New triple confirmed for forthcoming Triumph Adventure

As revealed in this week's issue of MCN, Triumph has created a new engine for its forthcoming Adventure. A new official teaser video has just been released by the firm, revealing the choice of a new, long-stroke three cylinder engine based on the 675 to power the middleweight road and off-road bike versions of the bike. Triumph says in the video that the...

Welded subframe and footpeg hangers

Please tell me that the off-road version isn't going to have a welded subframe and welded on passenger footpeg hangers?

I thought this was supposed to be a serious adventure bike, not something for the ride from the road to the campside?

Front Wheel

On the off-road version the front wheel is clearly a 21". However, I am wondering whether the front tyre of the road version is a 17" or a 19". Personally, I would prefer a 17" as I use my bike 99.9% on the road. Sam

New Triumph Adventure bikes

The new bikes look good but why carn't they have a shaft drive? as this would certainly take a lot of sales away from BMW.

Shaft drive would mean higher price tag. I think they need to keep this bike affordable.

Hmm. I like all types of bikes, particularly off road ones, but I am struggling with this whole adventure thing. I mean a BMW 1200GS with sticky out cylinders and shaft drive must be the last thing you would want to take off road, so I reckon a lighter more nimble Triumph will sell like hot cakes. I have no idea why anyone would want to buy either though.

Well, some like to go off-road sometimes. But I agree the BMW is way to large and heavy for any intensive off-roading. I think the Triumph adventure will ride like any of their brilliant naked bikes on asphalt and will be twice as maneoverable off-road as the GS.

shaping up nicely

Pity though that it's taken Triumph so long to work out the kind of Tiger they really needed to build. You could spend your money on a fully sorted secondhand Africa Twin or Transalp or Cagiva Elefant like mine or BMW and have loads of cash to spare. I wonder if the Tiger will finally have somewhere to attach a decent bashplate this time.

Street triple tourer

Europe last year on a Sprint, this year a Street Triple R. Sprint too heavy for scratching, STR too revvy and windy on long roads to the twists. This might be my next bike?

By all accounts, the next gen big Tiger will be a shaft drive. I'm looking forward to riding this one though. Might be a great light, fun sports tourer.

@RSVV60, I'm glad it doesn't have shaft drive. If your shaft drive does pear shaped in the middle of a holiday - even somewhere pretty close to home - you will struggle to get it fixed and it might end the trip. If your chain has problems, the parts are generally something you can get from any bike dealer and it's fairly straightforward to fit.
