No, you silly. It is merely a bike with a 7 gallon tank that gers 14 mpg. As posted elsewhere the new Triumph Tiger 800 creates its own fuel from spent exhaust gasses, thus a large tank is not necessary.

My understanding was that this was supposed to be a hardcore adventure bike. What sort of hardcore adventure are you going on where there are other cars? Or roads??

He lives in North Portland. Just avoiding stray bullets there is an adventure unto itself. Fortunately the force field of the new Triumph Tiger 800 DS should solve that little problem.
