    When Triumph unveiled the Tiger Explorer 1200, their first full-sized adventure touring bike, the ADV motorcycle industry held its breath. Could Triumph&#8217;s new triple compete with BMW&#8217;s ever popular R1200GS? Was this an authentic adventure bike? But because the bike has quite a few things in common with its Bavarian brethren &#8211; a shaft-drive, single-sided swing arm, 1200cc power plant, ABS and traction control &#8211; Triumph&#8217;s new Tiger appeared, on paper, to be an excellent adventure motorcycle. And now, after numerous ride reports and reviews, we know the new Tiger is an excellent addition to the adventure motorcycle scene. To celebrate its successful integration into the industry and to prepare the bike for true adventure, we decided to outfit our 2013 Triumph Tiger Explorer 1200 with a handful of Touratech accessories.

    Featured below are the Touratech accessories installed on our 2013 Triumph Tiger Explorer 1200:

    Zega Pro Pannier System: $1,325.70 &#8211; $1,537.50
    The Touratech Zega Pro pannier system is the ultimate luggage solution for your Tiger Explorer 1200. Zega Pro panniers have provided secure and dry storage for adventure riders the world over. The aluminum body and removable lid feature rugged corner protection, as well as low-profile loops that provide a flat surface to secure additional dry bags. Crafted with 1.5mm aluminum and stainless steel rivet construction, Touratech&#8217;s Zega Pro panniers are available in 31, 38 and 45 liter sizes and three different finishes: bare aluminum, anodized silver and anodized black.

    Stainless Steel Crash Bars: $397.00
    A simple fall on the Triumph Explorer can get expensive. If your motorcycle tips over, no matter the road or conditions, you'll want full protection between the expensive plastic fairings, engine, and the ground. For the most complete protection of your Explorer's engine and fairings, install a set of Touratech stainless steel crash bars.
    Made of stout 1-inch thick stainless-steel tubing, Touratech crash bars are designed to take the impact of a fall and distribute the force around the frame and engine, protecting both the engine and your expensive plastic fairing pieces. Our designers have done an excellent job of keeping the bars compact while complimenting the overall lines of the Triumph 1200. These bars give the Tiger Explorer an off-road adventure style image that can't be ignored.

    [​IMG]

    Aluminum Radiator Guard: $147.20
    The Touratech Radiator Guard for the Triumph Tiger Explorer 1200 protects your critical and expensive radiator from rocks and debris, while maximizing airflow to your bike's cooling system. The louvered design and air intake ports have been optimized to direct air flow into the Triumph's radiator while protecting it from damage.
    Made from laser-cut aluminum at the Touratech factory in Germany, Touratech guards are made to exacting standards and have protected adventure motorcycles in the most rugged and remote corners of the world.

    [​IMG]

    Quick-Release Stainless Steel Headlight Guard: $130.80
    Don&#8217;t let the lights go out on your next adventure! Touratech has developed a stainless steel guard with quick-release mount that allows you to easily keep the headlight on your Triumph Tiger Explorer 1200 clean and free from damage.

    [​IMG]

    Touring Tank Bag: $371.30
    This expandable tank bag from Touratech is the perfect piece of travel luggage for your Triumph Tiger Explorer 1200. With its secure and easy to use mounting system, it is a great bag to take with you on long or short trips, and is removed easily for refueling or to use as a backpack.

    [​IMG]

    Passenger Seat Touring Bag: $329.70
    The Touratech passenger seat bag offers the best solution to keep your luggage close to the motorcycle's center of gravity. This bag is easy to strap on the passenger seat of the Tiger Explorer 1200 and offers water-resistant zippers, two-piece construction (base plate can be left on the seat and quickly secured with two zippers), elastic band at the top for securing gloves, loops for additional straps, backpack carrying function with included shoulder straps, and reflective trim.

    [​IMG]

    Zega Pro Topcase System: $735 - $767.60
    A stainless steel rack specifically designed for the Triumph Tiger 1200 Explorer supports the Zega Pro top case which is made from 1.5 mm thick aluminum at our factory in Niedereschach, Germany. The case is waterproof, dust-proof and extremely tough. The heavy duty protective plastic strips on the corners and bottom edge are bolted on - which means they can be replaced if necessary. The single latch of the top case can easily accept an integral lock cylinderso your possessions will be secure while you're away from the motorcycle.

    Seattle, WA &#8211; (February 27th, 2013)Touratech CEO and renowned adventure rider, Herbert Schwarz, recently returned from a 1,500-mile motorcycle expedition to Madagascar where he tested Touratech&#8217;s line of accessories for BMW&#8217;s new water-cooled R1200GS. On this expedition, Herbert put the bike through its paces in a variety of terrain; including asphalt, gravel, sand and mud, as well as numerous water crossings. Watch the video to hear Herbert&#8217;s thoughts about riding the new water-cooled GS on the other side of the earth.

    And while the new water-cooled R1200GS is a capable adventure bike direct from the dealer, the Touratech accessories Herbert installed provided safe and secure storage, as well as critical protection to ensure that both he and the bike completed the trip safely.

    &#8220;From the riding experience, it feels a lot lighter, even though it&#8217;s the same weight as its predecessor. I think with the exception of the small fuel tank, it&#8217;s really a good adventure bike. It has all the genes from the previous GS model plus the new 125hp engine and new suspension, which makes it the #1 adventure bike on the market.&#8221; - Herbert Schwarz, CEO, Touratech

    Among the parts installed on Herbert&#8217;s 2013 R1200GS were Touratech&#8217;s new crash bars, hand guards, expedition skid plate, stainless steel headlight guard, radiator guard and a Zega Pro pannier system.
