Motorcycle India on Tuesday launched the 2017 Triumph Tiger
Explorer XCx in India. The adventure bike will be sold as completely built units (CBUs) in the country with a price
tag of Rs 18.75 lakh (ex-showroom).
The capabilities and pricing of the new model make it stand in front of the extreme adventure motorcycles
, such as the Ducati Multistrada 1200 Enduro and the BMW R1200GS Adventure.
The XCx is the top-end, off-road oriented model in the Triumph Tiger range of adventure motorcycles and comes with durable wire spoke wheels and hi-end electronics.
Aesthetically, it carries the same silhouette of the outgoing model. However, there are lots of minor changes in the design, providing it with a sharper and more rugged appearance than its predecessor.
Powering the bike is the same 1,215cc, in-line three cylinder engine but with revised tuning. The updated Euro-IV/BS-IV motor makes 137PS and delivers a torque of 123Nm, both more than the outgoing version.
The new Tiger features
an electrically adjustable windscreen and a semi-active suspension for better long ride experiences. The electronic package receives ride-by-wire along with a choice of riding modes (Road, Rain and Off-Road) as well as a programmable Rider mode to save specific settings. The bike also gets cornering ABS, traction control and a new inertial measurement unit (IMU) that assists for better control. The new IMU calculates lean angles to deliver traction and braking power accordingly.
