Default Spied testing: 2020 Triumph Tiger 800

All-new Triumph Tiger 800 has been caught testing by MCN, and it looks like Triumph is giving it's bestseller a serious overhaul!

Rumoured to be an 887cc engine (up from the current 765cc), producing power upwards of 100bhp.

Thankfully, the rear end has a subframe clearly visible! This was one of the major complaints in the existing Tiger 800, with heavy repair bills likely even in the case of minor falls.

The suspension, as per MCN - is now Showa instead of the earlier WP setup. The bike also appears much slimmer to compensate for the seat height concerns.

It's lost a lot of bulk.

Almost looks midway between a Tenere 700 and the Africa Twin.

Looks like they are shedding the top heavy nature. Has a new type frame, likely a 900cc engine and all new Dashboard. Notice how the rear pegs are bolted and not welded like the current. Competition from the KTM has started to hit.

NA dealers confirm that they will announce it by Dec with deliveries starting late Spring. Waiting to see how it turns out.
