Triumph have been working on the Triumph 1200 Tiger Explorer for a few years, but have now finally added it to their Adventure range. Triumph had to design and build a brand-new engine as well as a brand-new motorcycle. The Triumph Explorer's 1215cc, three-cylinder engine shares neither its parts nor its dimensions with any other engine in the current Triumph's model line-up.
The three cylinders run 85 x 71.4mm bore and stroke dimensions and a full ride-by-wire Keihin fuel injection system takes care of a number of important aspects such as cruise control, traction control and capping the top speed at 220km/h.
Triumph claims a peak figure of 135 horsepower and, the most crucial part, a peak torque of 121Nm delivered at 6,400 revolutions per minute. The Triumph 1200 Explorer comes with traction control, ABS, cruise control as standard equipment. The suspension at the front and rear is courtesy of Kayaba. A 46mm inverted fork and a monoshock unit with progressive rising rate linkage at the back offer 190mm and 194mm of wheel travel respectively. The new Triumph Tiger comes with adjustable rider seat height, handlebar position and screen in line with a 20-liter fuel tank.
One of the interesting points to note is that the Triumph 1200 Tiger has a 16,000km service interval.meta:key Tiger,Triumph,1200,Triumph-1200-Tiger,Explorer,Adventurer,cruising,touring,motorcycle,Triumph-Adventure,bike,motorbike,Thailand]
