    Maybe it is all a matter of perspective.

    1cc really do not make a difference when there are 799 ccs to back it.
    The 125s,150s in Indian market are never to the point they are either 123.45 or 147.5 or 149.5 something like that.

    Also, the guy at the expo who said such on Triumph's behalf has said it casually and for the sake of saying-it seems without getting much into tech.
    What he should have said that the carbed look just raises the retro flair while the bike is actually Fuel Injected.

    Anyway, we are the guys with the passion for motorcycles and like the details - not everyone has to be like us.

    MV Agusta F3 vs Triumph Daytona 675R


    The lightest, most powerful and elecronically-advanced supersport machine you can buy - the new MV Agusta F3 goes up against the Triumph Daytona 675 R on the roads of northern Italy.

    Triumph Daytona 675R
    Launched last year, this is the R version of Triumph's popular Daytona 675. It doesn't have electronic rider aids except for a quickshifter, but you get Ohlins suspension, Brembo monobloc calipers, Pirelli Diablo Super Corsa SPs and carbon-fibre body parts.

    MV Agusta F3 675
    The lightest, most powerful and electronically advanced supersport machine you can buy. It has a short-stroke 675cc, inline three-cylinder engine and comes with traction control, variable power maps, electronic engine braking and slipper clutch.

    Triumph's news has died down the lane after a few days of activity. been seeing only the prices in their India website. atleast they can add some pics of their 2012 model lineup.
    hope prices come down and hope they set up atleast an assembly line for CKDs, better if they produce the 675cc Bikes here

    Triumph Motorcycles to set up assembly operations in Karnataka, India


    British motorcycle brand Triumph Motorcycle will launch a range of high performance motorcycles in the Indian market mainly aimed at motorcycle enthusiasts later this year. It showcased its motorcycle range at the 2012 Indian Auto Expo, where it pleasantly surprised many of the Indian enthusiast motorcycle riders when it announced prices of its CKD models, as the prices were very competitive. To assemble motorcycles in India, Triumph is said to have identified a 40 acre land parcel at Narsapura, situated on the Bangalore-Chennai highway.

    In the recent past, Karnataka has seen a big ticked investment in the motorcycle segment with Japanese motorcycle giant Honda setting up a plant close to the states capital of Bangalore. The countrys largest two wheeler maker, Hero MotoCorp, is also said to be finalizing plans to set up a plant close to Dharwad, Karnataka. With Triumph also planning to set up an assembly unit in Karnataka, this southern state will now play host to over four motorcycle makers including TVS, which has a manufacturing facility at Mysore.

    The location of Triumphs plant at Narasapura, off Bangalore, is said to be strategic as the motorcycle maker is said to have chosen this location due to its accessibility to the Chennai port. Triumph India also plans to build affordable premium sports motorcycles with displacements of about 350cc in the coming yearsand these motorcycles could also be exported out of India. Therefore, the location to high quality port infrastructure is quite critical to the motorcycle maker, which will also assemble motorcycled through the completely knocked down(CKD) kit route, with the kits arriving from Great Britain.

    Although the Triumph assembly unit will take nearly a year to become operational, the motorcycle maker is said to be all set to launch its motorcycles in the Indian market over the next few months. It is also said that Triumph plans to price four of its models very competitively, despite them being brought into India as CBUs initially. These models would later be assembled by Triumph once the assembly unit is up and running. That said, 3 motorcycle models in Triumphs 7 bike portfolio for the Indian market would continue to remain completely built units(CBU) as they are low volume products.

    Triumph Motorcycles, the iconic British motorcycle brand, has always set the pace for category winning machines that offer a blend of design, character, desirability and performance combined to create truly distinctive motorcycles.

    At the recently concluded 11th Auto Expo in Delhi we have showcased our model range for India which has motorcycles from all our product families and include the parallel-twin, Bonneville, the iconic naked roadsters Speed Triple and Street Triple, the off-roader Tiger 800XC, class-leading supersport bike Daytona 675 and the cruisers Storm and Rocket III.

    Guideline ex-showroom (Delhi) prices for our bikes

    Bonneville INR 5.50 Lakh
    Street Triple 675 INR 5.75 Lakh
    Daytona 675 INR 7.00 Lakh
    Speed Triple INR 8.00 Lakh
    Tiger 800XC INR 11.40 Lakh
    Storm INR 17.00 Lakh
    Rocket III Roadster INR 22.00 Lakh

    True to our brand ethos each of the products entering the Indian market will dedicate itself to delivering a great riding experience through the fusion of a well-balanced, easy to handle chassis and strong, flexible engines. The result will be that of an inspiring range of motorcycles delivering usable performance blended with character.

    Dear Mr. Joshi,

    I am one of many riders here in India eagerly awaiting the arrival of
    Triumph. I have been following the news of Triumph's entry on the
    xBHP.com website for several months now. I was particularly excited
    because Triumph intended to bring many of the models it would sell
    here in as "Complete Knock-Down" kits, thus enabling it to bypass the
    ruinous customs tariffs and therefore to sell at a reasonable price.
    In the wake of the Auto Expo in Delhi, the preliminary pricing for the
    models Triumph will be bringing was released, and then was confirmed
    in an email you sent to another xBHPian, Arun, a couple of days ago,
    to wit:

    Bonneville INR 5.50 L
    Street Triple INR 5.75 L
    Daytona 675 INR 7.00 L
    Speed Triple INR 8.00 L
    Tiger 800XC INR 11.40 L
    Storm INR 17.00 L
    Rocket III INR 22.00 L

    I was dismayed to discover that the Tiger (the bike I intend to
    purchase, preferably in orange) was going to be priced like an import
    bike, rather than the CKD. In every other market, the Tiger sells for
    the equivalent of about 6-7lakh rupees ($13000 USD according to
    ADVrider.com and 7700GBP according to your website). Yet here, we're
    going to be charged nearly double that. This despite the fact that the
    Tiger, at 799cc, falls under the homologation limit for motorcycles
    brought into India, and therefore must be brought in as a Complete
    Knock-Down and assembled here. I am writing to seek an explanation for
    the enormous premium that Indian riders are going to be required to
    pay for this bike, seeing as how there is no customs duty to cover. I
    look forward to your reply.

    Sincerely etc


    Hoping I'll get a reply, and not a form letter, soon.
    Dear Sir,
    When a product is homologated for India, it incurs an additional financial burden on the factory.When i say additional burden I mean it runs into crores.So, any model which is homologated has to generate volumes enough so as to compensate the additional costs.These additional costs when get merged with the price of the bikes, the low volume bike tends to be proprtionately more expensive then its high volume siblings!

    Regards,
    Shift_ride

    Sorry for the late reply, but I understand the extra cost involved in homologating the bike. Triumph says they're going to build the Tiger in India, so they've already accepted the cost of the assembly line. They've accepted the homologation cost for the Daytona, Street Triple, and Bonneville, and while I'm sure each of those will be higher-volume than the Tiger, it won't be that much higher. It just strikes me that they've created a self-fulfilling prophecy with the Tiger; they claim they're not sure how well it will sell, but the unreasonably high price guarantees it won't sell as well as it could. The Tiger would be an attractive buy at 7 or 8 lakh. At 11.3 it's a much more difficult sell, and outside the price range of many who would otherwise buy it.
