New Delhi: British superbike maker Triumph Motorcycles Ltd launched its Daytona 675 priced at Rs.10.15 lakh at the Delhi Auto Expo.
The company, which introduced 10 models in India in November, has received more than 160 bookings and hopes to sell 500 bikes in the six months to June.
The maker of the Rocket III Roadster, the Bonneville and the Tiger Explorer sells its bikes through two dealers and will expand its presence to nine other locations by March, which will cover 85% of the market where superbikes are sold, said Vimal Sumbly, managing director of Triumph Motorcycles (India) Pvt. Ltd.
Four of its models are imported as completely built units, attracting a 112% duty, and six models are brought in as completely knocked-down units and assembled at a facility in Manesar in Haryana, attracting a 28-33% duty. The Daytona, too, will be locally assembled at its Haryana factory.
Triumph bikes sell in the range of Rs.5.9 lakh to Rs.24.5 lakh.
