Triumph Motorcycles has
launched the Tiger Explorer XCx at Rs. 18,75,000/- (pan India). The motorcycle was launched in New Delhi in
the presence of Vimal Sumbly, Managing Director, Triumph Motorcycles India Pvt
The new Triumph Explorer XCx
is basically an off roader. The Explorer XCx features a 1215cc triple engine,
unique in the large capacity adventure segment, delivering its power through a
final shaft drive. The triple engine’s power is delivered smoothly and
progressively across the rev and speed ranges through its linear torque curve.
A torque-assisted clutch makes the clutch action incredibly light, in turn
making both long distances and stop-start urban riding less demanding on the
rider. The engine performance is also enhanced through a new exhaust system,
with a distinctive resonant note.
The new Tiger Explorer’s
overall performance is given a new level of dynamism through the use of WP
adjustable suspension on the two entry level models. The other four models feature the Triumph
Semi Active Suspension system. This allows the rider to electronically control
the adjustment of the front and rear suspension damping, automatically adapting
the rear shock absorber pre-load settings to reflect the terrain being covered
and providing optimal grip and drive in any situation.
To give the rider the
handling, control and response they want to negotiate well-made roads and
broken terrain in all conditions, the Tiger Explorer offers as standard
multi-channel switchable ABS and traction control on the XC model.
The Explorer features an
Inertial Measurement Unit that, through a series of strategically positioned
sensors, monitors and responds to the bike’s movement status, calculates the
lean angle of the bikes and uses this measurement to ensure greater stability
by optimising the performance of the ABS and traction control systems.
Add to this the choice of
different Rider Modes –Sports/ Comfort/ Normal– which alters the configuration
of the bike to suit riding style, road and weather conditions.
The motorcycle features sharp
new lines giving a stylish and muscular look. The Tiger Explorer XCx introduces
a first-in-class electrically adjustable screen that allows the rider to
constantly tailor aero protection and comfort whilst riding.
“The Triumph Tiger family has
been pivotal in building the adventure riding category and culture in India.
With over 800 customers in the country Triumph does not just deliver great motorcycles,
we also create an ecosystem in which the rider is equipped with the skill sets
to ride deftly and safely. Our initiatives like the Triumph Tiger Trails and
our Tiger Training Academies stand testament to this. As the pioneer in this category, the
remarkable Tiger Explorer XCx with its state-of-the-art features and rider
focused technology is suited for both on and off road riding, ensuring superb
stability and control. It is a bike that allows riders to tailor their desired
adventure, to go anywhere and everywhere from the daily commute to the corners
of the earth,” said Vimal Sumbly.
