Why this petition matters

Started by Dan Tanase

We all, Triumph Tiger riders and potential buyers demand an upgrade for all Triumph Tiger 900 and 1200 bikes so that we can change between any riding modes while moving, and don’t have to come to a complete stop to change from “road” to “off road” or at least be able to do that under 50 km/h. The reasons we need this are as follows:

SAFETY: The bike is advertised as an adventure bike, every adventure journey involves transition from sealed roads to gravel roads or dirt roads. It is NOT safe to pull over on the side of the road to change the riding modes, in many cases there is no safe space to do that. In many cases the succession of tarmac and gravel are very often, for shorter or longer distances, it is abnormal to stop 2-3 times in a one mile section just to change modes.
SAFETY: when entering a small section of gravel road and not be able to change to offroad on the move, and not getting space to stop, you end up riding a small gravel hill in “Road” mode and the TC completly stops the bike mid-ride, ending up on the ground.
In conclusion, there is no reason for this abnormal function that only Triumph has introduced, all other major brands went on the obvios, safe and logical way to change between riding modes. If, say, you go on the tarmac and still on “Off Road” mode, you have all the lights flashing on the dashboard that warns the rider, wich is normal and more than enough for any rider to make them aware of the situation and adjust accordingly. For many of us this is an important reason to consider keeping or selling this otherwise great adventure bike, and for the potential buyers a reason to eliminate the bike from their buying list. 
Please take this petition into consideration and help us get the best of this beautiful bike, and make it a real and serious adventure bike.

Thank you!
