  • Triumph to start India sales soon: xBhp News

    Source : Triumph gears up for India ops with a change in plans - Livemint

    Triumph Motorcycles, the British company which sells the iconic Thunderbird, Daytona 675 and Speed Triple bikes, will start selling in India in September after a change in its manufacturing plans, three people familiar with the plan said.

    According to the new plan, Triumph Motorcycles will start assembling completely knocked-down (CKD) kits at a factory in the Gurgaon-Manesar area in Haryana, a departure from its earlier plan to build a factory at Narsapura, near Bangalore.
    The company’s manufacturing plans in Karnataka will be implemented later, two of the three people cited above said. It is, however, unclear whether the company has bought land in Haryana to start an assembly plant or it will use the manufacturing facilities of a vendor.
    “They want to test the Indian market. The Gurgaon-Manesar belt will act as a stepping stone,” one of the three people familiar with the matter said. “At Narsapura, a full-fledged manufacturing facility will come up in 2015.”

        Doesnt it seem like a step backward by triumph. They are pushing the implementation of a manufacturing plant in Karnataka and are now concentrating solely on assembly. While the Karnataka plant would also have done that it was also the hope for a smaller affordable triumph.

          This is one the best news I have read in a long time. I really hope the CKD plan for the model line-up stays the same and also includes the XC series. My Bonnie dream seems to be coming closer to reality now...

            it is good that they are starting their operations in india.

            but it is not so good that they will not be manufacturing right away.

            let us hope that they get good response while they are "testing the waters" here, so that manufacturing plans can proceed as planned.

            btw, which models will be available for sale by CKD route and at what prices, which are the cities they will be targetting for sales and service network.

                the Karnataka plant is expected to be fully operational from 2015. till then they would only assemble the bikes.
                the prices would be too steep

                  getting from thailand & assembling it here would still be cheaper

                  I for one am happy that they are assembling & not getting into manufacturing just as yet

                    with the $ hitting 60, and the crazy tax for import / ckd , i guess the Bonni`s 5.5 lakh bench mark is already blown.

                    till horses fly , i shall keep my fingers crossed !

                    cheers and say a lill prayer

                      Not at all. The very initial plan was to set-up a CKD plant in Karnataka. Now they have decided to use the land for a full blown manufacturing facility and use another site for CKD assembly meanwhile.

                      Not really. Even though manufacturing costs are lower in Thailand, the logistics expense + 10% CKD duty will offset that advantage for sure. I do hope that Triumph will go aggresive on the pricing and take some part of the 10% hit themselves. I am really tempted to buy a 390 Duke right now but I'm holding it off till Triumph makes pricing announcements. I would be really heartbroken if the Daytona 675 ends up costing >8L on-road. Been saving up for it since more than a year.

                        I am really looking forward to buy speed triple. Can anyone try to calculate it's expected launch price in india.

                          the CKD duty,weakening rupee,unconfirmed plans regarding dealer/service network reach and such arent doing much to boost confidence.Probably owning these dream triples will still turn out be an exorbitant affair IMO.Not being pessimist though,i'd love to be blatantly proved wrong.hopefully the near future would forecast tough competition in the middleweight segment

                              Not sure if these tentative prices are inclusive of taxes and miscellaneous.
                              However I am convinced that each of the bike listed above will be a lot affordable....
