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.
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.
Stopped by the local dealer
Will test ride tomorrow
"(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............................. :huh
im with you moggi seems everyone else is getting theirs but im stuck waiting waiting waiting !!!!
Even worse for me since I bet Canada gets them after the states
Just got this e-mail yesterday...
The all new Tiger Explorer is finally here.
And its definitely been worth the wait. With a robust shaft drive,
class-leading handling and all-new 1215cc engine, its 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.
atleast you guy are getting some answers i have no word on when mine should be in and seems like every dealer around other then mine has them
Just test rode the Explorer here in Raleigh, NC.
Triumph - excellent job. No comparison to GS or Tenere.
Not really surprised by this, It seems Triumph doesn't communicate effectively with the dealers on newly released models. Same thing happened with the release of the Tiger 800s.
At least you and I will get the 1215.2 version which will have ironed out any problems
i like the way you think
+1. I know how y'all feel.
I put $1000 down on a black XC non-ABS in November 2010. When the first 800s showed up, I did not get one. After bitching for weeks, I got a white XC ABS. Weeks after everybody else. I will never preorder anything from Triumph again.
