A New Triumph Tiger Explorer has been seen during tests.
UK’s roads are full of next generation Triumph motorcycles. After we saw spy photos of the standard version of the Bonneville model, Visordown caught on camera the next generation of the Triumph Tiger Explorer. The adventure bike is the most expensive in Triumph’s range and also the best-selling model in the United Kingdom for the british motorcycle firm.
By the looks of it, the new bike has the same engine and frame as the current model. What seems to be revised are the brakes, suspension and electronics package. As far as suspension goes, Triumph seems to have used the same WP suspension like KTM’s 1290 Super Adventure. This means it is also semi-active. Brakes have Brembo radial calipers instead of Nissins found on the actual model. Most likely they feature cornering ABS, a must have on all adventure bikes (KTM has cornering ABS and for 2016, BMW has fitted the system to the R1200GS).
The new Triumph Tiger Explorer has an electric screen by the looks of it and probably new instruments. Among the styling changes, the new version has revised side panels and nose bodywork. Just like in the case of the Bonneville family, the current version of Triumph Tiger Explorer is listed on the company’s website as a 2016 model. Perhaps, the new version will come in 2017.
