Triumph motorcycles were late to launch their new products yesterday at the EICMA 2015. But, better late then never. The company came up with six new variants of its adventure ready Triumph Tiger Explorer 1200 according to the system already set by the younger sibling the Tiger 800s. Each of the six variants will offer a different combination of adventure and touring. The XC will be the adventure based base variant and the XR will be the street-biased model. The XC will be accompanied by XCx and XCa. Similarly the XR will have a more premium XRt and the XRx.

All these models will be powered by the 1215 cc triple engine featuring a drive shaft that according to Triumph will help in providing more power and a linear torque curve across the rev range. The base XC and XR variants will get a standard switchable ABS and traction control while the four upgraded variants will come with cornering ABS and traction control that is controlled by the Inertial Measurement Unit which analyses the speed and lean angle of the bike while controlling ABS and traction control accordingly.

The 2016 Triumph Tiger Explorers also get an electronically adjustable windscreen and some styling updates to give the bikes a more muscular look. The new bikes will also get a better supply of air and current.  Though, Triumph has not provided any detail on the differences between the different variants, we expect it to come early next year along with the prices. The new bikes are not expected to land on Indian shores anytime soon.
