Tri­umph’s new big cat

The Bri­tish have a new gun to bat­tle the might of the BMW R 1200 GS

Evo India - - NEWS -

IT WAS QUITE UN­DER­STAND­ABLE when Tri­umph said that they took four years to roll out the im­proved Tiger 1200, since they have made upto 100 im­prove­ments. Tri­umph in fact says that this new ad­ven­ture tourer is loaded to the gills. It's not too badly priced ei­ther at `17 lakh for the XCx vari­ant (ex-show­room, In­dia) as it comes with a lot of im­prove­ments as com­pared to its pre­de­ces­sor.

The bike is lighter and has shed 10kg. Com­bined with the 140bhp and 122Nm that the 1200 in-line triple pro­duces, this should make this big Tri­umph even more fleet footed than it was. The bike also gets a new Off-Road Pro rid­ing mode and key­less ig­ni­tion, which is a first for any Tri­umph. Ad­di­tion­ally, it gets cor­ner­ing LED lights and an elec­tri­cally ad­justable wind­shield that can be con­trolled via a five-way joy­stick. The Tiger 1200 XCx also gets heated grips and heated seats.
