The 2022 Triumph Tiger 1200 is likely to receive a new engine, reworked gearbox, and new suspension
It seems Triumph Motorcycles are on a full-blown offensive. After teasing the Speed Triple 1200 RR and the Tiger Sport 660, the Triumph Tiger 1200 is next in line. We do not know much at the moment, but Triumph says the 2022 Tiger 1200 is in its final stages of testing. Triumph also says the new Tiger 1200 will be much lighter than its predecessor, and it will most likely receive a new engine with a slight bump in power and torque figures, though engine displacement may remain the same. The current Tiger 1200 displaces 1215cc and churns out 139bhp and 122Nm of torque.
The design of the 2022 Triumph Tiger 1200 seems to fall in line with the newer Tiger 900 range with slimmer headlights and tail lamp. It is possible that the 2022 Tiger 1200 could do away with the current 19-inch wheel setup at the front, and may instead receive 21-inch wheels at the front, while retaining 17-inch wheels at the rear. The 2022 Triumph Tiger 1200 is also likely to receive Brembo Stylema monobloc calipers up front, considering the fact that even the smaller Tiger 850 Sport gets them as well. The 2022 Triumph Tiger 1200 continues to be shaft-driven, but is expected to receive a complete redesign, while also doing away with the single-side swingarm setup, and instead going for a double-sided swingarm.
While Triumph Motorcycles is keeping the 2022 Tiger 1200 under tight wraps, we expect more information to be made public in the coming months followed by a full reveal soon after. The 2022 Triumph Tiger 1200 is likely to make its way to Indian shores soon after the global launch.
Triumph Motorcycles recently launched the Bonneville Speed Twin for Rs 10.99 lakh (ex-showroom), which you can read more about here. Once launched, we can expect the the 2022 Triumph Tiger 1200 to be priced between Rs 17 to 22 lakh (ex-showroom), and it will lock horns with the likes of the BMW R 1250 GS, Honda Africa Twin, the Ducati Multistrada V4 and the newly launched Harley-Davidson Pan America 1250.
