Triumph has announced they’re adding another off-road oriented bike to their lineup, the Tiger Explorer XC.

The motorcycle will have the same 1215 cc motor that’s found in the Tiger Explorer,with 135bhp with 89ft.lbs of torque; however, the XC version will sport spoked wheels (with tubeless tire capability) front and rear (a 19-inch unit up front, and a 17-inch unit in back). That should make the bike much more off-road friendly.

Other features include hand guards, dual 55 watt fog lights, and an aluminum skid plate; Triumph already has a strong accessory lineup planned for the machine, with 54 factory farkles designed for the bike.

The machine will have cruise control, traction control, switchable ABS, and a shaft drive. Service intervals are 10,000 miles, and the bike comes with an unlimited mileage two-year warranty. If you’re interested in buying one, you’d better like green – it’s the only colour available.

The bike will make it’s international debut at the Intermot show at Cologne, Germany, on Oct. 2; test rides should be available next April.
