2008 Triumph Tiger

It commutes. It tours. It scratches.

The Tiger, with its mile-munching ability and sheer dependability, has won a legion of fans the world over. It lives in a genuinely different space to other bikes in its class, excelling in three distinct areas – it scratches; it tours and it commutes. While its sharp lines and performance spec make the Tiger’s sporting credentials clear from a glance, its stunning looks hide a practical streak. Two-up, you’ve got a bike that comfortably devours miles of tarmac thanks to the relaxed riding position, spacious seat, supple suspension and tractable torquey engine. Back in the city the commanding view really comes into its own, while the wide bars make tight manoeuvres child’s play.

An ABS version of the Tiger is also available.

The Urban Sports Range – The 675cc and 1050cc triple engines that power Triumph’s stunning sports bikes are renowned for their strength and flexibility from tickover to redline. The range includes Streetfighters, Supersports, Adventure Sports and Sports Touring bikes all with unique character, real world performance and a distinctive triple roar.

 

FEATURES:

Engine
The Tiger’s engine delivers power and ear to ear grins. Nothing sounds like a triple so there’s no confusing a Tiger with the whine of an anonymous four. The amazing 1050cc, fuel-injected, three cylinder engine, known for its addictive character, has plenty of torque and impressive amounts of horsepower, with ample reserves of both for those two-up fully laden tours. Peak power of 114bhp is delivered at 9400rpm, with 74ft.lbf torque at 6250rpm

Seat
The comfortable, spacious seat and relaxed rider and passenger ergonomics mean you’ll arrive fresh even at the end of the longest day.

Handlebars
High, wide bars give a comfortable riding position and excellent control at all speeds, from urban manoeuvring to motorway cruising.

Suspension
The 43mm upside down fully adjustable forks and remote spring preload and rebound damping adjustable rear shock keeps the ride comfortable on the worst of roads and gives excellent control when the pace picks up.

Screen
The Tiger screen gives great wind protection for those long journeys without obscuring your view around town.

ABS
Triumph’s Antilock Braking System has been carefully designed to boost control under hard braking, working on both wheels independently. This unobtrusive system retains all the sensations of riding, operating at 100 calculations per second to sense the precise moment the wheel is about to lock up, then preventing it from doing so. The system has been specifically tailored to the Tiger, with painstaking calibration over many months to ensure optimum braking performance.
