I am in the market for exactly this kind of bike and was disappointed with the only options from triumph being the explorer and xc. How could the "normal" tiger be gone!? So this bike is the best news yet, I just wonder when the bike makes it to the states so i can get my arse on it!

It's going to be an interesting year... New DL1000 and new Tiger!

Got to be a better road bike than the previous 1050 I'd imagine, but I doubt it will be as light or have the front end feel of the Multistrada. That triple is a peach of a motor though (if a little top heavy feeling).

Definitely going to be trying one. And I bet list price is close to 14k, so 16K on the road.

Kind of like owning a Hummer, it can go anywhere but never leaves the pavement. I think it looks like a killer Trumpy! Here is to hoping it comes stateside eventually so I can check it out. Please bring it to the US Triumph........
For me it's like an up to date DL1000 which is a good thing. Lets hope they keep the price reasonable.

New Teegray...

"Warmed over aesthetics" ???

Really?
It looks like they have made "alot" more changes than cosmetic. Rake and trail, longer wheel base, new wheels, motor enhancement, redesigned airbox, redesigned subframe, redesigned body plastics (seat, and under) new pegs, new lights, new swingarm, upgraded suspension, upgraded transmission, new modified seat, switchable abs, handlebar scroll function, more power, better mileage,... you guys read the same bits I did yes?

Exactly what we did (or wanted to do) to our early 1050's and more (well some of us anyway). It looks fantastic especially slimming the side tank area and making air scoops which feed the new air box I would guess.

"I wish it was more dirt oriented".... Guess the 1200, 800's won't fit the bill? News flash: this will go anywhere you want it to if you have the skills to get it there! Youtube Tiger 1050 in the Alps. This guy is flying up a rocky 2 track in stock trim. Don't know if you ever saw the "Explorer" edition that the cool dealer in Marin put together. If someone wants to give me an email address i will send the pix to you to post up here.

Like JN I sold mine and leaning hard on the new Streety R'. I will throw the Twisted Throttle book at it. Should turn out to be a much lighter, nimbler all rounder save tank capacity. Saw the STR in person yesterday at Cal Moto in Grey. Didn't know if I cared for it until seeing in person . Wow...

According to my dealer here close to the US HQ, there isn't going to be a US Tiger Sport. He told me that it's a Europe only model. Me not happy.

I haven't kept up w/the details on this bike since I sold my '07 but the Sport looks interesting. If they've lightened it up, slimmed it up, and firmed it up, I'd be very interested. 517# is too heavy for what I'm looking for. I'd really like a S3 w/some wind protection and a little more suspension travel. A Speed Tiger, if you will...Good looking bike. I'll have to keep an eye on it.

Now.......I'm thinking I'll hold onto it for another year and see what happens. I'm wanting something sportier, but kept going back and forth with the Sprint and N1k, weighing pros and cons.

Hmmm.
My 07 Sprint is my favorite road bike of all time. I would still have her if the wife would have approved of two horses in the stable.

And obviously by my sig I didn't hold off. I saw a 15th Anniversary Edition 2010 Speed Triple that I couldn't live without. And as much as I love it, it's for sale. I miss my sport-tourer with hard luggage but most of all my 8 year old started riding with me last year and loves it. But with the Speed Triple, there's nothing for him to hold onto/lean against. So I'll get something that fits between my true desires - a comfortable sportbike that is a comfy tourer and a bike for him.

I've looked a few Sprints (ST's) here locally, but gotta unload the S3 first.

Sorry, fellas... "Europe only".. that's from two separate Triumph dealers who were asked yesterday if the bike was coming here.

Too bad.. it has just enough updates to push me to trade my '10 Tiger, which is the best all around bike I've ever owned.

Hopefully it will make its way here in a couple of years...
