    Triumph to start bike sales in India,Vimal Sumbly appointed MD

    Triumph will be assembling some of its models in India at the CKD assembly facility, which is nearing completion at Manesar, Haryana, Triumph said.

    The firm, which had announced seven models priced between Rs 5.5 lakh and Rs 22 lakh for the Indian market at last year's Auto Expo here, said it is currently looking for dealer partners across strategic locations within India.

    "In the past few months, we have carefully assessed the market landscape and will be making well-honed efforts to provide our discerning customers with a complete brand experience," Triumph Director Sales & Marketing (Global) Paul Stroud said in a statement.

    He further said: "2013 is a very crucial year for Triumph Motorcycles in India and as a company, we are confident about the timing of our market entry."

    The company said Vimal Sumbly, former General Manager, Sales, at Bajaj Auto Ltd, will be its new Managing Director for India and spearhead the sales development and growth of Triumph in the country.

    The company said it "will be assembling some of its models in India at the CKD assembly facility, which is nearing completion at Manesar, Haryana" without sharing details.

    "Triumph is currently looking for dealer partners across strategic locations within India to ensure that customers across the country are able to enjoy the Triumph experience," it added.

    In January 2012 at the Auto Expo, Triumph had announced the launch of seven models, including the Bonneville with price tag of Rs 5.5 lakh, Tiger 800XC (Rs 11.4 lakh), Street Triple (Rs 5.75 lakh) and Rocket III Roadster (Rs 22 lakh).

    The Leicestershire (UK) headquartered bike maker is known for its cult bikes, including the iconic Bonneville, Daytona 675, and Rocket.

    2018 Triumph Tiger 1200 XRT, XCA review, test ride

    The setting was oddly American for the southernmost tip of the European landmass – in Almeria, Spain, to be precise – but the 2018 Triumph Tiger 1200 barely seemed to notice. The Tiger is the type of motorcycle that makes the world seem like a small place; so this absurd, American desert landscape only heightened the Tiger’s character. Considering I am able to make observations of this sort (rather than desperately seeking to defrost thanks to the bone-chilling European winter air) should tell you a lot about how well-suited to globetrotting the new Tiger really is.
