8 REASONS TO RIDE the epic new Tiger 1200
#5 & #6
"Off-Road Pro" riding mode
The new Tiger 1200 sees the introduction of a brand new riding mode for the XC range; Off-Road Pro. This is an advanced off-road setting that gives the rider maximum control over their ride precisely when they need it. Essentially, Off-Road Pro switches off ABS and traction control, and (where appropriate) sets the semi-active suspension set-up to 'Off-Road' so you can really push your motorcycling to the limit.
Triumph Shift Assist
Triumph has developed an exclusive system called Triumph Shift Assist that allows the Tiger 1200 rider to make smooth up and down gear changes without the use of the clutch, and even when maintaining accelerator position. Featured as standard on the top specification Tiger 1200s and available as optional equipment on the mid spec bikes, the Triumph Shift assist system significantly reduces rider fatigue especially over long distances and demanding terrains.
#7 - Better ergonomics for
enhanced rider comfort
For this new Tiger, Triumph has updated the handlebar and rider geometry to encourage a more commanding riding position, and developed a new seat compound and construction that leads to better all-round comfort whether seated on the road or stood up while off-roading. The new Tiger 1200 is proof that 'more power' doesn't have to mean 'less comfort' or 'reduced handling'.
#8 - Customisable to meet your riding needs
Over 50 accessories are available to add to or adapt your Tiger's comfort, capability and travel requirements. For example, enabling fully loaded long distance travel, the exclusive Expedition Pack – which comprises stylish panniers and top box (with mounting kits), backrest pad and tank pad – will help you achieve this.
Ever since the very first Triumph Tigers won three gold medals in the 1936 International Six Days Trial, the commitment to be the best lives on in every Tiger.
