Triumph Releases Tiger Explorer XC for Touring Market


Triumph Motorcycles increases its range in the adventure touring market with the launch of the new Tiger Explorer XC. With a nod to the styling cues of the award-winning Tiger 800 XC, the new Tiger Explorer XC gains a number of enhancements to further heighten its long haul adventure touring appeal.

Key to the rugged look of the XC are the new aluminum-rimmed, steel spoked wheels. Maintaining the 19-inch front and 17-inch rear of the Explorer, the new Triumph-designed spoked wheels retain the Explorer’s incredible dynamic handling and provide the additional benefit of tubeless tires, which eliminate the need for an extensive tool kit.

The adventure look is further enhanced with the standard fit of some additional features, designed to increase comfort and confidence during any adventure. The high-impact hand guards offer warmth and protection to hands and controls, while the high-performance 55-watt dual fog lights deliver increased visibility for those late rides. Tough 22-millimeter steel tube engine bars and a heavy-gauge, aluminum belly guard combine to offer maximum protection when the going gets more challenging. For riders wishing to further tailor their XC, a range of 54 additional genuine Triumph accessories offers even more customization options.


The Tiger Explorer XC is powered by Triumph’s shaft-driven 1215cc triple, which produces 135bhp with 89 foot-pounds of torque. Other features include cruise and traction control, switchable ABS and a virtually maintenance-free shaft drive. All this is confidently backed up by 10,000-mile service intervals and an unlimited mileage two-year warranty.

The Triumph Tiger Explorer XC will make its international debut at Intermot in Cologne, Germany, on Oct. 2, 2012. Test rides at Triumph dealerships will be available in April 2013.
