If riding a motorcycle off the pavement isn’t exactly your cup of tea, but you’re still looking for a adventure-style street motorcycle—the new Triumph Tiger Sport might just be the ticket to get you out and exploring those twisties. The Tiger Sport is a comprehensive update from the well-received Tiger 1050, with the rear half of the motorcycle being completely remodeled, including a new single-sided swingarm. Even though the new model shares the same 1050cc three-cylinder engine, power is up to 125PS a gain of 10PS, thanks to some special exhaust and intake tuning. A new rear subframe lowers the passenger seat, and at the same time allows for the fitment of optional panniers that have an impressive weight capacity of 10kg each—they’re even large enough to carry a full face helmet.

Triumph is lauding the Tiger Sport as a “perfect, real-world sports bike.” There’s certainly no doubt that it’ll be a fun ride.
