A bit too far off road to tickle my hankering, so I'm out as they say on Dragons Den.
And another Triumph promo vid showing stuff that 90+% won't be doing.

Received it by e-mail today.
Having owned 2 Explorers and a T1200 XRx I will certainly go for a testdrive when possible.....late 2021?

From the engine sound in the vid on Triumph's website, I reckon its got a 1-3-2 firing order like the 900, so it won't be smooth like the 1050

Triumph Centrestand & 3 box panniers.  TOR, dogbone out, Arrow race tune.  GIPro gear indicator.  SWMotech light mount with 3500 Komys.  SWMotech chainguard. Nitron R1.  Hand me down pointy indicators off son's Street Triple.

It is now on the official Triumph website, just advertising blurb on the prototype,

Bloody 'T' plane crank, based on opinions on the 900 this doesn't sound likely (but I will wait reserve judgement for the moment)


Off the website:

"Beautifully smooth and refined, with incredible response and tractability, equally perfect for kicking up the dirt, sweeping through the corners, or crossing continents in style."

"Delivering more power and character than its closest competition, the only other shaft driven bike in the class, the new 1200 engine brings all of the low down torque delivery of a twin, married to the top end punch and incredible soundtrack that only the Triumph triple delivers."

so does it have some form of 'shiftcam' that turns it into a Triple when you want to get a shift on  :087:  :008:

If they want to play the big twin game it is gonna have to be pretty exceptional to even compete with say a KTM 1290S yes I had one,
I think it is a big gamble, I thought the later versions of the explorer had a great motor, it was only the sheer size and weight that stopped me buying one and I bought the KTM,
the vid shows nothing but dirt! (ridden by a professional rider, quite possibly Rob Herring) really! do they really think people need a 'T' plane crank for offroad prowess,
I would like to know how many people actually take their big 'adventure' bikes properly offroad
they will loose sales  from people who loved the Triple

Yep, there's a "T plane" in the new 1200.  I rode the 900 Rally Pro when it first came out. There was a lot to like about it, but I concluded I preferred the lower vibrations of my now 9 year old Tiger 1050. It will be interesting to see (and feel) how they've implemented the T-plane firing order in the larger engine.
