Good to see Triumph responding to prospect email queries.

Can't afford a Bonneville though the old school looks are great.

Waiting for the "cheaper" 350 single is the option. Wondering how cheap it might be?

Ashish Joshi and Triumph Motorcycles have parted ways according to ACI's report (Ashish Joshi quits as Triumph’s MD - News - Autocar India)

Hope this does not impact or delay India plans at Triumph.

Whoa. This is quite a shocker. Even before operations commence on our soil the MD has quit.

Hopefully their plans are on track and they don't do a Ducati on the interested folks.

That's a shocker! Hardly been a month since I was in touch with Ashish Joshi regarding bookings.

Any insider information on the reason for the split?

Hope this doesn't delay or hamper the launch in any way.

I don't think MD quitting could delay the launch. But the question is - why did he quit so early? that too before launch?

Interesting news, didn't he join them only months ago ? The names I heard who replace him for the time being , there were two names I read, were Brit , so it will bring into consideration their understanding of the Indian market.

Are they hiring ? Time to bring out my CV !

Hi djay99, thanks for the link, flattering report but not really useful unless done in India on Indian roads. We always knew that the Street triple is special !

Cheers.

Default Missing Link

Hello Guys,

You would recall that there was some talk about the missing one in the lineup for India - the Scrambler.

Just have a look at the "concept Scrambler" that was there in the Tridays - the biggest ever Triumph festival (picture from Bike India - June 2012, issue).

See what possibilities we are missing out in India - as its simply not available in the line-up

Definite Drool Mal

Best Regards & Drive/Ride Safe

I am hoping Triumph's slow (& frustrating) pace of entry into India is going to bring some positive results in the long run for Indian bike enthusiasts. Seeing the way Triumph has been going about their business on the international scene, they definitely seem to be a company that has a well defined direction positioning themselves very well between the Japanese and the premium European bike makers.

Seeing a report of about 250,000 bikes to be churned out of the Indian plant, they definitely are not going to be all Bonnevilles & Daytonas, but surely to keep the cash registers ticking the majority of the bikes are going to be small capacity high sales volume bikes. And with some reports of small capacity Triumphs being spotted testing in UK & Spain and speculations on a possible 250/350, I am sincerely hoping they will have a good offering of bikes at affordable prices for Indian bikers.
