Best Adventure Motorcycle 2011: Triumph Tiger 800 XC

Triumph manufactured a lot of hype for the Tiger 800, so it was a real treat to discover the British mount lived up to expectations. Not just a shrunken version of its big brother Tiger, the 800 was a purpose-built Adventure bike. Triumph even obliged an off-road oriented version, the XC, which features wire-spoked wheels and is easily the most dirt-capable Trumpet produced by the modern Hinkley company.

Special Edition Bonneville & Speed Triple for 2012

For those who dream of owning the Trophy TR6 that almost cleared the barbed-wire fence in The Great Escape, a Steve McQueen Edition Bonneville is the next-best thing.

This one gets a solo seat and skidplate, along with a smaller retro headlight, various stealthy blacked-out bits and McQueen’s signature on each side cover. Only 1100 examples will break out of Triumph’s Hinckley works, as evidenced by a numbered badge on the handlebar clamp.

Triumph Speedmaster (2011-current)

Triumph Speedmaster (2011-current)Considering the price you get a lot of bike for your money. This ‘junior cruiser’ doesn’t feel like a lesser bike; it’s not underpowered, doesn’t feel budget, is cool and still has big bike appeal. So good and such value for money I’d question why you’d want anything bigger unless you’re a dedicated big custom fan.

Triumph Out-Monsters Ducati, BMW in ‘Naked Bike’ Commuter Trials: Review

Biking magazines, advertisers and movies would have us believe motorcyclists spend their time screaming around racetracks or roaming the highways in packs wearing bandannas. This is not so.

Most riders do little more than go to and from work, trying to avoid being smashed by things with four wheels. It is for these riders -- who don’t want to be hunched over a replica race bike or manhandle a big tourer -- that so-called street-naked or super-naked bikes were designed.
