Triumph offer big-tanked Explorer options for long-range adventurer­s

-

After the demise of KTM’S 1290 Super Adventure T, only Ducati’s Multistrad­a 1260 Enduro and BMW’S GS Adventure models boast 30-litre tanks. But now Triumph have taken aim at those behemoths with their new ‘Explorer’ models. At their core, the Explorers are essentiall­y the GT Pro and Rally Pro with 30-litre tanks instead of the 20l standard ones, which ups the range from roughly 250 miles to around 380, however they also get some extra goodies to make them more functional tourers.

The Explorers come with heated rider and passenger seats as standard, engine protection bars, tyre pressure monitoring and blind spot detection radar, which incorporat­es lane change assist.

The Rally Explorer also comes with tank protection bars. The only downside to this additional kit is extra weight – the Explorers have a roughly 10kg weight penalty over the standard models as well as a significan­t uptick in cost of £1400.
