Any more Triumph Daytona bike in the pipeline?

It's obvious to any knowledgeable motorcycle enthusiast that triumph is making this bike largely for the indian market and others like it, as good as that is they need to look into other bikes higher in cc's for the more developed markets. Has anyone hear if they plan to make anything higher in cc's for any of the established world bike markets?

Nothing I heard of.

I'd like to see something in the 300-375 range.

That would be great to see on the daytona line up

It might be a good idea to have it with slightly more than 300cc since then it would out power a lot of the other competitors in that segment. I haven't heard of anything planned right now though. You have to figure that they will begin the whole process of bringing their next bike to market soon enough though.

i noticed that yamaha is doing that, might be a good idea if they follow through with that too although they're not as much of a big brand as yamaha is.

No clue, realistically going of the 675 we could be seeing a 250R, better suspension, maybe a quick shifter??

But the fact that they are less big than a company like Yamaha is even more of a reason to do it. It would give them a leg up when competing against these mammoth brands.

no it actually puts them behind the 8 ball. At the end of the day this is a cost driven business, and increasing capacity for a select few markets as a smaller company induces HUGE costs relative to your size. Yamaha and Honda benefit from robust global operations and factories in multiple nations, Triumph doesn't have that benefit. Their labor cost is much less flexible as are their tooling/scaling abilities.

At the end of the day it will eat into the margins and in turn force Triumph to hike the price in order to keep healthy revenue coming in. Pricing yourself out of the market is surely not a method of success..

With all that needs to happen to sell this bike and to make it profitable it will be interesting to see how it all plays out in the end.
