India’s leading adventure
motorcycling brand, Triumph Motorcycles India has introduced the second edition
of its Tiger Trails experience to Spiti. While safety is a crucial part of the
Triumph value system, honing the safety dos and don’ts need not have to be
This year’s Triumph Tiger
Trails will open the vast, serene vistas of the Spiti landscape to 15 Triumph
Tiger customers. With a route less travelled and emergency teams in tow, these
riders will ride through the Valley, building camaraderie over a common
interest while picking up riding tips and tricks. As a brand, Triumph focuses
on both the safety and the experiential aspect of adventure riding equally.
Tiger Trails, the ride-cum-training program is carefully designed to cater to
adventure riders who seek to move up from being riders to adventurers.
Vimal Sumbly, Managing
Director, Triumph Motorcycles India said, “…The Tiger Trails welcomes active
riders who already travel extensively but also seek to make the most of their
Tigers. We will be working on more of these curated programmes to further our
commitment to building a safe riding culture in India, and to promote the
spirit of adventure in the country.”
Taking a step beyond the
Triumph Tiger Training Academy, 15 Triumph Tiger customers from all over India
will participate in the trail starting from Shimla on July 22 to 27th in
Manali. The route chosen across Spiti
will give the riders exposure to different terrains and challenges to make
their ride/training holistic. Real-time training sessions outside the
controlled environment of a track setup will help the riders prepare themselves
for every riding scenario – whether man-made or nature-driven. Back-up
facilities like a 4x4 sweep with mechanics and supplies such as medical kit,
tool kit, puncture kit, spare parts, pumps etc, along with a VHF radio for
communication will be with the riders all the times.
