Today with the launch of the all- new Triumph Tiger Explorer XCx launched at Rs. 18,75,000/- in India Mr. Vimal Sumbly, Managing Director, Triumph Motorcycles India Pvt Ltd. commented “The Triumph Tiger family has been pivotal in building the adventure riding category and culture in India. With over 800 customers in the country Triumph does not just deliver great motorcycles, we also create an ecosystem in which the rider is equipped with the skill sets to ride deftly and safely. Our initiatives like the Triumph Tiger Trails and our Tiger Training Academies stand testament to this. As the pioneer in this category, the remarkable Tiger Explorer XCx with its state-of-the-art features and rider focused technology is suited for both on and off road riding, ensuring superb stability and control. It is a bike that allows riders to tailor their desired adventure, to go anywhere and everywhere from the daily commute to the corners of the earth.”
The new Triumph Explorer XCx is designed to excel off-road. The XCx model is more than capable of performing in any environment. It offers an unprecedented level of equipment and technology to provide a motorcycle completely prepared for any adventure – no matter the distance or destination.
The Tiger Explorer XCx features a 1215cc triple engine, unique in the large capacity adventure segment, delivering its power through a final shaft drive. The triple engine’s power is delivered smoothly and progressively across the rev and speed ranges through its linear torque curve. A torque-assisted clutch makes the clutch action incredibly light, in turn making both long distances and stop-start urban riding less demanding on the rider. The engine performance is also enhanced through a new exhaust system, with a distinctive resonant note.
The Triumph Tiger Explorer XCx in detail
The new Tiger Explorer features a host of technological upgrades with a particular emphasis on state-of-the-art active technology to ensure superb stability and control.
These features include:
- Triumph Semi-Active Suspension
- Corner optimised switchable ABS and Traction Control
- The introduction of Rider Modes, including a rider programmable mode
The new Tiger Explorer’s overall performance is given a new level of dynamism through the use of WP adjustable suspension on the two entry level models. The other four models feature the ground-breaking Triumph Semi Active Suspension system. This allows the rider to electronically control the adjustment of the front and rear suspension damping, automatically adapting the rear shock absorber pre-load settings to reflect the terrain being covered and providing optimal grip and drive in any situation.
To give the rider the handling, control and response they want to negotiate well-made roads and broken terrain in all conditions, the Tiger Explorer offers as standard multi-channel switchable ABS and traction control on the XC model.
The Explorer features an Inertial Measurement Unit that, through a series of strategically positioned sensors, monitors and responds to the bike’s movement status, calculates the lean angle of the bikes and uses this measurement to ensure greater stability by optimising the performance of the ABS and traction control systems.
Add to this the choice of different Rider Modes –Sports/ Comfort/ Normal– which alters the configuration of the bike to suit riding style, road and weather conditions.
A new engine with more power, improved handling, rider and active rider-focused technology packaged in the bike with a contemporary look and style that is distinctly its own. Featuring sharp new lines giving a stylish and muscular look and combining to deliver enhanced rider and passenger thermal comfort. The Tiger Explorer XCx introduce a first-in-class electrically adjustable screen that allows the rider to constantly tailor aero protection and comfort whilst riding.
