A truly versatile motorcycle, the Triumph Tiger
1050 is a rare creature, one that is equally at home
in the urban jungle or wide open prairies.
It is this ability to do all things equally well
that has made the Tiger 1050 one of Triumph’s
models in recent years and given it a huge following
around the world.
Sit astride the Tiger 1050 and you will understand
just why so many year-round riders choose one
as their daily ride. The tall (835mm) riding position
gives the rider a commanding view over the traffic,
with the well appointed saddle facilitating comfortable
The Tiger 1050’s effortless power comes from
a 115PS version of Triumph’s legendary 1050cc
which delivers 98Nm of torque at just 6250rpm.
But while the Tiger 1050 is perfectly at home on
the commute and the open highway, it is on twisting
roads where it really excels.
Triumph has endowed the Tiger 1050 with a chassis
that would not be out of place on a sports bike.
The aluminium twin spar frame features a braced aluminium
swingarm and light 17” alloy wheels
fitted with sporting road tyres. The 43mm inverted
front forks are fully adjustable for preload, rebound
and compression damping, with the rear monoshock unit
also adjustable for preload and rebound.
Braking power comes from twin four-piston radial calipers
gripping 320mm front brakes.
Combined with the commanding riding position and
wide handlebars, the Tiger 1050’s chassis and
engine combination adds up to a motorcycle that inspires
confidence and is deceptively easy to ride
quickly. With a fuel capacity of 20 litres, the Tiger
1050 is capable of covering over 200 miles between
fuel stops. The Tiger 1050 is available in two metallic
colours, Phantom Black and Crystal White.
A number of official Triumph accessories are available
for the Tiger 1050. Most popular are the
colour-matched hard luggage, heated grips and gel
touring seats, confirming the Tiger 1050’s place
as an all-round workhorse.
A higher-specification Tiger 1050SE is also available.
It features ABS brakes as standard, along with
panniers (giving a capacity of 43 litres), centre
stand, gel seat and handguards. The Tiger 1050SE
also comes in two distinctive colour schemes: Intense
Orange and a two-tone Matt Graphite and
Matt Black combination.
