Confirmation of a cassette gearbox would be interesting, and perhaps lend credence to an upcoming ADV Tigger, but I've not read a single thing about it in the press so far.

This doesn't prove much however, except that I devour most of the mags available in the UK..

I had an exchange with some folks at Triumph and they said an Adventure model ain't happening.

Cassette gearbox means that Triumph can use the motor in various mounts. I'm guessing that like the VFR12 unit - the motor can be easily adopted for chain drive.

I called the dealer here in tucson to check on a part for my tiger 800 and asked about when they would be getting an Explorer. They have one on the floor. It's got a deposit on it. May try to go check it out tomorrow or sat.

Ah, that also makes sense.

According to the Cycle World ride report the shaft drive bevel gear is bolted on to the transmission making it easy to replace it with chain drive should they wish. If the cassette drive is real then this is engine could be used in a variety of bikes.

Question

Does anyone know at what rate these bikes are going to start trickling in?

I have an opportunity to buy a bike that arrived yesterday, but it's black - not my first colour choice.

No interest in buying a new bike and having it repainted.

"(The right-angle gear pair that takes power from the gearbox to the shaft drive is part of a bolton unit, allowing Triumph to someday convert this engine to chain drive if required for a different application, though Warburton says there are no immediate plans for this.)"

They have their techs being trained next week so hopefully the Explorer will follow shortly after.

I bloody hope so. The waiting was bad enough when Europe were getting theirs but now the US is rolling them out.............................

Just got this e-mail yesterday...

The all new Tiger Explorer is finally here.

And it’s definitely been worth the wait. With a robust shaft drive,
class-leading handling and all-new 1215cc engine, it’s ready to take
on the world. All it needs is a rider. Are you in?

For a test ride or to place a deposit,
visit your local Triumph dealer today.

I put a deposit down on a Tiger 800XC last week and the dealer didn't have the Explorer yet, but he said real soon.

That is good news! I called my dealer 2 days ago and he was still thinking it would be coming early May. I am supposed to call back early next week for an update.
