Only Triumph’s specialist chassis development teams know the secret of handling perfection. With the all-new Tiger 1200, seen here in final prototype testing, the brief was simple: only the best will do. Designed to be the world’s most compact, agile and maneuverable large capacity adventure motorcycle, the Tiger 1200 will introduce a genuine revolution in capability, control and feel.

The incredible result of thousands of hours of intensive real-world riding and development, the Tiger 1200 will feature a transformation in rider ergonomics and handling performance, with a new level of specification, plus exciting innovations in technology, engineering and design.

Tuned for maximum road and off-road capability, no matter where, when or how you ride, supreme rider feedback will be assured, and big mileage comfort guaranteed.


Why can’t you have it all? We believe there is such a thing as the perfect all road motorcycle engine. The new Tiger 1200 official prototype testing showcases Triumph’s signature T-Plane triple advantage for the first time in the large capacity adventure world.

Delivering more power and character than its closest competition, the only other shaft driven bike in the class, the new 1200 engine brings all of the low down torque delivery of a twin, married to the top end punch and incredible soundtrack that only the Triumph triple delivers.

Beautifully smooth and refined, with incredible response and tractability, equally perfect for kicking up the dirt, sweeping through the corners, or crossing continents in style.


The all-new Tiger 1200 transformation is on its way. The all-new Tiger 1200 has now reached its exciting final stages of testing.

The word ‘transformation’ simply doesn’t do it justice. Designed to deliver the new ultimate large capacity adventure ride, the incredible Tiger 1200 will bring every advantage in one all-new motorcycle family. Now significantly lighter than its closest competition, with an astonishing transformation in weight, the new 1200 will combine the triple powered engine advantage with a new dimension in class-leading agility, control and handling.


The most successful motocross racer of all time, Ricky Carmichael, has put the new Tiger 1200 official testing prototype through its paces in an exclusive first ride. See what he thinks of this all-new machine.
