Triumph Tiger 800 gets the supermoto treatment
15 September 2011 11:07
This supermoto version of Triumph's Tiger 800 is the latest special to be built by Jack Lilley Triumph of Ashford, Middlesex.
It started life as a standard, new Tiger 800 to which Lilley has added a host of custom features. Wheels are 800 XC hubs laced to 17-inch Excel rims, it has a Speed Triple 1050 belly pan and front guard with Street Triple headlights and flyscreen, race levers and an Arrow exhaust. It's finished in Triumph Imperial Purple.
Dave Lilley told MCN: "The first time I saw the Tiger I knew I wanted to try to build a supermoto version. Clive Wood who used to run Jack Lilley Racing helped build the bike and did a fantastic job. We just wanted to prove that it can be done. It's different to everything else that you see and a lot of the people that come into the dealership go straight to it."
The bike is currently for sale for £10,999 but copies or variations are also possible. "If somebody wants a special built then the answer is always yes," said Lilley. "I'll do everything I can to get it done."
