Not bad, gave it a cool. But in my humble opinion, it has far too much electronics to be an adventure bike. It's fine if you adventure riding is only done with a 100 miles or so of the nearest Triumph certified repair tech/shop, but I would be very worried about taking it out into the rough of say outer Mongolia or the back roads of Northern BC. IMHO, a proper adventure type bike should adhere to the KISS principle (Keep it simple stupid) and it rider should be able to do basic road side or trail side repairs with a screw drive and an adjustable wrench, and not have to plug into a diagnostic computer to tell him which electronic do-hickey has failed and need to be replaced.
Always ask why.

...and here I thought I would be the only one who voted Fail.

It's a nice looking bike overall, I like the look of the frame, the red colour and the little sporty skid plate... and I have to agree with ceemes, dual sport bikes are really meant to be simple, light and if I may add, mid-sized engined. 1215cc, 560lbs, loads of gadgets and super tall... not a great combination.

What's amazing, is there are 6 additional 2017 Triumph Tiger Explorer 1200cc versions! Talk about waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too many versions... Triumph takes the cake by a football field.

Your Coolness Factor of the 2017 Triumph Tiger Explorer XRt is:

Awesome (3 points) 19% 19% [ 3 ]

Uncool (1 point) 19% 19% [ 3 ]

= a Coolwall Factor of 45.8%


Notes: Triumph makes some great bikes and are well known for their 3-cylinder engines, unique retro styling and British heritage... The original Triumph Tiger, a mid-sized adventure bike, started them onto the less traveled path... But somewhere along the way, there was a fork in the road and now they are lost. Our readers agree, the new 2017 Triumph Tiger Explorer XRt is just not right.


Get excited as the next TMW Cool Wall bike for 2016 is now up for voting and discussion, have fun!
