Triumph Adventure teaser – Click above to watch the video after the break

About a decade ago, Triumph offered a pretty decent motorcycle in the vein of the BMW GS series of large-displacement on/off-road adventure bikes. As the Tiger aged, though, it gradually took on a more street-oriented presence, more in line with the Ducati Multistrada than the aforementioned BMWs or anything wearing bright orange and black bodywork.

Now that adventure motorcycles are all the rage (and with good reason, we might add), it seems that Triumph wants back in the game. The British brand is teasing a new bike tentatively known simply as the Adventure on its own dedicated website and on Facebook (it's the new way of marketing, natch).

We don't know much about the Adventure, other than some hints that it will use a smaller displacement version of Triumph's well-loved triple cylinder layout. Expect something around 800cc to compete directly with the BMW F 800 GS. There will be two versions of the bike, one for the street and one more off road oriented.

The full reveal is scheduled for the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan this November, but we can expect a set of teasers every month until then. The first can be seen in the video after the jump.

      I will be watching closely. Triumph has been making some really great bikes for a long time and will want to enter into this in a big way. I hope they do it right.
