Triumph Tiger owners out there, we have a good news for you. To mark the occasion of selling 900 Tigers in India, Triumph motorcycles have announced a second edition of the Tiger Trails to Spiti. But this opportunity will only be for 15 riders.
The Spiti valley is a rarely traveled road but beautiful and serene, and the riders will be followed by a medical team. This trail seeks to train adventure lovers so that they graduate from being a rider to being an adventurer. The ride begins on 22nd July, 2018 and ends on 27th July, 2018. 15 of the chosen customers will get to experience the four day trail from Shimla to Manali. The Spiti Valley route exposes the rider to various terrain and riding conditions.
On day 1 riders start from Shimla and stop at Sangla, which is 180 kms and takes 6 hours. Day 2 they leave from Sangla and reach Nako, 175 kms away, in 5 hours. Day three covers a 111 kms route from Nako to Kaza via Gyu and Dhankar. Next day the riders get to travel around Kaza to Tashiganag and Demul. Finally Day 5 is the trip from Kaza to Manali, which is a 210 kms ride and takes 8 hours.
Vijay Pramar, founder of the Rally Raid de Himalaya and Chief trainer of Triumph Motorcycles India’s Off-Road programmes will be conducting a 5 day off road training programme before the Tiger Trails this year. The riders will be provided with every back up facility on the trail. 4*4 sweep with mechanics and emergency supplies including medical kit, tool kit, puncture kit, spare parts, pumps etc, and a VHF radio for communication purposes.
Mr. Vimal Sumbly, Managing Director, Triumph Motorcycles India commented on the Trail, “The Triumph Tiger has been pivotal in building the adventure riding category and culture in India and is currently the market leader within this fast-growing segment. As the pioneer in this category, we have recently introduced the all new Tiger 800 and the Tiger 1200. With its state-of-the-art features and rider focused technology the new Tigers are suited for both on and off-road riding, ensuring superb stability and control. The Tiger Trails welcomes active riders who already travel extensively but also seek to make the most of their Tigers. We 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.”
Amit Sadh, an actor and Triumph enthusiast, who will also be a part o the Spiti trail says, “I have ridden the Triumph Tiger regularly, but nothing beats riding it in the mountains and off-road trails, and that is what a Tiger is exactly meant for. I am looking forward to be a part of this training for the second time, not just because it will further improve my riding skills but will also give me some much needed me-time in one of the most beautiful parts of the country.”
