    Triumph 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.
