New 2015 Tiger 800

New 2015 Tiger 800Introducing the all-new 2015 Triumph Tiger 800 – a dynamic Adventure motorcycle designed to deliver whatever you want no matter how you ride. On road or off, the new Tiger’s manners, riding position, handling and responsive engine give the rider everything required to enjoy every ride regardless of climate or conditions.

For 2015 there isn’t just one new Tiger 800, there are four. The Tiger 800 XR and XRx are more focussed to the world of road riding whereas the Tiger 800 XC and XCx have a more off-road intent. All models have high levels of standard equipment whilst the range topping XRx and XCx bring more technology to the segment offering the rider a range of standard equipment and rider focussed technology. This technology has been developed to optimise the ride both on and off-road and includes:

• Ride by Wire

• Switchable ABS

• Triumph Traction Control

• Three Riding Modes (XRx and XCx)

• Cruise Control (XRx and XCx only)

• Trip Computer

In addition to the host of technology and equipment advances, the new Tiger 800 features our cleanest and most efficient triple engine to date. The original Tiger 800 redefined what riders should expect from the middleweight Adventure class and the new Tiger has pushed that further. The 800cc unit is a rewarding engine that pulls strongly and smoothly from low speeds, delivers a wide spread of mid-range power and still lets the rider use the higher revs, right up to the 10,000rpm limit. Making the most of the engine’s eager character has now been made even easier thanks to a lighter and more precise gear change action, which now uses parts from Triumph’s class-leading Daytona 675 Supersport bike. Fuel consumption has been hugely improved – up by 17% on the “mixed use” cycle (European GTR2 test cycle) to 65mpg, and given the 19 L fuel tank capacity it now has a potential range of 272 miles to a dry tank.

Mated to the heavily revised engine is a class-leading chassis which translates to outstanding handling on the road, and increased capability off-road. All new XC and XCx models feature WP suspension to further boost the Off-Road riding qualities of the new XC models. The WP 43mm USD fork, with rebound and compression damping is easily adjustable through dedicated clickers on the fork tops. The rear suspension unit is a WP mono shock adjustable for preload and rebound.

With improved ergonomics, allowing you to make the most of the increased range, improved thermal efficiency and a host new details and features the new Triumph Tiger 800 is truly no ordinary adventure.
