Autohub Group scored 2 major accomplishments by finally being bestowed the official distributorship of iconic brands; Triumph Motorcycles and Shelby Performance Parts. Mr. Willie Tee Ten, President of Autohub, broke the news to select media members in a small breakfast gathering.
Mr. Tee Ten happily confessed that it was only the night before that Triumph Motorcycles gave the go-signal to announce the partnership to the public. He also said that after years of “courting” Triumph, with other local companies competing for the honor, Autohub finally prevailed and officially became the official Philippine distributor, complete with after- sales support, with full warranty, of course.
When asked about the sale of gray market units and if they will be serviced, Mr. Tee Ten answered in the affirmative; they will entertain all units bought before Oct 9, 2019 (official announcement date), otherwise, units bought after will have to pay a premium before being serviced.
Mr. Sammy Montecastro, General Manager for Triumph, stated that enthusiasts can look forward to seeing the following models in the Philippines: Adventure motorcycles (Tiger 800 & Tiger 1200), roadsters (Street Triple, Speed Triple, and Rocket 3), and modern classics (Bonneville T100, Bonneville T120, Thruxton, Street Twin, Street Scrambler, Speed Twin, Scrambler 1200, Bonneville Bobber, and Bonneville Speedmaster).
