Recently folks at VisorDown updated a spyshot of the new Triumph Explorer being tested. Tiger Explorer is one of the most expensive motorcycles in the Triumph’s line-up and yet it is among the most successful product from Triumph. The spyshot reveals that the new Tiger Explorer will be going through a slew of modifications. Main components like the engine and frame will be carried on from the present motorcycle while new modifications include new suspension, brakes and a completely revamped electronics package. The new suspensions look like the same WP unit that is used on the KTM 1290 Super Adventure.
These WP suspensions are reactive to the surface changes, braking and acceleration, linked to multiple riding modes. Apart from the suspensions, the old Nissin’s brake calipers have been replaced by Brembo radial brake calipers. New updates will also include cornering ABS; this feature is already available on the KTM and on 2016 BMW R1200GS. As reported, last month a survey was carried on by Triumph on the existing Tiger Explorer owners, asking what new features and changes would they like to include in the future model. The revamp styling also includes the electric screen and also the revised side panels and nose bodywork. Presently Triumph official website lists the current Tiger Explorer as the 2016 model and so it could be assumes this new version could be planned as part of the Triumph’s 2017 line-up.
