This could make the Adventure riding group salivate in anticiaption. Triumph will release a long-rumoured smaller version of its 1050 Tiger. Originally thought to be a 650, it appears it will be 800cc's and they are aiming squarely at BMW's 800GS.
"Two versions - "street" and "off-road". There's not much information about the bike yet, but Triumph sources tell us both bikes will use an 800 cc version of the triple engine, going head to head with the BMW F 800 GS."
