2017 Triumph Tiger Explorer
Featuring an all-new 1215cc triple motor, Triumph opted for power and performance over weight when it came to their new power plant. Water-cooled and featuring a ride-by-wire throttle, the triple produces a claimed 135bhp with 89.3lbft of torque and has an I-shaped balancer shaft (I-shaped to reduce weight) to ensure everything is nice and refined. Running a hydraulic clutch and a back-torque limiter to eliminate the chances of damage to the sprag-clutch when the bike is started, the Explorer has impressively long service intervals of 10,000-miles with the valve-clearances at 20,000-miles.
l though the Tiger’s tank tends to splay the rider’s legs wide, Triumph were clever to give the Explorer an adjustable riding position with the seat height varying between 840 and 860mm and the screen and bars also variable in their height. It’s a very comfortable bike over distance.
Our first experience with the Explorer showed that Triumph is very much on top of the adventure segment with a bike that is capable of comfort, speed and riding thrills in complete safety. And no doubt it will make for a viable global traveller when tarmac stops and adventures truly begin.
