Triumph's India debut on November 28

Triumph has confirmed in a press release that it would be entering the Indian two-wheeler market on November 28, 2013. The British motorcycle manufacturer had generated a lot of curiosity among the performance deprived bikers in the country with its mouth watering pricing back at the 2012 Auto Expo in January when it first showcased its bikes for the Indian market. Given the rise in Dollar rates and other factors it seems that Triumph would not be able to stick to the original pricing, which it had announced at the 2012 Auto Expo.

It is almost certain that the iconic Bonneville, Street /Speed Triple, Daytona 675, adventure bike Tiger 800 XC and the flagship Rocket III would make its way to our shores.

Triumph is also developing a India-specific model which could also be exported to other Asian markets like the KTM Duke 390 and the up-coming Harley-Davidson 500cc bike.
