Confusion about Triumph in Thailand. I talked to Britbike company at RCA in Bangkok, they call themselves the official Thai distributor. But Triumph UK sales office calls Brithbike Co., Ltd (Thailand) a Triumph dealer.
So what is Britbike Co., Ltd, Dealer or Distributor?
I believe the reason why Triumph UK calls Britbike a Triumph Dealer, a distributor needs to sale some sort of target amount of motorcycles. As Thailand is still growing, we can say the whole Thai big-bike market is in a early stage, while Triumph's (UK head office) target is a bit fashioned on the European acceptance of big bikes.
I know 2 persons who actual bought a motorcycle from Britbike, both are still very happy, something what is rare in Thailand after a few years of ownership. If I can remember it correct, the “green-book” was available within a month after the purchase, but this can be faster or a bit slower. This has little to do with Britbike, it all depends on how busy it is at the Department of Transport.
