motorcycles (6 of these are locally assembled) as it plans to foray into the volume segment in 2015. Triumph is already testing its single-cylinder, quarter-litre bikes which will be manufactured solely in India and sold the world over. The 250cc Triumph engine will find its way into a street-fighter Street Single and supersport Daytona 250.
