Triumph unveils 2024 Tiger 1200

Triumph Motorcycles has revealed the 2024 Tiger 1200 family, featuring refinements to the engine and enhanced comfort and ergonomics. The 2024 model also has improved cornering ground clearance, a reduced seat height with Active Preload Reduction and distinctive new colors.

Triumph’s 1160cc triple engine now delivers superior low speed control, while retaining the exciting and unmistakable triple character from its T plane crank.

With changes to the crankshaft, alternator rotor and balancer to increase engine inertia, plus some associated engine calibration changes, the Triumph engineering team has been able to create a smoother and more precise low rev torque delivery. Customers will be able to feel increased smoothness while accelerating or decelerating, especially at low speeds. An updated clutch design will also mean that riders experience a smoother engagement when changing into first gear.

Triumph has also enhanced the all-day comfort of the Tiger 1200 for customers looking for long-distance touring capability. The engine itself is now more smooth and refined, thanks to a revised engine balancing strategy, which improves comfort through all the key rider touchpoints.

The dampened handlebars and risers, which have been popular on the Explorer models, have also been introduced to the GT Pro and Rally Pro, delivering a smoother ride with increased mirror visibility.

The rider seat has been re-designed with a flatter profile, providing more space for the rider to help reduce fatigue on longer trips. The accessory low seat, which reduces the seat position by almost an inch to give a lowest seat height of less than 34 inches on the GT Pro and less than 35 inches on the Rally Pro, has also been designed to be significantly more comfortable. A longer clutch lever has also been introduced, providing increased space for riders’ fingers.

Triumph has increased the cornering ground clearance of the Tiger 1200 GT Pro and GT Explorer models by lifting the footpeg positions and moving them closer to the bike. The new Active Preload Reduction feature, which was revealed in August 2023, offers the rider greater confidence by reducing the rear suspension preload as the Tiger 1200 slows to a stop, lowering the seat height to almost an inch, simply by pressing the ‘Home’ button on the switch cube for one second.
