2012 Triumph Tiger Explorer | Quick Look

2012 Triumph Adventure Motorcycle

When Triumph replaced the Tiger 955 with the 1050 edition, all pretenses of off-pavement riding were eliminated.

The Tiger 800 XC was brought in to satisfy those with an appetite with the dirt, and the Tiger 1050 became tarmac-only.

The new 2012 Tiger Explorer shows that Triumph wants to take its big triple off-road again, thanks to dirt-usable tires and a plastic guard for the three header pipes.

Also, the new motor will be larger than 1200cc and have shaft drive. Cruise control, switchable ABS, and traction control are standard.
