That sounds like enough for a nice detailed comparative review of the two  :001:

Sorry people, I have been busy with other issues.
Such as servicing, repairing (fautly regulator) and doing some restauration work on my son's Sprint ST 1050. Almost finished now.
And some truly sad issues like attending funerals of close friends.
And some happy like being told a will be getting a second grandchild.
Be patient plse  :431:

You have asked me to compare my former Tiger Sport with my current Tiger 1200 XRx. Some extra
info might be handy. I have owned 4 1050 Triumphs: 2009 Triumph Tiger SE, 2017 Tiger Sport and a
2017 Speed Triple. I have always maintained a 2008 1050 Sprint ST my son still rides. Also 4 1215
Triumphs: 2012 Explorer Launch, 2013 Explorer, 2014 Trophy and currently the 1200 XRx.
Here we go!
Power:
2017 Tiger Sport 1050cc 126 PS/ 106 Nm @ 7.000 rpm wet weight approx. 245 kg 》1,94 kg/PS
2018 Tiger 1200 XRx 1215cc 141 PS/ 122 Nm @ 7.600 rpm wet weight approx. 267 kg 》1,89 kg/PS
Howeverrear wheel power output is approx. 115 PS for the TSport or 2,13 kg/PS and approx. 126 PS
for the T1200 or 2,12 kg/PS! The difference is marginal but more noticeable at speed because of a
much smaller frontal area of the TSport.
Drive train:
Pros for shaft drive are that it is almost maintenance free, well protected against dirt and moisture
and a much cleaner bike.
Pros for chain drive are less weight, friction, easy to alter gearing and it is cheaper to manufacture. A
well maintained modern chain can last up to 40.000km. A new quality set sprockets and chain goes
for approx. 160 180. Good advice is to change the faster wearing front sprocket at the expected
life of the chain.
So shaft or chain drive? More or less weight? More or less maintenance?
Handling:
T1200 Xrx has the advantage of TSAS, cornering ABS and 4 riding modes. Suspension preload is adjusted
automatically depending on load. Damping setting can be adjusted on the fly. Changing ride modes
also automatically adjusts preload (off road only) and damping.
TSport has (manually) fully adjustable front forks and rear shock adjustable for preload and rebound,
ABS (without cornering) and 3 riding modes. Preload and damping must be manually adjusted for
riding style, load and road condition.
The lighter weight of the TSport helps handling in all speed ranges. The T1200 is more comfortable. At
high speeds with luggage T1200 is less stable.
Brakes:
The combination of linked brakes , advanced cornering ABS and the better Brembos effectively
compensate for the extra weight and higher load carrying capacity of the T1200. Which in my
experience results in a much higher wear of discs and pads. In 22.500 km with T1200 the front discs and
pads were replaced twice under warranty. The rear disc once and currently on the 3rd set of rear pads.
TSports Nissin brakes are good. However the rear caliper needs a good cleaning on a regular basis
OEM Equipment:
Without doubt the T1200 has the advantage over the TSport with a TFT screen with 3 selectable
options, backlit switch gear, all LED lights including DLR, LED auto-off blinkers, standard hot grips,
standard main stand, electric adjustable screen, keyless system, 2 position rider seat height
Comfort:
T1200s ergonomics such seating position, knee angle are better. Screen offers more wind protection.
More room and comfort for pillion. It is the better long haul tourer overall.
Maintenance and costs:
5000 more from your bank account is needed for a new T1200 XRx and insurance is 15% more in my case.
Fuel consumption is 5% higher. T1200 has longer service intervals of 16.000/32.000 km but in price
each almost the same. TSport is easier to maintain.
Options accessories farkling:
For both the sky/wallet is the limit. Luggage, better screens, seats, exhaust and more. Triumph, GIVI,
SWMOTECH, R&G, Puig, Evotech, Powerbronze, Pyramid and more.
BOTTOM LINE:
Both are excellent, dependable and capable bikes. Each with character which differ slightly.
My issues with the T1200 are weight and excessive heat in slow moving traffic during high
ambient temps. But it still is the more comfortable long distance tourer.
My issues with the TSport were mostly that it could use an update. Such as the new 150 PS engine
of the 2020 Speed3, cornering ABS, TFT screen with latest switch gear. This would convince me to change
back to Tiger Sport.
