The competition for the small motorcycle market, from 250 to 750 cc, intensifies. Last week at the 2013 Milan EICMA (International Motorcycle Exhibition) Triumph gave to the media a sketch of their upcoming single 250 cc motorcycle which will be manufactured in Indian at the Narasapura plant in Karnataka. For sure it will be sold in emerging markets in Asia and maybe Africa, but Triumph didn’t disclose if the small Triumph will be exported to Europe & the US.
If you wonder about Harley-Davidson giving a baby brother to the Street 500 & 700 cc models, the company has already officially stated that they will not do anything in the 250/300 cc segment. The Triumph 250 cc will be a 2015 year model. This coming November 28, Triumph is going to introduce in India several models of its current lineup.
