Rumours rumble on about Triumph making a 350cc single-cylinder bike, perhaps aimed at the Asian market. Should they do it?

Of course Triumph should make smaller capacity bikes. Bigger bikes whilst selling well in western countries are't really practical in Asian countries. Sure, people with money buy expensive imported big bikes to show their wealth and join the 'lifestyle' club, but hoinestly they do less miles on them than I do on my bicycle. Real riders in developing countries want generally up to 650cc bikes but smaller bikes are popular. The thing is, if you sell smaller bikes made in developing countries it makes the company stronger as lost of the underlying sales are based on small capacity bikes. Manufacturing in India, Thailand and even China are all quite possible.
I live in China a 250cc bike for 2000-2500 pounds would sell well, as would a 350-600 triple for around 3500-4000, if locally made.
