Adds weight to the rumour of a new Speed Triple based on the 1200cc motor coming at the end of year..and it would appear that the Tiger Sport moniker will be passed along to the next derivative.
I just can't see them using the 1200 from the Explorer - it's HUGE. Wouldn't a new generation 1000 which can be spread across a sport range seem more likely (well, not likely. What do I know about Triumph product roadmaps - that's right, nothing).

The current 1200? :shudder
