    Triumph to launch 1200cc Tiger Explorer

    The bike is set to be revealed to the world's press at the EICMA show in Milan in November and later at the NEC motorcycle show.

    Taking its styling from the firm's popular Tiger 800, the new Tiger Explorer's 1200cc engine allegedly produces 135bhp and will supercede the current Tiger 1050. It's expected to be on sale in the UK very early in 2012.

    Looks better than Triumphs Tiger 800 supermoto and its similar to BMW GS1200(look wise some areas).

      The 800 XC exceeds in very department and much better than the BMW 800s.
      Will this take the majestic 1200GS?

      the bike looks sleak for a 1200CC.. and not the actual bike pic

        The grab rails look like the ones on the FZ bikes. The beak seems good though.

          Just wondering if this is the new phase in the indian market... the MX class! what with the BMWs, then the KTM 350 and now this one!!

          makes me suspect if its got anything to do with the rapidly deteriorating condition of the roads in India!!

            Those who were saying that this engine will make its way to Speed Triple were wrong, alteast for 2012 model.

            THERE'S long been a simple trick in the Italian motorcycle industry. Take a bike, add high-end Brembos and Ohlins kit to it plus special paint, lightweight wheels and a smattering of carbon fibre and market it as an expensive 'R' version.

            And now Triumph has clearly cottoned on to the same idea, following the Street Triple R and Daytona 675R with this, the Speed Triple R.

            Ohlins? Check. NIX30 forks and TTX36 shock, to be precise.

            Brembos? Check. Monoblocs, too. Nice.

            Paint? Well, a splash of red on the subframe and some 'R' graphics.

            Lightweight wheels? Oh yes. PVM five-spokes.

            Carbon fibre? Yup. A little bit anyway.

            Engine-wise, nothing is changed, so the performance will be much the same as the stock bike in a straight line.

            This "R" model is almost like a Ducati! Carbon Fibre, Monoblock brakes, damn! Anyways, not that Triumph as a brand is any less than the competition.

                Anyone knows when Triumph will make official India entry. I can almost smell Bonneville.
