Last year British bike builder Triumph, completely remade the Tiger 1200 lineup, with the aim of giving adventure riders the ultimate machine to match their adventure dreams. This means the Tiger 1200 GT, GT Pro, and GT Explorer remain as awesome as ever for the 2023 model lineup.
All Tiger 1200s are pushed ahead via the 1160cc Inline Triple making 147 hp and 95 lb-ft of torque. Mated to a smooth 6 speed transmission and a lightweight low-maintenance shaft drive. Brembo Stylema® brakes are fitted to all Tiger 1200 models, plus a Showa semi-active suspension, selectable riding modes, and a stunning 7” TFT display with connectivity to the Triumph app.
The road-focused GT models come with cast wheels, 19” on the front and 18” on the rear, and adjustable seat and windscreen heights. The GT Pro has standard heated grips, cruise control, hill control, adaptive cornering lights, and a couple of added riding modes.
Moving into the GT Explorer, the most significant changes are the jump from a 20L fuel tank to a 30L tank and Blind spot detection. A heated seat and tire pressure monitoring add to an already loaded machine, turning the bike into a highly capable long-distance adventure ride.
