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, Showa adjustable suspension, 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.
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.
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.
From the road-focused Tiger
XR, mid spec XRX and range topping XRT, to the off-road hungry Tiger XCX and
fully-loaded XCA – not forgetting the XRx low ride height model – there is a
Tiger 800 for every person, every ride and every adventure.

Maintaining its position as

delivery lower down the rev range and an even better soundtrack. The new
torque-laden 1200cc engine enables a breathtakingly smooth reliable delivery
