The British iconic brand, Triumph Motorcycles has achieved
high sales of 1300 motorcycles in the first year of its inception in India. The
luxury brand had also globally recorded their highest sales figures in 30 years
reaching a volume of 54,432 units.
According to a press release, the global figures from the
Triumph Group show a 4.5pc year-on-year increase in unit sales, with a managed
accounting loss of £8m due to unrealised exchange rate loss, planned overseas
expansion costs and ongoing investment in new models. The group turnover totalled
£364 million (Rs 3414 crore approx.), while total unit sales rose to more than
54,000 – compared to just over 52,000 in the preceding year.
