• Updated T-Plane triple engine delivers more refinement and superior low speed control

Triumph Motorcycles has revealed new features and enhancements for its Tiger 1200 Pro models for 2024, making the range even more advanced and refined. The updates include further refinements to the engine, enhanced comfort and ergonomics, improved cornering ground clearance, reduced seat height with Active Preload Reduction and distinctive new colors.

The 1160cc Triumph triple engine now delivers an even more refined riding experience, with superior low speed control, while retaining the exciting and unmistakable triple character from its T-plane crank.

With changes to the crankshaft, alternator rotor, and balancer to increase engine inertia, plus some associated engine calibration changes, the Triumph engineering team has been able to create a smoother and more precise low rev torque delivery. Customers will be able to feel the increased smoothness while accelerating or decelerating, especially at low speeds. An updated clutch design will also mean that riders experience a smoother engagement when changing into first gear.

Triumph has also enhanced the all-day comfort of the Tiger 1200 Pro models for riders looking for long-distance touring capability. The engine itself is now even smoother and more refined, thanks to a revised engine balancing strategy, which improves comfort through all the key rider touchpoints.

The dampened handlebars and risers, which have proven so popular in the Explorer models, have also been introduced to the GT Pro and Rally Pro, delivering a smoother ride with increased mirror visibility.

The rider seat has been re-designed with a flatter profile, providing more space for the rider which will help reduce fatigue on longer trips. The accessory low seat, which reduces the seat position by .78” (20mm) to give a lowest seat height of 32.67” (830mm) on the GT Pro and 33.66” (855mm) on the Rally Pro, has also been designed to be significantly more comfortable. A longer clutch lever has also been introduced, providing increased space for riders’ fingers, adding further comfort especially on longer journeys.

Triumph has also increased the cornering ground clearance of the Tiger 1200 GT Pro model, by lifting the footpeg positions and moving them closer to the bike. The new Active Preload Reduction feature, which was revealed in August 2023, offers the rider greater confidence by reducing the rear suspension preload as the Tiger 1200 slows to a stop, lowering the seat height by up to .78” (20mm), simply by pressing the ‘Home’ button on the switch cube for one second.

Both variants of the Tiger 1200 Pro models will be available with new colors for 2024. The Tiger 1200 GT Pro, tailor made for the perfect road-focused adventure ride, will be available in eye-catching Carnival Red, as well as the previous options of Snowdonia White and Sapphire Black. The Tiger 1200 Rally Pro, perfect for an all-terrain adventure, will be available in stylish new Matte Sandstorm, and Jet Black options, as well as the popular Matte Khaki.

 

Chief Product Officer Steve Sargent said: “The updates to the Tiger 1200 Pro range for 2024 will deliver an even more refined ride, broadening its global appeal. While the current generation model has already made a big impact on this segment, more than doubling annual sales of the Tiger 1200 around the globe, our world-class engineering team is always looking for new ways to refine and enhance every model.

“By listening to customer feedback and integrating some of the new enhancements already revealed in the new Tiger 900, this range of updates come together to deliver a significant improvement to the riding experience.”

First launched in 2022, the latest generation Tiger 1200 was designed to be the world’s most capable, agile, and maneuverable large capacity adventure motorcycle. Since then, the Tiger 1200 range has seen global sales success, and the Tiger 1200 GT Explorer with its 7.92 gal (30 liter) tank, was even the bike of choice for Enduro World Champion Ivan Cervantes when he took the Guinness World Records title for riding the greatest distance in 24 hours on a motorcycle.
