Triumph Motorcycles India announced the second edition of its exclusive and much sought-after Tiger Trails experience to Spiti. While safety is a crucial part of the Triumph value system, honing the safety do’s and don’ts doesn’t necessarily have to be boring. This year’s Triumph Tiger Trails will open the vast, serene vistas of the Spiti landscape to 15 Triumph Tiger customers. With a route less travelled and emergency teams in tow, these riders will ride through the Valley, building camaraderie over a common interest while picking up riding tips and tricks. As a brand, Triumph focuses on both the safety and the experiential aspect of adventure riding equally. Tiger Trails, the ride-cum-training program is carefully designed to cater to adventure riders who seek to move up from being riders to adventurers.
Speaking about the four-day programme, Mr Vimal Sumbly, Managing Director, Triumph Motorcycles India said, “The Triumph Tiger has been pivotal in building the adventure riding category and culture in India and is currently the market leader within this fast-growing segment. As the pioneer in this category, we have recently introduced the all new Tiger 800 and the Tiger 1200. With its state-of-the-art features and rider focused technology the new Tigers are suited for both on and off-road riding, ensuring superb stability and control. The Tiger Trails welcomes active riders who already travel extensively but also seek to make the most of their Tigers. We will be working on more of these curated programmes to further our commitment to building a safe riding culture in India, and to promote the spirit of adventure in the country.”
Taking a step beyond the Triumph Tiger Training Academy, 15 Triumph Tiger customers from all over India will participate in a 4-day trail starting from Shimla on 22nd July and will end on the 27th in Manali. The route chosen across Spiti will give the riders exposure to different terrains and challenges to make their ride/training holistic. Real-time training sessions outside the controlled environment of a track setup will help the riders prepare themselves for every riding scenario – whether man-made or nature-driven. Back-up facilities like a 4×4 sweep with mechanics and supplies such as medical kit, tool kit, puncture kit, spare parts, pumps etc, along with a VHF radio for communication will be with the riders all the times.
