2012 Triumph Tiger Explorer Specs:
It wouldn’t be a streetfighter comparison withoutTriumph’s Speed Triple. The British bike has defined the class ever since its 1994 debut. Over the years the S3 morphed into icon status, serving as the flagship model of the reborn, Hinkley-basedTriumph. The Speed Triple has also been a perennial favorite of the MotoUSA testing crew, and a regular in our naked motorcycle comparison reviews.

VICTORIA has a glaring gap in its road-safety regime: the testing and licensing of motorcyclists. As The Age has revealed, the system is regarded as ''a joke'' and ''totally inadequate'' by accredited private providers who conduct testing for VicRoads. Car licences outnumber motorcycle licences 11 to one, but the ratio of car-to-bike fatalities is four to one. Almost one in three deaths and serious injuries among riders involved novice riders. Police note that rider error caused about 70 per cent of trauma crashes, compared with 50 per cent for other drivers. Everything points to inadequate training and testing.
