Triumph announced two special edition versions of the Tiger 1200 inspired by desert and mountain landscapes. The Desert Edition and Alpine Edition models are based on the mid-tier Tiger 1200 XCx and XRx, respectively, but add titanium Arrow exhaust, shift assist and, of course, special edition paint and graphics.
Triumph Tiger 1200 Alpine Edition
The Tiger 1200 Alpine Edition is based on the XRx, the middle-tier model from the more road-biased side of the family, above the XR but below the XRt. Like the XRx, the Alpine Edition comes standard with semi-active suspension, an adjustable TFT full color display, keyless ignition and LED lighting. Triumph calls the paint scheme “Snowdonia White”, while the graphics feature a mountain motif. The Alpine Edition also comes with a metallized “SE” badge on the radiator covers.
The Alpine Edition is priced at $19,300, or $400 more than the XRx but $2,000 less than the XRt.
