POSTED: 09/04/2019

NEW TIGER 1200 DESERT EDITION

Inspired by the epic motorcycle adventures the Tiger 1200 has taken across the most inhospitable and challenging deserts in the world, the new Tiger 1200 Desert Edition takes all of the distinctive and purposeful Tiger 1200 XC line-up looks and incredible capability, whilst bringing an even higher standard of finish, including:

    Exclusive ‘Sandstorm’ special edition paint scheme.
    Dedicated ‘Desert Edition’ graphics.
    New metallised ‘SE’ radiator badges.

In addition to its unique paint scheme, the Tiger 1200 Desert Edition also features higher specification equipment compared to the mid spec XCx model, designed to further enhance its adventure capability and affordability. These dedicated features are;

    Lightweight Arrow titanium silencer
    Triumph Shift Assist for clutchless up- and down-shifts

Tiger triple engine

The new Desert Edition features the Tiger 1200’s 1215cc Triple engine, the most powerful shaft-driven engine in its class, delivering smooth and immediate response through the gears up to a peak power of 141PS @ 9,350rpm. This is derived by the high quality engine components 

(including lightweight flywheel, lighter crankshaft and magnesium cam cover) that allow the engine to spin up fast for instant power delivery and maximum torque of 122Nm @ 7,600rpm. 

In addition, the lightweight Arrow titanium silencer enhances the bike’s agility and improves the already thrilling Tiger Triple soundtrack.

 

State-of-the-art technology 

The new Desert Edition offers a huge choice of core features and benefits to deliver a superior riding experience. This ride enhancing technology includes:

    Adjustable full colour TFT instrument - Full colour and clear instrumentation providing precise rider information with an intuitive operation
    Optimised Cornering ABS and Traction Control - Enabled via an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), this system supports the automatic selection of the appropriate level of ABS and Traction Control intervention by constantly measuring roll, pitch, yaw and acceleration rates, in order to calculate the lean angle. This fully integrated technology system ensures greater riding stability at all times.
    5 rider modes (Rain, Road, Off-Road, Off-Road PRO, Sport) – The riding modes adjust throttle response, ABS and Traction Control settings for maximum rider control in all riding conditions. The Off-Road PRO riding mode is Triumph’s most extreme off-road set-up for advanced off-road adventure, with ABS and Traction Control turned off, and an off-road throttle map.
    All LED lighting - Providing enhanced visibility and style, Triumph's LED signature lighting creates clear views ahead and from behind
    High specification Triumph Semi-Active Suspension (TSAS) - Featuring premium adjustable WP suspension, allowing the rider to electronically control the type of ride with the TSAS controlling the front and rear suspension damping. It also automatically adapts the RSU pre-load settings to maintain optimal ride height for different rider sizes and payloads. There are two TSAS modes: Auto / Off-Road
    Triumph Shift Assist - Providing seamless clutchless up and down gearshifts, this system facilitates silky smooth gear changes and significantly reduces rider fatigue
    Illuminated backlit buttons - Ergonomically-designed fully backlit handlebar switch cubes and joystick to make night-time use even easier
    Keyless ignition - Easier to live with daily, featuring a premium keyless ignition
    Cruise control - Accessed easily through the left hand switchcube, the new single button cruise control helps to reduce rider fatigue
    Electrically adjustable touring screen – Configure the screen height on the road through intuitive backlit switch cube for exceptional long distance comfort.
    High levels of standard technology specification, including ride-by-wire throttle, heated grips and three power sockets including a handy USB socket under the seat.
