Last time at the Auto Expo in 2012, Triumph did a lot of hullabaloo about their brand and its motorcycles and needless to say it did create some tremors in the industry. However, they went dormant for months, or let us say years all together for reasons which we should not be bothered about.
However, they always maintained they are coming and a confirmation came when a ‘Block Your Date‘ mailer hit our inboxes very recently. Interestingly, we still have a handful of people who are not ready to believe that Triumph is really coming, just like we do not believe there will be a Yamaha 250 for India 😀
Nonetheless, for them and for all of us, here is a snapshot which should make you believe they are well on their way and the launch of their products will happen on the coming 28th of this month. This pic shared by our friend Vishwa Prakash showcases the banner which proudly reads “Triumph, India’s 1st Dealership“.
Vishwas snapped this at St. Marks Road in Bangalore and there is a Mitsubishi dealership which we can see. Possibly, its the same person who will hold these two dealerships in Bangalore.
Triumph has plans to launch dealerships in Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore this year. And if you did not find your city’s name in that list, they have plans to launch a dealership in Pune (our city :)), Ahmedabad, Chandigarh, Jaipur, Chennai, Hyderabad, Cochin and Goa after that, possibly sometime in 2014.
According to the unconfirmed word we have, Triumph will officially launch 3 models from its stables on November 28th in India which include Daytona 675, Bonneville and Tiger 800 XC. Other models may/will come a little later, again possibly next year when Triumph settles down in India.

And for all those waiting for a smaller Triumph, here is the official sketch of its 250cc mini Daytona.
