Triumph Tiger 1200 launch confirmed for December

Triumph doesn’t have an official factory presence at EICMA, but the chaps at Hinkley dropped a new YouTube video yesterday, just to remind you that the new Tiger 1200 adventure bike is coming soon.

Or at least, it’ll be revealed soon—Triumph says this teaser campaign is supposed to finally end on December 7. When it arrives, it will have a “T-plane” three-cylinder engine, just like the Tiger 900 did. It’s supposed to be lighter and better-handling than the previous flagship Tiger, and better-suited for offroad. Of course, the real proof of all that will be the field tests, which we expect we’ll see starting this winter.
