2010 Triumph tiger SE vs. 2008 Benelli Tre1130K

By Pete Brissette, Jul. 14, 2009, Photography by Alfonse Palaima, Video by Fonzie

In standard 5-card poker the Pair is second from the bottom out of roughly nine possible hand rankings. However, in 3-card poker, a Pair fairs much better. Motorcycle.com is holding a pair of 3s and is ready to bet the house you’re interested in what we have!

We brought Triumph’s Tiger and Benelli’s Tre1130K together for what turned out to be a closer competition than we first expected.

Both bikes are standard-style with comfy upright rider triangles, and both just skirt the notion of being adventure-touring bikes. As a matter of fact, in its early iterations the Tiger was far more gravel-road ready than it is now, as it spun a 110/80 x 19-inch spoke-wheel up front and carried fuel in a mile-eating 6.4 gallon tank. In 2007 the Tiger underwent considerable changes that narrowed its focus to being primarily a pavement player. The Tiger now rolls on 17-inch cast-aluminum wheels that allow it the choice of wearing sportbike rubber (120 up front and 180 rear) and has a smaller 5.2-gallon fuel tank. It also shed around 40 lbs and picked up a bigger engine.
