Being a Tiger, this is a bike built for adventure. Exploring new roads, even new countries and not stopping just because the road does.
But we made the Tiger Explorer for every rider that wants rugged dependability, long distance comfort, a powerful and torquey engine with an extended fuel range, fine handling and the ability to cope with unmade roads.
And we didn’t stop there. We added high levels of sophisticated equipment, including ABS, traction control and cruise control along with the special character that comes with a Triumph three cylinder engine, and handling so natural and easy the bike is just as much at home in town as on the tundra.
Standard Features May Include:Engine
We gave the Explorer a 1215cc three-cylinder engine. Built with the latest technology to be strong, dependable and have the low maintenance levels you need on long adventures. It has plenty of power and torque with a hefty 137PS at 9300rpm, and 121Nm at just 6400rpm. Useable torque low down in the rev range where you need it most.
Not only does the Tiger Explorer boast great power, its engine has an evocative character with a creamy power delivery and unmistakable Triumph growling soundtrack.Ride-By-Wire
The fuel injection is controlled by a ride-by-wire throttle system using computer control to give you the torque you need in the most efficient, predictable way.Double Overhead Cams
Double overhead camshafts operate the four valves per cylinder for an engine that does what it was made to do even when the bike is fully loaded with rider, passenger, a full complement of luggage and facing a steep mountain climb.Shaft Drive
We designed a rugged transmission comprising of a strong six-speed gearbox and an exceptionally tough shaft final drive. This gives you smooth power delivery yet is capable of dealing with the shocks and knocks it can face off-road. And, it hardly needs any maintenance, so you can get on with your ride without worrying about it.Frame
We built the tubular steel frame of the Tiger Explorer in the same style as other Triumphs. But it's made extra tough to deal with the stresses of off-road riding and on the road too, where you can load the Tiger Explorer heavily and still ride at high speeds or on badly maintained back roads in full control and comfort.Suspension
The suspension on the Tiger Explorer is built to cope with any kind of riding condition. We used tough 46mm forks at the front with an extended 190mm of travel, ideal for rough roads and long distance comfort. And at the rear, the single shock provides 194mm of travel and features a hydraulic remote preload adjuster and adjustable rebound damping.Brakes
Braking is looked after by a pair of 4-piston callipers and twin 305mm discs at the front backed up by a single rear disc, all controlled by our advanced, switchable electronic ABS system.Wheels and Tires
The 10-spoke, cast aluminium wheels, 17 inches diameter at the rear and 19 inches at the front, are perfect for off-road riding and effective at dealing with poor road surfaces.Handling
The Tiger Explorer is such an easy, natural handling bike. Be it low speed corners or fast sweepers, the Explorer shows outstanding handling manners. The wheelbase is long at 1530mm so you have plenty of room on board and excellent stability.
