Triumph has launched the 2022 Tiger 1200 in India, with prices starting at INR 19.19 lakh, ex-showroom, Pan India. The 2022 Tiger 1200 made its global debut in December 2021 with five variants, but India is getting four variants:
|Variant||ex-Showroom price (in INR)|
|Tiger 1200 GT Pro||19,19,000|
|Tiger 1200 GT Explorer||20,69,000|
|Tiger 1200 Rally Pro||20,19,000|
|Tiger 1200 Rally Explorer||21,69,000|
Which means India is not getting the base GT model, but maybe in the future. But anyway, highlights of the 2022 Tiger 1200 family include lightweight construction, a new engine, better handling, and a comprehensive technology package.
The 2022 Tiger 1200 is claimed to be more than 25 kg (55 lbs) lighter than the previous generation, thanks to a new lightweight frame with bolt-on rear aluminium subframe and pillion hangers. Other features include a 20-litre fuel tank for GT, GT Pro & Rally Pro; a 30-litre fuel tank for GT Explorer & Rally Explorer; new LED lighting with DRL; Adaptive Cornering Lights (not available on GT); a 7-inch TFT instrument display with integrated My Triumph Connectivity system; optimized Cornering Traction Control with IMU; up to six riding modes; heated grips and seats (heated seats standard on GT Explorer & Rally Explorer); Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (standard on GT Explorer & Rally Explorer); Hill Hold (not available on GT), and Showa semi-active suspension.
The cast aluminium wheels measure 19-inch at the front and 18-inch at the rear on GT, GT Pro & GT Explorer models, while Rally Pro & Rally Explorer models feature spoked wheels measuring 21-inch at the front and 18-inch at the rear. Braking duties are handled by twin 320 mm floating discs at the front gripped by Brembo M4.30 Stylema calipers and a single 282 mm disc at the rear gripped by a Brembo single-piston caliper.
The 2022 Tiger 1200 family is powered by a new T-plane triple crank engine. The 1,160 cc in-line 3-cylinder unit develops 110 kW (150 metric hp) at 9,000 rpm and 130 Nm (96 lb-ft) of torque at 7,000 rpm. For the Belgian market, the output figures are limited to 85 kW (116 metric hp) and 121 Nm (89 lb-ft); the latter is limited to 127 Nm (94 lb-ft) for the Brazilian market. The engine is paired with a 6-speed gearbox with a slipper clutch. Wet weight ranges between 240-261 kg (529-575 lbs).
