I heard at a dealer last weekend it will be the 675 engine. From the Triumph site I bet it is stroked to a 750.

I heard that it will split space and time and open new pathways to other universes: and usher in the age of Aquarius too.

this thing is so hardcore and I am going to buy it because I am so hardcore.

Breaking News

Tehran, Iran
1 September 2010

Mahmoud Armanidinnerjacket, President of the Islamic Republic of Iran, announced today that all research and testing research and production of nuclear energy was being halted immediately.

In an open press conference, he noted, "We are tired of being billed as a rogue nation and are anticipating that this concession to western powers will allow us to have full and free access to the new Triumph Tiger 800 DS".

He added, "I mean, what's the point of having nuclear weapons on hand if there is any chance at all that they might harm one of these marvelous new bikes?"

Commenting on the remarks, the Grand Ayatollah of the Islamic Republic of Iran opined, "The new Triumph Tiger 800 DS will open the doors to world peace and a universal harmony that would please Prophet Mohammed if he were alive today".

Thanks - on the whole, this place is much more fun than all the other copy cat threads about the new Triumph Toger 800 DS! I don't even know why the mods keep the other threads going. Payola I reckon.

I believe that is a drawing of the constellation Triumphus Tigris (Latin?) found carved in a lodestone from the recently discovered site of the Ark on mount Ararat in eastern Turkey.

It is speculated (wildly so) that the pilot of the ark used the lodestone to guide the animals to safety by directing the ark toward what we now know to be north.

What we can know is that the pilot of the ark had this new motorcycle on his mind as he was thinking about how hardcore his situation was and how much he would have appreciated an adjustable seat, tall windscreen, upright riding position, steel frame and a large gas tank. I mean, how comfortable would that floating zoo have been after several weeks?

Good eye. The image is eerily similar to the carvings found in recently unearthed tombs Central America. Co-inky-dink? I think not.

Regarding your opinion on comfort regarding the the Truimph Tiger 800 DS, I have little doubt that 40 days and 40 mights in the saddle of the Trumphy would be like a picnic at Camp Snoopy compared to even two days aboard the ark.


BTW, did you know why the two snakes could not go forth and multiply like the other animals who left the ark?


They were adders.

It is not hard to see that this bike will rock the dual-sport world like nothing else on looks alone. From the above it seems to be proportionally correct apart from the large muffler, no doubt a direct requirement of the Euro noise nazi's but the aftermarket will soon fix that. Triumph have cleverly put all the right bits in all the right places so me-thinks that if the specs follow somewhere close to the following ideal, the'll sell ship loads of this bike.

The name: Tiger Cub. Perfect, rolls of the tongue well and evokes an emotion.
The engine. 800cc enlarged from the 675 via increased stroke. Perfect, lightweight long stroke motor will produce buckets of torque and a respectable top end. I'll guess it at 110hp @ 11,000rpm and 100Nm with 70% of that available from 3500rpm onwards.
The bike. With the Street Triple scalling in at about 167kg, my guess is the Tiger Cub (in either form, road or off-road) will tip the scales at around 175kg. This is similar to the KTM Super Enduro and super expensive BMW 1200GS HP2 but around 15kg lighter than the obvious opposition, the buzzy F800GS at 189kg.
Fuel range: Triumph claim that the bike will go the distance in touring mode so I am thinking that 20L can be squeezed in for a theoretical range of approximatly 400km. Par for course but nothing wrong with that.
Suspension: From the video teasers, pics and line drawings it appears Triumph have this well sorted. Likely travel will be around 220mm to 240mm both ends and the two piece seat (probably adjustable) will have you off the ground by about 840-850mm being a good compromise for most riders.
Frame and swingarm: Steel frame construction is the way to go for strength and ridgidity but might add an extra pound or two to the weight. The alloy swingarm looks stylish and will do the job. Hopefully the centre-stand is not an optional item but standard fitment.
Panniers: Hopefully a set of alloy boxes will be an option for the off-road version with the normal plastiky Givi type panniers for the roadie.

Hey, it cost nothin' to dream! Griz

If this bike cannot transport me back in time so I can make out with Christina Penna at summer camp again, I ain't interested.

You too? She was awesome.

It will. You will just have to adjust the dovin basal fields in a manner that allows the gravitrons to escape without burning the quantum foam.

It's in the manual between "Achieving World Peace" and "Ending Suffering."
