It's not.
It won't be, but it seems some people can't get past 1200cc and shaft drive. Too much to process.
Welcome to the Super Tenere experience.

Looks like Triumph are ramping up the "leaks" again.

Cheers

Welcome to the Super Tenere experience.
Totally agree with you. I'm kind off tired of every new Adventure bike that comes out being compared to BMW GS .It's like everything that has two wheels on it, it's a copy of GS according to some "experts" . If you ask me neither S10, neither Multistrada, neither new Tiger1200 has anything to do with GS except the class that they're in -ADVENTURE bikes.Period...

2. Are they likely to split the range like the 800s (1200/1200XC)? I reckon that Triumph won't bother to do this whilst they have the 800XC in the range
3. Despite what a Triumph dealer insisted to me recently, I cannot see them keeping the 1050 in the line-up.

Probably,...only if the Tiger 1050 remains 'mostly tar road' & the 1200 is more serious/dirtier
My Dealer recently tried to tell me there is NO 1200! "RUMORS RUMORS...LIES & RUMORS" he said

Spokes

I was also told today that the new 1200 will not come with spokes, if true can't help thinking thats a big mistake.

If it's spokes ya want........ go for the 800 XC. The 800 XC is better suited for the off road riding where the sdvantage goes to spoke wheels.

The 1200 Tiger Moves Closer to Reality

Heard from a reliable Euro source ("Deep Throat" passed it along) that we could be getting official Triumph pre-release materials as early as next month.

Sounds like they'll be releasing the new 1200 Tiger AND 1200 Trophy at the same time.

I don't expect the final version of the Tiger 1200 to look like the "spy shot" below and am hoping it'll be sporting a 9 gallon tank like the new BMW GS Adventure.

I heard (from a certain Triumph dealer in the UK who has actually seen the bike) that the fuel tank will be "at least 21 litres" and the price point in the UK will be "Around 10K".

Milan EICMA is the 8th of November. I'm guessing it'll be there. 10K would be a good base price point.

Tank will needs to be at least 25L if it's going to have a good range. 21 L before fuel light whould be okay.

The fuel light on the 800 comes on far to early

This is the bike I've been waiting to see but I already figured we would'nt learn anything new untill sometime in Nov.
I'm hoping the seat height can be as low as 32' if adjustable, I've already owned a 955i so I know the engine will be fantastic.

I really liked the 800 tiger but want something a little bigger for a mostly two up bike , I never really cared for the new 1050 with the stink bug ass end.
