Triumph is blazing guns to get ready for the 2019 Moto2 World Championship.
Back in June this year, the British motorcycle manufacturer had announced their entry into the world of motorsports by replacing Honda as the engine manufacturer for the Moto2 Motorcycles from the 2019 season.
Making use of the talented 765cc Triumph Street Triple engine, the folks at the racing department are putting all their resources into tuning this three pot motor into a dedicated Moto2 worthy engine. With multiple enhancements and developments underway, the engine has successfully being tested with the second track test at the Ciudad del Motor de Aragón by Julian Simon, 2009 125cc World Champion, Moto2 runner-up and experienced Moto2 test rider.
Which motorcycle do you think has the finest looking face?
Let’s leave the custom builds out of this because, honestly speaking, they wouldn’t have existed if they failed to give a motorcycle a deserving face. But then again, why do any manufacturer for that matter exist if they too fail to give a motorcycle a well-looking face?
Triumph and Bajaj enter into a global partnership
A few days ago, Rajiv Bajaj, MD of Bajaj Auto said, "We are very close to finalising a very promising alliance, it’s not certain, that it will happen, but if it happens, it will open up enormous possibilities for the company."
Today, however, a press release cleared the air and has managed to lift up all eyebrows. The alliance Bajaj was talking about was a global partnership with the British legendary motorcycle manufacturer, Triumph.
Triumph is gunning for local assembly in India.
Triumph has been sweating it out on the arena and bringing us world shattering bikes for more than two decades now. Being one of the oldest manufacturers of two-wheels, Triumph Motorcycles have been the epitome of British engineering and design and they entered the Indian market half a decade ago with having 6.2% market share in the +500cc sector.
While the brand launched its new Street Triple model here in India, Triumph Motorcycles India Managing Director Vimal Sumbly gave us a sneak peak of future plans that includes local assembly of its models here in the country itself and signal their Make In India initiative.
2017 Triumph Street Triple
Over the past couple of years, Triumph has been sweating it out on the arena and treating us with exceptionally new modern classics over and over again. Their Bonneville range is selling as fast as they can make them and just when you thought it’s time for them to take a well-deserved breather, they just pushed themselves to change the rules of the street and prove that they can still rule the popular roadster/streetfighter category.
Triumph, a manufacturer having more than two decades of experience in building top class motorcycles, has bet big on their new upgraded Street Triple model. Giving the riders a distinctive appeal was the characterful and thrilling 675cc triple cylinder engine that had previously made the Street Triple what it was. The small roadster motorcycle became a Triumph icon back then, and the British brand has set to repeat the same with an all-new 2017 Triumph Street Triple.
It will now have a 765cc under the hood and will come in three variants: S, R and RS, each with their unique level of power, performance, technology and distinctive attitudes. With cutting edge technology, earth shattering equipment list, attention to detail and a new sinister powerplant, looks like the Brits have concocted a winner. Get on and choose your pick.
Triumph will power the Moto2 World Championship from 2019.
There is ‘motorcycle’ and then there is ‘motorcycle racing’. Each of them has a different meaning for every manufacturer. And being associated with the latter is a form of prestige to them. The term ‘motorcycle racing’ was coined the day the second motorcycle was ever made and since then, the world of racing has seen a great deal of competition and rivalry amongst manufacturers and builders, all vying for the glory of unadulterated use of power and the pride of being at the top of their game.
The FIM Road Racing World Championship Grand Prix is the premier class of motorcycle road racing held since 1949. The Grand Prix is categorised into three formats - MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3. All manufacturers put all their resources into running the best of their machines on the world stage and claim for the ultimate crown.
Now, Triumph has officially announced their entry into the world of motorsports and are readying to replace Honda as the engine manufacturer for the Moto2 Motorcycles from the 2019 season. And they are doing it with the dedicated race tuned 765cc Triumph triple engine, based on the powerplant from the all-new 2017 Triumph Street Triple.
Triumph is finally rolling the 2017 Street Triple onto the country roads.
For a motorcycle that is said to change the rules of the street, Triumph, a manufacturer having more than two decades of experience in building motorcycles, has bet big on their new upgraded Street Triple model. A model that had already changed the notion of a streetfighter back when it was first launched in 2007.
Giving the riders a distinctive appeal was the characterful and thrilling 675cc triple cylinder engine that had previously made the Daytona 675 sportsbike what it was. The small roadster motorcycle became a Triumph icon back then and the British brand set to repeat the same with an all-new 2017 Triumph Street Triple which will now have a 765cc under the hood.
