2013 Triumph Tiger Explorer XC Review

Triumph-Tiger-Explorer-XC-featured

When Triumph introduced its Tiger 800 and 800XC for 2011 and Tiger Explorer for 2012, the British manufacturer clearly wanted a slice of the rapidly growing adventure-touring market, with its sights set primarily on BMW’s popular GS line. The Tiger 800/XC compete head-to-head with the BMW F 650 GS and F 800 GS, respectively, and the Tiger Explorer competes with ...

2013 Sport-Touring Comparison Test: BMW K1600GT, BMW R1200RT, Kawasaki Concours 14, Triumph Trophy, Yamaha FJR1300

2013 Sport-Touring Comparison Test: BMW K1600GT, BMW R1200RT, Kawasaki Concours 14, Triumph Trophy, Yamaha FJR1300

Sport touring, a hybrid category that blends the performance of sportbikes with the comfort of touring bikes, takes many forms. Some add a taller windscreen, bar risers and soft luggage to their GSX-R, while others bevel the pegs and scrape the belly pan on their Gold Wing. Between these two extremes are dedicated sport-touring motorcycles. In recent years, the space ...

2013 Triumph Trophy SE – Road Test Review

2013 Sport-Touring Comparison Test: BMW K1600GT, BMW R1200RT, Kawasaki Concours 14, Triumph Trophy, Yamaha FJR1300

The Triumph Trophy SE is the only all-new model in this comparison, yet it seems strangely familiar. Its liquid-cooled, 1,215cc in-line triple is the same engine found in Triumph’s Tiger Explorer adventure tourer (though the Trophy has a taller sixth gear and recalibrated throttle-by-wire settings), and its styling, cockpit and features are eerily similar to that of the BMW R ...

Whether you’re a novice rider who’s a bit unsteady at stops, or just a little vertically challenged, when you’re holding up a motorcycle at a standstill there’s nothing like having both feet firmly on the ground.

2013 Triumph Bonneville- Road Test Review

web-WING8899

When our Imperial Purple/Fusion White Triumph Bonneville was delivered, I was sure it was a mistake, certain that the bike was intended for the artist currently and formerly known as Prince. Other bold colors available for 2013 include Intense Orange/Phantom Black and Aurum Gold, or you can go with basic black or white. While Triumph busied itself expanding its lineup ...

2013 Triumph Daytona 675 and 675R – First Look Review

Daytona-Front-3-4-featured

After failing to find success with its TT600, a sportbike with a 600cc in-line four-cylinder engine that competed head-to-head with well-developed offerings from Japan’s Big Four, Triumph launched the Daytona 675 in 2006, powered by a 675cc in-line triple, an engine configuration that has largely come to define the British manufacturer. The Daytona was updated in 2008, but it has ...

2012 Triumph Speed Triple R – Road Test Review

web-WING4873

Today’s Triumph Speed Triple is light years ahead of the original sport standard introduced in 1994, never mind the historic 1938 Triumph Speed Twin after which the Triple is named. The latest 2011-model styling revamp for the iconic streetfighter is sexy, too, except for the trademark bug-eye headlamps, the new shapes of which stray too far from the original round ...

2013 Triumph Trophy SE – First Ride Review

2012 Triumph Trophy SE

Is Triumph still salty about having its Coventry factory destroyed by the German Luftwaffe during World War II? The all-new Trophy, a sport tourer powered by the 1,215cc triple found in the Explorer, shares more than a passing resemblance with BMW’s perennial, Alps-bred R 1200 RT (Rider, September 2012). Beyond looks, the Trophy also takes after the RT with excellent ...
