Spy photos have emerged of a new 2021 Triumph Tiger 1200 that is being put to the test in Europe. We’d bet this is a Rally edition of the machine, due to the reinforced skid plate and wire-spoke wheels, although there are a number of improvements that we noted could mean a more extensive update to the model line.

The first is a new suspension package, which from the look of the gold forks could be Öhlins. The monoshock is not that clearly visible though, but in a premium package like this we imagine this is Öhlins too.
Another interesting element is the seemingly slimmer look of the motorcycle, which appears to have a lower and less pronounced fuel tank, revised bodywork, and updated frame and subframe.

The engine is also likely to receive a power boost, if Triumph’s recent approach to the Tiger lineup is any indication. For 2020, the Tiger 800 became the Tiger 900, providing plenty of additional power to make up for any losses felt as a result of the more stringent Euro fuel emission standards.

The driveshaft housing also appears to have changed, perhaps an indication that attention was paid to the transmission as well.

With spy photos coming out in early 2020, we’ll likely have answers to these questions and more ahead of the major news of the new model launch in October and November, so be sure to stay tuned for more information as it comes out. .
