What are you on now? I just picked this one up. 2015 with 13k miles. Loving it so far, my first super sport. Came from a Yamaha r3 that I sold(planned) and a 18 Street Triple 765 RS(unplanned) that I crashed a week ago.

Well I finally picked up a new bike after getting T-boned on my 990 SDR.

Can anyone guess what it is?

Finally got the street bike back together, so was out for a ride last weekend, hoping I can do a short repeat this weekend too. Rode with a friend for a bit, then solo as he had to leave early and it was just too beautiful to go home.

Yup! 2010 Tiger 1050, I wish we got the Sport model over here in the states.

Picked it up for a song in NV with only 4k miles on it.

It's basically a Speed Triple with fairings.

Just a short write up if anyone cares:

I never understood the love for these triples since I borrowed a friend's street triple 675 and it just felt like a slightly meatier inline 4 ( felt weaker than my FZ8).

However this 1050 is just something else entirely. It's not a raw and visceral punch like my 990 SDR but it's so refined and I can only explain it as thrust. Smooth drama free and unrelenting thrust that continues to increase as you twist the throttle, pulling away clean from 30mph in 4th gear is buttery smooth.

With some suspension work, a high mount Mivv suono, decat, performance air filter/intake mod with a good tune and some low fat bars it's going to be one of a sleeper while still being a wonderful two up machine when I put the panniers on and take it up the coast.


This is what I'm aiming for aesthetically:
