The entry-level Triumph 350cc roadster, a result of the Bajaj-Triumph collaboration, appears to be ready for launch soon, though the official date of debut is still up in the air. The most recent spy images of the Bajaj-Triumph roadster undergoing road tests on the roads of Pune have surfaced, revealing a few details that unmistakably indicate that the bike is getting close to production. A saree guard and a different headlight bracket that is intended to mount a front number plate—another Indian necessity are the two things that are distinctive and obviously the outcome of complying with the norms. The roadster is expected to start at around Rs 2.5 lakh (ex-showroom) and will be manufactured at Bajaj's Chakan plant. Here's everything you need to know about the upcoming Triumph-Bajaj Roadster.

Bajaj-Triumph 350cc Roadster: Key Details

The Bajaj-Triumph motorcycle's exhaust was a single header pipe that ended in a twin exit set-up when it was last spotted. But this time, they've gone back to the original styling, which had just one exhaust exit. A pillion passenger's rear grab handle is visible as well. The bike also comes with a single-piece seat that looks to be quite roomy, just like Triumph's more expensive Bonneville range. Moreover, it is possible that the bar-end mirrors are a part of the extensive accessory selection Triumph provides with its models.

Bajaj-Triumph 350cc Roadster: Styling Updates

There will be 4 different body types, to speak of. Since they have previously been seen undergoing testing, a roadster, and a scrambler are already well known. The other two are a flat tracker and a cafe racer. We can anticipate the roadster model's name to be the Street 250 or the Street 350 given the bikemaker's naming convention. The Scrambler 350 and the Scrambler 250 will come with retro styling, round headlights, a blackened engine bay, and a clean tail. The Scrambler receives a small windscreen, knuckle guards, a dual-barrel exhaust, and block pattern tyres. The larger Triumph motorcycles in their respective genre are where the design language originated. Besides this, Triumph also manufactures the Thruxton cafe racer. The Bajaj Triumph cafe racer is probably going to use the same design language as the Thruxton. Triumph doesn't currently produce flat trackers. If a flat tracker is developed by this Bajaj Triumph platform, it will be Triumph's very first.

Bajaj-Triumph 350cc Roadster: Engine and Hardware 

The engine is probably going to be around 400cc, and the roadster will likely be an entry-level model in the Triumph Bonneville lineup, based on certain indications and details. Regarding performance, one can expect a liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, single-cylinder DOHC engine producing around 40bhp of maximum power. A six-speed transmission will be mated to it, with a slipper and assist clutch to support.

In contrast to the fully digital cluster found in the prototype spotted in the UK, the instrument console also appears to be a semi-digital unit. The roadster is supported by upside-down front forks and a monoshock rear suspension. Further, front and rear disc brakes with a dual-channel ABS system is used for braking duties.
