2018 Triumph Tiger 1200 to be launched tomorrow

- Gets a new name.

- Exhaustive list of upgrades.

- To be priced around Rs 20 lakhs.

Triumph will launch the Tiger 1200 in India tomorrow. The bike was first showcased at the 2017 EICMA in Milan. 

Globally, the Tiger 1200 is offered in six versions, although we expect either of the two off-road-biased XC variants to be launched here. The manufacturer claims that the Tiger 1200 gets around 100 upgrades all-over. For 2018, the Tiger 1200 drops the 'Explorer' moniker from its name and gets a few revisions in its bodywork along with new features. The most visible change is the LED headlamps which get a cornering function. The Tiger 1200 now gets the five-inch full colour TFT screen that also features on the Street Triple RS and Tiger 800.

The electronic package now includes an 'Off Road Pro' mode with the existing five-riding modes and an updated cruise control system. It also gets cornering ABS, a traction control system, a bi-directional quickshifter and keyless ignition as standard. Powering the bike is a 1200cc, inline-three cylinder engine that is mated to a six-speed transmission and final shaft drive. This unit produces 139bhp and 122Nm of torque. The 2018 Tiger 1200 tips the scales at 260kg; 10kg lighter than its predecessor. 

Triumph has equipped the adventure tourer with top-spec hardware. While braking is sourced by Brembo, a WP setup takes care of suspension duties on both ends. The bike is available in two trims in global markets- XR and XC. However, we can expect the off-road biased, spoke-wheel XC version to be launched tomorrow.

Expected to carry a price tag of around Rs 20 lakhs, the Tiger 1200 will compete against the BMW R 1200 GS and the Ducati Multistrada 1200 in the country.
