TRIUMPH Motorcycles has announced the release of two new Tiger 1200 special edition bikes, the Desert edition and Alpine edition, featuring unique high specification setups and dedicated paint schemes.
The Triumph Tiger 1200 Desert Edition draws its inspiration from epic adventures taken across the most inhospitable deserts in the world. It features an exclusive Sandstorm paint scheme, dedicated graphics and new metallised SE radiator badges.
In addition to its unique paint scheme, the Tiger 1200 Desert Edition also features higher specification equipment compared to the mid spec XCx model, designed to further enhance its adventure capability and affordability.
This equipment includes a lightweight aluminum silencer and Triumph Shift Assist for clutch-less up and down shifts. It maintains the Tiger’s well known premium equipment levels, including Brembo brakes, and adjustable WP suspension.
Triumph’s Semi-Active Suspension technology is on board to manage the process, and a two-position seat height (835-855mm) is also available, adjustable by 20mm to suit riding style and terrain.
The New Alpine Edition is inspired by the beautiful mountain ranges of the world, and is available in exclusive Snowdenia White, with dedicated Alpine Edition graphics and SE radiator badges.
Based on the mid spec XRx model, the Tiger 1200 Alpine Edition adds similar features to the Desert Special Edition, including a lightweight arrow titanium silencer and Triumph Shift Assist.
The new Desert and Alpine special editions are powered by Triumph’s 1215cc Triple engine, the most powerful shaft-driven engine in its class, delivering smooth and immediate response through the gears, with 141PS of peak power.
It features a lightweight flywheel, lighter crankshaft and magnesium cam cover, all of which allows the engine to spin up faster and maximum torque of 122Nm.
Loaded with tech, the Triumph 1200 special editions also score an adjustable full colour TFT display, optimised cornering and ABS, as well as traction control, four ride modes, LED lighting, cruise control and an electronically adjustable touring screen.
