Two new Tiger 1200 editions were announced by Triumph recently - the Alpine Edition and the Desert Edition - but exactly what sets these apart from the current Tiger 1200s... if anything? We decided to look at the specifications to find out more and to try to make sense of these models given the current lineup.
A meeting on the 7th March between 10:00 and 11:00 is going to be held at Triumph Birmingham East in Tamworth. The subject of the meeting will be the formation of a new branch of the TOMCC aligned to the Triumph Birmingham East dealership and covering the Tamworth and North East Birmingham area.
Triumph Motorcycles and Bajaj Auto have formally announced a long-term non-equity partnership to produce a range of high-quality motorcycles with midrange engines. The motorcycles will be manufactured at Bajaj's plant in Pune for the Asian market with the entry-level model costing around £2,200.
Netherlands based custom motorcycle builder Icon Motorcycles have started producing Tritons using the modern Triumph 900cc air-cooled engine. These are unique on-offs so they won't be cheap, but they will be something to marvel at and will keep true to the spirit of the Cafe Racer in their styling and presence.
No, it's not another version of Grindr, it is the service provided by the TOMCC which allows you to get proof of age/manufacturing date for your Triumph. The cost of this service was increased on 1st January 2020 to £10 for Club Members or £32 for non-Members (UK), having not been increased for almost 20 years!
Draganfly's workshops were not quiet over the festive period and they have a lot of new parts to show off. Their GRP workshop produces glass-fibre replica panels and fairings based on the originals and from original metal patters where at all possible. They have produced a couple of new Triumph panels in GRP.
Triumph have announced the launch of the new Street Triple S and it's a bit of a shock as it is only 660cc! That was previously the domain of the 'A2 Licence' version but it now seems that Triumph have killed the 765cc S model leaving just the RS and the R. Does this stack up? Read on to find out if we agree.
Triumph have made 2020 a Happy New Year with a set of offers on their machines for 2020. These offers are only available in the UK and end on the 31st March. Offers are available on their Scramblers, Modern Classics, Tiger 1200s, Tiger 800s, Tiger Sport, Speed Triple RS, Street Triple RS, and Street Triple S and R.
We, at the TOMCC, would like to wish all our 7,789 Members (and growing) a Happy Christmas and New Year. The Membership Office has now closed for the holidays but don't worry, we are still taking Memberships online. However any memberships we get by post in between Christmas and the New Year will not be processed until the New Year.
We have been waiting almost a year for the My Triumph app to hit the App Stores, but finally Triumph have got around to producing both an Android and an iOS version which have been released at the same time. The app is available for free and although designed for Triumphs anyone can download it and use the features.
Being held from May 1st to May 4th 2020 at St Audries, Somerset, there are still many months (including the whole of Winter) to go until Trifest Somerset 2020. However the event is fast selling out and with over 150 people booked there are only 3 chalets and one camping pitch left. If you want to go then be quick!
A quantum leap forward in capability. That's Triumph's tag line for the new Tiger 900 range comprising 5 model variants. There is a basic Tiger 900 all-rounder, a Tiger 900 GT for on road (and a Pro version), and a Tiger 900 Rally (and a Pro version of that) for off-road. It has been built to beat the competition.
The National Association for Bikers with a Disability is a well deserving cause that several TOMCC Members have reason to be grateful to. As a result the TOMCC intends to become a Premium Affiliated Club and seek out ways to work together to promote both the NABD and the Club.
In Hall 3 to the left of the Black Horse main stage. The TOMCC are once again exhibiting at the Motorcycle Live show at the N.E.C. in Birmingham. The Show is open from the 16th November to the 24th November and Club Stalwarts Ken and Jan Talbot (Chairman and Secretary respectively) will be there all week.
Triumph have released a teaser for their upcoming launch of their new Tiger 900 models. The Tiger 900 Rally and Tiger 900 GT are expected to replace the Tiger 800 XR and XC models. Triumph's teaser is very short but shows the two machines in various scenarios from desert to road. More details will be forthcoming.
