What to Expect

The Tiger had a proper swinging arm frame and, perhaps, the neatest line in style. Upgraded engine components in second year of manufacture helped reliability and re-engineered motors, these days, are pretty tough, though still suffer from high rev vibration. A weak frame, especially at the swinging arm mount, means even run on decent suspension and tyres it’s a bit ill-making at speed. Also 42hp TR6 Trophy trailster.
