The most memorable adventures are often the toughest tests of both rider and machine. Each Tiger 1200 was designed to feel as good on the last mile of your adventure as it did on the first, and with a 3-year unlimited mileage warranty you can focus on enjoying the ride with maximum peace of mind.
Following an exhaustive program of testing and development, each element of the new generation was crafted and refined to deliver in every condition, to give you the ultimate adventure ride. From the new lightweight frame, with its separate rear subframe and removable pillion footrest hangers, to its optimized new Tri-Link swingarm with integral shaft drive, the new Tiger 1200’s chassis was developed for the perfect balance of strength, stability, and weight.
Combined with the new, more commanding riding position, slimmer seat and tank, enhanced bar and footpeg positions, and high-specification semi-active Showa suspension and Brembo brakes, the new generation takes the Tiger’s agile and dynamic handling to a whole new level.
With an adjustable seat height of 33.4in to 34.2in on the GT, GT Pro and GT Explorer, and 34.4in to 35.2in on the Rally Pro and Rally Explorer, with an option to go 0.7in lower still with the low accessory seat, and an all-new plush rider and pillion seat design optimized for easy standover and maneuverability, the new generation takes comfort to a new level as well.
