TRIUMPH’S 2022 TIGER 1200 FAMILY REVEALED | News

The name might be familiar but Triumph’s long-teased 2022 Tiger 1200 shares nothing with the existing 1215cc model

Significantly lighter and more powerful, Triumph’s long-teased 2022 Tiger 1200 has, according to Triumph, been designed to be the world’s most capable, agile and manoeuvrable large-capacity adventure motorcycle.

Delivering a transformation in capability and performance on the tarmac – and the most dynamic and exciting experience off-road – the new generation brings the best of all worlds with a whole new Tiger line-up, including for the first time two all-new 30-litre tank Tiger Explorer options.

Furthermore, the Tiger 1200 family is backed by the surety of a new three-year/unlimited-kilometre factory warranty for extra peace of mind.

The Tiger 1200 range, comprising the GT Pro and GT Explorer as well as the Rally Pro and Rally Explorer, is expected to arrive in local showrooms in the second quarter of 2022. Australian pricing has yet to be confirmed.
