Triumph 955i. Triumph's trail-styled Tiger has long been one of the firm's most successful and popular models, especially in continental European countries like Germany. Originally introduced in 1992, as one of the first new-generation Hinckley Triumphs, the first Tiger used the carburetted 885cc triple engine shared with the Daytona, Trophy and Trident models. The high-output 12-valve engine was mated to a tough steel-tube cradle frame, fitted with long-travel dirtbike-type suspension at both ends. Wire-spoked wheels, knobbly off-road tyres and a small twin headlamp half-fairing completed the Tiger's styling. But, like most large-capacity trail-styled bikes, the big, heavy Tiger was completely unsuitable for off-road use.
