Spy shots have emerged of a new 2021 Triumph Tiger 1200 being put through its paces in Europe. We’d wager this to be a Rally edition of the machine, owing to the beefed-up skid plate and wire-spoked wheels, though there are a number of upgrades we notice that could mean a more expansive model-line update.

The first is a new suspension package, which by the look of the gold forks could be Öhlins. The monoshock isn’t as clearly visible, however, but on a premium package like this we’d imagine this to be Öhlins as well.

Another interesting element is the apparently slimmed-down aspect of the bike, which looks to have a lower, less pronounced fuel tank, revised bodywork, and an updated frame and subframe.

It’s also likely that the engine will get a bump in power too, if Triumph’s recent approach to the Tiger line is any indication. For 2020, the Tiger 800 became the Tiger 900, providing plenty of additional power to offset any losses felt as a result of more stringent Euro fuel emissions standards.

The shaft drive housing also appears to be changed, perhaps an indication that some attention was paid to the transmission as well.

With spy shots coming out this early in 2020, it’s likely we’ll have answers to these questions and more before the major new-model release news in October and November, so be sure to stay tuned for more information as it comes out.
