The Tiger Explorer XCX packs immense power and linear torque from its signature 1215cc triple engine and is optimised for all terrain with spoked wheels for tubeless tyres, ABS, Traction control and, Brembo monobloc 4-piston radial callipers at the front, and a single 282mm disc, 2-piston sliding calliper at the rear.

Three new selectable Rider modes; Road, Rain and Off-Road, incorporate different setting for ABS, traction control and throttle maps, each optimised to suit the selected mode for maximum control, comfort and rider engagement.

Rider Modes

The new Tiger Explorer family makes full use of Triumph's impressive Rider Mode technology to offer a choice of up to five Rider Modes, four which are pre-set and one which can be programmed by the rider — which alters the configuration of the bike to suit riding style, road and weather conditions.

Each Rider Mode changes the engine map, the levels of ABS and Traction Control, and where fitted, the damping set-up of the TSAS system and power.

Triumph Tiger Explorer XRX Feature 01

Rider Modes:Road

Maximises comfort and riding pleasure, particularly over long distances. The ABS and Traction Control settings ensure great stability and optimise braking on paved surfaces. The engine map is set to make the most of the smooth delivery of power over asphalt or similar surfaces. The TSAS (if fitted) will provide the optimal setting for road use.

Available on all Tiger Explorer models

Triumph Tiger Explorer XRX Feature 03

Rider Modes:Rain

Specifically developed for use over wet and slippery surfaces, the engine map reduces power, the Traction Control setting minimises rear wheel slip for enhanced control and the ABS setting prevents lock-up, avoiding uncontrolled skids. The TSAS (if fitted) features a soft set-up to improve grip.

Available on all Tiger Explorer models

Triumph Tiger Explorer XRX Feature 04

Rider Modes:Off-Road

Designed to enhance the ride and pleasure of covering broken ground, the Traction Control and ABS settings are adjusted for optimised off road performance. The TSAS system has been specifically calibrated for this mode, optimising the damping response for enhanced control in off-road conditions.

Available on Tiger Explorer XRX/XCX. XRT/XCA

Triumph Tiger Explorer XRX Feature 05

Rider Modes:Sport

Exploits the full potential of the Tiger Explorer's triple engine by providing a more direct throttle response. The setting of the ABS ensures excellent braking performance on paved surfaces, while the dedicated setting of the Traction Control allows increased rear wheel slip compared to the road setting, for a more dynamic ride. The TSAS system provides firmer damping to take on and conquer the most demanding roads.

Available on Tiger Explorer XRT/XCA

Triumph Tiger Explorer XRX Feature 05

Rider Modes:Rider Configurable

The perfect setting for riders who wish to configure the ride to their own style, performance and enjoyment.

Triumph Tiger Explorer XRX Feature 07

Triumph Semi Active Suspension (TSAS)

The new Tiger Explorer's performance is given a new level of dynamism on the XRX, XRT XCX & XCA, models with the addition of the ground-breaking 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.

Triumph Tiger Explorer XRX Feature 08

Optimised Cornering ABS & Traction Control

To give the rider the handling, control and response they want, when negotiating well-made roads and broken terrain in all conditions, the new Tiger Explorer offers as standard multi-channel switchable ABS and traction control on the entry level XR model. The other four models come with cornering-optimised ABS and traction control, to ensure superb stability even when approaching the most challenging apex.

The XRX, XRT XCX, AND XCA, models all feature 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.

Triumph Tiger Explorer Feature 09

Hill Hold Control

The Tiger Explorer XRT and Tiger Explorer XCA offer a new Hill Hold Control feature that prevents the motorcycle rolling back when attempting to set off on a steep incline — particularly beneficial when the motorcycle is fully-loaded or carrying a passenger.

Body Work

Contemporary crisp lines, technically crafted details and distinctive styling give the new Tiger Explorer a tough, assertive and commanding stance. It displays a modern beauty and proportioned muscularity that portrays the confidence and capability you would expect from Triumph.

The cockpit has been developed with one thing in mind, the rider. Refined ergonomics, all new switch gear and the inclusion of the latest LCD display ensures ease of use even at speed.

Triumph Tiger Explorer XRX Feature 12

Electrically Adjustable Screen

The new Tiger Explorer sets a new level of rider focus in the segment. All models feature a first-in-class electrically adjustable screen that allows the rider to constantly tailor aero-protection and comfort whilst riding.

The Tiger Explorer XRT and Tiger Explorer XCA have the taller Touring screen as standard.

Triumph Tiger Explorer XRX Feature 13


The seating, foot peg and bar position has been developed to ensure maximum rider comfort, whether sitting down putting in the miles, or standing up taking off-road in their stride. The inclusion of heated grips on all but the XR and heated rider and passenger seats on the XRT and XCA, ensure all year round, all climate rider and passenger comfort for the miles ahead.

Triple Engine

At the heart of the Explorer is a unique 12 valve, 1215cc, in-line three cylinder unit that generates incredible linear torque and power from the largest capacity engine in the segment.

To make the best use of its power, the new Tiger Explorer makes use of a hydraulic torque assist clutch’ reducing lever effort and long-term rider fatigue. All models feature a 6 speed gearbox in which the top gear is set high to make cruising long distances both easy and fuel efficient. Power is transmitted to the rear wheel through a low-maintenance final shaft drive.

Triumph Tiger Explorer Feature 15


The new Tiger Explorer also features a new exhaust system that not only helps with the engine performance and achieving compliance with the Euro 4 emissions standard, but also gives the family a distinctive, resonant exhaust note unique to a Triumph triple engine.
