Haven't ridden it - but saw one / sat on one the other day. Very nice.
Anybody heard any news if this bike is coming stateside?
This bike sounds great..
Here is a cool video of one cruising with a Yamaha R1:
From what I last remember reading, this is another bike that won't be seen in the US. I think Canada might get it, but like the Versys 1000, us 'mericans won't be seeing it.
Pitty too, because they are both bikes I was interested in checking out.
Here's a video of one at a dealer in Europe:
Has anybody heard any rumors of this coming stateside in 2014? I heard that Triumph is going to release their slate of new bikes for 2014 in August-September, but I wasn't sure if that was true or conjecture.
I was so hoping it would come, but now I kinda don't since ill be burning more money since I couldn't hold off and just bought a Sprint!
Locust Grove, GA
07 Sprint ABS
57 Cushman Eagle
This thread needs more pics!
Here we go:
It looks pretty cool I think. Nice update. How come we're not getting it in the States? Did the previous model not do well?
This 1050 Sport is a fantastic bike but too much power for me ...:eek1 maybe someday Triumph will build a 675 Tiger XC and a 675 SM for people that love that wonderful Street Triple Motor...Tuned for low end torque and around 400 lbs. ...Please Triumph...Baby Tiger 675 ...Please
Just got back an email from someone on the inside. It looks like the Triumph Tiger Sport will not be coming state side.
Survey said people were not interested in it.
No interest in the USA? Yeah we need another bike that is top heavy, and built for someone 6'2" with a 34" inseam. Another pretend we are going off road some day bike. No I can't imagine anyone wants a standard, 1050 triple with a single sided swingarm and manageable maybe even comfortable ergo's and spec'd with superlative brakes and suspension. (oh man, put a belt drive on it!!!)
I would love to own a Triumph triple. Sadly I never will.
But the surveys are probably right. We are a country known for obesity and handlebars two feet higher than your head! Not sure how obesity comes into play but I feel somehow it is related.:huh
The sport would have been the ONLY bike I would go to a dealer and plop down $MSRP.
Sorry mate - been too busy looking at used Trophys. Hate to twist the knife - but the T.Sport looks lovely close up. Nice pearlescent shimmer to the white scheme..
Any chance they may still bring the 1050 tiger sport to the USA.?
I had a 07 tiger ....man I miss that motor!
They are going to say they won't bring it to the USA until they announce they will bring it. I'm betting it's on the table but they haven't made the decision yet.
Me too. I loved that motor so much, I traded it for a Speed Triple and now have a Sprint.
I'd like to say I'd dump the Sprint in a heartbeat if they brought over the Sport. But at the conversion from what it sells for overseas (9995 BP if I remember right), it would be $15k. Obviously they wouldn't sell it for the same as the Explorer, but whatever the price is would be without sidecases, which that bike should come standard with.
Having done 2000 miles now in 2 months on my new TS I've come to the conclusion that it's the best bike I've ever owned and the second best I've ridden (Petronas FP1 still tops the list). I can use it for every situation near or far, in all weathers and complements whatever mood I'm in.
I've also come to the conclusion that I prefer bikes that have minimal electronic 'toys' and I like to make all the decisions myself whilst I'm riding. I don't need different fuel maps, active suspension, nor traction control.
I just need a bike that is well set-up, comfortable, has reasonable power and good torque spread, likes to rev and sounds fantastic with stonking brakes and decent range.
Although the Tiger is getting on a bit now, I think Triumph have pulled a master-stroke with the Sport, making it better in all the right areas, is cracking value for money and has bucked the currently trend of 'more must be more'.
Top tip - the Arrow exhaust is an absolute must-have.
Good stuff. Any issues? How's the stock screen working out?
I'm using a larger touring screen.
No issues whatsoever!
A bike I'd like to own (I loved my very modified Tiger 1050).
Pics would be nice
