The perfect all-rounder? Tackles the urban jungle with aplomb, carves the twisties with ease. Looking for adventure? Get there in style and have fun on the way, one up or two.

With its commanding riding position, muscular 1,050cc triple engine, powerful brakes and high specification sporty chassis making for real fun on the twisties and composure in the traffic. Want one bike for all your needs? Tiger 1050

 

An all-rounder. The perfect all-rounder, we think. The Tiger is equally at home in the urban jungle as it is prowling on the open road.

The tall riding position gives a commanding view, making passing through rush hour traffic easy. Hit the highway and you will revel in the muscular 1050cc triple which, combined with powerful brakes and a high-specification sporty chassis, make carving through the twisties a real pleasure. And for the long haul the ergonomically designed seat with screen and fairing ensures a comfortable ride regardless of distance. A 5.2 gallon fuel tank, comprehensive instrumentation and optional ABS add to the practicality.

As with all Triumphs, a wide range of official accessories are available, allowing owners to tailor the Tiger to meet their specific needs. These range from practical items such as color matched luggage, heated grips and touring seats, to exquisitely crafted special parts allowing you to create an truly individual look.


Triumph Tiger 1050

A truly versatile motorcycle, the Triumph Tiger 1050 is a rare creature, one that is equally at home
in the urban jungle or wide open prairies.

It is this ability to do all things equally well that has made the Tiger 1050 one of Triumph’s best selling
models in recent years and given it a huge following around the world.

Sit astride the Tiger 1050 and you will understand just why so many year-round riders choose one
as their daily ride. The tall (835mm) riding position gives the rider a commanding view over the traffic,
with the well appointed saddle facilitating comfortable day-long riding.

The Tiger 1050fs effortless power comes from a 115PS version of Triumph’s legendary 1050cc triple
which delivers 98Nm of torque at just 6250rpm.

But while the Tiger 1050 is perfectly at home on the commute and the open highway, it is on twisting
roads where it really excels.

Triumph has endowed the Tiger 1050 with a chassis that would not be out of place on a sports bike.
The aluminium twin spar frame features a braced aluminium swingarm and light 17h alloy wheels
fitted with sporting road tyres. The 43mm inverted front forks are fully adjustable for preload, rebound
and compression damping, with the rear monoshock unit also adjustable for preload and rebound.

Braking power comes from twin four-piston radial calipers gripping 320mm front brakes.

Combined with the commanding riding position and wide handlebars, the Tiger 1050fs chassis and
engine combination adds up to a motorcycle that inspires confidence and is deceptively easy to ride
quickly. With a fuel capacity of 20 litres, the Tiger 1050 is capable of covering over 200 miles between fuel stops. The Tiger 1050 is available in two metallic colours, Phantom Black and Crystal White.

A number of official Triumph accessories are available for the Tiger 1050. Most popular are the
colour-matched hard luggage, heated grips and gel touring seats, confirming the Tiger 1050fs place
as an all-round workhorse.

A higher-specification Tiger 1050SE is also available. It features ABS brakes as standard, along with
panniers (giving a capacity of 43 litres), centre stand, gel seat and handguards. The Tiger 1050SE
also comes in two distinctive colour schemes: Intense Orange and a two-tone Matt Graphite and
Matt Black combination.

2011 Triumph Tiger 1050 ABS Features and Benefits

Tiger 1050 – Superbly competent bike.

One up scratching for fun. Two up adventures. Short or long haul. Commute or holiday. The Tiger 1050 does it all.

Engine

The Tiger’s engine delivers power and ear to ear grins. 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 115PS (113bhp) is delivered at 9400rpm, with 100Nm (74ft.lbf) torque at 6250rpm.


Seat

The comfortable, spacious seat and relaxed rider and pillion 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 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.
