We Want Your Tiger 800

First launched in 2010, the tiger 800 has become one of Triumph’s best successful selling bikes and brilliant all-rounder adventure bike. With a starting price of £8500 OTR back in 2015. At that time, new ranges were added to the list of 800.

The XCx and XRx bosting better fuel consumption from the redesigned engines gaining more miles per gallon. A more modern look body with ABS and traction control as standard. The newer versions, the XCx and the XRx, came with cruise control and switchable ABS. The XR deemed to be more pacific use for the road, and XC was more designed for off-road use, being 35mm taller and better suspension, having added crash bars and sump guards for protection.

The Tiger is powered by an inline three-cylinder engine, DOHC 12 valve unit. That produced a healthy 94bhp. The bike can be tuned by Triumph, so it would become suitable for A2 licence holders.

In 2018 the Tiger was updated and is known as the third generation. Triumph claimed at this stage, they had introduced over 200 modifications from the previous model. The new model has top class long distance and comfortable, the engine is fun now, and the handling is like a road bike. It was launched with a starting price of £12k for the XRt model, but you could pick up a base model XR from just over £9k from Triumph. Overall the new version is smooth to ride with lots of upgrades that make the experience of riding this middleweight adventure bike a good one. The Tiger seems to do everything you need it to. For the average-sized rider, you probably would need a bigger one.
