The Tiger namesake has stood the test of time at Triumph

Motorcycles. While the Tiger’s spec sheet has changed considerably over the years, the bike itself has

always been synonymous with free-spirited travel.

The 2009 Triumph Tiger SE pays tribute to the generations of riders who have created their own

adventures aboard a Tiger. The Special Edition model begins with the ABS (anti-lock braking system)

version of the Triumph Tiger and adds a distinctive new matte graphite and matte black two-tone paint

scheme with color-matched saddle bags and hand guards.

The Tiger SE’s unique color scheme was inspired by one of Triumph’s most cherished employee

benefits: the privilege of specifying a bike with custom paint. The Triumph design team was experimenting with different colors and found that the combination worked so well with the lines of the Tiger that the factory decided to make it available on the limited edition Tiger SE.

“The Tiger has received rave reviews for being one of the best all-around bikes on the market,”

said Jim Callahan, North American Marketing Manager for Triumph Motorcycles. “The new Tiger SE’s custom matte graphite and black paint really sets the bike apart from the other motorcycles in its class. It looks fantastic, so you’ll want to hurry while they’re still in stock.”

The Tiger’s current platform was first introduced in 1994 and has evolved into a well-rounded sport

touring motorcycle that is perfect for cutting through the urban jungle, devouring highway miles and

carving through challenging mountain passes.

The Tiger is powered by Triumph’s highly-acclaimed 1050cc three-cylinder engine that delivers

113hp at 9,400rpm and 74 ft. lbs. of torque at 6,250rpm. An adjustable sport suspension and 120

front/180 rear sport tires mounted on 17-inch wheels are combined with powerful Nissin brakes for

exceptional, confidence-inspiring handling.

Comfort has always been a strong point for the Tiger. Both the rider and passenger benefit from

great ergonomics, excellent wind protection and rubber mounted handle bars and foot pegs. Hard saddle bags and luggage are available as well as a tank bag, heated grips and a host of other accessories.

Triumph has transformed its popular Tiger adventure-sport model with the unveiling of a striking new special edition at the INTERMOT motorcycle show, held in Cologne, Germany.

Taking the ABS version of the Tiger as its base, the SE features a distinctive new Matt Graphite and Matt Black colour scheme. Priced in the region of £9,000 OTR this new flagship to the Tiger family has even more versatility thanks to the addition of colour-matched panniers (with a combined capacity of 44 litres) and handguards as standard.

The two-tone colour scheme enhances the standard Tiger’s looks with an air of classic British sophistication and was inspired by one of Triumph’s company employee benefits: being able to specify a bike with non-standard colours. As Simon Warburton, Triumph’s Product Manager, explains, “Some of the design team were trying out different bodywork colours and while changing panels over they noticed that the combination of Matt Black and Matt Graphite worked really well. From this we developed the unique two-tone scheme that you see, which expresses the individuality of the special edition model perfectly.”

First introduced in 1994 as a versatile dual-purpose machine, the Tiger has evolved into the complete all-rounder that can tour, commute and scratch in equal measures. The Tiger’s commanding off-road style upright riding position is perfect for cutting through the urban jungle, devouring motorway miles and carving through challenging mountain passes.

The latest incarnation of the Tiger is powered by Triumph’s highly-acclaimed 1050cc three-cylinder engine, delivering peak power of 115PS (113bhp) at 9,400rpm and 100Nm (74ft.lbf) torque at 6,250rpm. Adjustable sports suspension and 120 front/180 rear sports tyres combined with powerful radial front caliper Nissin brakes endow the Tiger with the agility, handling and braking to let you fully exploit the potent triple. The 20 litre fuel tank provides a realistic 200 mile (320km) range, adding to the Tiger’s practicality and touring ability.

The Tiger SE will be produced in limited numbers and will be in official Triumph dealerships from Spring 2009.

The standard Tiger remains unchanged and continues to be available with or without ABS, in three colour options for 2009: Fusion White, Jet Black and Blazing Orange.
