Tiger signature styling is now even stronger on the Triumph Tiger 800 XCA. New premium bodywork includes high quality painted finishes with updated side panel designs, along with higher quality badges, graphics and detailing to deliver real presence. This also gives the Tiger a more contemporary and dynamic stance that highlights the on and off-road bias, while retaining the distinctive and instantly recognisable silhouette.
TECH UPDATES ON THE TIGER 800 XCA
There are a whole bunch of them actually, but here are a few that deserve mention. The bike gets a brand new 5-inch full colour TFT instrument panel, updated cruise control function, new Off Road Pro riding mode and illuminated backlit switchgear.
WHAT POWERS THE BIKE?
The heart of this beauty remains unchanged, a modern liquid-cooled 800cc triple cylinder engine that features ride-by-wire technology and offers a total of six riding modes. Mated to a six-speed gearbox the engine produces 95 horsepower. Which means there is enough and more for all the adventure touring that you can possibly think of.
