As everyone is familiar with the start of a brand partnership era, Bajaj Auto and Triumph are working on a motorcycle that is expected to fall right into the category of the Harley-Davidson Street 750 and the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650. As per the latest details available, the Bajaj-Triumph motorcycle is expected to launch in early 2020.
Benefits from the new product will vary for both the manufacturers as Triumph will get affordable manufacturing while Bajaj may get their hands on the higher capacity engine for their future projects.
Currently, the most affordable Triumph motorcycle in India is the Street Twin at INR 7.45 lakh. Bajaj Auto, on the other hand, restricts its motorcycle range to wide range of audience till INR 1.74 lakh. They also manufacture KTM products ranging till INR 2.48 lakh but retail them under a totally separate performance moniker.
As Bajaj Auto partnered KTM and helped them become the number one sport bike seller of its segment, Triumph expects the same magic in a much bigger engine segment than KTM. They are better known for their powerful street performance motorcycles and most probably, would use Bajaj’s experience in manufacturing a product at a much lower cost than Triumph’s present lineup.
Triumph’s modern classic range will see a fresh face in the coming months and that would be successfully exported to all existing markets of the British manufacturer. If presently surfacing reports are to be believed, the Bajaj-Triumph motorcycle would be priced around INR 4-5 lakh (ex-showroom).
Bajaj-Triumph will first bring a 2-cylinder product around 600-650cc segment and then they will enter the single cylinder segment at a later stage. Bajaj and Triumph have not hinted about an official unveil date but we expect to see a new camouflaged machine running on the Indian roads soon for sure.
