Already the British motorcycle maker Triumph had unveiled all their 7 models of motorcycles in the 2012 Auto Expo and also had plans of launching the same in India. The seven models unveiled include Tiger XC, Speed Triple, Street Triple, Storm, Bonneville, Daytona 675 and the Rocket III. Our fellow friends from BikeWale had a chat with the Triumph Motorcycle Company and as a response Triumph confirmed its launch in the third quarter of this year after which dealers, bookings and price of this bike would be revealed. The prices of these 7 models would range from 5,50,000 to 22,00,000 INR.

With the demand for quarter liter motor cycles in India, Triumph has also took this initiative including their range of motorcycles in order to compete with the likes of Kawasaki Ninja, KTM Duke and Honda CBR 250R. Triumph has plans to start its productions in the new plant being set up in Narsapur near Karnataka from next year. However prices mentioned above would be tentative and is expected to be lower or higher due to depreciating rupee and other macro-economic factors. We would update more details and specifications of this quarter motorcycle shortly since it has not been revealed till date.
