Usually banks would provide 85-90% finance. Interest rates are not less than 12% (Not confirmed yet). Also, time period for these loans would not be more than 5 years.

The Daytona would be brought in at a later stage via the CKD route and till then we have access to the Daytona R via the CBU route.

According to the website, there is no dealership currently in Mumbai.

Any idea on when the first one may come up? I've been seeing nothing but Bonnevilles and Street Triples in my dreams

Shaman Motors has the dealership for Triumph in Bombay and they open shop in January. I was informed that they are open for bookings.

Do any of Triumph bikes carry the Brit thump?
I read up the tech specs of a few, and saw that all of them produce peak torque pretty high up in the rev range. Which gives me an idea that these are not exactly thumpers ...

They are no longer the thumpers they used to be - specially with the current Muflers which has all sort of stuff (read it as catalyc converters etc). But if you change them to some after market ones, you still get a pretty facinating gunshot sounding (more like loud diwali crackers) noise. I am talking of the Classic range rather than the big and fast boys of the stable.

Best Regards & Ride Safe

Speedy, I really hope what you say is true mate. I am one of those gazzilion heart broken daytona hopefuls with small little piggy banks. Any more light on this statement of yours? Any time line on when the standard daytona will hit the showrooms?

The Street Triple pricing is higher than i expected, but the bike is still a fantastic package, hopefully it's one of the initial bikes that will be manufactured locally soon and the time to save up for it will be less. Have a look at the these two reviews/comparisons of 'naked middle-weight' bikes, one rates the Street Triple highest while the latter rates the Yamaha FZ(MT?)-09 higher - hopefully all these (FZ09 and z800) make it to India soon !

Street Triple vs. Z800 vs. MT/FZ-09 vs. Agusta Brutale :

Thanks Initially I was told the same Jan 1st week delivery as announced during the launch. But today morning I was informed that, they are not sure which models would be ready for delivery by Jan 1st week, so it might go till Jan end or even Feb.

During the launch, I noticed grab-rails on the Daytona (Attachment), this is not seen on Daytona in other countries. Is this due to any norms to be followed here?? [I would remove it for sure ]
