In India, the company has only introduced the XCx trim. It is equipped with features like traction control, switchable ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) and two riding modes (Road and Rain).
The British luxury bike maker has already introduced a range of adventure motorcycles in the country. The Explorer is the range-topping model in its league. It is powered by a 1215cc, 3-cylinder engine that churns out a maximum power output of 139PS at 9,300rpm and a peak torque of 123Nm at 6,200rpm.

The sales of the motorcycle will be limited to just 20 units across India. It is imported to India as completely built-up unit, which makes it a tad expensive than the competition. The bike is offered in three paint jobs – Jet Black, Crystal While and Lucerne Blue. Overall silhouette of the bike is the same offered on the other Tiger range, but it gets sharper styling and muscular looks.
