2016 Triumph Tiger Explorer Specs and Release Date

Recently, it was reported that the new 2016 Triumph Tiger Explorer series was in its final testing stages, and based on our estimations, the release date for this bike will be in the first half of 2016. Design improvements include new wider handlebars to give the rider added control in any road condition. This bike is designed to be an adventure class motorcycle, which is the reason for its high riding position. Another reason for the dominant and high riding position is that it provides wide and clear visibility for all road conditions, to help riders maneuver around obstacles. This bike eliminates fatigue and stress that is common during long hours of riding, with its new cruise control. As for the technological features, this bike will have a LCD along with an adjustable windscreen.

All of the new units in this upcoming series have MSRP set at $17,499, and will be available in two different colors, Matte Khaki Green and Graphite.

The ESPFI system, Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection, serves an impressive bottom-end engine. All riders know that the hydraulic clutch has an important role, and this new motorcycle edition is engineered to optimize it. The riding experience will be powerful with the new clutch and make low-speed maneuvering smooth. The 6-gears transmission can keep the RPM steady at its highest speeds. To operate the dependable cruise control – there is a single button on the left grip. The definition of the whole engine is highlighted on this bike, because of the black and chrome color combination.

The 2016 Harley-Davidson Softail Slim S will have a lightweight body, at only 712 lb. There is one concern about this bike, the ground clearance, the distance seems too short to ride over uneven roads or to make a sharp turn. Nevertheless, as far as major experts are concerned – this next generation from Harley will be a fun motorcycle to ride.

The most notable changes to the 2016 Harley-Davidson Dark Custom Iron 883 series are the new shock breaker and the forks. Some bike experts consider this series to be the best factory bobber of any breed of this brand.

The wheel section will have the new 9-spoke cast aluminum wheels, the front wheel is 19 inches high, and the rear is 16 inches high, both with a black finish. We will see a lot of black on the block engine and the lower section. The color options include Charcoal Satin, Black Denim, Olive Gold with an eagle-and-shield tank logo, or Hard Candy Custom Gold Flake with flame detail paired with black fenders.

There are no changes in the air-cooling equipment, except in its shape. Other new equipment includes the blackout exhaust system, and the round air filter that will expand the view of the rubber mounted engine. All of the cylinders use the 76.2 mm x 96.8 mm, with the combination of ESPFI, which stands for Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection. That brings out the engine heat to 49 horsepower and torque at 50 lb-ft. The riding experience will be familiar to riders of the previous model. The most distinctive updates are the new cartridge dampers located inside of the 39mm stanchions. This new series has a new fork with triple-rate progressive springs, with new pistons and new valve stacks that can handle rough roads.

The new features of the 2016 Harley-Davidson Dark Custom Iron 883 series are mind-blowing.
