The engine is also used on its dual-sport sibling, the Tiger Explorer, although on the Trophy it produces slightly less power and has a taller sixth gear, more suitable for the touring proposal of this motorcycle. The base model will be complemented by the SE, which features extra equipment such as electronically adjustable suspension, a Bluetooth audio system, and a tyre-pressure monitoring system. The SE will be the only model sold in the United States, Canada, Australia and Brazil.
