Triumph To Launch 250 cc Motorcycle

Triumph250ccmotorcycleThe 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.

    A two-fifty Triumph from India is fine by me.The Bonneville is now a Thai-Rumph made in Thailand remember.

    We may not be making anything in the USA anymore, but at least we’re getting a jump on selling the crap made elsewhere by starting Black Friday on Thanksgiving.

    If Harley, Triumph, etc would have started small bikes in 2000 or sooner, the mc industry would be today in a much better shape

    It won’t be long and we’ll all be riding “Indian” motorcycles.

    After the Trans Pacific Free Trade Agreement is finished grinding us into the dirt the average citizen will be lucky to even run a motorized vehicle let alone own one.

    Crybabies. Harley and Victory are both doing very well. Indian is up and running, Motus and EBR aren’t far behind. American motorcycling has never been this good. Best of luck to Triumph, they picked a highly competitive, low margin market to expand into.

    Fritz,nothing wrong with riding cruiser bicycle with Honda leaf blower motor power.

  9. 9 Sigfreed Nov 12th, 2013 at 2:42 pm

    Where will this end? Going so far east that the next BIG thing will be a 2.5cc boulevard cruiser..?

    Do not reduce the capacity – just reduce the size of the population…

    dannyb278,Tell that to Columbus!

  20. 20 Brett Nov 13th, 2013 at 6:48 am

    If it were up to Jesse James…..this is the kind of bike Polaris would have been making as the new Indian Motorcycle. Maybe not that small of CCs, but this type of bike instead of the bagger & cruisers they put out with the new Chiefs, which he, the Horse Back Street Choppers & Cycle Source are shunning

  21. 21 Ronnie Nov 13th, 2013 at 7:00 am

    Brett, you are confused. Jesse James will never do this bike. This bike is “non Indian” style. These 2 mags were shunned by Indian, I guess because of their very poor readership and content.

  22. 22 Sportster Mike Nov 13th, 2013 at 8:50 am

    Have seen this model without the fairing Street Triple style over here in England..
    Would be OK for me as a winter bike – but only if its cheap
    250cc market is for learners etc here
    New Tiger Cub anyone?

    What’s with the insect-like styling?

  24. 24 Kroeter Nov 13th, 2013 at 12:17 pm

    I think the insect-like styling has more appeal to their target crowd than what a 250 Honda Rebel looks like. Kawasaki has made a killing with their 250 Ninja the past few years.

  25. 25 Terence Tory Nov 13th, 2013 at 12:37 pm

    Kroeter,Kawasaki designer the mini Ninja motor about thirty years ago.Talk about tradition and heritage!

  26. 26 bartsky Nov 13th, 2013 at 5:50 pm

    Really hate that style of motorcycle…except for the very few bikes that still exhibit some heritage styling (Bonneville, Harley etc.), every other bike approximates this ‘insect’ look no matter what category the bike is supposed to inhabit.

  27. 27 bartsky Nov 13th, 2013 at 5:51 pm

    hate insect styling

  28. 28 BCinSoCal Nov 14th, 2013 at 5:42 pm

    Insect styling? Where the hell do you guys live, that has insects that look like a Jap sports bike? Just curious…
