Triumph Tiger 1050 gets makeover

Triumph has given the Tiger 1050 a host of changes for 2012 including upgraded suspension, a sportier riding position and new graphics. The changes cover the 1050 and 1050SE models with the changes helping to give the bike a fresh and sportier appearance; something Triumph is doing to distinguish the bike from the new 1200 Adventure bike the firm will launch...

I have a 1050SE in Grey/Black from last year, great bike, great engine, hope the suspension tweaks have improved it though, i've spent a grand at my mate Mr Maxton to sort it out...ok, its not that bad that you need to go and spend that much on new front internals and a custom shock, but after ridining sports bikes for the last ten years you get accustomed to decent bouncy bits, so thats my personal choice....the bikes fantastic now..

They should build a new road based Tiger with 17 inch wheels and the new 1200 motor in it, there are lots of blokes a bit peed off that the new one is a GS clone ( i dont understand why some are suprised its this way!!) GS is the market leader and Triumph want a piece.....

New Tiger 1050

I agree Triumph seem to have just modded the bike like most owners had to do to get the bike iust the way they want. Its a fact the triumph soft suspension gets even softer the more miles you do . I took mine to hyperpro and had it properly sorted . Its a lot more fun on the track now.

Buts its nice to see Triumph updating the suspension on most of there sports and urban models watching what the customers do with the bikes and adding it to the next generation of bikes.

looking forward however to having a ride on the new Adventure bike when it comes out with a 1200+/-cc engine although a few more horsepowers in the 1050 would have been great I often see others on track days when you sort the suspension ther real fun bikes .
