I think it looks great

I'll certainly be interested in one. Looks like it's going to go tete-a-tete with the F800GS, but that Triumph triple might tip the balance for me.

I ate an apple. is correct
I ate an big apple. is wrong
I ate a big apple. is correct

It is all about the following phonic............

However,
"I ate a road apple" or "an road apple"
Would be wrong in either instance!

It will be available in black the year after you powdercoat yours!

Technically they cannot void warranty unless what you have done is the reason for the failure and thus then turn you down for warranty.

But mfg's know they have deeper pockets than you so they usually win on iffy things!

Let's see if this thread manages to stay independent and on topic...

Actually, I forgot one final thing on my list:

- How each model rides off road and on road
This is the only thing that matters, really.

If the bike is crap, all the rest doesn't matter.

I bet it's going to be a great bike, I plan to trade my 1050 Tiger for one.


Thanks

Oh, yeh... the brand which has an overcapacity on topics here at ADV and is much, much better as anything else on the planet...

Don't want to start that discussion again... Oops, I just did...

So back2topic.

I love the new tiger. But somehow it looks small...

Have to see it in the real flesh. I loved the MK1 ('93/94) Tiger. Every model after that one spoiled the real Big Trail Idea. It seems that Triumph is getting back on Track. MAIN-stream!

Looking forward to the bigger 1200 version which is announced for 2012 as well.

Well done!

hmmm.... looks good, definitely, but.... is it just me or does it kind of look like triumph went "hey guys that f800gs looks pretty good, let's make a bike like that but a little bit different"?? to me it looks a bit f800gs-ish in the photos above.. especially the one from the distance...

don't get me wrong, i think the new tiger is a sexy looking bike, just not as "original looking" as perhaps i would have liked...

of course if it performs i'd still be damn keen to have one

It means exactly the same to me, but then again I'm not that pedantic.
