Brand new for 2007, the Triumph Tiger 1050 is set to revolutionize the motorcycle market with look that demands attention.
The angular lines of the headlight cowl muscle up around the tank and flow beautifully to the upswept tail, while a moment on the Tiger’s back offers an enticing fit.
The potent Speed Triple-derived engine has been tweaked to suit the Tiger’s unique temperament, delivering immense power and ear-to-ear grins.
A sophisticated engine management system offers twice as much memory as before, allowing a quicker start and improved fuel economy while multi-adjustable front and rear suspension keeps things firmly planted.
The Tiger slinks through snarled up traffic, while the commanding view gives the rider the jump on everyone. Sharp appearance and powerful build boast the sporting nature of the Tiger, while a relaxed riding position, spacious seat and supple suspension offers comfort that will have you touring way into the wilds, alone or two-up, on a bike that happily devours miles of tarmac.
Supremely comfortable, two-up tourer; sporty solo funster or sleek, stylish city bike: There are very few genuine all-round motorcycles in existence. The Tiger is certainly one of them.
2007 Triumph Tiger 1050 – 1050 ABS Specifications
The Tiger 1050 is designed to occupy a different space to other bikes in its class, excelling in three distinct areas. Triumph says that the Tiger 1050 was developed for “carving the tight and technical switchbacks, slicing through traffic each day or loading up and heading for the opposite coast with your passenger”.
Triumph engineers have worked hard to give the new Tiger 1050 the edge it needs to excel. It has all-round practicality, comfort and now the new Tiger 1050 brings the added elements of sporting performance that was lacking in the original Tiger.
