Triumph Tiger 1200 Updated With Active Preload Reduction

Triumph's lowest-ever Tiger 1200.

A new Active Preload Reduction was developed to reduce the rear suspension preload as the Tiger 1200 slows, allowing the seat heights to be reduced. 

For the GT, GT Pro and GT Explorer, there are currently two seat height settings — 33.46 inches and 34.25 inches — while for the Rally Pro and Rally Explorer, these are 34.44 inches and 35.23 inches. Through the accessory-fit low seat option, riders are already able to lower the seat position by an additional 0.78 inches, giving a lowest seat height of 32.67 inches on the GT family and 33.66 inches on the Rally family.

The new Active Preload Reduction feature allows these seat heights to be reduced further. Depending on the combined weight of the rider, pillion and luggage, this could lower the riding height by up to 0.78 inches when the motorcycle comes to a standstill, offering the rider greater ease and confidence. 

New customers will be able to access this new minimum preload feature by simply pressing the Home button on the switch cube for one second. 

Triumph Chief Product Officer Steve Sargent said, “This new feature can be enabled on the fly, lowering the center of gravity at slower speeds, making it even more accessible, offering riders more confidence at slow speeds and better contact with the ground as they come to a stop.” 

There will be no upgrade fee for existing customers to access the new feature; however, standard dealership labor rates will apply for the service of the motorcycle.
