Custom color for Triumph Tiger SE

Matte graphic and matte black version available

By Motorcycle.Com Staff, Apr. 30, 2009
Triumph has unveiled a special edition model of the 2009 Triumph Tiger featuring a new matte graphite and matte black two-tone paint scheme with color matched saddle bags and hand guards and an anti-lock braking system.

According to Triumph, the Tiger SE’s color scheme was inspired by one of Triumph’s most cherished employee benefits: the privilege of specifying a bike with custom paint. The Triumph design team was experimenting with different colors and found that the combination worked so well with the lines of the Tiger that the factory decided to make it available on the limited edition Tiger SE.

“The Tiger has received rave reviews for being one of the best all-around bikes on the market,” says Jim Callahan, North American Marketing Manager for Triumph Motorcycles. “The new Tiger SE’s custom matte graphite and black paint really sets the bike apart from the other motorcycles in its class. It looks fantastic, so you’ll want to hurry while they’re still in stock.”

The Tiger SE was inspired by a custom paint scheme previously available only to Triumph employees.

The Tiger is powered by Triumph’s 1050cc three-cylinder engine with a claimed 113hp at 9,400rpm and 74 ft. lbs. of torque at 6,250rpm. An adjustable sport suspension and 120 front/180 rear sport tires mounted on 17-inch wheels are combined with Nissin brakes.

The standard 2009 Triumph Tiger remains unchanged from last year and continues to be available with or without ABS in three color options: Fusion White, Jet Black and Blazing Orange.

The Tiger and limited edition Tiger SE motorcycles are available at authorized Triumph dealers throughout North America. To find your local Triumph dealer, please visit
