Expert Reviews

  • Tiger 1200 is quite an easier and better middle-weight adventure bike compared to old bikes. Essentially its mono-shock is automatically adjustable, which is a very convenient and clever feature of the new model.

  • Not only the idea of losing weight on a bike is different, but it also includes the chassis, engine, and shaft drive design.

  • Triumph Tiger 1200 does not have a single-sided swingarm anymore, but they have a tri-link twin-sided unit which has helped to save one and a half kilos.

  • Triumph has kept simple electronic adjustments so the riders may not be confused. The Seat height is higher, more comfortable, and sportier than the old model, which is best for riders.

  • Overall, the Tiger 1200 feels much more balanced and composed. The bike requires fewer efforts to control; it is far better when a rider picks up the pace. If a biker is too slow, the bike can stall itself.
