My guess is that it will be a Sporttouring model with 17 inch wheels, the new Euro5 Speed3 engine and more digital/electronic gimmicks. Power just below but near BMW S1000XR  :007:  Pricing will be between the new but too expensive 900 and the expected updated 1200+.
Now that's something i'd like to see  :169: might be in the market for a new bike next year depending on how much my 25% tax free lump sum from my pension is worth (if SWMBO hasn't got big ideas for it  :019: )
But will they really have 2 Tigers with similar sized engines  :187: Even if one is shaft driven...
Yam RD125 DX, Kwak GPZ305, Honda CB400T, 1983 Kwak GT550, Suzuki GSF650 Bandit, Tiger 1050SE .... got there in the end.

I hope you're right.  I finally got a chance to see the 900 in flesh a couple of weeks ago and it was kind of meh, pass.  Was not tempted at all for $17000.

It has to be...my KTM is 300cc bigger to match my inline 4, Triumph will have to do the same.

Most certainly is and a sure sign something else is in the pipe line.

For about the first time ever, Triumphs official Facebook page was advertising the Tiger Sport yesterday.   So not just the dealers flogging off stock or whatever, this push is right from the factory too.

Definitely something afoot...

I agree but (no intention of upsetting anyone) it's just old still pretty but old, it may well be better than it's competition but it doesn't have the kerb appeal,
I hope there is something new very close as I am currently bike less and if i'm honest I'm kinda hanging fire at the mo ???

The only bad point about the latest TS, for me is, it needs to be red, to be loved.  :300:
