The used bikes will be properly checked, serviced and refurbished by Triumph. "In October we are going to launch our used bike program which is called 'Triumph Approved'. 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.
