Tiger 1200 will look similar to the Tiger 800

FOREIGN websites are gossiping about a new 1200cc Triumph Tiger, dubbed the Tiger Explorer.

The bike is set to be revealed to the world's press at the EICMA show in Milan in November and later at the NEC motorcycle show.

Taking its styling from the firm's popular Tiger 800, the new Tiger Explorer's 1200cc engine allegedly produces 135bhp and will supercede the current Tiger 1050. It's expected to be on sale in the UK very early in 2012.

I hope they *finally* get with the program, and put an hydraulic clutch on the new bike.

There is nothing wrong with a cable clutch... Less maintenance on a cable clutch line anyways...

I want One as long as it is Shaft drive. Only reason I am on my second GS. The lates one I owe, a 2011 model is a piece of shit, BMW needs good competition and I will support that opposition anayday.

I have always fancied the 3 pod engines of Triumph, where can I get more gen about this Bike ?
