Some interesting details there - but is the featured bike the replacement for the 800 or the Explorer? I guess we'll have to wait a couple of weeks to find out.

Updates for both the 800 and 1200 I reckon. There's a sprocket and chain on one of the bikes, so at least the 800. Can't wait.

Yup, no big anchor of a shaft drive on at least one of them, thankfully

Could be a new Tiger "family" as defo a chain in one shot and the front end "look" of a 1200 in another.  TFT instruments.  That seems to get a lot of people excited for some reason.

Hmmm...

Thought this was just a matching facelift, with some new bits of tech, but it does say "new engine" so ....  :027: what does that mean.

MCN says replacement for 800, Visordown is adamant it's still a 800.

Confused or what  :087:

Visordown says 2018 range is as follows:

Tiger XR 800cc 95PS

Tiger XRX 800cc 95PS

Tiger XCX 800cc 95PS

Tiger XRT 800cc 95PS

Tiger XCA 800cc 95PS

Tiger XRX (LRH) 800cc 95PS

Tiger XCX (LRH) 800cc 95PS

Tiger 1200 XR 1215cc 139PS

Tiger 1200 XRX 1215cc 139PS

Tiger 1200 XCX 1215cc 139PS

Tiger 1200 XRT 1215cc 139PS

Tiger 1200 XCA 1215cc 139PS

Tiger 1200 XRX (LRH) 1215cc 139PS

It could be read ether way, the words on the video say 'New Tiger (new line) Triple Engine'  It doesn't say 'New Tiger Triple Engine'  :027:
