New Triumph-Bajaj motorcycles to break cover on 27 June
The first-ever motorcycles co-developed by Triumph-Bajaj, the Scrambler and street naked, will make their global debut in London, the United Kingdom, on 27 June, 2023. Rajiv Bajaj, Managing Director, Bajaj Auto, confirmed the news during an interview.
Recently, Bajaj Auto took over Triumph's India sales and marketing operations. With this, Bajaj Auto will oversee 15 Triumph showrooms in India. It will also introduce 120 new Triumph dealerships across the country in the next two years. Further, not only Bajaj Auto and Triumph will co-develop a new range of motorcycles for Triumph, but it will manufacture these new motorcycles at its Chakan facility in Pune, Maharashtra. The new bikes aim to create an entry point to Triumph's global motorcycle portfolio.
Triumph-Bajaj new scrambler and street naked motorcycles: Details
The upcoming Triumph-Bajaj scrambler and street naked bikes have been spotted testing in India on multiple occasions. Both motorcycles are likely to feature a semi-digital instrument console, all-LED lights, dual-channel ABS, traction control, ride-by-wire, slipper and assist clutch, upside-down front forks, and a rear monoshock (both suspension setups may offer some form of adjustability).
In terms of design, the Triumph-Bajaj scrambler and roadster will draw inspiration from the on-sale Triumph models. For reference, the sculpted fuel tank of the Triumph-Bajaj scrambler with an offset fuel tank cap resembles the Bonneville's unit. Even the LED headlight is reminiscent of the Trident 660.
The Triumph-Bajaj scrambler and street naked could get a 300-400cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder motor mated to a six-speed gearbox. The power output of this engine is expected to be around 35-45PS and 30-40Nm of peak torque.
Triumph-Bajaj new scrambler and street naked motorcycles: Prices
The expected price range of the Triumph-Bajaj street naked is likely to be between Rs 2 lakh and Rs 2.40 lakh. Whereas, the prices of the Triumph-Bajaj scrambler may range between Rs 2.40 lakh and Rs 2.60 lakh.
