In developed nations where you have all the latest models, a modern classic bike like the Bonneville stands apart in a crowd.

      Such a bike also probably shows one's mature taste in bikes. Our own Royal Enfield Classic has been a big hit in India. Not every body wants to ride a Super Sports crotch rocket.


      We had such bikes [Enfields] from the start of the biking in India. Will they look any different or modern in India? Will they stand out?
      Not against Bonneville but just asking.

        India is a funny unpredictable/market.

        On one hand it seems that full faired models (no matter however badly done) can easily command eyeballs and premium. On the other hand models like the Royal Enfield Classic has turned the fortunes for Royal Enfield and currently has a 10 -12 month waiting period.

        Not to mention pricing makes a lot of difference as well. Therefore its not very easy to comment.

          The success of various type of bikes show the diversity in Indian motorcycle demand (won't go as far as calling it a "mature market").
          No wonder we have most international bike-makers clamouring to have a presence Indian market (however miniscule)...

                  Of the little knowledge I have on vintage & modern Triumphs, I dont think they ever made a v-twin engine, unless you are referring to a parallel-twin.

                  BTW, call it a modern classic or retro street bike, the modern day Bonneville is miles apart from the latest royal enfields in terms of fit, finish, reliability or any other attribute people want to bring into a comparison as the similarity starts & ends with both being great british marques! If they can price the Bonneville at around 6 lacs on-road, I would definitely consider to own one & also see a really good market for it.

                              +1^^

                              Honestly seeing Royal Enfield present lineup and the years they have been in the Indian motorcycle Industry , Triumph Bonneville/Thruxton/Scrambler is exactly where Enfields should have been. Bonneville/Thruxton/Scrambler are perfect combination of Modern tech meets classic (retro) design giving one the best of both worlds (Only if you like Retro looks ).

                              Triumph are one of the most practical bikes too if you look at something to use day to day plus xtra power to cruise all day long and personally I feel Bonneville looks better than HDs in similar range ( I said it )

                              Comparo: Harley-Davidson Iron 883 vs. Honda Shadow RS vs. Triumph Bonneville

                              Also Speed triple/Street triple are probably one of the (may be the only) best looking and best sounding naked inline3 bikes out there in stock, one can only imagine their sound track with a after-market exhaust.
                              Guess from now on its all abt waiting and keeping fingers crossed
