Magazine Articles:

MCN -- April 2007, page 16 -- Triumph Tiger 1050: Third Time's The Charm

    "To provide the muscle for high-speed sport-touring, Triumph's very latest big triple is fitted. This DOHC, four-valve, 1050cc motor is also available in the current Sprint ST and Speed Triple. All are mechanically identical. Only the fuel and ignition maps are changed to match the intake and exhaust systems and the 'character' desired for each version. Compared to the older 955cc motor, the added displacement arrives via a stroke increase from 65mm to 71.4mm, while the bore remains the same at 79mm." -- Dave Searle, Editor-in-Chief

Rider -- April 2007, page 50 -- King of the Jungle: 2007 Triumph Tiger 1050

    "Before even starting it the first thing I noticed was that this bike is tall. It almost has the profile of a dual-sport motorcycle, except that on a dual-sport the suspension will usually compress enough for me to comfortably touch the ground. The Tiger, not so much. The seat is almost 33 inches high, which is the same as the model it replaces. I could barely touch the ground with the tips of my toes. A beginner bike this is not! Although the tall seat height made it a chore for a shorty like me to throw a leg over it, once on I had a commanding view of what lay ahead." -- Troy Siahaan, Road Test Editor
