Two new Triumph Tiger 800s revealed

1 of 4

Triumph have added two new Tiger 800s to expand the range to six with the firm claiming the latest two – named XRT and XCA – are more travel focussed.

The two bikes have been pitched as range-toppers and add a raft of new equipment including a larger capacity 650W alternator to power standard fit heated rider and pillions seats, LED foglights and provide power for ancilliaries such at satnavs or heated clothing.

The XRT has a 19in front and 17in rear cast alloy wheels, the XCA gets longer travel WP suspension to tackle off road riding and has a larger 21in front wheel.

The two new bikes are also available in two new colours; Intense Orange for the XRT and Matt Khaki Green on the XCA. Both bikes also get fitted pannier rails for the optional Triumph Expedition aluminium pannier system.

Other than the mechanical parts already listed, under the skin both bikes remain unchanged with the 94bhp three-cylinder engine, chassis and running gear all the same.
