Triumph Tiger 1200 To Get T-Plane Crank



Triumph Motorcycles continues to tease the upcoming update to the big Tiger 1200, with the latest news out of Hinkley being that the bike will make use of the same T-plane crank setup that debuted with the Tiger 900.

Triumph says the new Tiger 1200 will deliver more power and character than its closest competition, which the brand sees as BMW's R 1250 GS as it is the only other shaft-driven bike in the class. According to Triumph, the new 1200 engine brings all of the low-down torque delivery of a twin, married to the top-end punch and an incredible soundtrack that only a triple can produce.


At the rate at which Triumph is teasing info on the new bike, we expect to have full details of the bike including when we can expect it to land in New Zealand in the next month or so.
