Triumph Tiger 1050



Creating the Triumph was determined to offer not another touring motorcycle, but a individualized with the help of its ability and sheer dependability. The was to fascinate the customer as soon as it the dealers shop with looks and features encountered on types of motorcycles, and than with the power of adapting to riding styles.


The Tiger was born together the Sprint ST in 1993 and it first a carbureted 885cc motor. evolving and craving for success, it fuel-injected in 1999, but that was a small step in comparison what was about to come.

year 2001 brought to the the brand new Triumph Tiger a road trail motorcycle the English manufacturer’s three-cylinder engine which powered, and does, the Sprint ST. This was way of telling us that it intends on one of the best tourers and it didn’t in any matter.

Even though the engine wasn’t a first for the one that saw its way on the Tiger was fitted different engine parts and it a fuel injection system. the gearbox and exhaust were designed for the new model. As a result of modifications, the engine developed at 9,500rpm.

It seems that Triumph its point with accuracy.

The public was long craving for a motorcycle so the occasion wasn’t by any fan. The bike was a total and the manufacturer well pleased the sales charts.

In 2002 the Tiger 955i came revised suspensions, resulting in a touring-oriented motorcycle. This longer journeys and larger on the rider’s faces.

Triumph wait long until it its very successful bike. revised for 2004, the Tiger now featured cast alloy updated swingarm and panniers the heated grips and centre were no longer found in the list, but on the bike.

The Tiger followed the evolutionary line of the ST (bigger engine, more and stronger-pulling engine for 2005) and in it became Triumph Tiger . The upgrade was logical and expected and the radical new styling really it up to date.


In the same and ready to fight the Triumph is the V Strom 1000, a bike in the same class only this one is dedicated to the concept every road should be for adventure. This means the V Strom is designed to carry you in to and from work while being able to offer you the of excitement on those dusty roads.

More able take into its out handlebars, the BMW R 1200 GS of 100 horsepower coming from its engine. The shaft drive us a big clue on the fact that one f made for the long run while the make sure that the will be smooth and full of

No matter against who you position the 1050, its three-cylinder engine definitely set it apart and its impressive will determine the choice of riders out there.


for the tall, adventure desiring and not only, the Triumph Tiger is the absolute touring bike, when it comes to looks. It impresses your friends, but won’t be the source of your joy as the offers awesome wind perfect for those journeys radically change the number on mileage register.

Underneath the which follow the shape of the you will find the aggressive air intakes. These, together the headlights and windscreen practically the entire shape of the front It will probably remind you of the generation FZ6 or maybe that’s me.

Designed to follow the fuel lines, the side panels and give the Tiger its imposing Actually, between the side front fairing and seat, the tank looks hidden, but the 5.2 inside it don’t.

Underneath the fairing and gas tank, the impressive inline three is black painted so that it match the matte black covers the frame and swingarm, but the exhaust and alloy wheels to make a difference.

Colors for the 2008 Tiger 1050 are than appropriate for the bike and to Triumph motorcycles. Jet Black, Blue, Blazing Orange or White are all appropriate for it and suit it

Test Drive

Riding the would seem like a demanding task, but you won’t that way once you swing a leg it and get a feel of that comfortable and incredibly perfect ergonomics. I enjoy an upright seating that would allow me to the gas tank many times a day and bike is perfect to do just It is able to go approximately 160 miles you need to refuel the 5.2 gallon and get going without any back or annoying wrist pain.

thanks to the efficient screen, protection is excellent and you won’t yourself needed to tuck the windscreen again.

Generally, the of bike that offers kind of feel is more to invite you enjoy the beautiful instead of quickly passing ignoring the view, but not the Triumph. bike agrees more the last situation and successfully with what it proposes.

With the help of its fuel-injected DOHC, in-line 3-cylinder engine, no challenge seems to and no trip to long. I enjoyed the throttle and getting familiar the way the engine pulls while the note always reminded me the time was to shift. Even the engine enjoys being and the acceleration is more than the Tiger’s engine prefers kept at around 4000-5000rpms, which allows you to enjoy at over 60mph.

The wet, clutch functions perfect and the in the lever allows you to confidently with the throttle when from a stop sign. enjoyable are the gear ratios, but you have the time to appreciate the clutch, or the way this bike while trying to keep the when riding with pals on Daytona and Sprint ST

Around town, the bike is enjoyable and it easily deals slow speed tight You will find that the is tuned for low and mid-range grunt so it is no for you when trying to detach city traffic. You wouldn’t want to travel between but the Tiger is able to do that time to time.

On twisty roads, this feels more at home anywhere else and I can understand It enjoys cornering thanks to its frame, 23.2 degree and 87.7mm trail. At 50 mph on a sinuous you won’t feel like it further although it would with the situation without problems.

It is unable to go off the road, but you regret it thanks to the 43mm down forks with preload, rebound and compression and monoshock with adjustable and rebound damping. The suspension are for street use and seemed more ok to me, but things wouldn’t have the same if the Tiger enjoyed the This one is more into jungle.

All that’s left for me to say is the brakes are more than and reassuring and I recommend you to take it on the twin 320mm floating 4 piston radial calipers up and the single 255mm disc, 2 caliper at the rear, before you get to them.


The Triumph 1050 establishes its price on your options. If you choose the model, the one that doesn’t the ABS option, the MSRP is $10,999, but if you go for the Braking System, no more or than $11,799 are required.

Coincidence or not, the Tiger’s retail prices are exactly the as the ones for which the Sprint ST is marketed.
