2018 Triumph Tiger 800XCx Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Tiger 800 Range

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

 

Overview

Delivering a seamless flow of torque across the rev range, the Tiger 800 is as perfectly suited to long distance rides as it is to tackling the tough stuff. The second generation 800cc engine features a ride-by-wire throttle system which provides smoother power delivery, better response, and lower emissions. The result is a 17% improvement in fuel efficiency that coupled with the capacious 19l fuel tank means you can ride longer

Available in two different flavours, the touring focused XR range (XR / XRX / XRX Low / XRT) and the off-road biased XC range, (XC / XCX / XCX Low / XCA) there is a Tiger 800 to suit everyone.

 

Controls

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

 

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 that prevents the unexpected spinning of the rear wheel and cuts the engine torque to avoid the loss of lateral grip.

The XCX/XCA and XRX/XRT 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 3. OFF: disables the traction control setting
