Triumph to launch 1200cc Tiger Explorer

All new model will feature 1200cc 130bhp engine

FOREIGN websites are gossiping about a new 1200cc Triumph Tiger, dubbed the Tiger Explorer.

The bike is set to be revealed to the world's press at the EICMA show in Milan in November and later at the NEC motorcycle show.

Taking its styling from the firm's popular Tiger 800, the new Tiger Explorer's 1200cc engine allegedly produces 135bhp and will supercede the current Tiger 1050. It's expected to be on sale in the UK very early in 2012.
