Optimised Cornering ABS & Traction Control
To give the rider the handling, control and response they want, when negotiating well-made roads and broken terrain in all conditions, the Tiger Explorer offers, as standard, multi-channel switchable ABS and traction control on the entry level XR model. The other four models come with cornering-optimised ABS and traction control, to ensure superb stability even when approaching the most challenging apex.
The XRX, XRT XCX, AND XCA models all feature an Inertial Measurement Unit. Through a series of strategically positioned sensors, the unit monitors and responds to the bike’s movement status. The unit calculates the lean angle of the bikes and uses this measurement to ensure greater stability by optimising the performance of the ABS and traction control systems which helps control slip situations while cornering. Corner optimised braking controls the maximum applied pressure, depending on the lean angle of the bike, by modifying the front and rear braking balance. The result is a system which, in an emergency, a controlled stop is greatly improved.
