A new Active Preload Reduction has been developed to reduce the rear suspension preload as the Tiger 1200 slows, allowing the seat heights to be reduced.
For the GT, GT Pro and GT Explorer there are currently two seat height settings – 850mm and 870mm, while for the Rally Pro and Rally Explorer these are 875mm and 895mm.
Through the accessory-fit low seat option, riders are already able to lower the seat position by an additional 20mm, giving a lowest seat height of 830mm on the GT family and 855mm on the Rally family.
The new Active Preload Reduction feature allows these seat heights to be reduced further. Depending on the combined weight of the rider, pillion and luggage this could lower the riding height by up to 20mm when the motorcycle comes to a standstill, offering the rider greater ease and confidence.
New customers will be able to access this new minimum preload feature by simply pressing the ‘Home’ button on the switch cube for one second.
Chief Product Officer Steve Sargent said: “This new feature can be enabled on the fly, lowering the centre of gravity at slower speeds, making it even more accessible, offering riders more confidence at slow speeds and better contact with the ground as they come to stop.
