2016 Triumph Tiger Explorer Variants Revealed at EICMA 2015


2016 Triumph Tiger Explorer unveiled at EICMA

Triumph has been slowly revealing their revamped and new models in the recent month’s one category at a time. It all started with the modern classics category which include the new Bonneville’s and then the roadster category with the new Speed Triples for the 2016 model year. Following the trend, Triumph have revealed their new and extended range of the adventure and touring category with the new Tiger Explorers. The 2016 Triumph Tiger Explorers range will have six new variants of which few were displayed at the 2015 EICMA in Milan.

The revamped adventure and touring bikes basically have two standard models, the Tiger Explorer XR and the Tiger Explorer XC. The XR is Triumph’s on-road ADV motorcycle whereas the XC is the off-road version. The on-road Triumph Tiger Explorer XR is the most affordable basic model which is extended by two new higher-spec machines, the XRx and XRT. Likewise, the base model off-road Triumph Tiger Explorer XC has two new higher-spec off-roaders called the XCx and XCA.

Triumph has not yet released the complete detailed information about the new Tiger Explorer range so as to differentiate between the variants. But since the Tiger 800’s have pretty much the same naming trend, we can pretty much assume what will be on offer. All the new six models share the same 1,215 cc three-cylinder engine with torque-assist clutch and a low maintenance final shaft drive. The transmission is 6-speed with a tall final drive for making cruising long distances easy and also fuel efficient. The range also features Brembo radially mounted monobloc callipers as standard on all variants.

The new 2016 Tiger Explorer range comes with WP suspension where even the base models feature standard fully adjustable ones. However, the four top models, XRT, XRx, XCx and XCA are equipped with WP’s semi-active suspension which is controlled by Triumph Semi Active Suspension (TSAS) system. The complete range features the Bosch MSC stability control system which we commonly know as the cornering ABS along with traction control. The XRT and XCA variants feature the Hill Hold Control in addition to the above mentioned features.

All the complex electronics mean that the new 2016 Triumph Tiger Explorers will also have user selectable riding modes. There are five different modes available in the entire range of which Road and Rain modes are available as standard on all the six models. The XRx and XCx models feature an additional off-road rider mode. In addition to these three modes, we have Sport and Rider Configurable modes which are available only on the XRT and XCA variants.

The extensive range of the 2016 Triumph Tiger Explorers will offer great flexibility in choice for the ADV customers. We hope these new revamped models also show up on the Indian outlets in the near future.
