The 2010 Triumph Tiger is powered by a 1050cc three-cylinder engine capable of developing 113 hp at 9,400 rpm and 74 ft. lbs. of torque at 6,250 rpm through a six-speed transmission.
An adjustable sport suspension and 120 front/180 rear sport tires mounted on 17-inch wheels are combined with powerful Nissin brakes for a better handling.
Triumph’s Antilock Braking System has been carefully designed to boost control under hard braking, working on both wheels independently. This system operates at 100 calculations per second to sense the precise moment the wheel is about to lock up, then preventing it from doing so.
"The Tiger is one of the most resourceful bikes on the market, so it's not too surprising that the locking hard bags were one of the most popular options," Jim Callahan, North American Marketing Manager for Triumph Motorcycles, said in a release. "Because of that demand, Triumph's making the locking hard bags standard equipment for all 2010 Tigers."
According to the carmaker, the 2010 Triumph Tiger is available with or without ABS in Phantom Black and Fusion White for an MSRP starting at $11,999.
The American division of Triumph, however, is also offering a special edition of the Tiger, that comes fitted with ABS as a standard feature and with a new matte graphite and matte black two-tone paint scheme with color-matched saddle bags and hand guards. The Triumph Tiger SE has a MSRP starting at $13,399.
