    The UK price for Daytona 675 is 8499 pounds.
    That in INR is 7,00,235.79/-

    Let's see what CKD might do. Fingers crossed!

      Anyone have any more details on the models Triumph is bringing? I'm planning to get a Tiger XC, and there are two versions, one with ABS and one without. Will they bring both, or will they go the route Suzuki did with the Bandit and bring just one model?

      From what I can gather, the ABS on the Tiger doesn't handle gravel/dirt/mud/rough roads well, and those riding in such conditions would be better off without it.

      Also, any hints on what accessories/options they might decide to bring in?

        No one seems to have any additional information on Triumph except the names of the models they are getting in. I guess we'll all to have to wait for a week for more details.

        I am as antsy to know about what/when/how much of Triumph as you are

            Also.

            Daytona and Street Triple (675 cc models, sub 800cc) would be at the display... but these models would be manufactured in India .. based on the response from the Auto expo.

            I was lucky enuf to look at all the models, to be dislayed at auto expo, in the warehouse here in delhi.

                Are you really serious? VFM stands for Value for Money in my parlance. There is no value to GT650 be it in brand or in product quality.

                    I wouldn't touch a GT650 with a barge pole leave alone call it a value for money proposition. Triumph is a iconic brand with an extremely rich heritage. Hyousung? Maybe 50 - 60 years from now (by which time I will be in my grave ).

                        Dude, are you comparing GT650 with Daytona? :O
                        I agree GT650N at its current price is VFM, but its no way close to Daytona.

                          Isnt Triumph assembled in Thailand too... and hasnt UK government signed a 'prefered' partner pact with India....

                          Things change so fast, a few months back Every Toms, Hairy, Dick was uploading articles and asking for votes to be branded as True Wanderer to get a free Non Valuable Brand\Quality bike. And now just because there are more options dissing at it.

                          Like it or not, and I say this as a Ninja 650R owner
                          1 - The GT650R, and GT650N are the ONLY products in the VFM 500+ cc category
                          2 - The Ninja 650R (2011) is no longer a product being sold so it has one category - The Extinct category
                          3 - The Ninja 650R (2012) is yet to be launched, if its launched at the same price point or is replaced totally then my point 2 is confirmed, and I would love to hate BAL-Kawasaki more than anything as it would mean even more lag in supply of spares etc

                          Having said that I would not buy the Hyosung for its novelty or brand, I would buy it for a different reason

                          I would probably love to own a Triumph for the reasons (just like) abhimanyu said!

                          That asides, the Daytona 675 is a new category both in India and internationally. An extra cylinder or the lack of it has its edge over an i4 or a twin for a bike of the same capacity.

                          PS: the royal enfield c500 is the most VFM 500cc bike in the market.
                          (Category is a cluster, ONE machine does not make a category)

                          PS: this is NOT a potshot at Vishwas. Am generally saying this in the interest of a more matured discussion towards the topic.

                            The prices!!!

                            According to Business Standard Motoring the prices of the Triumphs as indicated at Auto Expo:

                            The Speed Triple & Bonneville: Rs. 5.5 lacs
                            The Daytona 675: Rs. 7 lacs

                            Seriously well priced!

                            Here I come Daytona.....

                              Depends how one perceives it Satyen; added cylinder (I4) doesn't have punch & has to be revved a lot; while the triples needs less revving & more torqy. Personally, I wouldn't say there's an edge or no edge.
