Bajaj Auto ties up with Triumph to make mid-capacity motorcycles

Bajaj Auto, the country’s fourth biggest two-wheeler maker, today announced a partnership with UK’s Triumph Motorcycles to jointly make mid-capacity motorcycles for Indian and global markets.

This non-equity partnership will look to address growing demand for leisure riding, something on the lines of products from Harley Davidson. However, with Bajaj’s low-cost expertise the partnership will address the budget segment buyers looking for bikes having engine capacity of 400cc-800cc.

While Bajaj Auto stands to gain from Triumph’s technology and brand the UK-based company will benefit from low-capacity higher volumes bikes. Bajaj will make new range of locally developed Triumph bikes at its Chakan facility in Pune.
