Cross Country or Cross-Continent…

Sometimes, the road isn’t enough. Sometimes, the ride leads you to places beyond the reach of most vehicles. But cross country or cross-continent, you don’t need tarmac when you ride a Tiger 800 XC. With premium WP adjustable suspension and a torque-laden 95 PS 800cc triple engine, there are few obstacles capable of standing in its way. Triumph Traction Control and a responsive ride-by-wire throttle set a new standard in off-road adventure, while an improved riding position lets you make the most of the trademark Triumph handling. Add spoked wheels, 21” at the front, for improved off-road performance and a high-level front mudguard and you have everything you need for thrilling off-road riding.

The all new Tiger 800 is 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.

The Tiger 800 XC has a more off-road bias and is available in two derivatives, the XC and range topping XCx. Both models have high levels of standard equipment in a with the XRx bringing more technology to the segment. Traction control and switchable ABS is as standard on all models delivering improved rider safety.

Whatever the road, whatever the distance, whatever the challenge, the new Tiger 800 range has been built to excel. Featuring a host of rider focused technology such as the standard fitment of Triumph Traction Control and switchable ABS, the new Tiger with its powerful and more fuel efficient 95PS triple engine is up for any task.

The all new Tiger 800 is 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.

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

Technology


Trip Computer


The LCD screen displays time, ambient temperature, fuel gauge, gear indicator, odometer and journey distance.

The Tiger 800 XRx and XCx models add more functionality with extended information including: journey time, average speed, average fuel consumption, range to empty and instantaneous fuel consumption.


Electronic Riding Modes

Switch from road to off-road to rider programmable modes on the fly – and overcome the weather, the road and whatever nature can throw at you.

The Tiger 800 range offers three different Riding Modes that allow the adjustment of the throttle maps, ABS and TTC to suit different road conditions. Select either ROAD or OFF-ROAD mode and the throttle maps, ABS, and Triumph Traction Control are automatically set.

RIDER MODE allows you to configure these settings independently to suit your own personal riding style. In RIDER MODE, the throttle maps can be switched between RAIN, ROAD, SPORT, and OFF-ROAD settings.


Traction Control

Every Tiger 800 features first-in-class standard fitment of Triumph Traction Control (TTC) that prevents the unexpected spinning of the rear wheel and cuts the engine torque to avoid the loss of lateral grip.

The XCX and XRX feature advanced Traction Control with three settings: 1. ROAD: optimised for road use, allowing minimal rear wheel slip 2. OFF ROAD: allows increased rear wheel slip (XCX, XRX only) 3. OFF: disables the traction control setting


Controls

The Tiger 800 models feature Cruise Control as standard, making long journeys more comfortable and helping fuel efficiency.
