Extremely disappointed with the pricing of the Street Triple and Daytona (never looked at anything else)

I am glad I didn't sell my Hyosung GT650N at a huge loss earlier. I'll probably stick to it for some more time.

Since I have the D390, I thought I should add a nice supersport to garage and be done with it for life

The Daytona 675 pricing broke my heart (my phone / laptop wallpapers were all changed to the Daytona 675)

HOWEVER, we can observe that Triumph has two versions of the Daytona (ABS and R versions). The R is top spec racing version with ohlins all around. May be we can expect a non-R spec in the future at a lower pricing. (In US, the price difference is about 1.2L) - Given that it is already priced stratospherically high at 11.4, I don't know if it makes sense if Triumph launches it even a couple of lakhs less.

What were they thinking when they priced Daytona, esp when Street Triple is at 7.5?

Well, I was only interested in one bike. Will my dream come true? Not sure

Though the pricing is great!

Answering my own question. Seems it tops out at around 115 mph (184 kmph). Very decent.

Triumph really messed up on the Street Triple pricing man!

Hi Doc,

You were seriously considering ST? One of my friend who was crazy after it and had even paid up the booking amount is now crying!

Any idea what will be the damage if booking is cancelled? (booking amount - 1 Lakh)

Yes I seriously had it on my medium term radar bro. This was when I did not know of the 690 coming. So the 650 was the only other - and I almost bought a hardly used one some months back.

Bonnie price bang on. The superlow was 5.71 lacs a couple of months back. Now its 5.91. So triumph could have priced it higher, but may be they are looking for the volume game here.

If I am not wrong only the Bonnie, Street and Speed are manufactured in Thailand. Daytona is manufactured in UK. So it was always going to be expensive, CBU or CKD.

The only disappointment is the street triple. They could have priced it lower, but there is no competition in that category (until the z800 arrives). Still not too high a price for 105 hp/183 kg (wet weight). It retails for 7400 pounds in UK. Looking forward to January end for opening of the dealership.

Hoping Bajaj launches the z800 CKD till then and Triumph has to do with the Street, what it did with the Bonnie to beat Superlow's pricing.

How would the daytona fare as an everyday bike? Will it qualify as a commuter?

Its a supersports bike and will not at all suit as an everyday commuter bike. For an everyday use, it has to be either a Bonny or Street Triple

Looking forward to the Bonneville..

Shubz, there is no cancellation charges for people who booked prior to the price announcement.

Thanks

It's a doable speeds on good roads which are fairly straight. But at these speeds on a standard bike you will be beginning to push the envelope.

Yes, the price does not seem to be justified and neither have they followed any trend when compared to the 2012 Auto Expo. Yes the rupee did get buggered when compared to $ but atleast if the hike had a common trend it would have been justifiable. Was hoping that they put up some sorta reasoning for the hikes. Is it a sign to come that triumph might actually take its customers for granted?

Regarding the accessories, suggest you to trace a good CNC Lathe with your own design and carry some blocks of aluminum. Am sure you will be able to get your creative best and more importantly make it to your taste. To start off with you can refer some websites and feel their functional usage.

Doc,
I would not trust the Bonnie to handle speeds in excess of 150 kays. The chassis design accompanied with rear suspension does not support hi speeds.
Yep they should rework on the pricing of ST & Daytona which does not seem to be justified. What was surprising to read was that a couple of bikes have actually slashed prices.

Don't expect it to be cheap. For example a Centre Stand for Bonnie will set you back by about GBP 200/- even if you buy it in Uk or in sites like Jack Lilly etc. But the parts are well engineered and durable, unless God forbid you have an accident or something.

Some might think that if one can save 9 or 10 L they can easily save 12L and get one, biggest problem here is the mental barrier of spending more and 10L for a 600CC motorcycle !

Daytona WAS my dream bike, but dream has turned into a nightmare after I saw the pricing

Wait for the next dream bike begins

I totally support your theory, Daytona should have been priced at around 8-9 lacs max considering its a CKD. This is cos, Take example of Ninja 650R. Its approx 8000$ in US, and here priced between 5-6 Lacs which is a good pricing. Similarly Daytona should have slashed out the price to above mentioned figure in my opinion. 10+ lacs for 600cc is any-day commentable. KTM690 must pull out a trick trumping all these for Indian market.

Look at the price of Daytona. It will be about 13 Lakhs OTR. Triumph gave an impression that it will be prices in the 6-8 lakhs bracket. If one is spending that much amount then why not spend a bit more and buy a zx10r.
