With the addition of the all-new 2012 Triumph Tiger Explorer, the Triumph Tiger range grows to three models for the 2012 model year. The versatility of the 2012 Triumph Tiger range means that riders can enjoy adventure riding both off-road and on, on a bike that is not only distinctive to look at, but to hear. All models of the 2012 Triumph Tiger bikes are equipped with a three-cylinder engine to provide that engine sound unique to Triumph.
The brand new 2012 Triumph Tiger Explorer comes equipped with a new Triple engine, as well as plenty of new technology. The 1215cc engine is coupled with a ride-by-wire throttle that provides one of the highest power outputs in its class, as well as extremely smooth shifting. A two-inch by 2.5-inch LCD display provides all the information a rider needs, and is easily accessible through the use of thumb switches mounted on the handlebars. Traction control and cruise control are standard features to improve the safety of the ride, and reduce rider fatigue. Various saddle, screen, and handlebar positions ensure rider comfort for riders of all sizes.
The 2012 Triumph Tiger 800 provides the right bike for those adventure riders that spend most of their time in the urban environment. The upright seating position and steel frame provide a bike that is highly maneuverable. The 799cc triple engine provides class-leading torque, and the suspension is more than able to handle most road surfaces. For those who want to get off the beaten track, the 2012 Triumph Tiger 800XC has been adjusted for more off-road riding than the Tiger 800, including a different suspension to handle those rougher road conditions.
For those riders who like a little adventure when they are out touring, the 2012 Triumph Tiger 1050SE touring bike will appeal. For the launch of the 2012 model, the Triumph Tiger 1050SE has a new more refined look that includes tapered handlebars, black wheels and components, and new decals. The riding position has also been revised so the bike has a sportier, more ergonomic feel, while still providing an excellent vantage point for maneuvering, whether in traffic or out on the twists and turns of the highway. Rider comfort is guaranteed over the long haul due to the adjustable saddle, handlebars, and screen.
