Triumph Tiger Looking to Relish a Century Old Legacy on the Indian Soil
Britain, the land where the sun never sets was once known as the conqueror of the entire globe. Their victories and triumphs knew no bounds which even started transpiring in their vehicles and commutes. In such a turn of events to acknowledge the valiance of the British army and to commemorate their victories, a new motorcycle company was born by the name of Triumph; thus came their first motorcycle – the Triumph Tiger.
Behold the legend:
It was in the 1930's when the first Tiger from Triumph saw the British tarmac. With 250cc and 500c trims at disposal, it got the identity of a capable sports bike. However, by 1940, this journey saw an unfortunate halt due to heavy German bombing and the consequent complete destruction of the production unit.
However, Triumph saw light again a decade later in 1954 when it rolled out the Tiger 110. This model went to secure the title of the world's fastest bike in 1956 clocking a speed of 344.67 km/h. The next four decades saw three significant models in the names of Triumph Tiger Club Daytona and Trail; and it was finally in 1993 when the company gave birth to its first adventure sports model – the Tiger 900.
Tiger 900 began a new journey with their 885cc motorcycle series and received a new chassis and frame line with its Tiger 995 variant. Succeeding these models came the Tiger 1050 which in Triumph's words was the perfect commuter. It also paved the way for the Tiger Explorer and finally, the latest, Tiger Sport.
