The adventure touring motorcycle market in India has really taken off over the past few years. And the leader in this segment is Triumph Motorcycles with its Tiger 800 and 1200 range of adventure bikes.
Recently, Triumph hit a landmark figure of 750 Tigers sold in India and to celebrate this achievement, the company has kicked off its Triumph Tiger Trails ride.
The ride has been designed to take participants through some extremely picturesque routes in Himachal Pradesh over a period of four days. Starting at Mashobra, the Tiger Trails ride goes through Narkanda, over some challenging terrain and the Jalori pass into the scenic Kullu valley, finally landing in Manali.
Vimal Sumbly, managing director, Triumph Motorcycles India, who flagged off the ride, said, “The Triumph Tiger has been pivotal in building the adventure riding category and culture in India and is currently the market leader within this fast-growing segment. Our customers are not just Triumph Tiger owners but active riders who already travel extensively but also want to learn the best ways to make the most of their Tigers. The idea behind conducting such training sessions is to pick up from where the Tiger training academy left off, furthering our commitment towards propagating a safe riding culture in India.”
The route involves riding on a mix of tarmac roads as well as dirt trails, and should expose the riders to the full spectrum of the Triumph Tiger’s abilities.
