Triumph Motorcycles has just launched their latest 2018 Triumph Tiger 800 XC and XR ranges at the EICMA Milan Show.
The all-new 2018 Tiger range have been heavily updated with over 200 upgrades to the chassis and engine.
Taking a step further into the future of motorcycling, the new Tiger 800 range now features the latest TFT instrument panels, all-round LED lighting, new cruise control and many more.
The longest running adventure bike in the industry from Triumph Motorcycles has added the all-new 2018 Triumph Tiger 800 XC and XR into their ever-growing line up of premium motorcycles in the market. Which a rich history dating back to the mid 1930s, the all-new Tiger 800 ranges promises outstanding riding capabilities than ever before.
To ensure that the new Tiger 800 XC and XR are able to tackle any riding conditions thrown to them, the chassis has been heavily updated with over 200 upgrades which trickle down to its engine as well. The 800cc, liquid-cooled, 12-valve, DOHC, in-line 3-cylinder engine which now punches out 93hp is upgraded to ensure better response, sound and overall characteristics thanks to a reworked gear ratio and exhaust system.
Taking a step further into the future of motorcycling, the new Tiger 800 range now features the latest TFT instrument panels, all-round LED lighting, updated user-friendly cruise control mechanism and new backlit switchgear and joystick control. This makes it easier to switch between six riding modes which include a brand new “Off Road Pro” for more fun in the sun.
Judging by the styling, both the 2018 Tiger XC and XR come with Triumph’s highest level of bodywork detailing, colours and graphics with a much more contemporary yet dynamic riding stance. So any rider who rides the new Tiger 800 range will look good both on and off the bikes.
A brand new braking and suspension package are also upgraded courtesy of Brembo and WP Suspensions. Other unique features include ABS, traction control, ride-by-wire throttle, cruise control, heated seats and grips, power sockets, and a two-position seat height that are specifically-tailored for each Tiger 800 model.
All in all, there are six different variants to choose from the road-going XR, mid-range XRx to the top-of-the-line XRT whereas the off-road lovers can opt for either the XCx or the fully-loaded, super adventure ready XCA. For those who are slightly vertically-challenged, there’s also the XR x LRH (Low Ride Height) model. Triumph kept true to their words when they say that there’s a Tiger for everyone and anyone.
