Up front, the new Tiger 1200 gets 48 mm WP upside down forks with 190 mm of travel and is electronically adjustable. Thank to its six-axis inertial measurement unit which opens doors for most of the advance technologies and the Tiger 1200 is the first motorcycle in its category to get a semi-active suspension set-up. The adventure tourer is tamed with 305mm twin disc brakes with Brembo four-piston calipers at the front and a single 282mm disc with a Nissin two-piston caliper at the rear.

The 2018 Triumph Tiger 1200 comes with a host of updates to the design and features as compared to the previous model.

For this model year, the bike lets go of the "Explorer" moniker and gets minor revisions in its bodywork, an upgraded electronics package and new technological features. It will directly compete with BMW R 1200 GS and Ducati Multistrada 1200 range.
