Triumph’s top specification versions of the new Tiger 800, the Tiger 800 XCA and XRT, will land in dealerships across the UK later this month. Whether it involves tackling mile after mile of twists and turns, or leaving the tarmac behind and taking full advantage of the bikes’ unequalled off-road capabilities, thrill seekers are sure to find both range-topping models offer the ultimate experience in adventure bike riding.
Taking the acclaimed new Tiger 800 XRX and XCX as their respective base, the XCA and XRT come fitted with a host of extra equipment to make them the ultimate adventure partners.
Both models have at their heart the latest evolution of Triumph’s powerful torque-laden 95PS 800cc triple engine, which gives greater fuel efficiency and delivers up to 272 miles of riding on a single tank. With ride-by-wire giving more precise throttle control than ever, XRT and XCA riders benefit from the choice of three selectable riding modes, four throttle maps, cruise control, ABS and traction control.
The road-biased Tiger 800 XRT is perfect for riders intent on discovering what lies beyond the next horizon, offering a class-leading take on the distance riding experience. Rider comfort is enhanced through the addition of heated rider and pillion seats, alongside heated grips, as standard, making it a truly versatile machine for year-long riding. An uprated 650W alternator allows the rider to power more electrical accessories, while LED fog lights add an extra layer of visibility – enabling riders to see and be seen. Finishing touches to the bike include a neat CNC machined brake reservoir, an aluminium radiator guard, GPS mounting bracket and, to maximise convenience, Triumph’s Tyre Pressure Monitoring System.
For riders’ with an adventurous spirit that takes them off the beaten track, the new Tiger 800 XCA is the top-tier of the Tiger XC family. Featuring the same outstanding front and rear WP suspension as the Tiger 800 XCX – perfect for tackling even the toughest of terrains – the XCA benefits from a similar range of additional equipment including: heated rider and pillion seats, heated grips, an uprated 650W alternator, fog lamps, GPS mounting kit, aluminium pannier rails and CNC machined foot rests.
Adding further to their practicality and value, both bikes come with pannier rails ready to take Triumph’s aluminium luggage, handguards, a centre stand and an additional 12V auxiliary socket as standard. Added to this for the XRT are ‘Comfort’ rider and pillion seats and an adjustable screen, while the XCA comes with an aluminium sump guard and engine protection bars.
The new Tiger 800 XRT and XCA will be available in dealerships at the end of June and come with unlimited mileage and two-year factory warranty, as is the norm for all new Triumph motorcycles.
Riders taking advantage of TriStar, Triumph’s PCP product, can ride a Tiger XRT from just £115 per month, with the XCA available from £119 per month.
