As per a previous interaction with HT Auto, Triumph Motorcycles said it plans to exclusively retail only the Triumph bikes through its pre-owned business, and all the units will be sold via the company's official dealerships. All its used bikes available for purchase will be properly checked, serviced and refurbished by the company itself.
"We would be buying, refurbishing and selling approved used Triumph motorcycles through our dealerships. This would give a good entry price point to our customers, where we will put warranty on those motorcycles and perform required technical checks so that customers can have the required peace of mind when buying a used Triumph bike," Shoeb Farooq, Business Head for Triumph Motorcycles India, told HT Auto.
