See on the website photos of the new Explorer that clearly has an engine that has been shrunk in the wash along with the bike,be interesting to see if the 1050 gets the same treatment never mind the firing order.

Thats one small bike compared to the original tank of a bike which Ive never been a fan of,the shot from the rear had me thinking they got it wrong and it was the 900 someone at Triumph is certainly working hard,hopefully the road version will be just as interesting.

Looks like a shaftie 900. Mebbe it is. Seat to peg looks short.

As Triumph must 9 months away((at least) before the launch this could be no more than a mock up,interesting they have strapped the shock res on the subframe and clearly the photo was taken in either Spain or Thailand or maybe he was on the wrong side of the road  :001:

Id love to know the politics in/at Triumph because ever since they got involved in Moto2 its like they have joined the 21st century with some of the stuff that is now appearing.

Not a 900, crank end is completely different,
(my thoughts) reckon this is an XC version or Rallye as it will likely be known, road version will go GT like the 900
I really wanted to buy an Exp but it is way too big and heavy for me,
I hope the new one is as compact as it it looks, don't think you can comment on how it looks till it has some colour and contrasting panels unless you just do not like the trellis frame look

As I said in the Tiger 900 thread:

If it has anything like the power to weight ratio of my S1000XR and all the bells and whistles I want like a decent windshield, electronic suspension, a quickshifter and cruise control, I will seriously consider the new Tiger  :001:. Triples still rule for commuting :020:.

All the best,

Of all the big adv bikes the Tiger Explorer with electric ajustment had the quietest screen (imo)
other than the quickshifter current tiger 1200 has all the above

Hi Tiggersteve,

I drove the last Explorer and it felt like a tank, nowhere as nimble/sporty as my S1000XR or the Tiger Sport for that matter.
I hope the new one is a nice mix of the latter two bikes .
A lower centre of gravity would also be a huge plus.

All the best,
