Using 'Explorer' for a gen 3 Tiger 1200 is going to confuse punters even more than Triumph already have.
Except, the decal is on a Gen2 Explorer, isn't it?   :034:

Yes Cap'n the OP has a 2015 TEx.  So 'Explorer' is eminently suitable for that.

I want one that says “1215 TEx” or “1300 TEx” or ??!
Everyone else rounds up on displacement, why not us? ;-)

Just to confirm to avoid confusion, the decal was specifically chosen to say 1200 Explorer as my bike is a 1200 Explorer Gen 2 as one or two have keenly spied.

Just goes to show how different we all can be.
There is another thread where T1200 owners & wannabees are wondering how they can remove the Tiger 1200 logo on the tank.  (Can't.)
I'm used to it now, but prefer a 'naked' tank.

Just edit the numbers so you can have a 5211 Tex, that will blow some people's minds.  :007:

"I'll be back" springs to mind! I wonder if they will be doing the Adventure or Expedition luggage set with that?
