The Triumph Tiger 800 Range Explained…

With a 6-model line-up in the range, the Triumph Tiger 800 truly offers something for all riders.  This article explains the essential differences between the specifications of each model in the Triumph Tiger range. You can click on any photo or link to find a more detailed description.

The Tiger 800 range comprises 3 road-orientated machines (XR, XRX, XRT) and 3 bikes with a more off-road focus (XC, XCX, XCA).  Low-Seat versions of the mid-range XRX and XCX are also available.

All Tigers come with Triumph’s triple-cylinder 800cc engine which punches out 95PS / 94BHP @9,250 rpm / 79Nm torque @ 7,850 rpm.  The engine has been developed to give a 17% increase in fuel economy over the preceding model (65mpg in mixed use) giving a tank range of 272 miles.

The XR and XC (and all other models in the new Tiger range) come fitted with ‘Ride by Wire’ throttle system (smoother, lighter), Traction Control & Switchable ABS as standard on all models.  ABS is switchable between road and off-road settings (or can be switched off altogether).

Road (standard)
Rain (reduces throttle response)
