Cycle Update- Triumph Tiger gets changes

Triumph Motorcycles says its sport-adventure Tiger, powered by a three-cylinder 955cc fuel-injected engine, has been enhanced for 2005 with a sharpened chassis geometry for quicker steering, a shortened wheelbase, a retooled suspension for a more controlled ride, cast wheels and tubeless tires, revised shift and brake levers, a new silver frame finish and updated tank graphics.
The 2005 Tiger is scheduled to debut at Triumph dealerships throughout the U.S. in May. Available in Aluminum Silver, British Racing Green or Lucifer Orange, the bike comes complete with hard saddlebags and a MSRP of $10,500. Like all of Triumph’s models, the Tiger is covered by a comprehensive 24-month warranty.
