Triumph Speed 400 on-road price and controversy
While the Triumph's Speed 400 has received an overwhelming response, there was also a controversy break out after select Triumph dealerships quoted exorbitantly high on-road price, Rs 3.38 lakh to be specific, for the Speed 400. A tweeter user recently posted an on-road price break-up for the motorcycle, which included an intro kit worth Rs 8,500 and a whopping Rs 17,000 for delivery charges.
However, Bajaj Auto and Triumph India officially offered a clarification on the matter via their social media handle. The brands said, "At Bajaj Auto Ltd. we are committed to our customers and follow the highest standards of transparency, including pricing. We would urge all customers and media to ignore the rumours doing rounds across various public and social media platforms related to the on-road pricing of the new Speed 400. The company has not released any on-road price guidelines and the same would be in line with its other products and industry norms."
