Triumph 1200 Explorer World Launch in Spain

Tiger 1200 Explorer

It was well worth the hours of sitting at airports, plane,customs lines and eventually a 45 min bus ride.

The 1200 Explorer is as Triumph promised, a GS1200 butt kicker in all respects.

I will not bore the reader with all the technical specs, which are all FREELY available on the Triumph websites (or per email)….but I move onto the capabilities of this machine.

An available seat height of as low as 810 to 880 one immediately is comfortable. Us short people to the tall have been thought of.

The ride by wire throttle is awesome…..full throttle is a mere 1/4 turn. The speed cruise is handy and easy to use,  but over 160 switches off.

Acceration is immediate. The power delivery is awesome. Traffic riding will be very comfortable with th minimum of gear changes.

Standard screen works well but taller riders will need the accessory taller screen.

Luggage is as with the 800….but the Top Box has a acceessory plug available,so to carry that pump is now totally possible.

There is no vibration from the shaft drive and no lag in any gear.

The 19 inch front wheel is firm on the tar and the little gravel we did proved again that the Explorer is capable of all.

Top end……..don’t know.

Fuel……5.6 k/lt average.

Seat change…..within seconds

On and off main stand…….2 swings and up she goes.

Side stand foot……brilliant.

Hazards…….YES

SO in the short 145 km,s……..what a brilliant bike.

The finish to all components is proffessional. Everything works well.

BMW…….watch out……you have HUGE competition in the TRIUMPH 1200 EXPLORER.

2012 Triumph Tiger 1200 Explorer

2012 Triumph Tiger 1200 Explorer
Back to 2012 Triumph Motorcycle Model Review Page

Brand new for 2012 is the Tiger Explorer, a flagship model for Triumph’s Adventure range.

Building upon 2011’s phenomenally successful Tiger 800 models, the Tiger Explorer is powered by an all-new, shaft-driven, three-cylinder engine in excess of 1200cc, delivering class-leading performance to the adventure touring class.

The Tiger Explorer debuts Triumph’s new ‘ride-by-wire’ throttle system and includes cruise control, switchable ABS and traction control as standard. The high specification continues in the chassis department with a strong steel chassis and cast alloy wheels, 19″ front and 17″ rear, the latter showcased thanks to the stylish single-sided swingarm.

A suite of accessories have also been developed for the Tiger Explorer’s launch with hard and soft luggage, low and high seat options and a wide range of heated and electrical accessories which can be run simultaneously thanks to the Tiger Explorer’s best-in-class 950w generator.

Tiger Explorer. All-new bike. All-new excitement.

The ultimate choice for the long haul adventurer. Class-leading handling. The journey doesn’t have to end when the Tarmac does. Brand new, 1215cc engine, with shaft drive of course. A Triumph to take on the world.

The Tiger Explorer brings a whole new level of performance and specification to the adventure touring sector.

The thoroughly modern powerplant utilises a new ride-by-wire electronic throttle system, allowing Triumph engineers to endow the Tiger Explorer with a number of high-tech rider aids for added rider safety and comfort. Cruise control, traction control and ABS are all standard fitment on the Tiger Explorer. A tough shaft drive system has been developed for the Tiger Explorer, allowing virtually maintenance free touring, and the latest Triumph has been designed to go 10,000 miles between servicing – ideal for those long distance adventures.

Triumph’s reputation for delivering best-in-class handling continues with the Tiger Explorer, which offers a combination of excellent low-speed balance and composed high speed capability. The strong tubular steel trellis frame bears a strong visual resemblance to other models in the Triumph family, while the single-sided rear swingarm showcases the 17” 10-spoke rear wheel. Adjustable 46mm front forks allow the rider to tailor the Tiger Explorer to their individual needs and riding conditions, with the long-travel suspension and 19” front wheel giving the Tiger Explorer the capability to cope with unpaved roads.

All-new instrumentation and switchgear is both comprehensive and intuitive. The LCD instrument pack is thumb operated via switches on the handlebars and features a comprehensive onboard computer, including an ambient air temperature indicator with ice warning. The instrumentation also comes pre-configured for Triumph’s tyre pressure monitoring system, available as an optional accessory.

A comprehensive range of accessories is headlined by high quality luggage developed especially for the Tiger Explorer. The two-box pannier system provides 60 litres of luggage space, while the top box offers a further 35 litres of capacity, enough for a full-face helmet.

a new level of excitement to the adventure touring class.

The thoroughly modern powerplant utilises a new ride-by-wire electronic throttle system, allowing Triumph engineers to endow the Tiger Explorer with a number of high-tech rider aids for added rider safety and comfort. Cruise control, traction control and switchable ABS are all standard fitment on the Tiger Explorer, while a tough shaft drive system has been developed for the Tiger Explorer, allowing virtually maintenance free touring. The latest Triumph has also been designed to go 10,000 miles between servicing – ideal for those long distance adventures.

Having been designed for day long, mile crunching capability, rider and pillion comfort are at the heart of the Tiger Explorer’s philosophy. The rider position is easily adjustable, with the standard saddle offering either an 840mm or 860mm seat height, with accessory high and low seat options also available, while both the screen and handlebar positions are highly adjustable to suit the individual rider preferences. The pillion hasn’t been forgotten about either, with a wide and comfortable seat equipped with large grab handles for comfort and security, while the 20 litre fuel tank ensures infrequent stops en route.

Triumph’s reputation for delivering best-in-class handling continues with the Tiger Explorer, which offers a combination of excellent low-speed balance and composed high speed capability, creating a dynamic ride over and above that expected from an adventure tourer.

The strong tubular steel trellis frame bears a strong visual resemblance to other models in the Triumph family, while the single-sided rear swingarm showcases the 17” 10-spoke rear wheel. Adjustable 46mm front forks allow the rider to tailor the Tiger Explorer to their individual needs and riding conditions, with the longtravel suspension and 19” front wheel giving the Tiger Explorer the capability to cope with unpaved roads. Stopping the Tiger Explorer are 305mm discs gripped by powerful four-piston calipers, mated to Triumph’s electronic ABS system, which can be switched off for riding on unpaved surfaces.

All-new instrumentation and switchgear is both comprehensive and intuitive. The LCD instrument pack is thumb operated via switches on the handlebars and features a comprehensive onboard computer, including an ambient air temperature indicator with ice warning, fuel consumption and average speed displays. The instrumentation also comes pre-configured for Triumph’s tyre pressure monitoring system, available as an optional accessory, while a codedkey immobiliser comes as standard equipment.

A comprehensive range of accessories is headlined by a high quality luggage range. The two-box pannier system provides 60 litres of luggage space, while the top box offers a further 35 litres of capacity, enough for a full-face helmet.

A best-in-class 950w generator has been fitted to the Tiger Explorer to facilitate the simultaneous running of multiple electrical accessories. Among the official accessories available are heated rider and pillion seats, heated grips, high power fog lights and a top box with integrated power supply for charging on the move.

The bike also comes fitted with a power socket situated close to the ignition, which can be used to power a GPS unit or items of heated clothing.

Three colour options are available for the 2012 Tiger Explorer: Sapphire Blue, Graphite and Phantom Black.
