Upcoming Bikes of 2013 above Rs 15 lakh
2013 Triumph Storm
Expected: Mid-2013, Price: Rs 17 lakh, Channel: CBU
During the 2012 Auto Expo in New Delhi the iconic British motorcycle company Triumph Motorcycles showcased its seven models which it will be bringing soon to India. While the plans were to launch some of those models in 2012, a shift in the top management at Triumph India has delayed its launch schedule to 2013. Out of the seven models, the mighty cruiser Triumph Storm is one model which will ply in the Luxury cruiser segment challenging the likes of Harley-Davidson motorcycles and the soon-to-be launched Victory Motorcycles from USA. The expected price for the 1,699cc Storm cruiser from Triumph is expected to be about 17 lakh (ex-showroom) and it should be in the dealerships by late-2013. The pricing is certainly going to be on the higher side as the Storm will be brought in via the CBU channel and not assembled or produced locally in India.
Triumph Rocket III
Expected: Late-2013, Price: Rs 22 lakh, Channel: CBU
The mighty Triumph Rocket III power cruiser is one machine which has been eagerly awaited by the wealthy superbiker popluation in the country as there is no bigger style statement than rolling in at a club on a Saturday night on one of the most powerful motorcycles in the world. The Rocket III does it all and has the go to match the show and ofcourse at an expected price tag of Rs. 22 lakh (ex-showroom), there arent going to be too many of them on our roads. But those few who can afford it, the Rocket III is defintiely one head turning machine with enormous street presence and the loud note emitted by its large 2,294cc mill. But the Rocket III is not alone and it faces competion from the Ducati Diavel as well as the sizably big Suzuki Intruder. That said, the Triumph's charm and stance is far outrageous than its rivals and it will certainly get an upperhand with regards to its appeal and charisma.
