    will have to wait and watch..

    They apparently haven't decided whether to import to go ahead with CKD operations... They do plan to have dealerships up and running by next year though...

    This is the mail that I received from Triumph y'day talking about their entry:

    28 June 2011

    Triumph motorcycles to enter Indian market


    For immediate release

    Iconic British motorcycle manufacturer Triumph has announced its intention to enter the Indian market.

    First established in 1902 and now based in Hinckley, Leicestershire, UK, Triumph Motorcycles has in recent years been the fastest growing motorcycle brand in the world. For many years Triumph has produced a wide range bikes which perfectly blend design, character, charisma and performance. At the heart of Triumphs philosophy is a commitment to developing truly unique motorcycles that offer a blend of distinctive design, intuitive handling and performance.

    The innovation and engineering passion that gave birth to the iconic Bonneville of the 1960s has today created a broad range of bikes suited to all motorcycle riders, including the striking 2.3 litre Rocket III, the unmistakable Speed Triple, the award-winning Daytona 675 supersport machine and the recently launched Tiger 800. Remaining true to their heritage, Triumph combines the very latest design and manufacturing facilities with the character and design flair that has always been associated with the famous swooping badge.

    Triumph has appointed Ashish Joshi as its Managing Director for India. Prior to joining Triumph, Ashish was heading the European operations for Royal Enfield and established the companys business in Europe. He has over 16 years of experience in Asia and Europe.

    Commenting on Triumphs entry to the Indian market Nick Bloor, CEO of Triumph Motorcycles, UK said: India is a very important motorcycle market and Triumph has assessed it carefully before deciding to step in. We see it as the next step in our global business model. 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.

    The mail was from their PR in Hinckley. I have quoted a portion of the long detailled mail.

    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.


    Sorry to aggravate you bro... I didn't mean to say that everybody has to like and want a supersports crotch rocket... And yes I am aware that "It Is Styled Like The 40's Bikes"...

    Triumphs have been always my favourites.

    They (I4's) have got one the most beautiful exhaust notes and their build quality is top class.
