Triumph Tiger 800!!

The new Triumph Tiger will have an all new 800cc Three Cylinder Engine and an all new frame that is similar to a Ducati Tubular steel Trellis frame.

There will be two editions a Road Spec and an Adventure Spec.
Alloy 10 spoke wheels for the road version and wire wheels for the Adventure.

All this stuff is not speculations. I have seen the Triumph's official Tiger 800 brochure. Maybe I'll try to find a picture.

I've heard quite a bit of criticism of the 1050cc engine. Maybe this new power plant will add some performance and lose some weight. I'd like to see something about that size in the sprint, too. Assuming the rumors true, of course...

The 1050 is a GREAT motor.....its not a great super sport motor, there is quite a distinction there.

Great choice of an already overused name--"I ride an Adventure"--Which one?--Triumph, KTM, or BMW

Every ride is an adventure. On road, off road. Both? The triple engine is going to be a difficult one to make a good off roader. Not that I care. The only way I'm going off road is not going to be pretty.

Definitely sounded more 675 than 1050. I need to start hounding the dealer.

Slightly used '09 Tiger 1050, anyone?
