The first motorcycle to come from the much talked about Bajaj-Triumph partnership has been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Rajiv Bajaj, MD - Bajaj Auto, recently confirmed the development and revealed that the timeline to bring the first motorcycle from the partnership has been pushed to 2023 from the originally planned launch in 2022. The non-equity partnership between Bajaj and Triumph will see the motorcycles being jointly developed by the firms with the Indian two-wheeler giant in charge of production, while the design, handling, and fine-tuning will be done by Triumph. Bajaj also revealed that the bikes will be 99 per cent localised, which promises extremely aggressive pricing. The Indian bike maker will also be responsible for the marketing and sales of the bikes not just in India but other export markets as well.
