Triumph Motorcycles India flagged off the second edition of the Tiger Trails experience ride. As part of the ride, Triumph owners will be riding from Shimla to Manali via Spiti, covering a distance of about 700km. Over 20 Triumph Tiger owners are part of the ride, which will end on July 27 in Manali. Earlier this year, the British brand had also organised a ride from Kashmir to Kanyakumari.
Speaking about the five-day programme, Vimal Sumbly, Managing Director, Triumph Motorcycles India said, “With over 900 Tiger customers in the country, Triumph Motorcycles does not just deliver great motorcycles. We also create an ecosystem in which the rider is equipped with the skillset to ride deftly and safely. With the recent introduction of the all-new Tiger 800 and the Tiger 1200, the game just got better. We have and will be working on more of such curated programmes to further our commitment to building a safe riding culture in India, and to promote the spirit of adventure in the country.”
Apart from the ride, Triumph will also be organising training sessions to help riders improve their riding skills and be prepared for the journey better. The route selected will consist of varying terrains, which will enable the owners to explore the potential of their Tigers. The convoy will be followed by a 4x4 back-up vehicle loaded with mechanics and supplies such as medical kit, tool kit, puncture kit, spare parts, pumps, etc, and a VHF radio for communication, at all times.
