Now, Triumph may be still many months away from lifting the camo off its new Tiger 1200. But it’s clear that the British brand is doing more than just fine-tuning this machine.
Just recently, a member of illustrous webmazine Rideapart happened upon yet another heavily camouflaged prototype of Triumph’s all-new adventure Sportster.
There’s doubt spy shots of the alleged Triumph Tiger 1200. That we’ve seen up this point have left us anticipating the arrival of the eventual production model.
And we don’t think we’re alone in that. The British marque also has something in mind, promising the “biggest-ever leap in capability. And technology for its next generation of adventure motorcycles”.
There seems to be a pattern with how Hinckley rolls out its new bikes. You know, just for fun. And that was no different with the Triumph Tiger 1200 model.
Now out testing in what looks like showroom-spec (but disguised) form. The light and powerful Touring machine can finally stop teasing everyone and make its way onto and streets around the world.
The new Triumph Tiger 1200, the next generation of the successful Adventure Touring, range from the Hicknley marque.
In this latest batch of spy shots.The new model is seen with a little more colour than before and no camouflage on any of its vital bodywork.
What do we anticipate?
To analyze, we have seen the same 1,160cc inline-triple powerplant in Triple 1200 RS. And which will now support the new Tiger 1200.
Remember, both these machines will have different performance specs. Speed Triple 1200 RS calibrates to 178 hp, while if we are right, the new Tiger 1200 will make 140 hp.
While we can’t see very much about the engine in this shot. It’s clear that there’s long-distance luggage on this bike, which could mean that this Tiger was being tested in an area passing on the highway.
Further, there are rumours that the new Tiger 1200 may weigh 250 kgs on curb scale.
Giving the new Tiger 1200 a full-scale electronic package will also be in Triumphs mind, having Bluetooth connectivity, traction, cornering ABS and more.
If all goes well, we may see the new Triumph Tiger 1200 before EICMA and will arrive with the dealers at the start of 2022.
