2022 Triumph Tiger 1200 Pre-Bookings Open In India
Triumph recently unveiled their new ADV motorcycle, the Tiger 1200, which will compete with the BMW R 1250 GS and the Ducati Multistrada V4. Triumph India has completed the pre-booking for the Tiger 1200. The Tiger 1200 is available in five different configurations, including road-oriented variants such as the GT, GT Pro, and GT Explorer.
The GT range, which is more focused on the road, gets a 19-inch front wheel and an 18-inch rear wheel wrapped in cast aluminum alloys. Rally models, on the other hand, get a 21-inch front wheel and a 19-inch rear wheel wrapped in a tubeless spoked setup. Triumph has also introduced explorer variants with a 30-liter fuel tank this time around, while the other variants have a 20-liter fuel tank. The Blind Spot radar system is also available on the GT Explorer and Rally Explorer.
The 2022 Triumph Tiger 1200 line-up has a distinct new appearance, with a more upright, commanding stance and a visually lighter front end. The new generation also has a slimmer waist and a more compact design with a narrower stand-over, making it easier to not only get your feet on the floor but also to move around while riding.
The new 1160cc engine provides a significant improvement in performance, producing 150PS peak power at 9,000rpm, which is 9PS more than the previous generation. The torque is also significantly greater than the previous generation, with 130Nm of peak torque at 7,000rpm, an increase of 8Nm over the previous engine.
The new lightweight low-maintenance shaft drive, a key practical advantage valued by adventure touring riders, completes the transformation. Aside from increased power and torque, the new engine, tune, and T-plane triple crank provide improved acceleration and a much more responsive and exciting character, with the uneven firing interval providing excellent feel and tractability at the bottom end, combined with the really strong triple power and torque delivery throughout the rev range.
The 2022 Triumph Tiger 1200 weighs 25kg less than the previous model. The Tiger’s new frame, which is 5.4kg lighter than the previous design, contributes significantly to the weight and handling capability transformation. It includes a bolt-on aluminum rear sub-frame and bolt-on pillion hangers, both of which were developed in response to customer feedback. The new aluminum fuel tank and all-new tri-link swingarm, which is 1.5kg lighter and stronger than the previous single-sided setup and incorporates a smaller and lighter shaft drive and bevel box, save even more weight.
All Tiger 1200 models feature class-leading Brembo Stylema® brakes for powerful and progressive performance. Cornering ABS, which is standard on all new models, is in charge of braking and is assisted by a sophisticated IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit). Seat heights for the GT, GT Pro, and GT Explorer are 850mm and 870mm, respectively, while for the Rally Pro and Rally Explorer they are 875mm and 895mm.
