Triumph Motorcycles has launched the new Tiger 800 XC and XR motorcycles at the EICMA show in Milan. The company claims to have made more than 200 upgrades to the chassis and engine. The 800cc triple-cylinder motor now produces 94bhp of power and 79 Nm of torque. The gear ratios have also been tweaked, the new shorter ratio 1st gear enables enhanced off-road traction, low-speed manoeuvrability and acceleration. With the addition of the ‘Off Road Pro’ mode, it now gets a choice of up to six riding modes.
Paul Stroud, Chief Commercial Officer for Triumph Motorcycles said; “We’ve developed a host of major new technology and performance updates designed to enhance the new Tiger 800’s capability both on and off-road. With developments that complement the Tiger’s accessible and agile, easy riding style, as well as its existing distinctive Tiger poise and presence, the new 800 line-up is built for maximum adventure – every single day.”
The Tiger 800 gets a more bold design featuring sharper body panels, new graphics, aggressive headlamp design and a 5-way adjustable windscreen at the front. Equipment updates include a new 5-inch full-colour TFT display, switch cubes and 5-way joystick, illuminated backlit buttons and updated cruise control.
