The Bajaj-Triumph Deal Is Almost Ready To Be Signed


We have finally received a Save the Date for the event

  • The two companies’ top bosses, Rajiv Bajaj and Nick Bloor, themselves will ink the deal.
  • This deal has been in the works since August 2017.
  • Apparently, a prototype motorcycle has already been developed.

Bajaj is going all guns blazing in 2020. Just days after launching the Chetak electric scooter, the Pune-based manufacturer has announced that its alliance with British bike maker Triumph is set to become official on January 24. The two companies had been working on this alliance to develop a new line of motorcycles since August 2017 with deal being finalising it at the end of 2019.

It might have taken the two parties a month extra but we are not complaining. Why should we when we are finally getting closer to the reality of seeing mid-capacity Triumphs being ridden on our streets. It was earlier reported that a prototype motorcycle was being developed at Hinckley (Triumph’s HQ) and it seemingly has received a nod of approval from Rajiv Bajaj himself.

We also know that there will be a single engine platform, which will operate in the 250cc to 750cc segment, spawning multiple displacements and motorcycles (maybe a Bonneville 400 and a Bonneville 700). We have explored the possibility of the bikes’ cubic capacities in detail in this story.

With this alliance, Triumph will be exposed to newer markets like Africa and Latin America, where Bajaj already has a sizable presence. In India, these bikes will be sold via Triumph dealerships. Bajaj might have to pay Triumph some form of royalty to use the engine platform for its own products. Stay tuned to ZigWheels for further development on the Bajaj-Triumph alliance.
