Triumph has just relieved that they’re cooking up a new Tiger for the showroom – and the release date is only a few months away.
Let’s get into it.
UK’s largest motorcycle manufacturer, according to their website, is currently in the testing phase of a final prototype that will not only set spec records for the company but will also purportedly give other contenders in the middleweight category a run for their money.
In Triumph’s words, “a new Tiger…is set to transform the middleweight adventure sports category and deliver a new benchmark in specification, capability, performance, and style”.
If we are truly to see a middleweight cat of a different color, we would be setting the bar around 650cc’s.
That’s slightly below Triumph’s highly popular 2021 Tiger 850 Sport – a big beastie with a brilliant bang for the buck when it comes to a good case of the zoomies.
The 850 has replaced its older sibling, the 2020 Tiger 800, and is currently the adventure bike with the lowest cc available from Triumph’s showroom.
We have another clue, listed in the title of the atrocious tease.
Should Triumph be headed in the direction I’m thinking, we’re about to get an adventure version of the 2017 Speed Triple – a 660cc-esque model with Triumph’s middleweight-friendly 675 cc engine, recently replaced by the larger 765cc Speed Triple S a few years ago.
