The differences between the Triumph Tiger 1200 XCA, the BMW R1200 GS Adventure, and the KTM 1290 Super Adventure R.
On November 7, Triumph will release an updated big-bore Tiger, and probably a restyled version of the 800 platform as well.
Steve makes the transition from KLR to Tiger.
New XC, XR models focus on dirt, pavement use respectively.
Transport Canada issues recalls on several models.
Will our tester end up, as threatened, cashing in his RRSPs to buy a new three-cylinder from Hinckley?
Big-bore dual-sports, I love ‘em. If there ever was a type of bike that you could say is made for Canada, it’s the big dualies.
Okay, so in part one we covered how these big dualies deal with the dirt (albeit relatively mild dirt), so for part two we’ll take a look at how they react to the asphalt.
Just having to sit down and process the reams of information and notes about all these bikes has been a real eye-opener. Okay, it’s been a right pain in the arse as well, but comparing each bike’s abilities in various terrains has yielded a pretty good idea of their standing in respect to each other.
It’s on the dirt that the differences between the two bikes really became apparent. Both bikes perform very well on the asphalt. Similar performance, handling and general usability. The GS only really distinguishing itself at slower speeds where the C of G becomes a big factor.
