TECHWATCH

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

The new Tigers have been treated to an ex­plo­sion of bi­nary fin­ery for 2018. Both get the fully ad­justable TFT dash first used on the 2017 Street Triple, and driven by the switchgear and joy­stick con­troller. The switchgear is now back­lit, too, mak­ing menu se­lec­tion and con­trol easy in the dark. There’s also an Of­froad Pro rider mode (tak­ing the max­i­mum modes to a to­tal of six) for im­proved man­ners when the tar­mac runs out, and up­dated and sim­pli­fied cruise con­trol. The 1200 also gets a bi- di­rec­tional quick­shifter, key­less ig­ni­tion, neat heated grips, and smart LEDS with vari­able-in­ten­sity pro­gres­sive cor­ner­ing lights built in. They’re the most tech-laden Tigers ever.
