The Triumph Tiger Explorer was a dual-sports British machine presented at the 2011 EICMA Show, marketed as Triumph Tiger 1200 since 2017. Two versions were available, the Tiger 1200 GT and Tiger 1200 Rally.
Both machines had similar specifications, while the Rally version was a more off-road-oriented machine due to its wire-spoke wheels instead of the cast aluminum ones found on the GT series. In addition, both models were powered by a 1,215cc straight-three engine with a six-speed transmission and a final shaft drive.
In 2023, the British motorcycle manufacturer launched the Triumph 1200 GT Explorer, a machine loaded with top-end technology, delivering excellent comfort, practicality, and capability to the adventure motorcycle category.
In the performance department, the 2023 Triumph 1200 GT Explorer had its heartbeat set by a 1,160cc liquid-cooled inline three-cylinder engine with a Multipoint Sequential Electronic Fuel Injection system, boasting 147 hp at 9,000 rpm and 130 Nm (95 lb-ft) torque with maximum strength at 7,000 rpm.
The bike's suspension was handled by a 49 mm semi-active Showa USD fork on the front and a semi-active Showa shock absorber on the rear with automatic electronic preload adjustment.
As for the braking performance, the bike packed two 320 mm floating discs with Brembo M4.30 Stylema monoblock radial calipers on the front wheel and a 282 mm Brembo single-piston caliper on the rear wheel.
The 2023 Triumph 1200 GT Explorer was for sale with an MSRP starting at $23,595.
