Triumph announced the expansion of its Tiger Explorer range from two to six models for 2016 – the XR, XRx, XRt, XC, XCx and XCa.

Differentiating between the more on-road focused XR range and the more off-road focused XC range, the models start from the base XR and XC up to the top of the line XRt and XCa. All six models receive a new exhaust system for its 1215cc inline three-cylinder engine with a shaft final drive. Triumph claims more power and torque, as well as a smooth power delivery across the triple’s linear torque curve with a light torque-assisted clutch.

The new 2016 Triumph Speed Triple R and Speed Triple S models may look fairly similar to the previous models externally, there's some major upgrades to the engine and electronics for both bikes. The trademark 1050cc three-cylinder engine has been extensively reworked, with a total of 104 changes that are claimed to provide more power and torque while achieving 10 percent better fuel efficiency. A new ECU is part of the new electronics package that enables the inclusion of five riding modes (Road, Rain, Sport, Track, and a Rider Configurable mode that allows the rider to choose throttle response, TC, and ABS levels). Brembo monobloc calipers are standard on both the S and R, along with new styling that features a Daytona 675R-inspired tail section and revised radiator shrouds and mufflers.
