The introduction of a full
Ride by Wire system that interacts with the ECU opens up a whole new level of
technology in this new motorcycle. With
the inclusion of advanced ABS, traction control the new Tiger 800 leads the
segment as a technological tour de force and adds new levels of active safety.
The switchable ABS system is
standard on all Tiger 800 models and uses the latest technology to prevent
wheel lock-up, ensuring maximum confidence and control in any road
conditions. On the XR the ABS can be

Triumph’s Traction Control
(TTC) system prevents the unexpected spinning of the rear wheel, cutting the

The Tiger’s 94bhp three
cylinder engine gives the bike a unique character and sophisticated feel.
Inside the engine the raft of changes have reduced mechanical noise and
strengthened the premium feel of the triple. The 800cc unit is a rewarding
engine that pulls strongly and smoothly from low speeds, delivers a wide spread
of mid-range power and still lets the rider use the higher revs, right up to
the 10,000rpm. Making the most of the engine’s eager character has now been
made even easier thanks to a lighter and more precise gear change action, which
now uses parts from Triumph’s Daytona 675 supersport bike.
The XR model is fitted with
Showa suspension, calibrated to ensure excellent handling on any surface. The
front suspension is a 43 mm Showa USD fork, now anodised black. The rear
suspension includes a Showa mono-shock which is preload adjustable, allowing
easy adjustment and flexibility to tailor the suspension setting to meet the
requirements of every journey, be it a
spirited solo ride or a comfortable two-up with panniers adventure.
The new Tiger XR is fitted
with light-weight cast aluminium wheels, 17-inch diameter at the rear and
19-inch at the front, measuring 4.25 and 2.5 inches in width respectively, they
ensure superb handling and stability.
The new Tiger 800 has been
given a new look with a new radiator shroud and tank side panels that have
sharp lines and taut surfaces. The new bodywork gives the bike a more prone,
dynamic stance but the styling isn’t all just about cosmetic gain, the Tiger’s
fuel tank styling also ducts hot air from the engine away from the rider’s
legs. The new “Titanium” powder coat finish on the double-tube frame highlights
the rugged looks of the frame whilst the semi-matt finish on the engine
combined with the bike’s black wheels and handlebars gives the new Tiger a
sophisticated, premium look.
Alongside the adjustable rider
seat height and handlebar position the bike gets a large-for-the-class 19 litre
fuel tank, a quick-adjust headlight angle lever for 2-up riding, an Auxiliary
power socket near the ignition switch and an aluminium sump guard as standard
on all models.
