Triumph states that "over 100 changes" have been made on the new motorcycle, which include removal of the 'Explorer' suffix. So, the bike will now be called the Tiger 1200 instead of the Tiger Explorer. On the cosmetic front, the motorcycle retains a similar design language as the outgoing model, barring some minor revisions done to the fairing and the body. Noteworthy changes include all LED-lighting, a full-coloured 5.0-inch TFT instrument panel, which is seen on the Tiger 800, an updated cruise control system and electronically adjustable windscreen.
