Triumph Motorcycles to launch in India


According to AutoCarIndia, British motorcycle brand, Triumph is soon going to enter the burgeoning Indian two-wheeler market for a considerable time. Attracted by the exponential growth of the Indian auto industry, Triumph Motorcycles is the newest brand which is linked with reports claiming about its launch in India.

First started manufacturing motorcycles back in 1902 under Triumph Engineering, Triumph Motorcycles were bought by John Bloor in 1984 due to bankruptcy. John realized that Triumph needed revamp as the market was getting flooded by faster Japanese bikes. John relaunched the Triumph in a new avatar which was good enough to compete with the new age Japanese bikes.

Triumph has already taken its wide range in approximately 33 countries around the world and finally India is going to its next destination. As there is no formal communication, it is been speculated that Triumph will soon launch its bikes as Completely Built Unit (CBU) which means it will import fully built motorcycles for retail sale in India.
