Simon Warburton on the Triumph Tiger Sport 1050

Simon Warburton, Triumph’s Product Manager “Even though the Tiger 1050 is the oldest bike in our range now, there are still people buying it, albeit not anywhere near the numbers it sold before, so we thought there’s still space for it. It is a little bit of a gamble and we could’ve discontinued it, but we thought they’d still be...

Looks good

Should be a great all-rounder, certainly worth a test ride.

Who needs all the electronic gizmo's which add complication and expense, for very little, if any benefit ?

 

Tho I'm still waiting for a new Sprint    ;-)

Hmmmmm

"there are still people buying it, albeit not anywhere near the numbers it sold before" 


 That's because it has fallen behind the times:( 

 It was one of the  first adventure bikes, if not THE first adventure bike, but with 17 inch wheels which was 99% road focused. And it WAS great then.

But now i think the Ducati MTS is the dogs dooo dars and Triumph don't really make beater for that yet.

tiger 1050 could have been good using a Speed triple 133bhp engine with active suspension, but now already written into the history books.

well, if money was no object I would surely love to have Multistrada, but I really like even the `old` Tiger 1050... these updates make it look and surely feel even better... for those who say not powerfull enough, well, look elsewhere...for me every liter bike is more than powerfull enough...

Not too late

Lots of us have never owned a tiger previously. This one looks like it'll be the best one yet for all sorts of riding. I'm never intending to ride off road and if I did I'd buy an off road bike not a massive brittle plastic clad over powered behemoth. For most of us, most of the time this still ticks loads of boxes. Don't dismiss it because it can't be pigeon-holed alongside the latest trend. It looks fairly reasonably priced (no bargain mind you!) and it will still make a lot of people happy. It still has a place in motorcycling despite not being an attempt at surfing the crest of the current wave. It's a continued nod towards the ordinary needs of most motorcyclists. Nice one Triumph for remembering our feet are still on the ground.
