Bikes For Sale

We gave this Triumph Tiger 1200 Explorer five stars when it was released. Today we've found a 2012 version up for sale. 

Seller says

“This Triumph has a manual 6 speed gearbox and is a 2012, 12 Reg. With 11,136 miles, in black, it has two Owners from new and five stamps in the service book — last being at 10,157 miles. It also has several nice extras, including hand guards, fog lights, engine bars and radiator guard.

MCN says

"This version was with more power, better handling, more agility and arguably better styling than the R1200GS.

"It weighs in on the heavier side and never feels quite as exciting and as pure as the relatively lightweight GS, but in every other way it has the BMW knocked."
