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..
New swingarm, rear seat (luggage?), rear tyre size, fairing, headlights, and handle-bars. I think.
