India bound Triumph 350cc street bike

Triumph is developing new product at the opposite end of the spectrum, in the form of a small-displacement, single-cylinder beginner’s bike. The Street bike is mainly targeted to the 250cc category class.

The bike will be assembled at a new Triumph factory in Manaus, Brazil, from kits produced at one of Triumph’s Thai factories.

The Street Single will be presented in 2012 and will be powered by a liquid-cooled, four-valve, single-cylinder engine displacing 267 to 350cc, depending on where it’s sold.

This will be a potent rival for the Indo-Austrian KTM 350 Duke in developing markets, and a distinctive and desirable alternative in America to the Kawasaki Ninja 250 and Honda CBR250R.

We could expect this bike to make an entry in India as Triumph has officially announced its entry into the India two-wheeler market.
