Essentially the same, all-new, 1215cc, shaft drive triple which debuted earlier this year in the Tiger Explorer adventure bike, but slightly detuned to give more torque and flexibility. Triumph claims the aim was to deliver over 100Nm of torque all the way from 2500rpm to 9800rpm. The result is peaks of 132bhp @ 8900rpm and 89ftlbs @ 6450rpm (compared to the Explorer’s 135bhp @ 9300rpm and 89ftlbs @ 7850rpm) and a fabulously grunty, crisp delivery. Gear ratios also different to the Explorer, most notablly with 6th now tagged an ‘Overdrive’. There’s also an improved version of the cruise control introduced on the Explorer. Triumph also claims impressive fuel consumption of 54.5mpg @ 75mph while service intervals are and impressive 10,000 miles, minor/20,000miles, major.
