The Triumph Tiger Explorer

Triumph Motorcycles has confirmed the retail prices of its new-for-2012 models – the Tiger Explorer and Speed Triple R – with a focus on offering customers a high-specification package at a competitive price.
The Tiger Explorer is Triumph’s first entry into the large-capacity adventure touring sector and features a class-leading specification as standard. The all-new 1215cc three-cylinder powerplant delivers a best-in-class 137 BHP, while other key features of the new model include the standard fitment of ABS, cruise control, traction control and a durable shaft drive unit.
The Tiger Explorer goes on sale from late March, priced at a very competitive £11,149 otr. A limited number of launch edition models, packed with a host of additional accessories such as an adjustable touring screen, fog lights, hand guards and engine protection bars, are available for £11,999.
Joining the Tiger Explorer in the 2012 range is the Speed Triple R, a premium version of Triumph’s iconic Speed Triple. Taking the already class-leading Speed Triple as its base, the ‘R’ version employs even higher-specification chassis
components to take handling to yet another level. With MotoGP-developed Ohlins suspension front and rear, Brembo monobloc brakes and lightweight forged aluminium wheels, as well as sporty new colours and graphics, the Speed
Triple R represents excellent value for money at just £11,299 otr. Availability in UK dealers is late February 2012. A launch edition featuring ABS, fly screen, belly pan, gel seat and tyre pressure monitoring, is also available at a price of £12,499 otr.
Guy Masters, general manager of Triumph UK, said: “Since we unveiled these new models at Motorcycle Live in the UK last November, reaction from the press and riders alike has been fantastic. Dealers are already reporting high levels of
interest in both models, with a healthy level of pre-orders confirmed.
“While our home market continues to be a challenging environment for new bike sales, both the Explorer and Speed Triple R carry an excellent specification and offer great value for money. Triumph continues to invest strongly into new
model development and is committed to producing high quality, exciting bikes for a discerning market.”
