Triumph is looking to wage an all-out war in all the segments as we have just come across the spy-shots of the 2020 Triumph Tiger. The Hinckley firm recently gave the enthusiasts a heck of a surprise by announcing the new Triumph Daytona 765 and now a new Tiger has been spotted, along with the new Daytona 765… both in flesh!







The Triumph Daytona 765 is inspired the Moto2 spec machine that Triumph made to test the Moto2 engine that they supply to Moto2. The motorcycle has stayed true to the rendered image. While in the images it looks hindered by the carry kit at the back, we can easily imagine the motorcycle without it and it looks smashing. Triumph has promised the highest-spec model which will don a race-inspired colour scheme.

Other than that, the frame has been tined to copy the ‘racer for the street’ selling point and Triumph has stated that it is the closest one can get to a ‘certified Moto2 machine’. While we content ourselves with these photos, we have wait until 23rd August (the Silverstone round of MotoGP) for the full reveal.

But the Daytona is not the stopping point for Triumph as we have also spotted a new Tiger model being tested as well. Being touted as the 2020 Triumph Tiger (some say 800 and some say that it will get a displacement boost and be called a 900), the motorcycle has been seriously trimmed down. The motorcycle has lost all bulk and is seemingly trying to capitalize on the newfound popularity of rally-style motorcycles such as the Ténéré 700 from Yamaha.

Also noticeable is the increased suspension travel (we expect 250 mm on both the ends) with the new Showa suspension (the WPs have been scrapped). The new suspension coupled with the new swingarm is set to provide the 2020 Triumph Tiger with the improved off-roading capabilities. The front fascia has had a significant makeover and the design seems like a nod to the Tramontana rally bicycle Triumph assembled two years prior. The TFT dash also seems to be bigger than the current model.

With the 2020 Triumph Tiger, the new Triumph Daytona 765, the new Triumph Rocket III R and GT, and the TFC special editions of Rocket and Thruxton, we have no doubt that the folks at Hinckley are hard at work and we won’t be surprised if there are quite a few new models in the pipeline!
