2011 Triumph Tiger 1050 Revealed

British motorcycle Triumph has refreshed the entire Tiger range for 2011, and after releasing the Tiger 800 and 800XC machines, it has now also detailed the Tiger 1050 model. Described as a versatile motorcycle, the Triumph 1050 comes with a tall (835mm/32.87inch) riding position that offers an enhanced view over the traffic and a comfortable riding position.

“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,” a company statement reads. “It is this ability to do all things equally well that has made the Tiger 1050 one of Triumph’s best selling models in recent years and given it a huge following around the world.”

Power comes from a 115PS version of Triumph’s 1050cc triple engine which delivers 98Nm (72.3 lb.ft.) of torque at just 6250rpm. The aluminium twin spar frame features a braced aluminium swingarm and light 17-inch alloy wheels fitted with sporting road tires.

In addition to that, 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.

With a fuel capacity of 20 litres (5.3 gallons), the Tiger 1050 is capable of covering over 200 miles (322km) between fuel stops. The Tiger 1050 is available in two metallic colors, Phantom Black and Crystal White. Available accessories include color-matched hard luggage, heated grips and gel touring seats,

The higher-spec version adds ABS, panniers, centre stand, gel seat and handguards as standard features. The Tiger 1050SE also comes in two distinctive colour schemes: Intense Orange and a two-tone Matt Graphite and Matt Black combination.
