Triumph Motorcycles India has announced the launch of the 2022 Tiger 1200 range in our market with prices starting from Rs 19.19 lakh onwards. This flagship adventure tourer from the British marque rivals the likes of the Ducati Multistrada V4 and the BMW R 1250 GS in the Indian market. Here we list the top five highlights of the new 2022 Triumph Tiger 1200.
The 2022 Tiger 1200 is available in four variants – GT Pro, GT Explorer, Rally Pro, and Rally Explorer. The Explorer variants are distinguished from the Pro versions through their larger fuel tank and Triumph Blind Spot Radar System. The additional fuel tank capacity gives the Explorer variants a longer range and a higher kerb weight than the Pro versions. Everything else remains identical on all the variants.
Thus, the 2022 Triumph Tiger 1200 packs an all-new design that looks sleeker than its predecessor. The styling cues include a sleek LED headlight with integrated LED DRL, adjustable windscreen, semi-fairing, beak-style design for the front, split-style seats, tall-set exhaust, lighter chassis, lightweight swingarm, and aluminium fuel tank.

The 2022 Tiger 1200 GT and the Tiger 1200 Rally are available in three colours each. The Snowdonia White and Sapphire Black paint themes are common across the range.

The standard features across the range include full-LED lighting, a Bluetooth-enabled colour TFT display, adaptive cornering lights, Triumph shift assist, and keyless system. Features unique to the Explorer variants include radar-based blind-spot detection function and lane assist feature, heated grips and heated seats, and tyre pressure monitoring system. The electronics ride aids, which work with an Inertia Measurement Unit (IMU), include cornering traction control system, cornering ABS, and selectable riding modes. Triumph Motorcycles will offer over 50 genuine accessories to enhance the bike’s capability, comfort, style, and protection.
All variants use the same BS6-compliant 1,160cc, inline-three cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that produces 148bhp of power at 9,000rpm and 130Nm of peak torque at 7,000rpm. The motor is linked to a six-speed gearbox and the power is sent to the rear wheel via a shaft drive system. The service interval stands at 16,000km/one-year.
While the suspension travel is different, both variants use Showa-sourced, electronically-adjustable hardware to handle the shock absorption tasks. The braking tasks are handled by dual 320mm discs with Brembo Stylema callipers at the front and a 282mm single rotor with Brembo calliper at the rear.
The road-biased GT versions get 19-inch front and 18-inch rear alloy wheels that are shod in Metzeler Tourance tyres. These models also run a relatively shorter suspension travel than the Rally variants. The off-road biased Tiger 1200 Rally series, on the other hand, features a longer travel suspension and 21-inch front and 18-inch rear cross-spoke wheels. These tubeless-tyre compatible cross-spoke wheels are shod in Metzeler Karoo tyres.
