Pre-bookings for the modern classic motorcycle have been now been opened in India for Rs 50,000 with a formal launch to follow in the coming days. Expect a price tag of about Rs 10 lakh (ex-showroom).

Improved hardware includes 43mm USD Marzocchi forks with 120mm travel up front and twin RSUs with adjustable preload and 120mm wheel travel at the rear. Braking comes from 320mm dual discs with Brembo M50 four-piston callipers up front and a 220mm disc with Nissin two-piston calliper at the rear. It gets dual-channel ABS as standard.
The motorcycle will also be able to make use of Beeline navigation system which Triumph recently unveiled designed specifically for its modern classic range. However, the Triumph Beeline is currently not available in India.
