The 2013 Triumph Tiger Explorer XC sits at the top of the new, large displacement adventure bikes class. The XC designation on the Tiger 1200 XC refers to "cross country," and it makes tracks from its standard-model sibling with beefier, longer-travel suspension, and a larger-diameter front wheel (21 vs. 19 inches). The Triumph Tiger Explorer is quite capable of rolling on long past the end of the pavement although the appeal for most riders is that is that the Tiger Explorer XC simply offers more versatility as a road machine, as it's superior to many sport tourers and full-dress tourers.
K&N Replacement Air Filter for 2012 & 2013 Triumph Tiger Explorer 1200
The headline feature on the Triumph Tiger Explorer platform is the all-new 1215cc three-cylinder engine. The largest transverse triple ever created by Triumph. The engine is, in a word, extraordinary. With peak horsepower of 135 at the crank and nearly 90 foot/pounds of torque, this is not only an extremely fast Triumph, it also pulls effortlessly like a Santa Fe locomotive. And now, by simply swapping out the OE air filter with a K&N TB-1212 reusable air filter, you can bump up the performance to the next logical level.
