Let's go. At a height of 83 centimetres, one sits rather low compared to other adventure bikes like the Multistrada from Ducati, but only in this comparison. For short-legged, this is nothing.
On the other hand, no one needs to bring bear forces to the start for the operation, because the first impression when driving off will last for the whole test: clutch and gearbox work very smoothly and precisely. In general, the handling of the Triumph Tiger 1050 Sport is characterized by an almost astonishing lightness.
The difference between driving and the first expectation is striking because the triumph does not give the motorcycle twiggy. Her design is neither delicate, nor is it particularly light at 241 kilos of live weight. On the road, from the hand protectors to the windshield, the rider always has a lot of motorcyclearound around him.
Can the Triumph tour? In terms of comfort, the bench not only looks comfortable, but it is. Even the Socius will not start to moan after 100 kilometers. The windshield is adjustable in height and offered good protection during our test. Knee angle and sitting position also fit. Also yes: Three driving modes can be set via the on-board computer, the preload is adjustable all around. Everyone should find something there. So is the adventure just behind the next hill? No, definitely not.
