Triumph 250cc motorcycle revealed in spy shots?
The news about Triumph Motorcycles, the British manufacturers, working on a smaller engined motorcycle was already reported earlier this year. But, it is for the first time that this rumored motorcycle was snapped up by photographers from RideApart.
With demand for entry level bikes on the rise, especially in countries like India, more and more manufacturers are joining in the list to launch a bike in the 250 cc segment. Earlier today, BMW-TVS 250 cc bike news was shared, while some time back it was the 250 cc Harley Davidson motorcycle which is expected to be premiered at the 2013 EICMA next month.
If all goes well, then the British motorcycle manufacturers, who are noted for their bikes such as the Bonneville, Street triple and Rocket III might be producing the new 250cc bike in India at their upcoming plant situated on the outskirts of Bangalore. This plant is set to be operational by 2015.
From the spy images (credit : RideApart), it seems that the new Triumph entry level 250cc bike will be built on a steel tube frame. The engine might deliver power in the range of 25-30 bhp. The model looks similar in design to the Street Triple with bulging headlamps and a massive exhaust canister. The fuel tank is rounded in shape while seating is a single seat.
Triumph Motors will sales commence sales in India by introducing bikes in the country via the CKD route, which will be initially assembled at the company plant in Manesar. We have already showed the images of CKD boxes of Triumph Motorcycles spotted at the T3 Terminal Cargo unit, Delhi Airport. It’s only a matter of few days, before Triumph is officially launched in India.
