Triumph’s 800 on top
What the middleweight ‘ Trumpet’ gave us
AN ADVENTURE BIKE FOR THE MASSES
OK, there’d already been the V-strom 650 and F800GS, but the Tiger took middleweight adventure to a new level.
AN OFF-ROAD TRIPLE?
Yes, it’s developed from the 675 street bike, but the Tiger 800, especially in more dirt-orientated XC guise, is a truly capable off-roader.
BIG ABILITY, SMALL BIKE
The 800’s popularity is largely down to its huge versatility. It really CAN do it all. Except it’s not large. Or huge, either.
REALLY CONFUSING MODEL NAMES
Today, there’s not just the Tiger 800, but the XR, XC, XRX, XCX, XCA and XRT. Got that? Yeah, took us a while, too…
