They were to showcase three products on Day 2 of the Auto Expo. The Bonneville Street Twin, T120 and the Thruxton R. The third bike was still stuck at the Delhi airport customs. Hence Vimal Sumbly, MD Triumph Motorcycles India asked the media to be patient and see the third installment later in the day.

The Storm (all the four pics above) was among other bikes showcased at the Triumph stalls which created a huge buzz among the visitors.

Amusingly, on Day 2, which was a media-only event, the organisers let the general public in. And that created some ado with every visitor, young and old, wanting to click selfies with either the models or the bikes ;-).

Male models too were kind enough to pose for the visitors. Azad Sirohi, seen here with the 1215cc Triumph Adventure Tiger Explorer XC AND XR is from Delhi and aspires to be an actor.

The Adventure touring bike will be all yours for a whopping Rs 18,75,000 to begin with.
