It’s your ride, it’s your journey, and it’s your planet to explore.


So whether you choose motorways or mud tracks, twisty tarmac or bumpy town streets, Triumph’s range of adventure and touring motorcycles all share your passion for travel and discovery. Together with Triumph, the spirit of your adventure lives on.

Though its styling radiates an aura of adventure riding, the Tiger 1050 is a pure streetbike with no pretensions of dirt ability. It’s a really good, fun street machine, in fact, we said it was “Triumph’s best all-around bike” in 2007. With its trick aluminum frame, 43mm inverted fork, 17-inch wheels shod with sporty rubber and radial-mount calipers biting dual front rotors, the 1050 is a giggle-a-minute riot on twisty backroads. Yet thanks to its comfy ergonomics, torque-heavy three-cylinder powerplant and tall sixth gear, it cruises the open road with ease, especially if accompanied by a set of optional saddlebags.
