Triumphs Indian Success

Triumph has sold 450 bikes in 190 days of operation in India and that is without a low displacement option.

Looks like the Daytona 250 could be built in Karnataka where TRiumph is building a full fledged manufacturing facility.

So you have to figure that with the addition of a lower displacement option that Triumph will see its sales increase pretty dramatically. I bet they make much better margins on the more high powered bikes.

it would, just like almost every bike maker that does it, it's a good move that can help to push the sales of their future bikes that are in higher segments.

It seems like many motorcycles brands are just getting into the Indian market, and they are all going to want to compete for those low displacement sales in the hopes that those people will come back for bigger bikes further down the road. It offers the chance for some of the less popular brands to start a new since many brands entering the region are unknown to India. KTM for example, has really established itself in India.

that's what i noticed and ktm does offer a nice range of smaller bikes, i think they really have the upper hand in those segments for now

No they're not going for upsales to larger bikes, they're going for VOLUME. Thats what all the small displacement bikes are about, baseline volume that funds higher spec projects.

Please don't make India out to be some wasteland of uninformed people. Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki and Kawasaki have all been there for AGES. As has Enfield...

That's exactly it, i'm noticing that they're also making it a global effort to make more of these volume models and in more places.

I think India has had lower displacement bikes for a while, something we're starting to see here slowly, the Honda Grom as an example, something American's are familiar with.

it's the best thing to do at a time when these types of bikes are really in demand.
