2015 Triumph Tiger 800 XC Review

2015 Triumph Tiger 800 XC on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

You never know where you’ll go or what you’ll come across on a Triumph Adventure bike.

That’s why we have engineered them to cope so when you ride way out, you and your Triumph work as one, conquering miles, varied terrain and obstacles in your path. Because we know it’s not just about where you can go, it’s how you get there.

Wherever ‘there’ ends up being.

Being a Tiger, this is a bike built for adventure. Exploring new roads, even new countries and not stopping just because the road does.

We built the Tiger 800XC to be just like the Tiger 800, but with a little bit more

Using the rugged Tiger 800 as a starting point, we added a pack of special off-road equipment so you can keep on going when you run out of tarmac.

The three-cylinder engine is the same 800cc triple found in the Tiger 800 so it’s got loads of torque and muscular power. And the tough steel frame and long distance fuel range are from the Tiger 800 too. The added XC is what gives you the next-level off-road ability.

This is a hard-core bike that you can cross continents on, whether or not there are roads going in that direction. Just load it up and go.

Engine
Performance

The three-cylinder 95PS engine, like the rest of the Tiger 800XC, is made for adventure.

With so much torque spread right across the rev range you can pull hard from low revs. That’s great for overtaking without the need to work the gearbox and touring effortlessly through mountainous terrain, but it’s also exactly what you need to dig yourself out of tough off-road situations.

But this is a Triumph so there’s a lot more to it than clinical horsepower.

We gave the Tiger an animated snarl that adds a whole new layer of character. An engine that communicates and encourages you to use it to the best of its, and your, ability.
Transmission

The rugged dependability applies just as much to the transmission: six gears, a tough clutch with a light lever action that’s needed in difficult conditions, and chain drive for simplicity, reduced weight and the best ground clearance This makes it easy to alter the final drive ratio for sustained low speed riding.

 

Equipment and Technology
ABS

The ABS system on the Tiger 800XC uses the latest technology to prevent wheel lock-up in any condition you find yourself in. And it can be switched off for off-road use, in case you want to lock a wheel up deliberately.
Immobiliser

Just in case your Tiger 800XC attracts the wrong kind of attention, we’ve added a high technology security system. It detects a microchip in the key body and if it’s not present the ignition system is disabled.

This prevents a copy of the correct key being used to switch the bike on.
Instruments and Computer

With the Tiger 800XC you are fully equipped for all kinds of conditions, on-road and off. As standard you get the rear rack, along with the sturdy hand protectors and the coded key immobiliser for security.

The dash shows you all the information you could need including average and instant fuel economy and range remaining, fuel gauge, service indicator, gear position and clock as well as speed and engine rpm. It’s also preconfigured for the optional Tyre Pressure Monitoring System.
Alternator

Serious all-weather riders expect to be able to use additional electrical equipment, so we fitted the Tiger 800XC with a high output alternator. Plenty of power for you to use heated grips, spotlights or electrically heated clothing. All of which are available as extras.
Screen

We added the aerodynamically optimised screen to take the force out of the slipstream and make your ride comfortable at sustained high speed.
Luggage Capacity

You never know where you’ll end up on a Tiger 800XC so you need to prepare for any eventuality. And that can mean taking a lot of equipment with you. So luggage options include the capacious adventure-style panniers and top case, tank bags, tail packs and inner bags to suit every need. All developed in conjunction with the Tiger 800XC, so wherever you go you can take it all with you. There’s even a clever lever behind the headlights for when the bike is loaded up, to dip them lower and compensate for the tail-down stance. No tools needed, just pull the lever and the lights are pointing along the road once again.
