Triumph Adventure 1200: Triumph's big adventure

With the new Triumph Tiger 800 and Triumph Adventure 1200 set to be released soon, we thought we'd take a look at how Triumph got serious about the dual sports sector.

I'd like one

Particularly if it is comfortable on the highway like the R1200GS but doesn't cost as much.  John Bloor is one very smart businessman.  There's got to be a way to make a GS competitor that doesn't cost $18,000.  Sorry Yamaha, but you missed the target.  It should cost less, not more than a GS.

It hits the spot

I think the Tiger 800 will make a great 1 up adventure tourer, provided it has a decent tank range, which is the main let down of the GS800. Ideal for touring out of the way places on small roads where pot holes and dirt/gravel capability gets you to the more interesting places. Their are plenty of these sort of places even within Europe.

Can't wait

If the new Tigers are anything like as great to own and ride as a Tiger 955i that I once owned and did many miles on, they will be winners. Whilst it's Japanese rivals are struggling to come up with only one or two properly new models this year, Triumph are pushing forward with a raft of new models. Who says the British motoring industry is dead? A British brand and product to be proud of. I buy the flag and ride the flag...
