MY16 Tiger Explorer Family

Our Tiger Explorer family has been conceived, designed and built to deliver the ultimate go anywhere, do anything transcontinental touring motorcycle for every adventure rider, wherever they ride.

intro

Everything feels right with the world

Our new Tiger Explorer is packed full of new rider-focused technology to ensure superb handling stability and control that can be tailored to your personal preference, letting you get the most out of your ride, whether on road, trail or byway.

The range is divided in to two distinct model variants. The XR series are optimised for road use, while the XC models thrive in more rugged terrain, but both are equally happy when the roles are reversed.

The unique-in-class 1215cc triple engine delivers more power, more torque and improved fuel consumption, smoothly and progressively across the whole rev range.

Technology

Triumph Semi-Active Suspension (TSAS)

The new Tiger Explorer’s performance is given a new level of dynamism on the XCX, XCA, XRX & XRT models with the addition of 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 load carried, to provide optimal grip and drive in any situation.

The system uses an inertial measurement unit which incorporates 3 gyros and 3 accelerometers to continuously measure the bike's roll, pitch and yaw as well as longitudinal & lateral accelerations. The chassis central unit then uses this information, along with suspension position, swing arm position, wheel speed sensors, brake pressure and twist grip, to calculate the damping settings. All designed to deliver an engaged, confidence inspiring ride.

Optimised Cornering ABS & Traction Control

To give the rider the handling, control and response they want, when negotiating well-made roads and broken terrain in all conditions, the Tiger Explorer offers, as standard, multi-channel switchable ABS and traction control on the entry level XR model. The other four models come with cornering-optimised ABS and traction control, to ensure superb stability even when approaching the most challenging apex.

The XRx, XRT XCx, AND XCA, models all feature 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.

Hill Hold Control

The Tiger Explorer XRT and Tiger Explorer XCA offer a hill hold control feature that prevents the motorcycle rolling back or forward when setting off on a steep incline or decline. This feature is particularly beneficial when the motorcycle is fully loaded or carrying a passenger.

The feature is activated by the rider pulling sharply on the front brake while stationary. The system then maintains the pressure when the front brake is released, to hold the bike stationary without having to use the front or rear brake. The hill hold function simply deactivates automatically by riding off normally.

Riding Modes

Riding Modes

The Tiger Explorer family makes full use of Triumph’s impressive Riding Mode technology to offer a choice of up to five Riding Modes, four which are pre-set and one which can be programmed by the rider – which alters the configuration of the bike to suit riding style, road and weather conditions.

Each Riding Mode changes the engine map, the levels of ABS and Traction Control, and where fitted, the damping set-up of the TSAS system and power.

Riding Modes: ROAD

Maximises comfort and riding pleasure, particularly over long distances. The ABS and Traction Control settings ensure great stability and optimise braking on paved surfaces. The engine map is set to make the most of the smooth delivery of power over asphalt or similar surfaces. The TSAS (if fitted) will provide the optimal setting for road use.

Available on all Tiger Explorer models

Riding Modes: RAIN

Specifically developed for use over wet and slippery surfaces, the engine map reduces power, the Traction Control setting minimises rear wheel slip for enhanced control and the ABS setting prevents lock-up, avoiding uncontrolled skids. The TSAS (if fitted) features a soft set-up to improve grip.

Available on all Tiger Explorer models

Riding Modes: OFF-ROAD

Designed to enhance the ride and pleasure of covering broken ground, the Traction Control and ABS settings are adjusted for optimised off road performance. The TSAS system has been specifically calibrated for this mode, optimising the damping response for enhanced control in off-road conditions.

Available on Tiger Explorer models XRX/XCX. XRT/XCA

Riding Modes: SPORT

Exploits the full potential of the Tiger Explorer’s triple engine by providing a more direct throttle response. The setting of the ABS ensures excellent braking performance on paved surfaces, while the dedicated setting of the traction control allows increased rear wheel slip compared to the road setting, for a more dynamic ride. The TSAS system provides firmer damping to take on and conquer the most demanding roads.

Available on Tiger Explorers XRT/XCA

Riding Modes: RIDER CONFIGURABLE

The perfect setting for riders who wish to configure the ride to their own style, performance and enjoyment.

Engine

Triple Engine

At the heart of the Explorer is a unique 12 valve, 1215cc in-line three cylinder unit that generates incredible wall of linear torque 123NM at 6200 rpm and in fact 139ps at 9300rpm of power from the largest capacity engine in the segment.

To utilise its power, the Tiger Explorer uses a hydraulic torque assist clutch to reduce lever effort and long-time rider fatigue. All of the Tiger Explorer models feature a 6 speed gearbox in which the top gear is set high to make cruising long distances both easy and fuel efficient. Power is transmitted to the rear wheel through a low-maintenance final shaft drive.

Exhaust

The Tiger Explorer features an exhaust system that not only helps with the engine performance and achieving compliance with the Euro 4 emissions standard, but also gives the family a distinctive, resonant exhaust note unique to a Triumph triple engine.

Chassis

Chassis

The chassis used for our Tiger Explorer has been designed to add a exceptional level of dynamism to adventure riding. The inclusion of market leading adjustable WP suspension provides an enviable balance of comfort and control on the entry level models which is further enhanced by Triumph’s Semi-Active Suspension system on the XRX, XRT, XCX & XCA 

The addition of the technologically advanced, radially mounted Brembo monobloc calipers, is a further demonstration of our focus on agility, control and performance in every aspect of the chassis, suspension and braking systems.

Styling

Bodywork

Contemporary crisp lines, technically crafted details and distinctive styling give the Tiger Explorer a tough, assertive and commanding stance. It displays a modern beauty and proportioned muscularity that portrays the confidence and capability you would expect from Triumph.

Cockpit

The cockpit has been developed with one thing in mind, the rider. Refined ergonomics, updated switch gear and the latest LCD display ensures ease of use even at speed.

Electrically Adjustable Screen

All models feature a first-in-class electrically adjustable screen that allows the rider to constantly tailor aero-protection and comfort whilst riding.

The Tiger Explorer XRT and Tiger Explorer XCA have the taller touring screen as standard.

Comfort

The seating, foot peg and bar position has been developed to ensure maximum rider comfort, whether sitting down putting in the miles, or standing up taking off-road in their stride. The inclusion of heated grips on all but the XR, as well as heated rider and passenger seats on the XRT and XCA, ensure year round, all climate comfort for the miles ahead.
