The collaboration between Triumph and Bajaj Auto is finally upon us as the test mule motorcycle was caught doing rounds for the first time.
From its looks, the upcoming Baby Triumph will not be based on the Trident 660 or any of the Hinckley’s naked range, but instead, the test mule looks similar to the firm Scrambler 1200 lineup.
We can see that the test mule features some similar components and parts to those found on the Bajaj-built KTM 390 Duke.
According to YouTuber MOTOBOB, who came across the test bike, the dash is lifted straight from the 390 Duke, and while it could change later during the production stage, it shows how closely Triumph and Bajaj are working.
Other similar components taken from the 390 includes ByBre radially-mounted two-piston brake callipers.
While we know the bike runs on a single-cylinder Euro5 certified engine, the finer details, including the engine capacity (rumoured to be between 350cc to 500cc), is still unknown.
Although Bajaj is responsible for the engine development and manufacturing, the motorcycle will carry Triumph’s badge.
Looking at how aggressively Triumph’s is developing the new bike, we assume that the finished product will debut later this year.
The baby Triumph could find its way to rival other small capacity single-cylinder machines like the 390 Duke, BMW G 310, Honda CB300R, Royal Enfield Meteor 350 and Bajaj’s very own Dominar 400 UG.
