Triumph Tiger 1050 Sport


Although the Triumph Tiger 800 and Triumph Tiger 1200 models are doing well in the market, the British brand from Hinckley doesn’t seem ready to kill the Triumph Tiger 1050, and has instead revised the model for the 2013 model year. Adding 10hp to the three-cylinder motor (123 hp & 76.7 lbs•ft of torque at the crank now), the renamed Triumph Tiger Sport features a new single-sided swingarm, a slimmer subframe, a revised suspension and geometry, along with redesigned fairings and wheels. With the Triumph Tiger Sport being a decidedly a sport-touring model with 17″ wheels, it should steer clear of its 800cc and 1200cc brethern in their more “adventure” uses.
