Triumph Motorcycles is back again this year with the second edition of the Tiger Trails Spiti. Open to 15 Triumph Tiger owners, the four-day trail ride will start from Shimla on July 22, 2018, taking the participants through different locations such as Sangla, Nako and Kaza before concluding in Manali. The ride-cum-training program will allow the Tiger owners to move up from being just riders to adventurers.

For the comfort and safety of the participants, backup facilities will be available including a 4×4 sweep vehicle with mechanics and equipped with supplies such as medical kit, tool kit, puncture kit, spare parts, pumps etc. The vehicle will also have a VHF radio so that communication can be maintained with the riders throughout the journey. Before the start of the adventure trail, the 15 participants will also receive an off-road skills training programme which will be conducted over a period of five days and will be led by Vijay Parmar, founder of Raid de Himalaya. The riders will receive training on how to ride their Triumph Tigers on the different terrains and challenges — to make the ride more enjoyable and safer.

Managing Director, Triumph Motorcycles India, Vimal Sumbly said, “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.”
