Officially named the T110, these 650 Trumpies were built from 1953 until 1961, and were the upgrade from the very successful and much-loved Thunderbird.

The 649cc Parallel Twin Cylinder engine produced 42hp, and output was via a 4-speed gearbox and chain drive.

Weighing in at only 420 lbs (190 kg), the Tiger was capable of 110 mph (176 kph)

In 1956 on Bonneville Salt Flats a modified Tiger T110 broke the Motorcycle Land Speed Record with a recorded 214.15 mph (344.67 kph)
