Triumph Tiger Explorer XC Special Edition unveiled

Globebusters-inspired Explorer will be available from April

TRIUMPH has announced it will be releasing a limited-run special edition version of the Tiger Explorer XC.

The SE Explorers - which pay tribute to the bikes that will be used by motorcycle expedition specialists Globebusters - have been fitted with a number of upgrades and modifications.

Available in matt black or matt blazing orange, the bikes have been fitted with a taller screen, headlight protectors, radiator guards and CNC machined front foot rests.

Each bike also comes fitted with a sat nav and mount as standard, alongside a tank pad, panniers, and a roll bag.

Triumph says: ‘Powered by Triumph’s award-winning 137hp three-cylinder power unit, the special edition Explorer delivers class-leading performance and high-specification as standard. Alongside intelligent ride-by-wire throttle control, each bike features cruise control, switchable ABS and full rider traction control.

‘Elsewhere, the Explorer has undergone a number of eye-catching cosmetic changes. From painted pannier lids, mounts, footrest hangers and fog light surround to blacked-out grab handles and handlebars, the XC SE gives the world’s most courageous riders a class-leading bike to travel the world on.’

The Globebusters-inspired Tiger Explorer XC SE is priced at £13,999 OTR - only 50 models have been produced and will be available from selected dealerships from April 2015.
