2016 Triumph Tiger 800 XCA www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits


Advanced ABS

The XCA features an advanced ABS system that can be changed between ROAD, OFF-ROAD, and OFF.

This provides the rider with a level of electronic intervention under braking whilst optimizing their off road enjoyment.
Traction Control

The traction control can be configured to Road, Off-Road, or Off settings. In the Off-Road mode, the traction control system allows increased rear wheel slip compared to the Road mode. Riders can configure their traction control preferences in conjunction with the 3 Rider Mode settings.
Throttle Maps

With a choice of 4 different throttle maps, riders can select the optimum setting to meet both riding and weather conditions. The throttle maps can easily be changed between Rain, Road, Sport, or Off-Road via the switch cube to provide greater levels of control to meet changing conditions.

On the XCx, riders can very simply configure the bike to the terrain with the choice of 3 Rider Modes. This automatically configures the ABS, Traction Control, and Throttle Maps to best tackle the route ahead. With a choice of ROAD, OFF-ROAD, or PROGRAMMABLE RIDER MODE, all of the electronic safety devices are optimized for the conditions.
