After much ado, the iconic British motorcycle brand — Triumph Motorcycles — has finally forayed into the Indian market.

Triumph has launched ten of its world-renowned products here. Be it the iconic Bonneville, the legendary Speed Triple, the largest production motorcycle — Rocket III Roadster or the original café racer — Thruxton, Triumph’s Indian range has something for every deep-pocketed Indian motorcycling enthusiast.

Classics

Bonneville is everything that Triumph stands for — class, sophisticated yet brash charm and drop-dead gorgeous looks.

The classic Bonneville models get their name from the Bonneville Salt Flats where speed freaks gallop unabashed setting speed records in the process.

The 865-cc engine in the three different Bonneville variants churns between 68 and 69 ps of power.

Ex-showroom price

Triumph Bonneville: Rs 5.75 lakh

Triumph Bonneville T100: Rs. 6.6 lakh

Triumph Thruxton: Rs. 6.75 lakh

Roadsters

Pentagonal twin headlamps give Triumph’s naked streetbike — Street Triple — an irresistible charm and feel. It uses the same three cylinder mill as the Daytona 675 which red lines at an astounding 12,000 RPM.

Another roadster in the lineup — Speed Triple borrows inspiration from race track bikes with its distinct twin headlamps, tall stance and under seat exhaust.

Ex-showroom price

Triumph Street Triple: Rs 7.5 lakh

Triumph Speed Triple: Rs 10.4 lakh

Adventure

Triumph Daytona 675R is a 600cc super sports bike armed with all the bells, whistles and carbon fibre bits to boot. It develops 128 PS of power at 12,500 RPM and can be cajoled to reach over 14,400 RPM.

Tiger 800 XC is a globe trotter in the true sense of the term. Its large fuel tank, upright seating position and tough frame makes it an off road rugged bike like nothing else.

Ex-showroom price

Triumph Daytona 675R: Rs 11.4 lakh

Triumph Tiger 800 XC: Rs 12 lakh

Super Sports

Triumph Thunderbird Storm is a hardcore no-nonsense cruiser and packs a 1700cc engine machine that is designed to deliver when it matters. With minimalistic usage of chrome and blingy bits, all the attention is focused towards the twin headlamps, matte finish and black colour treatment. And surprise surprise, in terms of fuel efficiency, it even boasts of returning 18 to 20 kilometres to the litre!

Ex-showroom price

Triumph Thunderbird Storm: Rs. 13 lakh

Cruisers

Triumph Rocket III is powered by 2,294cc engine that can put a majority of cars on Indian roads to shame. Its humongous frame, unique driveshaft and chunky tyres make it an absolute head-turner on the roads.

Ex-showroom price

Triumph Tiger Explorer: Rs 17.9 lakh

Triumph Rocket III Roadster: Rs 20 lakh
