Still no specs or details, other than that this is the off-road version that has a 21″ front wheel with knobbies.  The more street-oriented version will have a 17″ front wheel and street tires.  other than that, we’re still waiting on all the tech specs for these two models of the new Tiger.

Like all modern enduros, it has a beak, too, a la the BMW R1200GS.  I still don’t know what BMW did to get that passed into law.
