The Triumph Tiger 800 & 800 XC Revealed

A few weeks ahead of its big debut at the Milan Motorcycle Show a hungarian web site has published a photo-gallery of Triumphs new adventure bikes, the Tiger 800 and Tiger 800 XC.  This is the first real opportunity to study the bike’s details beyond spy shots and the single official Triumph image released a few days ago.

The Tiger certainly seems to be ticking all the design boxes for an adventure bike, and while many thought the Ducati Multistrada 1200 would be the GS challenger, it didn’t really dent the GS’s reputation as ultimate adventure bike.  Triumph’s Tiger range and its upcoming 1200cc version could just be the silver bullet to BMW’s monster bikes.

A few pictures are below and you can find more on Motorinfo.hu here

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.

Triumph’s 2011 Tiger, Thunderbird Storm, & Speed Triple on Video

Triumph has released a flashy video showcasing models from its upcoming 2011 range.  Included in the video are the new Speed Triple, Tiger adventure bike, models from the cruiser range, and more.  Triumph have got a lot of good PR mileage out of the Cologne Motorcycle show this week, with the only hiccup being the new headlights on the Speed Triple.  Next year is looking very good for the company’s finances, and ever growing popularity.

2011 Triumph Tiger Adventure Bike, Clothing & Accessories Video

Triumph have a new video up featuring some of the accessories which it will have available at the launch of its new Tiger adventure bikes.

They’ve covered all the important and expected stuff i.e. sump guard, touring screens, luggage, protection items.

All in all a good package this way comes, whether it can knock BMW from its perch remains to be seen. Performance, not bolts ons will decide that.
