Breaking news from India is that Triumph will be launching a brand new 250cc motorcycle. The announcement comes from Rudhy Siswanto, the President of distributor of Triumph Motorcycles in Indonesia.

Slated for the Indian and Indonesian markets initially, the bike is going to sport a liquid-cooled, twin-cylinder engine and will be manufactured at Triumph plant in Narsapur, India. The bike is expected to have naked styling in line with the KTM Duke 200, and it’s other Indian competitors. It will face fierce competition from the likes of the Kawasaki Ninja 250R and the Honda CBR250R.
We previously broke the story of Triumph intention to develop a 300cc single for the Brazilian market. No news yet on whether this announcment indicates a change in that direciton, or a complementary offering.
In the past we would have said that seeing this bike Stateside would be a pipe dream, but with the Big Four Japanese manufactures in the U.S. 250 segment, anything is possible. Stay tuned…

This is awesome. I really enjoy me some STR. I wonder what this will feel like-perform in the real world. Can't wait to read reviews. And by the way, you went "postal" on this NN forum. Your everywhere :)
