Triumph Tiger 1200


Triumph continues to churn out teasers for upcoming models, first showing us the half-fairing Triumph Speed Triple RR, then the street-focused Triumph Tiger Sport 660, and now the Triumph Tiger 1200.

Appearing to be an all-new model, the British marque is making big boasts about a reduced weight figure on the chassis, and added horsepower from the 1,200cc three-cylinder engine.

Triumph is the second motorcycle company to report a recall with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration concerning Brembo brake pad failures, as a bevy of motorcycle brands are expected to be recall motorcycles that use the Italian firm’s brake pads.

For those who don’t know, this wave of recalls stems from the friction material separating from the metal backing plate, often because of exposure to corrosive conditions.

We won’t rehash the technical details over and over again as the recalls come through (we are expecting several more), but you can read our initial post on Brembo brake pad issue, if you require a primer on the situation.
