Triumph to increase 400 lineup production

Bajaj and Triumph have decided to ramp up the production capacity of their new co-developed offerings, the Speed 400 and the Scrambler 400 X, to 10,000 per month by the end of this financial year to meet the high demand in India. Recently, the Triumph Scrambler 400 X also launched after its Speed 400, the latter gaining quite a success which led to this above-mentioned high demand.

Bajaj and Triumph – What’s the plan?

The Plan was to produce 5,000 units per month at the new Chakan Plant and the current capacity of the plant is 5,000-7,000 units per month but with the delivery of over 8,000 new units since the commencement of its deliveries in August and increasing demand, the companies decided to increase their production.

Apart from that, with the success of the Bajaj and Triumph collaboration, the former also plans to launch at least one model under Triumph’s name annually.
