If you want to catch a glimpse of new motorcycles from Triumph, head to Spain. For the umpteenth time, a new generation motorcycle has been spotted testing in Spain and this time, it is the new Triumph Tiger 800. From the spyshots, it is very clear that new Tiger is far from the finished product and will carry quite a few changes. But Tiger enthusiasts will notice that the looks and design are clearly inspired from the present gen Tiger XR.
The first change you notice is the lower ride height and the revised suspension bits. The travel of the forks up front seems to be reduced and there is a new linkage on the rear monoshock. So, one can say that this will be more of a road-biased sport-tourer than an out and out ADV. Also, the radiator unit is split into two, allowing the front wheel to sit as close to the radiator as possible.
Also, we believe that the exhaust pipes are slightly larger in diameter and are connected to a new crankcase, which looks to be taken from the new Street Triple that was launched recently. A slight bump in the cubic capacity and overall power is also expected with the engine displacing maybe 900cc and around 110 bhp.
The test motorcycle pictured here seems to a modified frame, adjustable bolt-on headstock, a longer swingarm, a new bolt-on sub-frame (might be for testing purposes) and a new linkage for the suspension at the rear. The yokes up front too seem to be adjustable. the Of course, all these modifications are crude, which will allow the development and engineering team to find the perfect spot where everything on the motorcycle works just perfectly.
The test motorcycle also seems to have an LED pilot lamp between the twin headlamps and mirrors which are the same as the new Street Triple. Another new feature were the footrest sliders, which enable the rider to change the seating geometry.
The front wheel looks to be a 19-inch unit which is also present in the current gen Tiger XR. But it is the rear wheel which caught our attention. It looks to be fatter from the current tyres on the Tiger XR, which is a 170 section. The make of the tyres on the test motorcycle is the Metzeler Tourance.
For sure the new Triuph Tiger 800 will not be revealed this year. We believe that it will be 2018 before it reaches the showrooms.(Photo Credits: Motorcyclenews.com)
