Triumph's FaceBook page claims product around November. Expect to see Street Triple,Daytona and Rocket. No word on Bonneville & Thruxton though. I would say bring it on Triumph, it's about time!

Well i would take even this with a pinch of salt, unless they announce dealers I would just not believe their news. They have been making news for all wrong reasons and i hope this is also not one of it.

PS: Tiger XC 800 does look attractive.

You and I have the "Overnight camping" idea - remember?

Overdrive's prediction is that the prices would be more than what was announced at the time of AutoExpo 2012. Mainly due to the dollar appreciating against the rupee!

Street Triple- Then--> Rs 5.75 lakh Now -->Rs 8 lakh CKD


If this is the price range - I sure am out of Triumph race! :(

Bonneville ex-showroom 7 lakhs means the Bangalore OTR price should hover around 9 lakhs. Thats steep!

I feel we may see a showroom some where on the hosur road, electronic city area.
I do remember on the camping idea but now i am getting worried on the expected pricing by overdrive. I can't imagine myself buying ST for 8 L Ex-Showroom. That's almost 9.3L on road in Bangalore

Thanks for the link. I am out of the race if triumph launches Street Triple at 8L ex-showroom.

I don't agree completely on the overdrive expected pricing. Here's why:
Street triple guidance value announced during auto expo Jan-2013 was 5.75 ex-showroom. Following are the changes impacting pricing since auto expo:
1 GBP was 84 INR in Jan-2012.
1 GBP is ~90 INR now and i see it going down in next coming months. So the hike is in region of 8% approx.
There is no change in customs duty or CVD for a CKD import. So no hike in duty for ST, Speed Triple, Bonnie or Daytona. Please correct me if i am wrong.

Basic customs duty for CBU has been hiked by 15%. So bikes like Scrambler and Rocket will be more expensive.
Also triumph dealers could be initially selling with a low margin to keep prices down.

Also triumph has delayed by a long time and if they want to succeed in selling good numbers then i believe they might announce mouth watering introductory pricing for limited number of vehicles which i see happening in all probability.

They are very non committal on the pricing on the FB page. Understandably. Am sure customer sentiment is also going to be a factor in considering pricing (glancing at Bajaj/KTM).

Bonnie at ex-showroom of 7 lacs will put it bang in Iron 883 territory. I think that's too steep, a 5'er is what I am hoping Triumph will launch it at

I'd have imagined the same. If they have to compete with H-D, the prices have to spot on from Day 1. Triumph cannot go wrong with the pricing. But if Overdrive's prediction comes true, I do not believe there will be many takers!

Mate,
Did you see the latest news? GS have further downgraded Indian Rupee and it is widely expected that the dollar might need 65 INR. With this development am sure GBP will shoot much further and border the 100's.

Taxes have been increased on the motorcycle which has made all SBK pretty expensive. The FZ costs 13 Lakhs compared to 10ish when I paid for it 2 monsoons ago.

True but RBI is trying hard with various measure including tightening liquidity and Govt is increasing FDI limits for strengthening rupee.

IMO during recent union budget, basic customs duty was hiked from 60 to 75% for CBU import. I believe for CKD from Thailand- its still 10%.

this is exactly what I was thinking. The GBP rate/USD rate "May" not play that significant a role as the originating country is Thailand and the agreement stands at 10%.

Lets wait and watch!
