TRI­UMPH FIRST show­cased the new Tiger range at EICMA 2017 and now the same mo­tor­cy­cles are avail­able in In­dia. The com­pany is of­fer­ing only three vari­ants as of now and these in­clude the XR, XRx, and top of the line XCx model. Tri­umph claims that the Tiger 800 range has re­ceived over 200 changes which in­clude vis­ual and me­chan­i­cal changes. The mo­tor­cy­cle gets a new front end com­plete with LED head lamps with in-built LED DRLs. The front wind­screen is now ad­justable too. The seat has been re­designed and the rid­ing po­si­tion is claimed to be bet­ter. The TFT LCD in­stru­ment con­sole is brand new too. The Tri­umph Tiger 800 comes with an up­dated 800cc, in-line 3-cylin­der en­gine. It makes the same power as be­fore (94bhp@ 9500rpm and 79Nm@8000rpm). The mo­tor is paired to a 6-speed gear­box. While the mo­tor has been re­tuned to of­fer bet­ter ride­abil­ity, the ex­haust is now lighter, free flow­ing and smaller than the one on its pre­de­ces­sor. The elec­tron­ics have also been re­vi­talised and the tiger now gets a new “Off Road Pro” rid­ing mode, with a choice of up to six rid­ing modes. This makes the Tiger far more ride­able than be­fore. ABS can now be switched off for the rear wheel. The Tiger 800 range will take on the new BMW F 750 GS, Du­cati Mul­tistrada 950 and even the Honda Africa Twin among oth­ers.
