Triumph has added another adventure bike to their portfolio, the Tiger Explorer XCx. This bike joins the already existing Tiger model range consisting of the the 800 XCA, the 800 XCx, the 800 XR and the 800 XRx. The bike will be available as a CBU and it will be priced at Rs 18.75 lakhs, ex-showroom India.
The bike is powered by a 1,215 cc inline 3-cylinder engine which produces 137 Bhp and 123 Nm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. To have a more sporty ride, the exhaust setup has been improved.
The bike is equipped with a lot of tech. For starters, it now gets a semi-active suspension, ABS with traction control and 3 riding modes as well. The semi-active suspension means that the rider can adjust both the preload as well as the damping. All this is done electronically. Like we mentioned above, the rider can choose between 3 riding modes, which are normal, comfort and sports, just like it is on most cars. The bike is also equipped with an electrically adjustable screen. While the tachometer is an analogue unit, the vehicle does have a LCD display for all other information. Since this is an adventure bike, it has heated grips, for those who wish to take their bikes to the hills. In addition to this, the bike will have cruise control, fog lights, hand guards for protection of rider, sump and radiator guards and an engine immobilizer. In terms of convenience, the bike will have a 12V power socket and a 5 V USB port under the seat.
The bike will on offer in a total of 3 colour options, black, white and blue. In addition to the launch of the bike, the company has also introduced a new set of accessories for the Tiger. There are now over 50 accessories which the customer can choose from, namely luggage and seat options.
