Triumph Announces Major Updates to Tiger 800 XC and XR

Recommended Posts


The Tiger 800 XC and XR, known for their powerful 800cc triple engines, are part of a bloodline that began with gold-medal winning Tigers of the 1936 International Six Day Trial. Triumph was the motorcycle of choice for both the multiple winning British teams and famously Steve McQueen’s US ride entry in 1964. Decades later, the story continues with a new generation that takes the Tiger’s capability to a whole new level.

The new, significantly updated Tiger 800 XC and XR family has received over 200 chassis and engine upgrades. These are complemented by a suite of major off-road improvements that work hand-in-hand with carefully crafted on-road enhancements. Triumph has specifically targeted improvements to technology, comfort, and style alongside the introduction of a new generation engine that maximizes the rider experience. As a result, the new Tiger 800 is better in every way – both on road and off.

Technology Advances

Major Triple Engine Update

A mass-optimized 800cc Triple engine now gives more immediate power delivery and a peak power output of 94 HP. It has even more character and a lighter exhaust system with a sportier soundtrack that together transform the new generation engine. There is a new, shorter ratio first gear to enhance off-road traction, all-road low speed responsiveness, and more immediate acceleration that gives the rider a truly thrilling feel. In addition, the new Off-Road Pro riding mode on the XC models allows an advanced rider to take complete control off road.

Improved Ergonomics

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 and Showa adjustable suspension, new handbook- approved off-road tire specification fitment, new five-position single hand adjustable windscreen and aero diffusers for segment-leading aero protection, and a new seat compound giving all-day riding comfort.

Signature Styling and Premium Finish

Tiger signature styling is now even stronger across the latest 800 range. 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, while retaining the distinctive and instantly recognizable Tiger 800 silhouette.

Tiger 800 XC and XR Core Technology

The Tiger 800’s trademark handling and category-defining core technologies are the foundation of this bike’s superb riding experience. All the Tigers’ essential adventure standards are maintained with ABS, traction control, ride-by-wire throttle, cruise control, heated seats and grips, power sockets, and a two-position seat h (810-830mm on XR models, 840-860mm on XC models) adjustable by 20mm to suite riding style and terrain, and a low ride h XRx model variant that at 760 mm is 50mm lower than the standard XR range of seats.

Different Tiger 800 models

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 h model – Triumph has aimed to make available a Tiger 800 for every person, every ride and every adventure.

The new Tiger 800s are expected to start arriving on US showroom floors around mid-February 2018. Prices to be announced.
