It’s a pretty dry statement from Triumph that doesn’t say much – but what it means is that Triumph and Bajaj are joined at the hip, producing what they say will be mid-capacity (that’s 200cc to 750cc) bikes with: “multiple options to address different segments in this class”.
Could that mean something electric? Dunno. But it’s an interesting bit of wording for now.
Triumph Motorcycles CEO, Nick Bloor, said: “This is an important partnership for Triumph and I am delighted that it has now formally commenced. As well as taking our brand into crucial new territories, the products that will come out of the partnership will also help attract a younger, but still discerning, customer audience and is another step in our ambitions to expand globally, particularly in the fast-growing markets of South East Asia, but also driving growth in more mature territories like Europe.”
Rajiv Bajaj, Managing Director of Bajaj Auto India, said: “The Triumph brand is an iconic one the world over. So, we are confident that there will be a huge appetite in India and other emerging markets for these new products. We look forward to working alongside such a famous motorcycle company and to leveraging each other’s strengths and expertise to make the relationship a success for everyone.”Get MoreBikes delivered through your letterbox every month. 12 issues for £15.
