Tiger roars on for another year

TRIUMPH was rumoured to be ditching the Tiger from its line-up – but this prototype shows there’s life in the big trailie yet.

Insiders claim an all-new replacement Tiger has been put on hold but that hasn’t stopped Triumph giving the current model a revamp.

The biggest change is clearly the wheels. Triumph has chosen an all-new alloy design, that appears to extremely lightweight, in place of the wire spoked rims of the current Tiger. There’s a new alloy swingarm, too, which loses the convenient eccentric chain adjuster of the old bike in favour of a lighter, conventional sliding adjuster.

Both the wheels and swingarm will reduce the bike’s unsprung weight – offering improved handling.

The bike is expected to be revealed in final form later this month.
