Official & Spy Shots of the new Triumph Tiger

Two shots have emerged of Triumphs big break into the adventure market.  First up is an official image of the new Tiger 800 XC ahead of its big debut and it’s looking good, now that we’re not trying to see it through holes in a wooden crate!

While the official image showcases the off-road version of the Tiger, a spy shot caught at a fuel stop, following  a highway chase, features the road bias model of the bike.  The telling feature between the two is the cast 19 inch wheels on the road preferring version as opposed to the 21 inch with spokes wheels for the dirt scrambler.  Both bikes feature the same engine and other features and look to be fit challengers for the BMW F800GS.

The spy shot comes from George Edwards who tracked the Tiger until it stopped for fuel.  George has an excellent web site of his and his wife Cathy’s biking adventures over at www.rtrider.co.uk check it out.
