I went to the Indianapolis bike show and checked out everything from all the manufacturers. I love the feel of Triumph's 1050 motor in a street oriented bike, but if they're not going to import the 1050 Tiger Sport, they're going to lose this sale and I'm going to buy a KTM SMT instead. I would think that with the increasing average age of riders in the US, that more practical street-oriented bikes would sell better. That being said, I trust Triumph well enough to know better than me if it is going to be profitable for them to import the new 1050 Tiger.
