Triumph in India
In the Indian market, where the premium motorcycle segment has seen a 10% degrowth between Nov 2020 and Oct 2021, the iconic British brand has observed a 30% growth in the same period. More than 50% growth in sales is from CKD (Completely Knocked Down) models. And reports suggest that the brand is likely to bring the Tiger Sport 660 in India via the CKD route to keep prices competitive. The brand is using the same route to bring the Triumph Trident as well.
