2013 Triumph Tiger Explorer XC announced


Exactly one month before BMW unveil the current R1200GS' successor, Triumph have announced the new Tiger Explorer 1200 XC. Touché!

Triumph have now announced the Tiger Explorer XC, their new adventure tourer which will go on sale in April 2013. With styling cues from the Tiger 800 XC, the Explorer XC is powered by Triumph’s 1215cc three-cylinder engine that produces 135 horsepower and 120Nm of torque.

In keeping with its off-road-oriented ‘adventure touring’ positioning, the new Triumph Tiger Explorer rides on 19-inch (front) and 17-inch (rear) aluminium-rimmed steel-wire-spoked wheels, shod with dual-purpose tubeless tyres. There are also all the other off-road accoutrements that you might expect – things like hand guards, 55w dual fog lights, an aluminium belly pan and steel tube engine bars.

A maintenance-free shaft drive (with single-side swingarm), cruise control, switchable ABS and traction control system make the Tiger Explorer XC very well suited to long-distance touring, with as much ‘adventure’ thrown in as you can handle. And 16,000km service intervals and a 2-year unlimited mileage warranty only makes things better.
