Used advice Triumph Tiger Explorer
Convenient and handy

As a motorhome, the Triumph Tiger Explorer stands out from many a super tourer. As a sovereign three-cylinder machine with a cardan shaft, it inspires long-distance and frequent drivers.

With the Tiger 800, Triumph had successfully presented in 2010. Encouraged in this way, two years later they ventured into the premier class of large enduro bikes and presented a 1200 model with the Triumph Tiger Explorer. With a strong 137 hp. There, however, the bar was already quite high, because the long-term bestseller BMW R 1200 GS and competitors such as Ducati Multistrada, Honda Crosstourer, Moto Guzzi Stelvio or Yamaha Super Tenere were already romping around in the extremely popular market segment with different concepts, but engines of similar displacement.

In order to see land there, you had to be able to make good sales arguments. That’s what the Triumph Tiger Explorer did. It immediately won the travel rating in the MOTORRAD mega test. The silky-soft and quite fuel-efficient, but powerful three-cylinder, well thought-out and high-quality travel equipment and ergonomics as well as the astonishingly neutral cardan drive without annoying reactions were convincing on a long tour.

Why do you actually have the Trophy in the program?

So much so that some Triumph dealers found it difficult to explain to touring riders why they even had the Supertourer Trophy in their program when the Triumph Tiger Explorer could actually do everything better. Fully compatible with a passenger and extremely comfortable, despite the rather high weight of a good 270 kilograms when driving, but very handy and precise when cornering – so the enduro hardly needs to fear a versatility test. Only for off-road driving it is not good, too top-heavy. The XC variant with wire-spoke wheels, which has been suggesting more adventure since 2013, is also: a road tourer.

For four years there was not much change in the facelift, and the Triumph Tiger Explorer sold well between 600 and 800 times a year. For the 2016 model year, the engine was revised – more torque and power – and five different versions were offered in this country, almost all of which had an electronic chassis. So the big Tiger stays at the top dog from BMW and the claim to be one of the best travel all-rounders.

Market situation

A little over 3,000 Tiger Explorers have been sold in total since the first edition in 2012. It is easy to find used as a used vehicle, not cheap, but inexpensive to get hold of.

8,680 euros

Example: EZ 4/2012, 54,686 km

Offer from the authorized dealer: one year warranty, full service history. Annual inspection new, first hand. Hyperpro suspension elements, cruise control

  • from 7,500 euros

Example ad: 66,000 km, EZ 7/2012, very well-kept condition, accident-free, full equipment, crash bars, good tires. Long-distance km from 1st hand (last service at 64,000 km), delivery / trade-in / financing possible, 7,995 euros (dealer from Schleswig-Holstein)

Low price level. The density of offers is very low for less than 8,000 euros. Apart from machines that are clearly used in everyday life and extreme cross-country skiers with more than 50,000 kilometers on the clock, there is hardly anything in the advertisements.

  • from 9,000 euros

Example ad: 22,000 km, EZ 10/2012, HU 9/2018, men’s motorcycle – cpl. Luggage set, additional original Triumph topcase, tank bag system with all pockets, etc., basis for negotiation 9,500 euros (private provider from Bavaria)

Medium price level. For many interested parties, the psychological pain threshold is 10,000 euros. There is very high demand among them, and the Explorer also mutates into a slow-moving item. Tip: take a close look at such “problem cases” and negotiate hard!

  • from 11,000 euros

Example ad: 3,900 km, EZ 06/2015, Arrow sports exhaust with ABE, SW Motech handlebar riser, Powerbronze comfort seat, two-year factory warranty and then two-year Triumph additional warranty, inspection carried out, transport possible throughout Germany, 11,990 euros (dealer from Lower Saxony)

High price level. Bargain hunters lurk here for annual bikes or top new bikes with lots of extras. Compared to new purchases: savings of a few thousand euros possible. Exciting.

Dealer interview

The Triumph Tiger Explorer offered by you has a previous owner and more than 50,000 kilometers on the clock. Why is it for sale??

Oh, that’s actually quite funny. The previous owner was one of the first buyers when the Triumph Tiger Explorer was released in April 2012. He was satisfied and happy with the bike. Now that the new Explorer was presented at the beginning of the year, he wanted a machine with zero kilometers again. But not the revised model – as we first thought – but definitely the same Explorer from the first series that he already had. Well, then we just took his old one in payment and he now has a new “old” one.

Such mileage is not the exception for such a young model?

Not with us. We have traditionally always had a large number of touring riders as customers. Therefore there were already owners of a Yamaha FJR 1300 with six-figure mileage. The Triumph Tiger Explorer is doing very well here, I would like to say that hardly any other dealer in Germany sells as many of them as we do. The frequent drivers in our clientele easily unwind 20,000 kilometers per year. We therefore have a comparatively large number of machines for customer service in our workshop and have good experience with this model. And I can only say: weak points unknown. If the service is done regularly every 16,000 kilometers, there are no problems.

Unexpected costs excluded?   

As a used buyer, one should note that the 32,000 inspection is relatively expensive. The valve clearance is checked, liquids, oil, candles, air filters and other things are on. Almost six working hours plus parts can be planned. That can quickly cost 700 to 800 euros. So watch out if someone offers a Triumph Tiger Explorer with just under 30,000 kilometers.

Who is usually interested in the Tiger Explorer??

Tiger 800 climbers as well as older people switching from street machines, whose older children have left the house and whose wife is now participating in the motorcycle hobby as a passenger. With the Triumph Tiger Explorer, they’ll find a comfortable touring machine for two. Mostly, however, it is those interested in a large travel enduro who initially considered a BMW GS, but were irritated by the driving behavior with the telelever system. After a test drive with the Explorer and its conventional fork, you can often change your mind.
