The Fall issue came out a few weeks ago with the 2007 model line-up and a long article on the development of that hideous bike they call the new Tiger.

You write like the previous Tiger was belle of the ball.

I'm partial to the older Tigers (955i and Steamers)...in case you couldn't tell. :) Like most owners of the pre-2007 models, I'm disappointed in the direction Triumph went with the new ones.

BTW, if the original poster would like my copy of the magazine...just send me your address via PM and I'll mail it to you.

DFW - I like the appearance of the new Tiger, but I see where you're coming from. Triumph is taking the bike in more of a Buell Ulysses direction and away from the BMW GS style. Actually, BMW appears to be making their standard GS more street friendly too, reserving the more rugged styling for the GS Adventure series.

I like the new Tiger. I loved my 01 Tiger and it has high fun factor, but always said it was the ugliest bike around (no offense to the design team). I've heard it is very popular in Europe.

Not only did I get the Torque mag, but I got that "valuable" DVD from Triumph with it--finally decided to send it to an old buddy who used to ride Triumphs back in the '60's. :-D
