I wonder if there will be multiple versions released. I'm concerned about the wheels not being spoked.

It's not a dirt bike, so why would they be spoked? Look at the location of the muffler...Clearly it is meant as a street bike...like the Tiger 1050 before it...

I agree - this bike is definitely on the street side of adventure touring. It looks like it attacts gravity!

Where did they hide the rear shock? And the centerstand is standard - that is nice. I think that this bike is in a whole different market than the 800.

Kinda looks like an angry bird rather than a tiger. I like it though.

Looks like there is going to be some serious arse kicking from the 1200.

Although I still think the 800 is a better choice for a "day to day" bike.

I wouldn't necessarily assume the centre stand is standard because it's in the photos.

three tigers loose in europe

Hi all

had the privilege to ride a tiger 800 round Europe and England for near 9 weeks in July august September with two of my best mates..

have a strom at home (Australia) and the comparison was interesting....

great engine but lacks some character as it has no power band...not the the strom is much better

very good fuel economy..on par with strom

top heavy...humm this i didnt like..did i mention im 161 cm tall

great riding position to up to 130 kph and none of the buffeting you get with a strom

i think the strom handles better for me but the upside down forks of the tiger are better as are the brakes even though they look much the same as the strom

overall a very good bike well worth consideration

and a special mention

thank you to the guys at ON YER Triumph Aston Clinton just outside of London who sold us the bikes bought them back, allowed us to us their address for registration and insurance and were great in all way!

how fat is the bum....

Does anyone have a spare ait filter they could overnight me today, and I'll get one back to you later this week? I need to get my bike on the road for a couple days before leaving on a trip this weekend, and this is where I'm at

Thanks
