Interesting that there's yet to be a pic showing the shaft drive...

Someone has said they think an XC version is planned, but I haven't heard anything official. I don't think it is a slam dunk there will be one - Triumph may reason there is not sufficient demand for a more-offroad-oriented version of the 1200, figuring that anyone how wants this would probably prefer the lighter-weight and smaller size of the 800 anyway.

The style/shape is growing on me.

Spoke to a Triumph (United Kingdom) dealer yesterday, the new Triumph 1200cc will be shown at the Milan bike show next week, then shown at the 'NEC' bike show in Birmingham (UK).


Still no exact price/bhp/fuel tank capacity figures as yet, but should be out soon I'm sure.

Ha ha ha ha,for all the abuse i suffered from clueless morons on this sight
about the 800 frame.Somebody has been paying attention,and fitted bolt
on rear footpegs.I never got my subframe though,but it's a start.As an adventure
bike,having fixed footpegs would stop me buying one.I'd much prefer a Trumpet
over a Beemer as i'm not a fan off Rotax(read all the Rotax disasters on here!).
So now you have the 1200 sorted,you could maybe back track and sort the 800!
Only 20 pages in to a couple going from Canada - Argentina,they've been on their
side countless times-my footrest reason!(Oh,and 2 x shagged Rotax engines by
Peru!).

The gas tank looks like a crushed beer can and the whole front end looks like it's meant to appeal to 12 year old fans of The Transformers. Michael Bay should be proud. Or maybe he should sue.

I want one. I'll try not to look down.

I read yesterday that spoked wheels will be an option, and that the 1200 under-went the same off-tarmac testing as the 800XC.

Yes, those are useful at this early stage. Any chance you could do that with the 1200 and Tiger 800 roadie?

Why haven't we heard anything about the new Trophy model that was developed alongside the Tiger?

Which is I guess conformation that it will come to these shores.
