Apart from the Triumph Tiger 1200, Amit Sadh also owns many other superbikes such as the Triumph Tigeer XRx 800, the Ducati Hypermotard and the Ducati Multistrada 1260. While most actors don’t go beyond the occasional Sunday ride on their expensive superbikes, Amit Sadh has bucked the trend. The actor has been gone on multi-day road trips on his superbikes to locales such as Ladakh and Goa. He’s even done international road trips, with the most prominent one being a trip in the United States, on a Ducati Multistrada.

Earlier this year, in May, Triumph Motorcycles launched its flagship adventure motorcycle – the Tiger 1200. Prices for the Triumph Tiger 1200 start from Rs. 21.4 lakh for the base GT Pro trim, while the Rally Pro, GT Explorer and Rally Explorer trims are pricier – at Rs. 22.5 lakh, Rs. 23.06 lakh and Rs. 24.16 lakh respectively. All prices represent on-road Delhi figures, and the Triumph Tiger 1200 superbike range is fully imported into India through the completely built unit (CBU) route.

The Triumph Tiger 1200 is an all-new motorcycle, and nearly none of the parts on the new model are shared with the older Tiger 1200. From the frame to the engine and the digital infotainment display, everything on the 2022 Tiger 1200 is new. While quite heavy at nearly 250 kilograms, the Tiger 1200 has received a full 25 kilogram weight saving compared to the previous model.

The superbike, which sits in the ADV segment with rivals such as the Ducati Multistrada 1260, the BMW R 1250 GS and the Harley Davidson Pan America, is powered by a 1,160cc inline-triple engine with a T-plane crankshaft. This engine makes 150 Bhp of peak power at 9,000 rpm and 130 Nm of peak torque at 7,000 rpm, and is paired with a 6 speed manual gearbox with a slipper clutch as standard. A shaft-drive handles torque transmission to the rear wheel, and this set-up is said to be nearly maintenance-free compared to the conventional chain drive.

Key highlights on the Tiger 1200 include radar lane change and blind spot warning, cornering ABS,  7-inch Bluetooth-equipped TFT display, tyre pressure monitoring system, electronic suspension, six riding modes, bi-directional quick shifter, hill hold, cruise control, heated grips and seats, keyless operation. While the Rally variants of the Tiger 1200 are off-road focused, the GT trims are road biased. While the GT Pro and Rally Pro trims get 20 liter fuel tanks, the Rally Explorer and GT Explorer trims get 30 liter fuel tanks. The Tiger 1200 gets a 3 year, unlimited kms warranty, and service intervals stand at 1 year/16,000 Kms.
