Currently, only Speed Triple, Tiger 1200 and TFC are produced in the UK
It is a story that the above model is to be put together in the UK at present. It feels like a three-cylinder TFC model.
So, since Speed Triple and Tiger 1200 is to be put together in Thailand in the middle of 2020, it seems like the whole lineup is usually Thai production. However, there is no name for Daytona 765 Moto 2, but where was Kore produced?
Perhaps it applies to some exclusive models. Other than the above model, Rocket 3, is built in Thailand. Surprising.
There are also Indian models
“This partnership brings out a different segment within the midrange by manufacturing a new midrange (200-750cc) engine and platform and offering multiple options.
The aim is to start at less than 2 lacs at the price of INR, which provides a gateway to new entry into Triumph’s sales markets around the world and help Triumph to become a significant region of the global motorcycle market. And attract new customers to your brand. “
Triumph and Bajaj (an Indian motorcycle company that also produces the KTM small-displacement series) and Indian production models.
That’s why Triumph
- United Kingdom: TFC and exclusive models.
- Thailand: All current models.
- India: Newly developed 200-750cc model.
It would be great to produce bikes in the above three countries. (It looks like Triumph have a CKD factory in Brazil.) It’s said that Triumph would continue to do all your research and design in the UK.
Triumph is focusing on design and development.
Triumph has a lot of derivative models and high-tech meters, from partners like Gopro.
Moving to a production area, lowering costs, and spending money on such places.

BMW produces some engines in China, DUCATI produces scramblers and other parts in Thailand, KTM produces small displacements motorcycles in India, and the middle class produces them in China.
Surprisingly, most overseas manufacturers are starting to produce overseas. However, I feel like some models.
- Honda: Thai production is high for middle and lower displacement motorcycles.
- Kawasaki: Most liters or less is produced in Thailand (excluding Z900RS, W800, ZX-6R).
- Yamaha: About Japan. YZF-R25 series and XMAX produced in Indonesia, 155cc or less overseas.
- Often Suzukis Japenese GSR250 series is made in China, Bergman 200 is in Thailand, scooters are mostly made in Taiwan and China, and Gixars are in India.
- Models for Honda and Kawasaki put together overseas.
- For Yamaha and Suzuki, 250cc or less put together in other countries, but the higher classes are Japan made.
Japanese manufacturers have increased the number of models produced overseas, and the proportion may increase in the future.
Recently Japanese overseas production vehicles seem to have good quality and inspection.
