The upcoming Bajaj-Triumph bike has been spied testing with wire-spoke rims and luggage options for the first time. The bike appears quite finished with no loose wires or cables to be seen, hinting that it might make its public debut soon.

Upcoming Bajaj-Triumph bike to get wire-spoke rims
Since the upcoming Bajaj-Triumph bike will be sold under the Triumph moniker, it will most likely have a vast array of optional extras on offer, as is typical of products from the Hinckley-based marque. The wire-spoke rims seen here could well make it to the aforementioned catalogue, if not being offered on a separate standalone variant. What remains to be seen is whether these are tubeless wire-spoke rims. With the exception of the Zontes 350T ADV, no other bike in this displacement category has tubeless spoked rims. While the exact capacity it displaces is uncertain, from the size of the engine block, it seems to be in the ballpark of 350-400cc.
The other noteworthy additions here come in the form of diverse luggage options. What can be seen here is a tank bag, a top box and a soft pannier only on the left-hand side, most likely on account of the exhaust muffler on the right. Triumph offers a vast line of luggage choices for all of its bikes, so the ones seen here will most likely be offered as optional extras.
