A triple whammy, literally
Leaving aside all the folk who say Triumphs new Tiger800 & Explorer 1200 are nothin new...c'mon, here's number three bike ! No stopping them.
I can put money the rivals never thought triumph would be as serious and have the bikes to back up their recent endeavours. This, yet another new model (?) says it all. At the rate triumph are going they are going to have a HUGE chunk of the market sales in 2012 and 2013. Sure why not.
If the bike pictured above is indeed a new "Tiger 1050 sport" as the title story reads, its fairly well kitted out. You can see its got ABS and a few trick bits on the bars. Steering angle looks steep so no doubt will be a quick turning bike. Looks tall too. Single side swing arm always a bonus.
Well done Triumph. Screw number crunching (accountants making all the decisions), give the public the bikes they want and they will buy them. The tiger800 is proof and so will the 1200 Explorer and this new 1050 sport.
Nothin worse than a certain say, Japanese manufacturer wHo has lost their way, dictating what they think is the way forward and giving us mediocre designed bkes on old chassis with small petrol tanks and Huge prices. Tut Tut.
Three strikes for Triumph against the opposition!!! David & the goliaths...lol
Well done to "dansrockin" for the pictures. Would like to see more, but maybe MCN were asked NOT to publish by Triumph more than likely, understandable.
Triumph-ant as I have said before ;)
