Video: Triumph Explorer 1200 first ride

Published: 29 February 2012

Triumph is making no bones about gunning for BMW's best-selling R1200GS - its new Explorer 1200 is aimed squarely at giving the BMW a bloody nose. Triumph motorcycles for sale. And in every possible way, except for off-road ability and image, the Triumph is dynamically the better bike, and in some cases by a long way.

Triumph has built a bike with 135bhp from an all-new 1215cc three-cylinder engine, a bike with more power, better handling, more agility and arguably better styling than its German rival.
