THE NEW TRI­UMPH TIGER 1200 XCx, to take its full name, is the new avatar of the larger Tiger fam­ily, sport­ing the 1,215-cc three-cylin­der mo­tor. Over 100 changes have been made, in­clud­ing re­vi­sions to the en­gine, the ad­di­tion of a slew of elec­tronic rider aids such as trac­tion con­trol and cor­ner­ing ABS, five riding modes, as well as more con­tem­po­rary equip­ment such as LED light­ing with day­time lights, full-colour TFT in­for­ma­tion dis­play, and elec­tri­cally ad­justable screen. The bike is now five ki­los lighter than its pre­de­ces­sor. There are also over 50 dif­fer­ent ac­ces­sories on of­fer. Like its 800-cc sib­ling, the 1200 also gets a fa­mil­iar vari­ant struc­ture. There is now the off-road/ ad­ven­ture oriented XC range and the more ur­ban-bi­ased XR se­ries: XR, XRx, XRT, XRx Low, XCx, and XCA.

Among the big­gest changes are those made to the en­gine. The 1,215-cc, 12-valve DOHC, fuel-in­jected, in-line three now pro­duces 141 PS at 9,350 rpm with a peak torque of 122 Nm at 7,600 rpm and is har­nessed by a rideby-wire sys­tem and a six-speed hy­drauli­cally as­sisted, torque-as­sist wet multi-plate clutch via shaft fi­nal drive. A sin­gle-sided swingarm holds the rear wheel. Key me­chan­i­cals for the XCx launched here are 19-inch front wheel and 17-inch rear wheel that have tube­less tyres, 120/70 R19 front and 170/60 R17 rear. A WP 48-mm USD front fork with elec­tron­i­cally ad­justable damp­ing and 190-mm travel han­dles sus­pen­sion du­ties up front with a WP monoshock sport­ing elec­tron­i­cally ad­justable, semi-ac­tive damp­ing and au­to­matic preload ad­just­ment with 193-mm travel at the rear. Brak­ing du­ties see twin 305-mm front discs with ra­dial Brembo four-pis­ton calipers, a 282-mm disc with a Nissin twin-pis­ton slid­ing caliper at the rear, and switch­able cor­ner­ing ABS. There are five riding modes: Road, Of­froad, Off-road Pro, Sport, and Rain.

The Tiger 1200 XCx has a kerb weight of 248 kg. It re­tains the large 20-litre tank. Seat height is ad­justable by 20 mil­lime­tres; be­tween 835 and 855 mm. We ex­pect to see more vari­ants be­ing launched in the near fu­ture.
