une nouvelle Triumph 1200cc pour 2012


Recommended Posts

avez vous vue ca zi_have_no_idea



Triumph has released yet more new models, expanding its range where other manufacturers are seemingly shrinking. An all-new open-class Adventure bike, the Tiger Explorer, will challenge BMW, while an R version of the bread-and-butter Speed Triple give Triumph faithful a helping of Öhlins suspension and Brembo brakes. Additionally, a limited-edition Steve McQueen replica provides something to the nostalgics out there.


Of course, the big news is the Tiger Explorer, the largest-displacement adventure bike the Hinkley company has built. Details on all three new models are scanty so far, but Triumph tells us this model gets a new steel chassis, a 19-inch front wheel (and 17-inch back), a class-leading 950-watt generator, shaft drive, optional hard luggage, ABS (with an ‘off’ switch), adjustable seat height and a burly three-cylinder engine “in excess of 1200cc.” If Triumph applies the same long-stroke tuning trickery to its 1050cc engine it used with the excellent Tiger 800 (a stroked 675), we don’t expect much more peak horsepower compared to the 1050, but there will be a lot more torque — maybe even the most of any Adventure bike. There is no word on weight, availability or pricing, but if you’re starting a pool, I’ll put $10 on it being more than $1000 less than the basic BMW R1200GS’ $16,150 MSRP. An interesting note — the Tiger 1050 is apparently still in the catalog for 2012.
