Triumph Motorcycles has rolled out a new feature for its popular Tiger 1200 range: the Active Preload Reduction.
- The new advancement adds to the bike’s already advanced Showa semi-active suspension, aiming to give riders greater control.
- The Active Preload Reduction allow riders to manoeuvre the Tiger better and confidently.
The feature adjusts the rear suspension preload as the motorcycle slows down, potentially lowering the seat height by up to 20mm when the bike is at a standstill. This allows for an easier reach to the ground, boosting riders’ confidence.
Current seat height options range from 850mm to 895mm depending on the model, but the new feature allows for even greater customisation.
To activate the Active Preload Reduction, new customers can simply press the ‘Home’ button on the switch cube for one second. Existing Tiger 1200 owners can avail of this update at their next dealer service.
Steve Sargent, Chief Product Officer at Triumph, stated that this on-the-fly feature lowers the bike’s center of gravity at slower speeds, making it more accessible and increasing riders’ confidence.
The Tiger 1200, celebrated for its agility and maneouverability, further solidifies its standing in the competitive adventure motorcycle market with this addition.
