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

    Question Triumph in india 250 or 350cc (Is this true??)

    I really doubt this is True
    Triumph to enter Indian motorcycle market with all-new entry-level sportsbike

    http://img841.imageshack.us/img841/4041/triumph31.jpg

    British motorcycle manufacturer, Triumph, which has been evaluating the possibility of entering the burgeoning Indian motorcycle market for more than three years now, may have finally found a way to do so. The UK-based company has accepted the fact that its current range of bikes – which are fitted with engines of 675cc-2300cc capacity – may not be entirely suitable for the Indian market, since these would end up being far too expensive for the vast majority of buyers. So, Triumph has decided to develop an all-new entry-level sportsbike for emerging markets like India and South America and the machine is likely to be unveiled by mid-2012.

    The new Triumph motorcycle will be fitted with a 250cc-350cc liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, single-cylinder engine, with a power output of 25-30bhp. The bike is likely to take styling cues from its bigger brother, the Street Triple, and will first be launched Thailand (where Triumph already has a manufacturing facility), followed by India, Brazil and perhaps other Asian and South American markets.

    The entry-level sportsbike segment is one of the most promising motorcycle segments in the country and various manufacturers are now launching bikes that offer a mix of style and performance, at a price point that suits the Indian palate. Currently, the Kawasaki Ninja 250R (which costs about Rs 3.10 lakh) and the Honda CBR250R (priced at Rs 1.71 lakh) are two prime contenders in this segment, while Suzuki and Bajaj-KTM are also expected to launch 200cc-250cc bikes in India by the end of this year, or early next year.

    With growth slowing down in Europe and Japan, most motorcycle manufacturers now acknowledge the fact that emerging markets like Asia and South America is where the action will be, in the next few years. And they are beginning to engineer bike that will cater to the requirements of countries like India and Brazil, where buyers definitely want performance, but at a price point that’s significantly lower than what would be acceptable in Japan or Europe.

    It’s a win-win situation for Triumph, though, which will sell its 250cc-350cc bike not just in India and Brazil, but also, as an entry-level bike for beginners, in Europe and the US. Though there is no official word on this yet, we expect the all-new Triumph to go on sale in India by the end of 2012 and we expect the bike to deliver a lot of bang for the buck. Stay tuned for more details, which we should be bringing for you sometime soon!

    Guys, Triumph ain't far. Any day more news about Indian foray might come from them.
    As for now, I have an update about Triumph's PR agent. Read on...


    The iconic British motorcycle brand is all set to enter the Indian market. The launch date of their motorcycles is nearing now and this is evident by the recent development - Triumph has now appointed Eulogy! as their official PR agency for all the activities in the Indian market. This also includes the development and handling of strategic communications for their entry into the Indian market.

    Eulogy! India were chosen following on from a competitive pitch where a number of leading agencies from across India were short- listed. In addition to strategising and generating coverage , Eulogy! India will also be responsible for building the brand preference within the digital space. Ashish Joshi , Managing Director (India) , Triumph Motorcycles says , ‘India is the second largest two-wheeler market in the world and we see it as the next step in our global business model. It was thus imperative for us to have the right associates on-board. During the entire pitch process , we were very impressed with Eulogy’s approach , strategic thinking , innovative ideas and overall commitment to the brand. We look forward to a rewarding association with them.’

    Rohan Srinivasan, Director, Eulogy! India says, ‘Triumph Motorcycles is an iconic brand and I am delighted that they have chosen us as their PR partners. From the company’s rich heritage to exceptional design combined with outstanding engineering – the brand has provided a true riding experience to millions across the globe. With this in mind , our objective from the outset will be to establish Triumph as a leading brand in the market whilst, also establishing brand recall amongst target consumers.’
