2012 Triumph Tiger 800

Tiger 800. Built to take you.

Rugged, practical and great fun. Tiger 800. Long awaited, ready to appeal. At home in the city. Loves the open road. Ultra maneuverable. Classic Triumph style. Load up with luggage and watch it go. Built for the journey. Built for your lifestyle. Tiger 800. Your bike, your way.

Tiger 800 comes highly-specified as standard. Take a look and you’ll find neat touches all around. Two-piece adjustable seat, suspension and levers combine with hand guards to ensure your comfort, while a built in immobilizer and switchable ABS option are designed with you and the bike’s safety and security in mind.

Practicality is key with the Tiger 800. Superb agility comes as standard thanks to wide, tapered aluminum bars and lightweight cast wheels (19” front and 17” rear). A well appointed rear rack doubles up as a passenger grab rail while up front the comprehensive instrumentation gives you all the vital information you need to know on your journey.

The Tiger 800 also comes with high capacity generator to allow the fitment of multiple electrical accessories for even greater practicality. Over 60 bespoke accessories have been developed for the Tiger 800 series, including rugged hard and soft luggage solutions, heated grips and tire pressure monitoring sensors.

TRIUMPH TIGER 800

- Class-leading 95PS 799cc three-cylinder engine
- Adjustable seat height and handlebar position
- Switchable ABS option
- Coded key immobiliser for added security
- 645w generator allows fitment of multiple electrical accessories
- Wide range of official accessories available even more practicality

Designed from the ground up to meet the demands of some of the most discerning motorcyclists, the Tiger 800 comes highly specified and delivers a unique experience for the adventure-minded rider.

This unique experience comes courtesy of the new three-cylinder 799cc powerplant, delivering a class-leading 95PS and an extremely accessible 79Nm of torque. With its flat torque curve and smooth power delivery, the Tiger 800 has been designed to be
easy to ride in all conditions, including off-road.

The Tiger 800 features a tough steel frame capable of carrying large amounts of luggage and coping with the rough and tumble of off-piste riding. Ten-spoke alloy wheels, 19” at the front and 17” at the rear, allow for the fitment of a wide range of tyres, from dirt-biased dual purpose items to pure road rubber for those who wish to take advantage of the Tiger 800’s qualities as an excellent bike to commute and tour on. A class-leading 19 litre fuel tank ensures infrequent stops for the Tiger 800 rider.

Triumph has given the Tiger 800 a high specification direct from the factory. Inverted 43mm front forks are graced with twin 308mm floating brake discs and two-piston floating calipers. A sophisticated anti-lock braking system is available as an option and can be turned off when riding on tricky terrain.

At 210kg including a full tank of fuel, the Tiger 800 is very manageable machine. The rear shock is adjustable for preload and the Tiger 800 can be tailored to meet the rider’s personal taste through the adjustable aluminium handlebars and seat, which can be set at 810mm or 830mm, with lower and higher seat options available as official accessories. A rear rack with generous pillion grab handles also comes as standard, while a coded-key immobilizer prevents theft through ‘hot wiring’.

The comprehensive instrumentation includes a fuel gauge and trip computer, while a high-specification 645w generator is fitted to allow riders to safely fit electrical accessories such as heated grips, auxiliary lights and satellite navigation equipment. A huge range of official Triumph accessories have been developed for the Tiger 800’s launch, these include numerous hard and soft luggage solutions, tyre pressure monitor sensors, adjustable touring screen, centre stand and off-road style hand guards, bash plates and high level front mudguard.

Three colour options are available for the Tiger 800: Crystal White, Phantom Black and Venom Yellow, with the adoption of a graphite coloured frame for the 2012 model year.
