All new Tiger Sport 1200 in the works?
on: 24 May, 2021, 06:40:38 PM
With an all new Speed Triple 1200 had been presented in the end of January, it's pretty obvious to everyone that our beloved Tiger Sport 1050 will be discontinued anytime soon. Thing is, this all new engine for the Speed Triple 1200 would not be made to be offered in only one bike. So, here are some things that are in my mind right now. The 2019 Speed Triple was an wonderful machine, but with 141hp it was outgunned against the strongest naked bikes. Now, thou, it packs 180hp being one of the most powerful of them, being less powerful only than the Ducati Streetfighter V4, MV Agusta Brutale 1000RR and the much heavier Kawasaki ZH2. So, will this engine find it's way to an all new Tiger Sport 1200 to be a contender in power against the likes of Multistrada V4 and KTM 1290 Super Adventure? The Tiger Sport 1050 had 15hp less then the Speed Triple, so if this actually happens and we have this same difference or even 20hp gap, it would be a massive increase in power to 160-165hp. What are your thoughts?

I forgot to mention that this bike would also challenge the BMW S1000XR.

Bound to happen. But I suspect that it will then be a £15k bike with the option of electronic this and that. If I'm honest, one of the reasons I got my nice new TS is that I'd sooner have a sorted £10k bike with adequate poke than a £15k bike with more power than I could reasonably in most circumstances use.  :012:

Agreed.   The TS is very cheap in its class, precisely because it is a now a very old design.   Itís not really changed all that much since 2007.   Itís still a great bike but the development work would have been paid off years ago, so the price is low.
