TIGER The Tiger is all new for 1999, and lighter, nimbler, more comfortable and more torquey than ever before! Triumph's popular enduro-styled sports tourer now features a new engine, frame, bodywork, brakes and suspension, leaving just the name and the special advantages of this type of machine to the sports touring rider, further improved in the new machine. The engine is an 885cc liquid-cooled triple with fuel injection, tuned for strong low rev torque and mid-range power to suit the Tiger's role as a tourer. It's fitted to a new tubular steel perimeter frame which has the advantage of enabling the fuel tank to be positioned lower down, lowering the centre of gravity, and offers excellent rider and passenger ergonomics, including adjustable seat height. In addition, the new components have resulted in a useful overall weight reduction of 5kg (11lb). The suspension and brakes have also been changed, with stiffer front forks for sharper, more reassuring handling, and the brakes are uprated brakes with a new caliper design and larger discs (up to 310mm from 276mm). Completing the transformation is fresh new styling package which is both distinctive and extremely attractive, and at the same time recognisably Triumph's. An accessory luggage system was designed with the rest of the bike from the outset, ensuring an efficient, integrated machine perfectly suited to long distance riding. The result is a major refinement of those qualities which have already made the Tiger the first choice for many touring riders. The high riding position offers exceptional visiblity, ideal for viewing the surrounding scenery and enhancing safety by allowing the rider to see over cars in an urban environment. The long travel suspension is particularly suited to travel on poor road surfaces either in town or in remote regions. The twin headlamp, frame-mounted fairing offers essential protection from the windblast at speed and provides superb night time visibility. The big 24 litre fuel tank capacity gives the bike an exceptional range between fill-ups for fewer interruptions to the riding pleasure.

1. The 885cc fuel-injected triple has been retuned from its role in the outgoing Speed Triple T509 to produce 87PS (86bhp) at 8,200rpm and 85Nm (62lb.ft) at 6,400rpm. These compare with the previous Tiger's figures of 85PS (84bhp) at 8,000rpm and 82Nm (60lb.ft) at 6,000rpm, and the previous Speed Triple T509's figures of 108PS (106bhp) at 9,100rpm and 85Nm (63lb.ft) at 7,500rpm. 2. The throttle bodies have been changed and now use 5 degree butterflies in place of the previous 12 degree items, to provide the rider with more precise control at very small throttle openings. These have resulted in a liquid smooth power delivery that enhances low speed riding particularly. 3. A new stepper motor in the air bypass system eliminates hunting at idle, giving the bike a more reliable tickover speed. 4. The airbox is constructed of screwed together components rather than welded to improve quality and ease maintenance, further enhanced by its new snap-on fit. 5. The 1999 Tiger has an all-new, tubular steel perimeter frame which incorporates the engine as a stressed component, and allows improved ergonomics, reduced weight and adjustable seat height. 6. The combination of new engine and frame have resulted in a 5kg (11lb) reduction in the Tiger's overall weight, benefiting all aspects of performance, including acceleration, braking and handling. In additon, the centre of gravity is lower, improving manoeuvrability and low speed balance. 7. The '99 Tiger's seat is adjustable in three positions from a height of 840mm (33.1in) to 860mm (33.8in), increasing accessibility to a greater range of riders. 8. A combination of new caliper design with an increase in disc diameter from 276mm to 310mm has increased braking power and improved feedback to the rider. 9. The front forks are firmer on the new Tiger, for sharper handling and more accurate steering. 10. Rear grip has been improved with a 150/80 ZR17 tyre in place of the previous 140/80 x 17 fitment. 11. A 12V power socket is included as standard fitment, compatible with a wide range of accessories, improving the versatility of the Tiger as a touring machine. 12. The sealed battery is fitted as standard for ease of maintenance. 13. A selection of Triumph accessories is available, designed from the concept stage to complement the Tiger perfectly.
