Tri­umph launches TWO more Tiger 800s

Motorcycle Monthly - - News -

Tri­umph has re­vealed two new Tiger 800s which have been added to the range, so nowthere’s six dif­fer­ent on/off-road 800s to choose be­tween.

Here’s the run-down on what you get with the bikes:

Two new Tiger 800 mod­els launched – the more road biased XRT and the more off- road biased XCA.

Sit­ting above the al­ready welle­quipped XRX and XCX mod­els, the new XRT and XCA fo­cus on rider com­fort.

Larger ca­pac­ity 650W al­terna­tor to power the stan­dard fit­ment heated rider / pas­sen­ger seats, heated grips, and LED fog lights plus other an­cil­lary de­vices such as GPS sys­tems or heated cloth­ing.

New­colours of in­tense or­ange on the XRT and matt khaki green on the XCA

Both bikes are ready to tour with the fit­ment of pan­nier rails for the op­tional Tri­umph Ex­pe­di­tion alu­minium pan­nier sys­tem.

The new Tiger 800 XCA is the top tier of the Tiger XC fam­ily. Fea­tur­ing the same 95bhp triple en­gine and ride-by­wire throt­tle as its road-biased sta­ble­mates, the new model gets a host of off-road fea­tures. Chief among th­ese is the WP sus­pen­sion front and rear giv­ing greater front and rear wheel travel to tackle the rough stuff. Heated grips, heated rider and pas­sen­ger seats, CNC ma­chined foot rests, a larger 650W al­terna­tor to power ac­ces­sories and LED fog lights are all fit­ted as stan­dard as are the alu­minium pan­nier rails (which ac­cept the op­tional Ex­pe­di­tion lug­gage) and three aux­il­iary sock­ets.

This is the new Tiger 800 XRT - the more road-biased ver­sion, the XCA is pic­tured over to the right. The XCA gets bet­ter sus­pen­sion and a big­ger front wheel amid the changes.
