You could win a new Triumph Explorer 1200
Win a Triumph Explorer 1200 with MCN
16 April 2012 15:27
To celebrate the new-look MCN, we have a brand new Triumph Explorer 1200 to give away, worth £11,149. All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning the Explorer is enter here.
If your entry is picked at random on May 3 then you have 28 days to pick up a new Explorer from your local Triumph dealer.
The Explorer has a brand new three-cylinder 1215cc engine, shaft drive and Triumph’s trademark taut yet supple suspension. With huge amounts of useable torque, it’s a joy to ride at any pace – from pottering through towns to slicing through open countryside.
It also comes with plenty of kit as standard that you have to pay for on rival bikes - traction control and cruise control, for example.
MCN editor Marc Potter rode the bike at the launch: "I have to say I am massively impressed. It doesn’t do anything staggeringly better than its rivals but as a package it takes adventure touring bikes to a new level.
"You hardly have to ever stress the engine but when you do it’s got loads more get up and go than the BMW R1200GS and although you wouldn’t want to put it on a track day the handling is extremely neutral and it’s almost as quick to change direction as a Ducati Multistrada, though certainly not as sporty as that bike. But then it’s not meant to be.
"It’s going to be fascinating to see how the new Triumph compares to the Honda Crosstourer and the GS when we get them together for the full intensive group test next month. But if you put a deposit down on a new Triumph Tiger Explorer you’ve made a good choice."
