2017 Triumph Tiger Explorer XRT
Zero's latest electric dual sport motorcycle makes its case for space in the garage.
Honda redesigns its Gold Wing from the ground up for 2018
Our new Tiger Explorer is packed full of new rider-focused technology to ensure superb handling stability and control that can be tailored to your personal preference, letting you get the most out of your ride, whether on road, trail or byway.
The range is divided in to two distinct model variants. The XR series are optimised for road use, while the XC models thrive in more rugged terrain, but both are equally happy when the roles are reversed.
The unique-in-class 1215cc triple engine delivers more power, more torque and improved fuel consumption, smoothly and progressively across the whole rev range.TRIUMPH SEMI ACTIVE SUSPENSION (TSAS)
The new Tiger Explorer’s performance is given a new level of dynamism on the XCx,XCA,XRx & XRt models with the addition of the ground-breaking Triumph Semi Active Suspension System. This allows the rider to electronically control the adjustment of the front and rear suspension damping, automatically adapting the rear shock absorber pre-load settings to reflect the terrain being covered and load carried, to provide optimal grip and drive in any situation.
The system uses an inertial measurement unit which incorporates 3 gyros and 3 accelerometers to continuously measure the bikes roll, pitch and yaw as well as longitudinal & lateral accelerations. The chassis central unit then uses this information, along with suspension position, swing arm position, wheel speed sensors, brake pressure and twist grip, to calculate the damping settings. All designed to deliver an engaged, confidence inspiring ride.RIDER MODES
The new Tiger Explorer family makes full use of Triumph’s impressive Rider Mode technology to offer a choice of up to five Rider Modes, four which are pre-set and one which can be programmed by the rider which alters the configuration of the bike to suit riding style, road and weather conditions.
Each Rider Mode changes the engine map, the levels of ABS and Traction Control, and where fitted, the damping set-up of the TSAS system and power.Rider Modes: ROAD
Maximises comfort and riding pleasure, particularly over long distances. The ABS and Traction Control settings ensure great stability and optimise braking on paved surfaces. The engine map is set to make the most of the smooth delivery of power over asphalt or similar surfaces. The TSAS (if fitted) will provide the optimal setting for road use.
Available on all Tiger Explorer modelsRider Modes: RAIN
Specifically developed for use over wet and slippery surfaces, the engine map reduces power, the Traction Control setting minimises rear wheel slip for enhanced control and the ABS setting prevents lock-up, avoiding uncontrolled skids. The TSAS (if fitted) features a soft set-up to improve grip.
Available on all Tiger Explorer modelsRider Modes: OFF-ROAD
Designed to enhance the ride and pleasure of covering broken ground, the Traction Control and ABS settings are adjusted for optimised off road performance. The TSAS system has been specifically calibrated for this mode, optimising the damping response for enhanced control in off-road conditions.
Available on Tiger Explorer XRx/XCX. XRT/XCA.Features may include:
- Electrically adjustable Touring screen
- Engine protection bars
