2022 Triumph Tiger 1200: Design
2022 Triumph Tiger 1200 looks sleeker than before and the aggressive appeal is brought out by the new LED headlamp with LED DRLs, a tall (adjustable) windscreen, and a muscular fuel tank. The bike offers improved ergonomics on account of new handlebars that are wider and sit higher than before. The offroading characteristics of the Triumph Tiger 1200 are highlighted by the knuckle guard, aluminium sump guard, wire-spoke wheels (Rally range), knobby tyres, and an upswept exhaust.
2022 Triumph Tiger Features
The new Tiger 1200 gets a host of electronic aids, full-LED lighting, a Bluetooth-enabled colour-TFT display, cornering ABS, cornering traction control, cruise control, blind-spot radar system, and Lane Change Assist feature along with adjustable seat height. Of course, there are a bunch of accessories to choose from as well.
2022 Triumph Tiger 1200: Engine specs
Powering the 2022 Triumph Tiger 1200 is a new 1,160 cc triple-cylinder engine that puts out 148 bhp at 9,000 rpm and 130 Nm of peak torque at 7,000 rpm ( 9 bhp and 8 Nm more on tap as compared to the previous Tiger 1200). This engine is paired with a six-speed gearbox with slipper clutch and bi-directional quickshifter.
2022 Triumph Tiger Specifications
Underpinned by a new frame with a bolt-on rear aluminium subframe, the 2022 Triumph Tiger 1200 is lighter than the outgoing motorcycle by 25kg, weighing 245kg for the GT Pro model, and going up to 261kg for the heaviest Rally Explorer variant. The semi-active suspension setup comes from Showa, sporting 49mm USD forks with damping up front, and a monoshock with damping and automatic electronic preload adjustment. The differentiating factor is the amount of wheel travel on both variants — while the GT gets 200mm of wheel travel on both ends, the Rally receives an extra 20mm of travel.
The Tiger 1200 GT Explorer is in every way the same bike as the Tiger 1200 GT Pro, except for some key differences that changes the bike’s ability, depending on its use case. The Explorer variants get a longer range by way of a 30-litre fuel tank, and gain 10kg of weight. The GT variants also get 19-inch wheels at the front and 18-inch wheels at the rear, both made of cast aluminium for better road performance. On the other hand, the Rally variants get 21-inch wheels at the front and 18-inch wheels at the rear, both spoked, for better performance off the road.
