For the first time, the forthcoming Bajaj Triumph has been sighted undergoing testing in India. This motorcycle appears to be a prototype for production and has various add-ons. The future motorcycles from the Bajaj-Triumph cooperation have already been observed in other countries, but this is the first time an Indian test mule has been spotted. This was expected because Bajaj will manufacture the bikes in India and market them here.
The bike’s principles have remained the same, indicating that most of the mechanicals are in place and that the model is currently being fine-tuned. Minor modifications to the exhaust system since the bike was last seen are among the signs of recent fine-tuning.
The parallel-twin engines on the Bonnevilles will be replaced with a large-capacity single in the upcoming entry-level bikes. We may be looking at something above the 350cc threshold based on the size of the block and the radiator.
The tank cushions in the knee recesses of this test mule are one of the most understated accessories; they resemble those found on a Triumph. The Street Twin, mainly the rest of the Bonneville lineup, is strikingly similar to this motorcycle. The design language, the round headlight, the teardrop-shaped fuel tank, and the slightly sloped seat are similar. The offset fuel-filler cap and more intricate details were carried over from the Twin.
Although the double-barrel design is maintained, the shields have slightly different designs, and the exhaust exit also seems to be altered. The right-side panel now includes three tiny circular cut-outs that weren’t in the earlier shots, which is a subtle change to the side panels’ appearance.
The front windscreen and handguards are the most noticeable options. Since this test mule has hand guards and cannot accommodate bar-end mirrors, these are the mirrors that the motorcycle is most likely to have as standard equipment. The initial sighting revealed bar-end mirrors, probably available as extras.
