The official "I want the Tiger Sport in the U.S." whine thread

The title says it all; I hoping if enough people whine for it, I can have a Tiger sport too!

I had wanted one when they announced it. Ended up buying a roadie Tiger 800 instead.

I need to test drive a roadie, but I'm waiting to next year to make a decision - hoping that the Sport will be a 2014 model!

I would love a bike like that from Triumph, especially if they used the Tiger 800 engine and gave it decent passenger ergos.

I'd really like a sport/standard version of the Tiger 800 roadie.

Make the XC a little more dirt and turn the Roadie into this and I'd swap my 13 for it.

That would make a lot of sense.

How does the Sport differ from the standard 1050?

In a nutshell, new single sided swingarm, +10hp, 7% better fuel economy, revised suspension, new reflector headlights, new subframe (lower), new exhaust & fairings.

I took all 3 New Tigers (800 Roadie & XC and 1200) out before buying my 800 Roadie. Since I don't do anything offroad (yet), the 800XC wasn't worth it to me and I liked the quicker turn in of the Roadie.

For as massive as the 1200 is, it carried it's weight well, but was far too big for the typical riding I do and is $5-6k more, so I really couldn't justify it.

Liked them all, don't have the budget or garage space for all of them though...
