Last week our column listed about two motorcycles of Triumph, the Rocket III Roadster and the Rocket III Touring. Here comes the other stuff relating to the British best bi-wheeler seller that the consortium unveiled its latest version of the Tiger 1050 Sport. The disclosure took place at the 2013 European Motor Show Brussels, in Brussels, Belgium, which is organized by FEBIAC (Fédération Belge des Industries de l'Automobile et du Cycle (Belgium)) and scheduled by OICA (Organisation Internationale des Constructeurs d'Automobiles).
The all new 2013 Triumph Tiger 1050 Sport now looks even leaner and better. The Tiger 1050 Sport is precisely an evolved version or a next level of its sibling, the Tiger 1050. However, the bike is more powerful and sportier than its brother. The Tiger 1050 Sport is a real value for money machine to have a comfortable driving more than being an all-rounder that spells out sportiness, agility, and stability.
The bike comes with the same 1050 cc, Liquid-cooled, 12 valve, DOHC, in-line 3-cylinder engine. Thanks to the new exhaust and upgraded intake system that have enabled the Triumph engineers to deliver an additional 10 PS of power and 6 Nm of torque while boosting the output across the full range of revolutions. That is, it results in a maximum power of 125 PS @ 9400 rpm and a maximum torque of 104 Nm @ 4300 rpm. Moreover, the refreshed gearbox increases manoeuvrability by slicker, faster and trouble free gear transmissions. Additionally, the new engine is more dynamic, punchy and responsive more power. The new exhaust and fuel injection technology cost to increase the fuel efficiency of the bike by 7%.
Triumph has also considered a superior handling. Its frame is crafted on Aluminium beam twin-spar. It ensures rigidity and stability to the bi-wheeler and a payload up to 220 kg. Now the ABS technology is standard for the machine. This secures the drive even at the toughest terrains. Adventure motor-machines usually give less importance to comforts. Here, Triumph wins hearts by promising the most well-heeled ride on an adventure two wheeler. The UK giant has altered the seat to make it narrower to soothe both rider's and pillion's drive. To enrich better manoeuvrability, the seat and handle has been lowered.
In order to appeal a sportbike mellowness, newly designed single-sided swing-arm, styled side panels, tail unit, screen, lightweight reflector type headlights with improved lighting performance, sculptured footrests, coloured seat stitching, aluminium pannier mounts, fork yokes and engine side casings have been moulded out. The luggage space of the motorcycle has been doubled to store 10 kg materials in both panniers. The 31 litres left side pannier offers to store a full face helmet, whereas the right side 24 litres pannier is shaped around the silencer.
The 2013 Triumph Tiger 1050 Sport is available in Crystal White and Diablo Red colors. Unfortunately, Triumph hasn't disclosed the official price of the new version. The bike is expected to be launched by March.
The new version of the Tiger Sport is more powerful, fuel efficient, stable, rigid and stylish.
