    I don't think Auto Expo will reveal much, though Triumph has a stall there, and will display their bikes. From what we know, here are my assumptions:

    1) The 7 motorcycles which Triumph will bring in are the Bonneville, Daytona 675, Street and Speed Triple, Tiger 800 XC, the Rocket and the Thunderbird Storm

    2) From the press release, they will get all bikes in through the CKD route which means first finding a way/place to assemble the motorcycles.

    3) The above being the fact, pricing will not be announced till mid/2nd half of 2012, till they figure out how much it costs to import parts and assemble the motorcycles.

    4) The entire CKD process will take time, so expect first deliveries only end of year 2012 or early 2013. A few models might be delivered in 2012 and the rest should come in 2013 or so.

    I know it is a CKD my friend. The reason I am optimistic is that according Business Standard Motoring they are seriously thinking about setting up a assembly plant in India. And like the Hog the prices may well be a pleasant surprise.

    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.
