TRIUMPH'S TIGER 800 ADVENTURE BIKES!
The ranks of adventure bikes continue to swell, with British brand Triumph finally pulling the wraps off its long-rumoured Tiger 800 adventure bike.
Although the bikes won't be officially unveiled for another month, just released photos indicate there will be two models on offer: the Tiger 800 and Tiger 800 XC (pictured).
Both bikes will be powered by Triumph's potent triple-cylinder engine, with the 800 running alloy wheels with a 19-inch hoop up front, while the 800 XC scores spoked wheels with a more off-road ready 21-incher at the front. USD forks are fitted to both models, mated with trellis-design tubular frames.
Clearly aimed at BMW's F 800 GS, the new Tigers certainly look set to shake things up in the mid-size multi-cylinder adventure bike market.
Stay tuned for more info and local Aussie release details in coming weeks.
