Iconic British motorcycle maker Triumph entered the Indian market on November 28 this year. However, dealerships are yet to be inaugurated which has led to many impatient prospective customers.
Today, we are informed that dealerships in Bangalore and Hyderabad will open for business by the third week of January, and the brand's Mumbai outlet will open soon after.
Even though the Bangalore and Hyderabad dealers are yet to open stores, bookings in these cities have already started. The booking amount for all motorcycles is INR 50,000, and deliveries are expected to take place from January 2014. Bookings for interested customers in Mumbai and New Delhi will start in the third week of January.
Triumph's Indian portfolio consists of ten products. While six of these products are assembled at a plant in Manesar, Haryana through CKD (Completely Knocked Down) kits, the rest are imported into the country via the CBU (Completely Built up Unit) route.
The CKD range starts with the Bonneville, and includes products such as the T100, Daytona 675 R, Street Triple, Speed Triple and Thruxton. The pricing extends from INR 5.7 lakhs for the Bonneville to INR 11.4 lakhs for the Daytona.
Triumph's CBU products include the Rocket III Roadster, Tiger Explorer, Tiger 800 XC and Thunderbird Storm with prices ranging from INR 12 lakhs to INR 20 lakhs. Note that all prices mentioned are ex-Showroom, New Delhi.
