Triumph Tiger 1200 Explorer

Triumph Tiger 1200 Explorer EC Adventure Riding
The TRIUMPH Tiger 1200 Explorer 2015 is an interesting all-road touring motorcycle. The British manufacture came back into the all-road segment 2011 with the TRIUMPH Tiger 800 and the 800XC models, but the very next year they launched the first edition of the basic TRIUMPH Tiger 1200 Explorer. The Tiger Explorer is primarily designed for urban touring on tarmac roads and light all-road riding, basically due to the relative low ground clearance, average size fuel tank, overall weight and cast aluminium wheels among other smaller details. The TRIUMPH Tiger 1200 Explorer 2015 is also an excellent everyday bike. The nature of the triple engine is sporty, the bike handles very well and good ergonomics with adjustments translate to functionality and enjoyment. Experience it for yourself!
