Triumph’s NEW Tiger Explorer lands at Aussie Dealers
Triumph first entered the Adventure touring market in 2011 with the ultra successful Tiger 800 range which quickly grew a loyal and enthusiastic following, and has proved itself a robust mid-size option in the adventure touring segment.
In 2012, Triumph released the original Tiger 1200 Explorer, fully decked out with shaft drive, cruise control and a three-cylinder engine that powered through the open road kilometres with little reason to head back to the dealer between treks thanks to the huge 16,000km service intervals.
Current Tiger Explorer owners thrive on the smooth power deliver of the in-line triple, while comfort on the open highway and sure-footed off-road handling for dirt stretches opens new horizons to adventure.
The new Explorer ticks all the boxes in the rider-aid technology department featuring class leading electronic semi active WP suspension, five active rider modes, versatile lean angle ABS and traction control settings, all delivered through a refined ride-by-wire throttle.
When it comes to long touring days in the saddle, it’s all about creature comforts, and comforts the Explorer offers in droves.
The top of the line XCa and XRt models feature an electronically adjustable windscreen, heated grips, heated seats, cruise control, hand guards, hill hold control and a range of protective accessories.
The new Tiger Explorer features a host of technological upgrades with a particular emphasis on state-of-the-art active technology to ensure superb stability and control.
A low seat version is also available with a seat height of only 785mm.
