2013 Triumph Tiger Explorer XC announced
Triumph have announced an addition to their Adventure Touring range with the launch of the new Tiger Explorer XC.
The bike was unveiled at Triumph Live, the World’s largest celebration of all things Triumph, being held at Mallory Park in the UK.
Clearly taking it's styling from the Tiger 800 XC variant, the new Tiger Explorer XC gets several enhancements that add to it's adventure touring appeal. The bike will be available in Khaki Green complemented by new aluminum rimmed, steel spoked wheels. Adventure enthusiasts will welcome the 19 inch front wheel which has the new Triumph-designed spoked wheels that retain the Explorer’s incredible dynamic handling and provide the additional benefit of tubeless tires.
The bike also comes equiped with Adventure Hand Guards that offer warmth and protection to hands, high performance 55W Dual Fog lights, tough 22mm steel tube engine protection bars, and an aluminium belly guard. A further 54 accessories will be available from the official Triumph range so that riders can customise their bike to their liking.
The XC is still powered by the same shaft-driven 1215cc triple in the standard bike. Producing 135bhp with 89ft.lbs of torque, the engine offer all the power a rider could need. Add into the equation cruise and traction control, switchable ABS and a virtually maintenance-free shaft drive, and you have the perfect combination for long distance adventure touring. Add to this a two year warranty and 10,000 mile service intervals and the bike becomes a leader in the top end advebnture bike market.
Further appearances of the bike are expected at the Intermot motorcycle show in Germany in October.
If you want one then it's expected to be available in the spring of 2013 with test rides being available at Triumph dealerships in April 2013.
Exact price is to be advised but is probably expected to be several hundred pounds more than the standard mode depending on specification.
