The 1968 Triumph Tiger Cub has a single-cylinder, 500-horsepower engine. It was a 350cc "3TA" engine, similar to the T100S/S engine made at the time. The bike has the Triumph's characteristic low and flat-top profile with subdued handlebars. The 1968 model of Tiger was the first in which the company put a twin leading shoe brake.
Along with the luxury of toggle-activated, 12-volt lights, the Tiger 90 had improved front forks from previous models. It also had new gaiters and clips with seal holders. The earlier mono-block carburettor and intake manifold connections are replaced by cap bolts. A removable cover was also added for easy ignition timing.
Triumph shifted the ignition switch to the left in the 1968 Tiger 90, letting the side panel become removable for extra storage space. The filler cap for the oil tank is now of the dipstick variety, too, though the oil tank itself is the same as the Tigers made in 1967. The 1968 model came in "Riviera blue" or silver.
