The All-New TIGER 800 XC and XR

Triumph Motorcycles has launched the brand new Tiger 800 XC and XR line-up – one of its best-loved and most critically acclaimed motorcycles ever. The longest running adventure story, with a bloodline that began with the gold-medal winning Tigers of the 1936 International Six Day Trial, continues with a new generation that incorporates the entire trademark Tiger spirit and takes capability to a whole new level.

There are over 200 major updates to off-road capability and all road, all day comfort including upgrades to the chassis and engine, shorter first gear ratio, improved exhaust note, Off Road Pro riding mode with a choice of six settings and an adjustable screen.

New high level of state of the art technology includes a full colour TFT instrument panel, LED lighting, illuminated, ergonomically designed, backlit switchgear and five-way joystick control and updated cruise control.

With the major Triple engine update, the Tiger is now more responsive, better character and sound and is an optimised Triple power plant. The new lighter, freer flowing exhaust gives the Tiger a better sound over the previous model.

There is now more Tiger style and highest-ever level of finish and detailing to the new bike. With new premium bodywork and new high quality badges, graphics and detailing and also new colours and a more contemporary and dynamic stance, the new Tiger is a lot different to its predecessor.

The new, significantly updated Tiger 800 XC and XR family has once again pushed the boundaries of this world-renowned range with over 200 chassis and engine upgrades. These are complemented by a suite of major off-road improvements that work hand-in-hand with carefully crafted on-road enhancements.

Triumph has specifically targeted improvements to technology, comfort, and style alongside the introduction of a new generation engine that maximises the rider experience. As a result, the new Tiger 800 is better in every way – both on the road and off road.

“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”, said Paul Stroud, Chief Commercial Officer for Triumph Motorcycles.

“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.”

Every new Tiger 800 represents a huge step-up in rider technology with improvements including full-colour TFT instruments, up to six riding modes, high-specification Brembo front brakes, optimised suspension configurations, handlebar-mounted switchcubes incorporating elegant backlit buttons, distinctive signature all-LED lighting, updated cruise control, enhanced chassis, and premium bodywork.

A mass-optimised 800cc Triple engine now gives more immediate power delivery and a peak power output of 95PS. It has even more character and a lighter exhaust system with a sportier soundtrack that together transform the new generation engine. There is a new, shorter ratio first gear to enhance off-road traction, all-road low speed responsiveness, and more immediate acceleration that gives the rider a truly thrilling feel. In addition, the new Off- Road Pro riding mode on the XC models allows an advanced rider to take complete control off road.

Triumph has enhanced the rider ergonomics across the whole Tiger 800 range. This includes moving the handlebars back by 10mm for a more commanding riding position, higher specification Brembo front brakes, a range of premium WP or Showa suspension components fitted across our range, new handbook-approved off-road tyre specification fitment, new five-position adjustable windscreen and aero diffusers for segment-leading aero protection, and a new seat compound giving all-day riding comfort.

Tiger signature styling is now even stronger across the latest 800 range. New premium bodywork includes high quality painted finishes with updated side panel designs, along with higher quality badges, graphics and detailing to deliver real presence. This also gives each Tiger a more contemporary and dynamic stance that highlights the on and off-road bias of each model, while retaining the distinctive and instantly recognisable Tiger 800 silhouette.

The Tiger 800’s trademark handling and category-defining core technologies are the foundation of this bike’s superb riding experience. All the Tigers’ essential adventure standards are maintained with ABS, traction control, ride-by-wire throttle, cruise control, heated seats and grips (on selected models), power sockets, and a two-position seat height (810-830mm on XR models, 840-860mm on XC models) adjustable by 20mm to suite riding style and terrain, and a low ride height XRx model variant that at 760 mm is 50mm lower than the standard XR range of seats.
