On pavement, the Explorer is impressive. It’s comfortable, sophisticated and powerful. The Tiger is propelled by the familiar shaft final drive 1,215cc three-cylinder engine, but with more horsepower (139 hp at 9,300 rpm, up 4 hp) and torque (90 pound-feet at 6,200 rpm, up 1) as measured at the crank. That doesn’t sound like much, but the efforts to broaden the torque curve have given the big triple more oomph between 3,000 and 6,500. The ‘16 also carries a substantial power gap from 7,500 rpm to the 9,500-rpm redline. Fuel efficiency is also increased by a claimed five percent. A new, smaller exhaust enhances performance and sound while helping meet stringent Euro 4 compliance. Plus it sounds and feels like a big triple.
