Royal Enfield, the highest-selling motorcycle brand above 350cc capacity in India is extremely popular around India. The classic design of the Royal Enfield attracts many and the comparatively lower price of the bikes ensure that most enthusiasts can spend for the Royal Enfield and own one. International manufacturers like Kawasaki and Triumph also offer motorcycles that have a classic design and have modern engineering but they belong from the higher segment, which also means a higher price tag. Even though there are many who would want to buy the classic and iconic bikes like the Triumph Bonneville but the extremely high price tag keeps them away.
Shaman Triumph, an authorised dealership in Mumbai has announced a new scheme where the Royal Enfield rides can drive in their bikes and go home on a Triumph Street Twin. The authorised dealer is offering a discount of Rs 1.5 lakhs on the price of a brand-new Bonneville Street Twin. In fact, the customers who are opting for loans would not have to pay any downpayment and the Royal Enfield bike will be used as a downpayment in itself.
The Triumph Bonneville Street Twin is priced at Rs 7.45 lakhs, ex-showroom, which is much expensive than the most expensive Royal Enfield model. As per the dealership, there are no hidden charges or other terms and conditions applicable to the offer.
This is an interesting offer since there are many Royal Enfield owners who would want to upgrade to more powerful motorcycles in the future and they do see the classic Triumph motorcycles as one of the prospects. Royal Enfield launched the all-new 650cc, twin-cylinder engine powered Interceptor and Continental GT 650 last year in the Indian market and both the bikes are potential upgrades for the single-cylinder powered Royal Enfield owners.
The Triumph Bonneville Street Triple is powered by a 900cc, liquid-cooled, three-cylinder engine that is angeled at 270 degrees. It generates a maximum of 65 PS at 7,500 rpm and peak torque of 80 Nm at 3,800 rpm, making it more powerful than any Royal Enfield motorcycle in the country. The bike gets the ride-by-wire system as standard, which allows precise throttle inputs. The Triumph Bonneville is much more advanced and is feature-laden too. It gets traction control system, heated grips and a multi-function LCD console that offers a detailed view of the bike’s status. The instrument console offers readouts like gear position indicator, fuel gauge, distance to empty, service indicator and fuel consumption.
It is not known if the offer is valid for a limited time or it will be applicable for a long time. For more details, you can contact Shaman Triumph, Mumbai directly.
