Triumph Motorcycles increases its range in the Adventure Touring market with the launch of the new ‘wire wheeled’ version of its Tiger Explorer.
Key to the rugged look of the Explorer are the new aluminium rimmed, steel spoked wheels. Maintaining the 19″ front and 17″ rear of the Explorer, the new Triumph designed spoked wheels retain the Explorer’s incredible dynamic handling providing the additional benefit of tubeless tyres. If ‘mid-adventure’ you find yourself suffering with a flat tyre, the experience can soon turn into an adventure of a different kind! Triumph’s tubeless rims ensure this will not be the case and allow you to quickly resume your explorations without the need for an extensive tool kit or experienced tyre fitters.
The Tiger Explorer wire wheeled model is powered by the same Triumph shaft-driven 1215cc triple as the alloy wheeled model. Producing 137ps with 121Nm of torque the engine continues to impress. Add into the equation cruise and traction control, switchable ABS and a virtually maintenance free shaft drive, you have the perfect combination for long distance adventure touring. All confidently backed up by a 16,000 kilometre service interval and unlimited mileage two-year warranty.
Test rides at Triumph dealerships will be available March 2013 and pricing will be announced shortly.
