Triumph Stall at Auto Expo 2012 – Models, Details & Prices

Our generation would be a witness to the oncoming of the iconic bike makers – the UK’s mighty Triumph. Triumph is starting their operations in India with 7 new launches from their 2012 international lineup. And Triumph was in full swing when they displayed all the models at the Auto Expo 2012. Let’s take a closer look at what all the hoopla is all about.

I would be listing down all the 7 models in ascending order of their price along with the major details of the bike. Read them and understand what these might be made up of. Also listed are the ex-showroom prices of all the bikes which were given to me by the officials (more aptly a beautiful lady) at the Triumph stall at the Auto Expo 2012.

All the Triumph models would come with a 2 year and unlimited mileage warranty as standard.

If this were not a public forum and you people were not reading this, I would have expressed my feelings better. This is the hugest bike I have ever seen with my naked eye. Considering its specs, It feels it could gulp down roads without burping even once. If you are eyeing this colossal creature start gymming right away. If God gives me immense money and close all my senses, this Rocket would be my choice!
