    The Explorer XC (which essentially means Cross Country) is an all kitted out version of the Explorer 1200 to take it off tarmac. It also comes in a Matt Khakhi Green which is the Military Green, in my opinion, the most purposeful colour for this bike. It looks absolutely delicious in it. I have ridden the Ducati Multistrada and the Suzuki V-Strom extensively and I can vouch for the fact that the Triumph Explorer 1200 XC looks different than most adventure bikes out there at the moment. It is not as sporty or beautiful as the Multistrada (or powerful) but it is much more exciting than the V-Strom 1000 which tends to have frame flex at high speeds on the highway.

    The look and feel of the 1200 XC oozes quality and finesse with elements like auxiliary lights and panniers bringing the owner one step closer to a RTW tour ambition! The ride was smooth and the inline three cylinders configuration gives it a unique note at higher revs. With 137 Bhp @ 9300rpm and 121 Nm of torque @ 6400rpm, it is a bit rev hungry but has got enough mettle for the innumerable overtaking manoeuvres required to navigate Indian highways.
