Triumph introduced the mid-sized Tiger in 2011 to very little fanfare. I personally never cared for this bike, but several people I trust in the industry swear by it thanks to its 3/4 size compared to big ADV bikes, excellent ergonomics, and a hell of a triple that owes its existence to Triumph’s famous 675 with longer stroke and less aggressive camshaft timing.
The de-stressed and enlarged triple was good for 84 horsepower at 9,900 rpm and 51 pound-feet of torque at 7,700rpm. I spent a weekend with the Tiger 800 (entirely on pavement) and didn’t enjoy it, but I did appreciate the fact that it was basically a 3/4 scale ADV bike, which enables lots of riders to flat foot it and feel confident while riding it. For more information on the Tiger, check out this review from Rider magazine.
This example has 11,367 miles and the seller says that it’s never been off-road. It has a recent oil change, newish tires, clutch cable, and some extras like a Kaoko throttle lock, Barkbuster hand guards, a few spare parts, and the factory hard bags.Find this Tiger for sale in Cape Elizabeth, Maine for $6,000 here on Craigslist.
