2011 Triumph Motorcycle
Usability is definitely the watchword for Triumph’s Tiger, powered by the bulletproof 1050cc inline three-cylinder engine found in both the Sprint GT and Speed Triple.
Previous revisions to the fuel mapping have cured it of its mild hesitation and owners now enjoy superb low-down torque and tons of smooth power.
Despite the tall stance, any off-road pretensions are gone, and the 17-inch wheels with sport tires, firm male-slider forks and rear shock,and highly capable radial brakes, confirm the Tiger’s role either as an agile commuter or capable long-distance tourer.
The SE comes with ABS brakes and hard bags.
