2024 Triumph Tiger 1200 Rally Explorer Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

For 2024, Tiger 1200 Rally Explorer was significantly updated to be more advanced and refined than ever. Featuring improved low speed control, with enhanced comfort and ergonomics.

In addition to the adjustable seat height of 34.44-35.23in, the Active Preload Reduction feature can further lower the bike by up to 0.78in when coming to a stop, depending on the combined weight of rider, pillion and luggage.

Whether you are riding on or off road, the updated T-plane delivers more refinement and better low speed precision and control, via increased inertia, improved balance and revised calibration.

The Rally Explorer’s 7.9-US gallon tank gives 50% more range than the Rally Pro. The extra weight is carried low to retain the exceptional low-speed balance and maneuverability.

A major safety innovation developed in partnership with Continental, the Rally Explorer benefits from an rear-mounted radar that gives you both Blind Spot Assist and Lane Change Assist features.

A 21” front wheel combines with Showa semi-active suspension with 8.6in of travel for total control on the most testing terrain. The system automatically adjusts to load and surface for no compromise handling.

The Rally Explorer is fitted with heated rider and pillion seats as standard for all-weather comfort on long journeys, with multiple temperature settings and independent rider and pillion adjustment.

Standard fit on the Rally Explorer for enhanced rider safety and convenience, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) delivers real-time information and rider peace of mind.

Controlled by a sophisticated IMU, the Optimized Cornering ABS and Traction Control systems bring enhanced control in all riding situations. Both can be switched off for expert off-road riding.

Class-leading Brembo Stylema calipers are paired to a Magura master cylinder for advanced braking power and finesse. Switchable ABS enhances on-road safety and off-road control.

 

Triumph Motorcycles has revealed new features and enhancements for its Tiger 1200 family for 2024, making the range even more advanced and refined. The updates include further refinements to the engine, enhanced comfort and ergonomics, improved cornering ground clearance, reduced seat height with Active Preload Reduction and distinctive new colours.

Triumph’s 1160cc triple engine now delivers an even more refined riding experience, with superior low speed control, whilst retaining the exciting and unmistakable triple character from its T plane crank.

With changes to the crankshaft, alternator rotor and balancer to increase engine inertia, plus some associated engine calibration changes, the Triumph engineering team has been able to create a smoother and more precise low rev torque delivery. Customers will be able to feel the increased smoothness while accelerating or decelerating, especially at low speeds. An updated clutch design will also mean that riders experience a smoother engagement when changing into first gear,

Triumph has also enhanced the all-day comfort of the Tiger 1200 for customers looking for long-distance touring capability. The engine itself is now even smoother and more refined, thanks to a revised engine balancing strategy, which improves comfort through all the key rider touchpoints.

The dampened handlebars and risers, which have proven so popular in the Explorer models, have also been introduced to the GT Pro and Rally Pro, delivering a smoother ride with increased mirror visibility.

The rider seat has been re-designed with a flatter profile, providing more space for the rider which will help reduce fatigue on longer trips. The accessory low seat, which reduces the seat position by 20mm to give a lowest seat height of 830mm on the GT Pro and 855mm on the Rally Pro, has also been designed to be significantly more comfortable. A longer clutch lever has also been introduced, providing increased space for riders’ fingers adding further comfort especially on longer journeys.

Triumph has also increased the cornering ground clearance of the Tiger 1200 GT Pro and GT Explorer models, by lifting the footpeg positions and moving them closer to the bike. The new Active Preload Reduction feature, which was revealed in August 2023, offers the rider greater confidence by reducing the rear suspension preload as the Tiger 1200 slows to a stop, lowering the seat height by up to 20mm, simply by pressing the ‘Home’ button on the switch cube for one second.

The Tiger 1200 is now available in four variants, with new colours for 2024. The Tiger 1200 GT Pro and GT Explorer, tailor made for the perfect road-focused adventure ride, are now available in eye-catching Carnival Red, as well as the previous options of Snowdonia White
and Sapphire Black. The Tiger 1200 Rally Pro and Rally Explorer, perfect for an all-terrain adventure, are available in stylish new Matt Sandstorm, and Jet Black options, as well as the popular Matt Khaki.

Chief Product Officer Steve Sargent said: “The updates to the Tiger 1200 range for 2024 will deliver an even more refined ride, broadening its global appeal. While the current generation model has already made a big impact on this segment, more than doubling annual sales of the Tiger 1200 around the globe, our world-class engineering team is always looking for new ways to refine and enhance every model.

“By listening to customer feedback and integrating some of the new enhancements already revealed in the new Tiger 900, this range of updates come together to deliver a significant improvement to the riding experience.”

First launched in 2021, the latest generation Tiger 1200 was designed to be the world’s most capable, agile and manoeuvrable large capacity adventure motorcycle.  Since then, the Tiger 1200 range has seen global sales success, and the Tiger 1200 GT Explorer with its 30 liter tank, was even the bike of choice for Enduro World Champion Ivan Cervantes when he took the Guinness World Records title for riding the greatest distance in 24 hours on a motorcycle.
