With a whole pack of extras and neat touches the Tiger Explorer XC has an extra rugged style.
All its basics have been thoroughly proven on the Tiger Explorer. Like the 1215cc three-cylinder engine with its broad spread of torque, shaft drive, the long fuel range. Then there’s the class-leading handling and the genuine off-road ability.
You still get the high levels of sophisticated rider aids too, like switchable ABS, traction control and cruise control.
On top of all this you get unique spoked wheels for added off-road capability and other equipment such as a sump guard, fog lights, and hand guards to add to your adventure.
Standard Features May Include:Engine
Like the Explorer, the Tiger Explorer XC gets our big, proven 1215cc three-cylinder engine. Built with modern technology to be strong, dependable and have the low maintenance levels you need on long adventures. You can get plenty of torque and power from the Tiger Explorer XC, a hefty 137PS and 121Nm. And, not just that, it’s useable torque low down in the rev range where you need it.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 for the Tiger Explorer XC. 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.Ride-By-Wire
Designed to be as tough as the rest of the Tiger Explorer XC, 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.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 aluminium rim, wire-spoke wheels on the Tiger Explorer XC are lightweight and highly resilient, 17 inches diameter at the rear and 19 inches at the front, and come fitted with tubeless tires.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.
