New Triumph Explorer XCx India launch price INR 18.75 lakh

First launched in 2016, the flagship adventurer tourer now comes to India.


The New Triumph Explorer 1200 flagship adventure tourer was launched in international markets last year where it is available six variants – XC, XCx, XCa, XR, XRx and XRt. The XR variants are road biases whereas the XC variants are equipped for off-road usage. The one launched in India today, is the XCx trim.

All the variants are powered by a 1,215 cc inline three-cylinder engine which employs a shaft drive. Triumph says that the new engine will deliver more power and a linear torque curve throughout the rev range. The bike also gets a torque assisted clutch to reduce the effort required. Power output stands at 135.1 Bhp @ 9300 rpm and 121 Nm @ 6400 rpm.
