    I get lost with the Triumph range. Gen 1 Explorer sounds about right. It was very cramped for room, which is why I didn't persevere.

    Gen 1 went from 2012 up to 2016 I think. During 2016 into 2017 the Gen 2 was released with the latest Gen 3 (Tiger 1200 range) out from 2018.

    I've ridden most of them in one iteration or another and whilst the 2018 Gen 3 has a better seat, better riding position, better instrumentation and screen, deffo better brakes, I honestly couldn't tell there's been any real significant improvements to handling, performance or weight. The Gen 1 was always a fine handling and performing bike imho. The change to semi active suspension just seemed to add more unnecessary expense and gadgetry for little real world gain (we're not setting lap records around race tracks so the only real noteable improvement in handling for me was less dive at the front under braking).

    The sad truth is, with later bikes you're getting less for more (ok...more sophistication but things that used to be standard like engine bars now come extra).

    That's exactly what it sounds like.
