The 2013 Tiger Sport

Details Industry Published on Sunday, 13 2013 10:43 Written by

The Triumph Tiger moniker has bandied about quite a bit the recent year or so as several new have all be adorned with a of the Tiger name. With the 800 and 800XC as well as the Tiger Triumph has convincingly thrown hat into the adventure bike and have been making a bit of buzz since their But what about the Tiger That particular model the 955 as well) was sort of stuck pigeon-holes as it were.

It had the height and gave it an adventure bike but like the Kawasaki Versys and V-Strom, these were not full on adventure bikes.

I may be criticized for saying that and I that with the right some more appropriate and some suspension fiddling/upgrades, any bikes could be wrangeld off but in stock form, there are choices. In fact the new 800 and 1200 are a perfect example of what to be done to meet challenge of riding, but I digress. The Tiger looked like it might be the way of the Dodo, like it’s the Sprint 1050, but instead of it appears the Tiger 1050 live on in the new 2013 Tiger

With the Tiger Sport, has dropped the pretense that bike is made for some of off-road use and instead has targeted it at the street rider. This is a thing and a welcome addition to the which many felt had a left in it after the Sprint the picture. In fact the only in the Triumph stable that uses the venerable 1050 besides the Tiger is the Speed

The Speed 3 is certainly a great for that engine, but the layout of the 3 isn’t for everyone.

With the new Triumph has a great touring with a good dose of mixed in, but it is a heavy tourer The Speed 3 is a super fun bike to no doubt, but maybe, for some at not the most comfortable or luggage ride for the daily commute or afternoon/weekend rides. The Tiger looks to fill the gap between two bike,s and on paper, has the chops to do so.

The New Tiger Sport still has taller stance and underseat that makes its heritage but updated styling has been to the fairing and bodywork and the the Tiger now has the single sided swingarm the Speed 3 and Sprint 1050. The also looks similar (if not the as the ones from the previous Speed 3.

The engine in the Tiger has been retuned (or simply from the 1050 Sprint as the HP and numbers look nearly to the last generation Sprint. is up a few percent on each value the previous Tiger 1050 and now the engine makes 123 bhp at 9400 rpm and a 77ft.lbs at 4300 rpm. previous model’s number 113 and 74 respectively)

Engine improvements are always but Triumph didn’t stop The fully adjustable suspension some updating to both rates and damping and the steering has been slightly steepened as presumably to make the Sport flick-able. Braking between curvy bits of road is thanks to a newly revised ABS with a new modulator for better when the system engages.

The look has been updated a new fairing containing new headlights. is the deeply pocketed seat of the Tiger 1050 and now the pillion closer in height to the rider and to the ground overall making it for the passenger to get on and off the Sport. The seat is 5mm lower for the rider as well is welcome to riders of shorter

The luggage (available as an option) has updated and increased in payload by 10kg for each pannier to the new aluminum luggage rails on the Tiger Sport. The luggage is of Triumphs DLS, or Triumph Luggage System, which the luggage to swing from to side as the bike travels the road and makes its way through wind.

So it all sounds good and on a personal very exciting, as I own a Sprint and the new Tiger Sport seems to on the spirit of comfortable sport that the Sprint 1050 did still does) so well. The concern at this point is Triumph has not yet announced US availability of the Sport. Much of the information was gleaned from the UK Triumph and indeed, the Tiger 1050 and are absent at this point the USA Triumph site.

Rumors are though that the Sport will be coming to our but perhaps as an early 2014 instead of a 2013. This is unconfirmed though so don’t me :). You can quote me, though, as stating I think the Tiger Sport be one excellent all-rounder meeting the of the commuter, the day tripper, and the weekend all with equal aplomb.
