Triumph Tiger Explorer range explained

The 2017 Triumph Tiger Explorer range includes 8 bikes in total, comprising 6 key models plus 2 ‘low seat’ versions.  It’s an extensive range, so let’s take a closer look and explain the differences between the various models.

Firstly, like the Tiger 800, there are 2 distinct model families in the 2017 Triumph Explorer range:  the road-focused XR models and the off-road orientated XC bikes.

The following features come as standard on ALL models in the new Triumph Explorer range:

  • Improved ergonomics and aerodynamic performance
  • High value bodywork finishes
  • Improved overall performance
  • Branded WP adjustable front and rear suspension
  • Riding modes
  • Dedicated engine maps
  • ABS and Triumph Traction Control (TTC)
  • Electronically adjustable screen – unique in class
  • New exhaust system and refined tone
  • Brembo M4.32 monobloc radial calipers

Let’s look at the XR bikes first.  Although these bikes are quite capable of going off-road, they are aimed at riders who do mostly road riding.
