A few weeks back, I came up with a write up that the UK based Triumph Motorcycles is seriously considering the idea of entering the Indian market. Now it’s official. Yes, the company is sure to bring its bikes into the sub continent.
The company has appointed a top management team with Mr. Ashish Joshi as the Managing Director for India. Prior to joining Triumph, Mr Ashish was heading the European operations for Royal Enfield and established the company’s business in Europe. He has more than 16 years of experience in the Asian and European nations.
Mentioning about Triumph Motorcycles, foray into the Indian, “India is a very important motorcycle market and Triumph has assessed it carefully before deciding to step in. We see it as the next step in our global business model. The appointment of Ashish Joshi is a signal of our seriousness about success in India. I wish him the best and look forward to comprehensive growth from the Indian market” said Mr Nick Bloor, CEO of Triumph Motorcycles, UK.
Triumph Motorcycles Limited is a 100% privately owned company. Our parent company is called Bloor Holdings Limited, which is owned by John Bloor. Triumph has five world class factories around the world, all 100% owned by the company itself. Two of these factories are based in Hinckley in the UK, the other three are in Chonburi, Thailand. The company has around 750 dealers in 35 countries. Around 80% of its product are sold outside of the UK.
Though there is no official confirmation from the company regarding the date of launch and the models that are decided for India, I personally feel that the Rocket III, one of Triumph’s flagship models and a best seller as well will be one of the first to be launched by the company in India.
