The new Tiger Explorer family has been conceived, designed and built to deliver the ultimate go anywhere, do anything transcontinental motorcycle for every adventure rider, wherever they ride.
EVERYTHING FEELS RIGHT WITH THE WORLD
Our new Tiger Explorer is packed full of new rider-focused technology to ensure superb handling stability and control that can be tailored to your personal preference, letting you get the most out of your ride, whether on road, trail or byway.
The range is divided in to two distinct model variants. The XR series are optimised for road use, while the XC models thrive in more rugged terrain, but both are equally happy when the roles are reversed.
The unique-in-class 1215cc triple engine delivers more power and torque, smoothly and progressively across the whole rev range.
TRIUMPH SEMI ACTIVE SUSPENSION (TSAS)
The new Tiger Explorer's performance is given a new level of dynamism on the XCx, XCa, XRx & XRT models with the addition of the ground-breaking Triumph Semi Active Suspension system. This allows the rider to electronically control the adjustment of the front and rear suspension damping, automatically adapting the rear shock absorber pre-load settings to reflect the terrain being covered and providing optimal grip and drive in any situation.
OPTIMISED CORNERING ABS & TRACTION CONTROL
To give the rider the handling, control and response they want, when negotiating well-made roads and broken terrain in all conditions, the new Tiger Explorer offers as standard multi-channel switchable ABS and traction control on the entry level XR and XC models. The other four models come with cornering-optimised ABS and traction control, to ensure superb stability even when approaching the most challenging apex.
The XCx, XCA, XRx and XRT models all feature an Inertial Measurement Unit that, through a series of strategically positioned sensors, monitors and responds to the bike's movement status, calculates the lean angle of the bikes and uses this measurement to ensure greater stability by optimising the performance of the ABS and traction control systems.
HILL HOLD CONTROL
The Tiger Explorer XRT and Tiger Explorer XCA offer a new Hill Hold Control feature that prevents the motorcycle rolling back when attempting to set off on a steep incline – particularly beneficial when the motorcycle is fully-loaded or carrying a passenger.
The new Tiger Explorer family makes full use of Triumph's impressive Rider Mode technology to offer a choice of up to five Rider Modes, four which are pre-set and one which can be programmed by the rider – which alters the configuration of the bike to suit riding style, road and weather conditions.
Each Rider Mode changes the engine map, the levels of ABS and Traction Control, and where fitted, the damping set-up of the TSAS system and power.
RIDER MODES ROAD
Maximises comfort and riding pleasure, particularly over long distances. The ABS and Traction Control settings ensure great stability and optimise braking on paved surfaces. The engine map is set to make the most of the smooth delivery of power over asphalt or similar surfaces. The TSAS (if fitted) will provide the optimal setting for road use.
RIDER MODES: RAIN
Specifically developed conceived for use over wet and slippery surfaces. The engine map reduces power to make the bike more stable in wet conditions. The Traction Control setting minimises rear wheel slip for enhanced control, while the ABS setting prevents lock-up, avoiding uncontrolled skids. The TSAS (if fitted) features a soft set-up to improve grip.
At the heart of the Explorer is a unique 12 valve, 1215cc, in-line three cylinder unit that generates incredible linear torque and power from the largest capacity engine in the segment.
To make the best use of its power, the new Tiger Explorer makes use of an hydraulic, torque assist clutch reducing lever effort and long-term rider fatigue. All models feature a 6 speed gearbox in which the top gear is set high to make cruising long distances both easy and fuel efficient. Power is transmitted to the rear wheel through a low-maintenance final shaft drive.
The new Tiger Explorer also features a new exhaust system that not only helps with the engine performance and achieving compliance with the Euro 4 emissions standard, but also gives the family a distinctive, resonant exhaust note unique to a Triumph triple engine.
The chassis in the new Tiger Explorer has been designed to add a new level of dynamism to adventure riding. The addition of market leading adjustable WP suspension provides an enviable balance of comfort and control on the entry level models which is further enhanced by the inclusion of the all new Triumph active suspension system TSAS on the XCx, XCa, XRx and XRT.
Contemporary crisp lines, technically crafted details and distinctive styling give the new Tiger Explorer a tough, assertive and commanding stance. It displays a modern beauty and proportioned muscularity that portrays the confidence and capability you would expect from Triumph.
The cockpit has been developed with one thing in mind, the rider. Refined ergonomics, all new switch gear and the inclusion of the latest LCD display ensures ease of use even at speed.
ELECTRICALLY ADJUSTABLE SCREEN
The new Tiger Explorer sets a new level of rider focus in the segment. All models feature a first-in-class electrically adjustable screen that allows the rider to constantly tailor aero-protection and comfort whilst riding.
The seating, foot peg and bar position has been developed to ensure maximum rider comfort, whether sitting down putting in the miles, or standing up taking off-road in their stride. The inclusion of the heated grips on the XRc and XCx models, and heated rider and passenger seats on the XRT and XCA, ensure all year round, all climate rider and passenger comfort for the miles ahead.
