Official Accessories for Triumph’s New Tiger Adventure Bike

Triumph has revealed some new accessories for its new Tiger adventure bikes.  A set of rugged looking panniers for touring, and a high touring screen are set to grace the bike as optional add-ons when they launch.

Triumph obviously realize that one of the great things about class leading adventure bikes, like the BMW GS range, is the vast array of bolt on bits and pieces, and are going for broke with their entry to the market.

With a 1200 GS killer spotted testing recently, Triumph intend an unprecedented assault for the hearts and minds of adventurers everywhere.

Accessorise Your New Yamaha XT1200Z Super Tenere!

Ride The Wild Wind is slowly turning into Yamaha’s press office it would seem, but as mentioned in earlier posts the Turkish Motorcycle Show in Istanbul has seen a flurry of Yamaha news this week and RTWW is just reporting on it, honestly.

However … if Yamaha would like to donate a Super Tenere as the official RTWW bike I won’t say no, just in case any Yamaha staff are checking us out : ) yes I have no shame….

Annnyway… Back to business….

Yamaha has added an accessories page to its web site for the new Super Tenere, and it all looks rather good.  Have to say I’m really impressed by this bike so far, and increasingly nervous that first ride reports will show it to be complete pants! (cough! Honda VFR1200f cough!)

Much of the accessories are pretty standard adventure bike stuff, taller screen, crash bars, belts and buckles for luggage, tank bag, pannier and top box bags, fog lamps etc.  One of my favourites has to be the lower seat option shaving a further 35mm off the standard seat’s lowest setting of 835mm.  Brilliant for those of us who are somewhat, how shall we say, inner leg challenged.  The best one however has to be the original PR image of the ‘Lord of Adventure’ as a tank pad!
