2016 Triumph Tiger 800 - First Look


Triumph Motorcycles have officially launched their all-new Tiger range in the Indian market. A total of 3 variants have been launched, which include the base Tiger XR, and the top-end XRx and XCx variants.

The iconic Tiger is Triumph’s answer to the mid-range adventure bike segment. The primary difference between the XRx and the XCx is that the former is meant for the road and serves as a comfortable touring bike while the latter is more focussed towards conquering off-road terrain. Apart from cosmetic upgrades, the new Tigers come with a revised 800cc triple-cylinder engine, and a vast array of electronic rider aids. There are significant changes to the suspension as well.
