Stunning looking Tiger.....which also fortunately  went on a diet, unlike most of the opposition's bikes which  mostly become fatter year on year 😁

I like it.

If I may ask a silly question : they speak of changing the firing order to 1-3-2...does this mean the crank configuration has changed ala Yammie flat plane concept?

Yum,  nearing time for my current Triumph to be traded...or not.. Hell with today's prices I think I will keep my 2015 Tiger for another 5 years.

"Rally Pro"
 :imaposer:


On a 200+kg bike with panniers and a topbox.

Why can't the manufacturers of big touring bikes not just call it "Executive Comfort" or "Dirtcruiser" or something.
That is much more true to the actual use of the bike.

And two frames, what a bargain..... :pot:

I liked this.

I have broken subframes on a GS before and bought another that had been repaired. It could be welded, but having a separate subframe means it is replaceable.

I don't remember having read the weight? comparable to 790?
The 240mm suspension travel is also good

Weight seems to be around 200kg dry....But then I doubt it'll feel nearly as light as the 790 as it's still the topheavy fuel tank and tall motor.

So maybe not a serious T7 or 790 contender, but I do think it will be a serious 850GS alternative, as it has been in the past. Good thing, BMW have been slacking with the 850

I always cringe at the name "Rally" or "Dakar" , the Honda 250 Rally is about as far removed from any rally bike possible.

Yeh probably.  It's good to see Triumph actually care about weight for once.  Usually they just build their bikes from Construction I-Beams or something because they're crazy heavy! :biggrin:

Very nice, looks a bit like the Ducati Multistrada from certain angles, especially the front. Despite the "Rally Pro" moniker, it is really a great touring bike and knowing Triumph it will be a bit more affordable than most other in its class. It seems to have all the required Modes and Electronics, at least enough to satisfy the "Tech-Tronic" needs of most modern riders. It is very rare to see a brand release a "bigger and better" version of a bike and lose weight. I love the Triumph Triples, great all round motor and awesome sound.

Thanks Donovan for the Article and pics  :thumleft:

Got a soft spot for the Triumphs, owned 3 in a better life and the XC800 is the bike I miss most of any i have owned before. This one is just better.

Love Triumph triples, but I think the 1200 scrambler twin would be a more 'suitable' alternative.  :3some:
