Triumph Daytona 675 ABS

The Daytona 675 ABS from Triumph is the only sports bike in the Triumph range. That said, this lethal machine has replaced the original 650 in 2008. The new model carries more thrust and more power. The quirky looking Daytona is well constructed. It carries a split headlamp and sculpted body.

A three-cylinder engine and no awards for guessing that it displaces 675cc also power the Dayton 675. The in-line triple is good for 126bhp @12,500rpm and 74Nm @11,900rpm making it one of the quickest bikes in its segment.

The Thunderbird LT is a much a premium version of the Thunderbird Storm and comes loaded with a long list of creature comforts for a better touring experience. It is the third cruiser in Triumph’s Indian line-up and slots in between the Thunderbird Storm and the massive Rocket III. The bike has plenty of chrome and has a blacked out look.

Triumph Rocket III Roadster

Rocket III from Triumph is the largest production motorcycle from the iconic British bike maker. Launched for the global markets in late 2004, it was brought to the Indian market in its latest avatar late last year as a part of Triumph’s presence in India. The Rocket III is named after the BSA Rocket 3, which in turn was also called the Triumph Trident. First off, this is not a joke, it is a massive bike built for serious bikers. The rider of this bike sits behind most of the engine into the seat that sinks low into the bike’s well thought design. Chrome addition has not been a priority on this bike but the 3X1 dual exhaust pipes are definitely note worthy.