After launching this earth shattering motorcycle in London five months ago, the British maker has set the ball rolling to introduce this machine into the Indian market as we speak. The bookings for the same have begun across Triumph showrooms in the country and apparently, only the Street Triple ‘S’ variant will be made available for now post the June 12 launch. The ‘R’ and the ‘RS’ variants will, however, come in sometime later in the year.
Two days left for you to get the best deal on a Triumph in India.
Triumph has been the oldest British manufacturer of motorcycles. Having a rich heritage to back them up with their newfound designs, Triumph has created pieces of modern art that look too good to be true. They may have in some way or the other taken inspiration from their past to give birth to what could be some of the best looking iterations of their iconic classics & adventure bikes.
This summer, Triumph has turned up the heat and are offering its customers one week of Triumph Summer Carnival ( April 21st to 30th, 2017) where all the dealerships across the country are participating.
Harley Davidson Street Rod vs Triumph Street Cup vs Ducati Scrambler Café Racer
Ever since its entry into the Indian market, Harley-Davidson has become a cult name and has carved a niche among all the motorcycle lovers who ride for the pure passion of motorcycling. Within the portfolio of Harley Davidson in India, though all the motorcycles have been accepted with open arms irrespective of their high price tags and few obvious shortcomings, the most recognised motorcycle among all happens to be the Street 750. It made its debut in India at the Auto Expo 2014 and became an instant success, for the fact that it was (and still is) the most affordable way to lay your hands on a motorcycle from the iconic brand Harley-Davidson is.
The craze of the mid-weight naked is becoming more and more alive in the Indian subcontinent, and Harley-Davidson is looking at getting a bigger piece of this market segment too. To try out their luck, the iconic American brand has launched the third member of its Street family. It had more aggressive styling and improved handling above all of the Streets. That is the all new Harley-Davidson Street Rod. A little sparse, a little spare, and an exercise in understatement. The most sport-oriented version of the Street series offering an alternative to more conventional cruiser variants. This young generation of a machine is a serious effort to reach customers outside the likes of the classic Harley Davidsons’.
This strategy has been already undertaken by the British and Italian powerhouses, and each has launched their 21st-century machines to rope in the new generation of riders early on. We are talking about the Ducati Scrambler Café Racer and the Triumph Street Cup, which too are based on their retro-themed versions – the Ducati Scrambler and Triumph Street Twin. Here’s a comprehensive comparison to find out if Harley’s new baby accomplishes to stand out from Ducati and Triumph to be the most lucrative motorcycle to own. Here you go:-
Triumph Bonneville Bobber vs Harley Davidson Roadster
The influence both these people have on us is simply a matter of a little sparse, a little spare, and an exercise in understatement. We just love it when we see either of them on our streets, and without a doubt being some of the world’s oldest motorcycle manufacturers, they’ve become the jack of their trades. Both Harley-Davidson and Triumph have ever been at the neck of each other and giving us products of exclusivity at its best.
For 2017, they take the game up a notch and have sounded all bells and whistles. Having a rich heritage to back them up with their newfound designs, both Harley and Triumph have created pieces of modern art that look too good to be true. They may have in some way or the other taken inspiration from each other to give birth to what could be some of the best looking iterations of their iconic brands vis-à-vis the Sportster series and the Bonneville range.
Both these machines have been launched on our soil, both of them cost the same, both of them have similar engine sizes, and both of them are the next big thing for their family lineage. Here is our extensive though on how these two modern machines live up to their iconic silhouettes.
Triumph is attempting to break the land speed record in a 1000 bhp rascal.
Motorcycle racing took shape the minute the second motorcycle was made. Then came the madness of setting speed records. Being the fastest man or building the fastest machine on the planet gave a new sense of high and want. It is intoxication indeed. Setting records for the whole world to know became a fascination and people spent all time and money into this pursuit of speed.
The oldest British manufacturer of motorcycles, Triumph, is no less. Following a successful practice session at the Bonneville Salt Flats, achieving a speed of 441 kph to become the world’s fastest ever Triumph, Triumph Motorcycles has confirmed the attempt to set a new outright motorcycle Land Speed World Record in 2017.
Triumph launched the much awaited Bonneville Bobber in India
Over the past twelve months, Triumph has been sweating it out on the arena and treating us with exceptionally new modern classics over and over again. Their Bonneville range is selling as fast as they can make them and just when you thought it’s time for them to take a well-deserved breather, they just pushed themselves into uncharted territory.
Today, the Brit launched this beast of a looker called the Bonneville Bobber onto the Indian streets for a price tag much less than what we expected. Based on the Triumph T120, this modern classic can be yours for a price tag of ₹9.09 lakh (ex-showroom). (Much lesser than what we expected it to be at around ₹12 lakh)
