Speaking about the announcement, Shoeb Farooq, General Manager, Triumph Motorcycles India said, “Triumph Motorcycles has decided to defer the upcoming BS6 price increase amidst the current difficult and unprecedented circumstances due to the COVID19 pandemic. We also understand that our customers would have been concerned with their motorcycle warranties expiring in March & April and services lapsing in the lockdown period, hence to ease their concerns we’ve decided to extend the expiring warranties until 30th June 2020 & any lapsed periodic maintenance during the lockdown will not impact warranty as long as customer gets it done within a month of the lockdown opening. At the back end we are preparing our dealerships to handle any increased service volume post the lockdown and we’ve put processes in place to ensure a smooth customer experience. These are trying times and as a brand we want to offer as much support to our customers as possible.”
Triumph says that the warranty of the bikes will not be affected due to delay in periodic maintenance during the lockdown period, as long as customers get the bike serviced within 30 days after the lockdown has been lifted. At present, India is under the second phase of a nationwide lockdown until May 3, 2020. It could be extended depending on the number of COVID-19 cases and the growth curve of the virus. Currently, Telangana is the only state to announce the lockdown extension until May 7, 2020.
