Conquer Mountains & Dunes With Triumph’s Upgraded Tiger 1200 ADV Motorcycles

Jan 22, 2020

In 2011 Triumph took aim at BMW’s wildly-successful R1200GS adventure bike with the release of the Hinckley firm’s Tiger Explorer range, now known as the Tiger 1200. In 2018 Triumph unveiled the third generation of the big Tiger, and though it received updates for the 2020 model year, the British manufacturer has now taken things one step further via the introduction of two new special edition variants in the form of the Tiger 1200 Desert Edition and Tiger 1200 Alpine Edition.

At the center of both versions is the same proven liquid-cooled, 1,215cc, 12V, DOHC, inline-three that makes 141hp and 90ft-lbs of torque. The new special editions also get electronically-adjustable WP suspension, Brembo monobloc brakes, 5” TFT displays, heated grips, an electronically-adjusted windscreen and seat-height, 5V USB outlet, and a three-into-one Arrow titanium silencer with carbon fiber end-cap and hanger that weighs 4.6lbs less than the standard pipe — all as standard features. And while both touring-ready models sport blacked-out 19” front and 17” rear wheels shod in Metzeler Tourance rubber, the XRx-based Alpine rides on 10-arm cast aluminum items while the XCx-based Desert Edition gets tubeless 32-spoked hoops. Adorned in special edition liveries with dedicated graphics, the Alpine and Desert Edition Tiger 1200s have been priced at $19,300 and $20,100 respectively.

Purchase: $19,300+
