Triumph Tiger 1200 Rally Explorer 2023 Specs

This in from Triumph Motorcycles…

Now, with the launch of the Tiger 1200 generation, Triumph once again sets its sights on raising the bar and resetting the benchmark in the large capacity adventure world, with a line-up that represents nothing less than a complete transformation in weight, handling, triple-powered performance, character and Tiger style.

The Tiger 1200 GT family has been engineered to become the benchmark in large-capacity road-focused adventure motorcycles, with a specification, performance and technology to match, including an innovation in Blind Spot Radar technology on both Explorers. With the two Rally machines, these truly live up to their name with genuine off-road capability and all-road focus, courtesy of their 21” tubeless spoked front wheel and a chassis designed for the toughest terrain. For those really looking to go the distance and take on the world, an Explorer version of both the GT and the Rally adds a further 50% of riding range with a 30-litre tank capacity.

When the first modern Tiger hit the streets in 2010, it ignited the passions of a new generation of adventure riders and created a bloodline of triple-powered machines that have gone on to define the middleweight adventure motorcycle category and set the benchmark for handling, character, quality and all-round riding capability.

With the launch of the award-winning Tiger 900 in 2019, Triumph redefined what ‘great’ looks like and rides like, with the innovative T-plane triple engine and a revolution in handling.

Handling and comfort are a huge part of the Tiger success story, and when you ride this new generation you’ll know immediately that it has that “just right” feeling, and that it handles in a way that a large capacity Tiger has never done before. With a narrower fuel tank shaped for more confident footing and an ideal riding position, together with a low centre of gravity, the Tiger 1200 is equally at home threading through the rush hour traffic as it is tackling motorway miles and remote trails.

The Tiger 1200’s advanced Showa semi-active suspension has been further enhanced, offering the rider greater ease and confidence. A new Active Preload Reduction feature has been developed to reduce the rear suspension preload as the Tiger 1200 slows, allowing the seat heights to be reduced.

This new feature is accessible by simply pressing the ‘Home’ button on the switch cube for one second.

Sophistication with strength. Setting a new standard, the new 30 litre tank Rally Explorer is built for the big adventure.

Now including a new Active Preload Reduction feature for advanced suspension preload adjustment.
