A Triumph Trifecta: Bigger, badder Dualie for Blokes with Stones

October 26 2011

Triumph will be celebrating its 110th anniversary in 2012 on the heels of a record sales year in 2011. To usher in the milestone year, the company says it will have its strongest ever model range, which will include three new models. Spearheading the new model introductions is the biggest and baddest adventure-touring rig that Triumph has ever built, the aptly named Tiger Explorer.


The Explorer will rule the performance roost when it comes to big displacement dual-sports according to Triumph. At the motorcycle’s core is a new three-cylinder engine that is said to displace “in excess of 1,200 cc” and will feature ride-by-wire fuelling, cruise control, ABS that can be switched off, and traction control – all as standard equipment. Chassis highlights include its use of a steel frame for durability and cast alloy wheels, a 19 inch front and a 17 inch rear, which is coupled to a shaft drive and a single-sided swingarm.

A Triumph strong suite over recent years has been the myriad accessories the company offers alongside each of its models. Naturally then, Triumph will be providing Explorer buyers with a large number of options for their bikes, which will include hard and soft luggage fitments, taller and shorter seat heights, and heated riding gear and electrical accessories that will take advantage of the Explorer’s big-capacity 950 watt generator.


Triumph will reveal the full details of their 2012 line-up at EICMA on November 8, 2011.
