WHEN I first about the Tiger Sport I it was going to be a faster, lighter and agile Triumph Tiger. cuddly but with added a Tiger with more

It’s not quite that

Forget the ‘Sport’ name for a This is a meticulous update to one of most popular bikes the past five years, the 1050.

Sure, it’s got 10 horsepower, a new single-sided swingarm and looks. While those may be the headlines that catch attention it’s the smaller that make the difference. it features ABS there are no power nor any traction control.

Just looking at reviews Visordown’s Triumph Tiger owners, it’s clear the Tiger 1050 is a well-loved a motorcycle ridden by older, experienced riders who cover milages.

According to Triumph’s own owners love the engine practicality and riding position but too keen on a handful of areas the pillion position, fuel and standard equipment. With feedback in mind, Triumph’s set to work to meet their but also improve handling, styling and ergonomics.
