Makes sense.. now that Triumph has a true big-cc dual sport bike (1200 Adventure), they can stop trying to sell the 1050 Tiger as an on/off road bike.

The spy shot shows a single side swingarm, and a different front fairing, presumably to help with the dismal lighting the stock 1050s come with.

Turning the 1050 Tiger into a true 'upright sport touring bike' makes
perfect sense to me.. they already have the platform, they already have the motor, and they already have a single-side swingarm (Speed Triple).

Why not..

Do not regret growing older, it's a privilege denied to many.
