Major updates for 2024 Tiger 1200

For model year 2022, Triumph had rebuilt the Tiger 1200 from the ground up and the British Allroad was stronger, lighter and more agile than ever, but there was apparently still room for improvement. Triumph says it has worked on the feedback from the completely new Tiger 1200 and has made some significant improvements to the 2024 model based on that.

Triumph has unveiled new features and improvements for the Tiger 1200 family for 2024, making the range even more advanced and refined. The updates include further refinements to the engine, improved comfort and ergonomics, improved cornering ground clearance, lowered seat height with Active Preload Reduction and striking new color schemes.

Starting with the engine, where engineers have made changes to the crankshaft, alternator rotor and balance shaft to increase the engine’s energy, plus some associated changes to the engine calibration. According to Triumph, this should have created a smoother and more precise torque delivery at low speeds. In addition, the clutch design has been updated for a smoother first gear engagement.

Triumph also says it has improved the comfort of the Tiger 1200 for riders looking for long-distance touring capabilities. The bike itself is now even smoother and more refined, thanks to a revised engine balance, which improves comfort at all key contact points for the rider.

The damped steering and risers that have proven so popular in the Explorer models have also been introduced in the GT Pro and Rally Pro, providing a smoother ride with better visibility in the mirrors.

The rider’s seat has been redesigned with a flatter profile, giving you more space and less fatigue on longer rides. The optionally available low seat, which lowers the seat height by 20mm to 830mm on the GT Pro and 855mm on the Rally Pro, is also designed to be significantly more comfortable. A longer clutch lever is also available, which provides more space for the rider’s fingers and provides even more comfort, especially on longer rides.

Triumph has also increased the ground clearance of the Tiger 1200 GT Pro and GT Explorer models by raising the footpegs and moving them closer to the motorcycle. Launched in August 2023, the new Active Preload Reduction feature provides rider confidence by reducing rear suspension preload when the Tiger 1200 comes to a stop, lowering the seat height by up to 20mm, simply by Press the ‘Home’ button for one second.

The Tiger 1200 is now available in four variants, with new liveries for 2024. The ideal companions for a road-oriented, adventure ride, the Tiger 1200 GT Pro and GT Explorer are now available in the striking Carnival Red, in addition to the already available Snowdonia White and Sapphire Black. The Tiger 1200 Rally Pro and Rally Explorer can tackle any terrain, and are available in stylish new Matt Sandstorm and Jet Black, in addition to the popular Matt Khaki.

Chief Product Officer Steve Sargent:

“The updates to the 2024 Tiger 1200 range deliver an even more refined ride, broadening its global appeal. Although the current model has already had a major impact on this segment, more than doubling annual Tiger sales 1,200 around the world, our world-renowned engineering team is always looking for new ways to refine and improve every model.

By listening to customer feedback and incorporating some of the new improvements already making their way into the new Tiger 900, we were able to create a significant improvement in the driving experience.”
