We’re coming to you with brochures and spec sheets of all these bikes, but here’s what you need to know about the Bonneville, which will probably be the volume seller for the brand. An air-cooled DOHC parallel-twin engine displacing 865cc puts out 68 PS at 7,500 rpm and 68 Nm of torque at 5,800 rpm.
A whole load of accessories will be available for all these bikes, and these are detailed in the brochures coming your way.
Triumph India is headed by Bajaj Auto’s former General Manager of Sales, Mr. Vimal Sumbly. The company will have dealers operational and ready to take bookings in Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad and Bangalore during 2013, followed by dealerships in Pune, Ahmedabad, Chandigarh, Jaipur, Chennai, Hyderabad, Cochin and Goa in the coming months.
