From the Triumph Motorcycles Limited description of the 2006 Tiger:
“The horizon is the Tiger’s destination, vast expanses its home. It thrives on challenge and lives for the journey and, no matter the task in hand, performs as only a bike with its depth can.
And it’s tauter, sharper and more usable than ever thanks to a completely new chassis. Cast wheels allow wide, sticky tires that are fully exploited by the honed, lowered suspension and quick-steering frame geometry. Total competence and neutrality, from sinuous switchback to four-lane black top, is Tiger territory.
Powering the Tiger is a seminal fuel-injected, 955cc, three-cylinder engine. A motor that’s the very definition of real-word drivability, a motor that instantly involves the rider with every twist of throttle and turn of crankshaft. Mile after mile, horizon after horizon.
Practical, common sense touches – like custom-fit hard cases as standard – and tens of thousands of miles’ experience make the Tiger a trusted traveling companion. And each comes with a guarantee of riding satisfaction, of distance covered, tales told and journeys won. Of adventure.
The world’s a big place. The Tiger has its measure.”
