‘It’ll happen one day, and maybe this is the day...’

-

Triumph’s biggest cat appears to have got the cream. They won’t say it on the record, but the goal in the corridors of Triumph is clear: They want to catch and pass the BMW R1250GS (and GS Adventure) in terms of performanc­e and popularity. Everything about the new Tigers puts the GS in the cross hairs.

Will they do it? The spec claims suggest it could be in with a good shout, but the proof is always in the riding (for us) and in the showroom (for Triumph). Most people who buy a GS do so simply because they want a GS – but the combinatio­n of ‘best’ and ‘British’ could sway some movement in Hinckley’s favour. It’s one of the bikes I’m most excited about riding in 2022 – and the GS will be toppled one day, maybe this is the day...
