Wasn't it also due to the eyebrows on the earlier ones?

When ever Triumph introduce a new model the owners of the previous version get Oh so superior  :icon_lol: so owners of previous model called the ‘steamer’ which is way kind for a bloody Stone Age tractor which has all the connection from throttle to carbs akin to Pony Express compared to the email of the fuel injected Girly  :icon_biggrin:

And like wise the Girly lot gave the 1050 roadie mob such a hard time they flounced off and created their own site  :icon_rolleyes:

Oh and those with gen1 1050’s get all sniffy about the new flyby wire 1050  :icon_biggrin:

And just show what an oddball bunch Tiger owners are its rare to get more than a couple of forums on one bike I remember a time when there were 4 Tiger forums  :icon_scratch:
