British motorcycle manufacturer Triumph has flagged off the second edition of its Tiger Trails to Spiti, Himachal Pradesh. The event aims to open up the terrains of Spiti for a session of training, discovering and bonding. Triumph is also focusing on safety and experience through this annual event.
Speaking about the five day programme, Vimal Sumbly, Managing Director, Triumph Motorcycles India said, “With over 900 Tiger customers in the country Triumph Motorcycles does not just deliver great motorcycles, we also create an ecosystem in which the rider is equipped with the skill sets to ride deftly and safely. Our initiatives like the Triumph Tiger Trails and Tiger Training Academies have had an overwhelming response across India. With the recent introduction of the all new Tiger 800 and the Tiger 1200, the game just got better. We have and will be working on more of these curated programmes to further our commitment to building a safe riding culture in India, and to promote the spirit of adventure in the country”.
Taking a step beyond the Triumph Tiger Training Academy, 20 Triumph Tiger customers from all over India are participating in the five-day trail starting from Shimla on July 22 and will end on July 27 in Manali. The route chosen across Spiti will give the riders exposure to different terrains and challenges to make their ride/training holistic and unlocking the potential of their Triumph Tigers in the process. Real-time training sessions outside the controlled environment of a track setup will help the riders prepare themselves for every riding scenario, whether man-made or nature-driven.
Veteran rider, adventure enthusiast and Triumph Tiger Academy chief trainer Vijay Parmar said, “Triumph Motorcycles is the first brand in India, that has taken the adventure motorcycling segment to the next level. Triumph is doing a commendable job by engaging with the customers and enthusiasts by making them experience the best potential of the tiger range of motorcycles. As a brand, they are always vocal about road safety and ensuring riders ride responsibly at all times. I am extremely happy to be associated with the brand and observe a great riding culture spread across its riders”.
