Earlier this month Mr David Cameron the current British Prime Minister visited India along with a huge number of delegates. These delegates comprised of industry leaders from Britain looking to foray into or expand further within India. Among these delegates were representatives from Triumph Motorcycles looking to fast forward their India foray by ironing out issues both political and industrial.
Back in February-March 2012 Triumph had already acquired the land in Karnataka to begin construction of their third global factory, which initially would cater to assembling the CKD bikes for India and then further expand towards production of the bikes. This would also include the much hyped about lower capacity Triumph rumoured to be a single cylinder, based on the Speed Triple. New information suggests that Triumph already has a functional R&D centre in India working on this project.
Triumph made its grand India entry back in January 2012 at the Auto Expo in New Delhi and they were welcomed with a lot of enthusiasm. The tentative Triumph Motorcycle prices for India seemed almost unreal and a lot of enthusiasts have been waiting to lay their hands on their favourite Triumphs. Since then there has been a lot of ‘information’ that neither Triumph nor the people who said it confirm, so the wait for any sort of communication and confirmation from Triumph Motorcycles still continues, we definitely hope 2013 will be the year. We will be following this story very keenly so do keep checking back for the latest developments on Triumph Motorcycles Indian entry.
