Triumph India has been offering premium luxury motorcycles in the country for a while now. They recently inaugurated their new dealerships in Chandigarh and Kolkata to mark 1000 customers in India. The two dealerships marked their 10 outlet within the country.
The British two-wheeler manufacturer offers an array of products. A few of them are offered as Completely Built Units, while the others are Completely Knocked Down units. Triumph India was recently in news for saying something and offering something else.
There was difference in power outputs that Triumph India had posted on their official website. The manufacturer had been providing EU standard power output figures, while in India the motorcycles had to go through the Automotive Research Association of India(ARAI) test procedures.
The British manufacturer claims that test procedure in UK are different from Indian test procedures. This is the main cause of variation in calculating the power output of their motorcycles. Triumph India confirm that the motorcycles on offer in India are similar to that sold globally, however, a few changes have been made to suit India's regulations.
We believe Triumph India would have to alter their bikes to suit our pollution and sound norms. This could be the reason for lower performance figures compared to the UK spec motorcycles. It is unclear why Triumph India took so long to change figures on their website.
The biggest loser has been Triumph's Street Triple motorcycle. The UK spec bike produces 104.50 horsepower, along with 68 Nm of peak torque. Triumph's Street Triple India model generates 77.88 horsepower, along with 68 Nm of peak torque.
