2022 sees Triumph enter sub-750 cc market with Bajaj


A non-equity partnership has been signed between Triumph Motorcycles and Bajaj Auto to produce middleweight motorcycles, entering the market in 2022. Manufacturing will take place in Bajaj’s plant in Chakan, India and will cover motorcycles from 200 cc up to 750 cc with pricing starting from 200,000 Indian rupees (RM11,300).

While no details have been made public on quantity, the Bajaj plant in Chakan, which paultan.org visited in 2017, has a daily production capacity of 100,000 units a day. Distribution and sales in India will leverage on Bajaj’s dealer network throughout the sub-continent.

However, motorcycles produced under the manufacturing partnership will also be sold worldwide via Triumph’s international dealer network. Under the agreement, the sub-750 cc two-wheelers will be developed jointly by Triumph and Bajaj with Triumph overseeing the design, ride and handling, reports website ndtv.com.

Addressing the issue facing the global motorcycle market about attracting a younger rider demographic, Triumph chief executive officer said, “This is an important partnership for Triumph, and I am delighted that it has now formally commenced. As well as taking our brand into crucial new territories, the products that will come out of the partnership will also help attract a younger, but still discerning, customer audience and is another step in our ambitions to expand globally, particularly in the fast-growing markets of South East Asia, but also driving growth in more mature territories like Europe.”

“The Triumph brand is an iconic one the world over. So, we are confident that there will be a huge appetite in India and other emerging markets for these new products. We look forward to working alongside such a famous motorcycle company and to leveraging each other’s strengths and expertise to make the relationship a success for everyone,” said Bajaj managing director Rajiv Bajaj.

FIRST RIDE: 2020 Triumph Street Triple 765RS, RM68k

The all-new 2020 Triumph Street Triple 765RS, which was launched earlier this month at the 2019 Shell MotoGP at the Sepang International Circuit, is priced at RM67,900. That’s literally the same sticker price as before, but the 2020 model comes with a raft of updates, both mechanically and aesthetically.

To start, the first thing to catch the eye is the new LED headlights, as well as vents featured on each side of the seat cowl, a design inspired by Moto2 race machines. Power comes from the same 765 cc, inline-triple engine but is tweaked to give 9% more torque in the mid-range.

The engine makes 121 hp at 11,750 rpm and 79 Nm of torque at 9,350 rpm, and it’s now Euro 5 compliant. Similarly enhanced is the six-speed gearbox, which now includes shorter first and second gears to improve acceleration and an up-and-down quickshifter is standard. Engine response is improved thanks to lighter internals, and the bike’s dry weight is 166 kg.

2020 Triumph Bobber TFC – 750 made worldwide


Main

First launched in 2017, the Triumph Bobber started a trend for the Hinckley for works-built modified retros, leading to the Triumph Factory Custom (TFC) range, the latest of which is the limited edition 2020 Triumph Bobber TFC. The other models in the TFC catalogue are the Rocket 3 TFC, which is now sold out, and the Thruxton TFC.

For the Bobber TFC, engine power from the 1,200 cc High Torque parallel-twin engine has seen a bump, up 10 hp and 4 Nm from previous, giving 87 hp and 110 Nm of torque with a 39% reduction in engine inertia. To be built in a limited production run of only 750 units worldwide, the equipment specification for the Bobber TFC is given a substantial upgrade over the standard model.

These include Ohlins fully-adjustable upside-down front forks and adjustable Ohlins monoshock along with titanium Arrow exhaust cans with carbon-fibre end caps. Brakes have been similarly upgraded, the Bobber TFC coming with Brembo M50 Monobloc brake callipers in front, actuated by a Brembo MCS radial master cylinder.

Unique to the Bobber TFC are clip-on handlebars, lowering the bike’s silhouette further and a short ‘bobber’ front mudguard. Carbon-fibre is used for the side panels and the mudguard stays. The upper triple tree is machined from billet aluminium and comes with TFC badging and the bike’s edition number while the single seat is made from genuine leather.

Coming in a murdered out colour scheme, the Bobber TFC features black anodised multi-spoked wheels, black monoshock spring and forks, black engine covers and a black frame and swingarm. Only one colour scheme is available for the Bobber TFC – Carbon Black and Matte Carbon Black, with silver foil union jack flag on the knee pads and every Bobber TFC owner will receive a numbered letter hand-signed by Triumph CEO Nick Bloor, a personalised custom build book, Bobber TFC bike cover, TFC document wallet and leather TFC branded rucksack.
