Triumph’s never-ending onslaught of new bikes shows no sign of slowing after a keen-eyed MCN reader scooped the new 2013 Triumph Tiger Sport 1050 parked while out testing.

The spy shot shows a new version of the current 1050cc inline three-cylinder road-biased adventure bike which remains a popular and good value machine often favoured by those who ride every day.

The bike is based on the current Tiger 1050 but side decals reveal its name as the Tiger Sport and it has clearly given a big makeover – the single-sided swingarm, wheels, front fairing, subframe and seat unit are all new.

The bike was spotted parked at a McDonald’s drive through outlet in Banbury, Oxfordshire. It was being ridden by factory test rider who appeared to be taking a break from the snowy conditions.

MCN reader Dan Hewitt took the picture and has been paid by MCN for the exclusive use of the images – just as you could be if you spot a new bike. All you have to do is email the images to andy.downes@motorcyclenews.com.
