Default 2018 Triumph Tiger 800 and Tiger 1200 unveiled

Both bikes get revised aero diffusers, backlit switchgear, new 5.0-inch TFT instrument cluster, adjustable windshield and full-LED lighting with integrated DRLs. The Tiger 800's handlebar has been moved further back by 10 mm, while the seat can also be raised or lowered by 20 mm on both the bikes. The bikes come equipped with new Showa adjustable suspension (on top-end variants), cruise control and six riding modes including a new ‘Off-road Pro’ mode.

The Tiger 1200 retains its tubular steel frame but gets a new swingarm and revised handlebar geometry. The bike is claimed to be up to 11 kg lighter than the earlier model. The Tiger 1200 gets additional features like adaptive cornering lights, keyless ignition, integrated braking system, a lighter Arrow exhaust, torque-assist clutch, hill hold, semi-active suspension, ABS, traction control among others.

Both bikes receive minor engine tweaks. The Tiger 800’s 800cc, liquid-cooled, in-line 3-cylinder engine produces 94 BHP @ 9,500 rpm and 79 Nm of torque @ 8,050 rpm and is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The Tiger 1200 is powered by a 1,215cc, liquid-cooled, in-line 3-cylinder engine which puts out 139 BHP @ 9,350 rpm and 122 Nm @ 7,600 rpm. It is paired with a 6-speed transmission as well and features ride-by-wire.

The Tigers certainly seem to have moved the game on. I hope the TFT screen comes through on as many variants as possible (the XRX at least which is the one I like the most personally). Saw it on the Triple RS and it looks gorgeous.

Come 2018 I think the ADV segment is going to REALLY heat up. All new Tiger range, new middle weight BMW GSs and lower down the order perhaps the VStrom to take the Versys head on.

Oh man .... When I saw this video I could only feel one emotion!! "Bas kar pagle - ab rulayega kya" I have not lusted after any automobile in the longest time as much as I have recently for the Tigers and GSs.

On a more serious note, Schumi from Overdrive had a nice snippet of an interview with the Triumph folks at EICMA principally around the new Tigers.
I can't find it anywhere now but maybe its on his twitter handle or FB page.

In the entire hoopla around the Tigers many people missed that Triumph also revealed its Street Triple-powered Moto2 race bike prototype - quite a stunning machine in itself.
