Twisted Throttle Mods a Triumph Explorer 1200

Thursday, November 1, 2012
Our friends over at Twisted Throttle, who’ve helped on a number of MotoUSA’s project bikes over the years, recently took a 2013 Triumph Explorer 1200 and added a host of upgrades to improve comfort, performance, increase bike protection and enhance visibility. They ended with an even more aggressive looking machine with more off-road and long-distance travel ability than is reasonably conceivable for most mortal motorcyclists. Check out the Press Release issued by Twisted Throttle below that lists all the mods installed and available for the 2013 Triumph Explorer 1200 and be sure to watch the video at the bottom of the page to see the 1200 in action. You’ll also get to hear from designer Nate Bastian and installer Shawn Johnson about the process of getting this Triumph decked with some of the best ADV gear on the market. - MotoUSA Byron Wilson.
