Gets over 200 component changes and is available in three different variants.
The updated versions of adventure touring Tiger 800 is being launched, with prices starting at Rs 11.76 lakh (ex-showroom India) for the base XR variant going up to Rs. 13.13 lakhs and 13.76 lakhs for the XRx and XCx variant respectively. Triumph claims that this refreshed model has over 200 component level updates to the older Tiger.
In updates, the in-line3 engine is being updated to deliver power and torque lower down in the rev range from 94Bhp and 79Nm. A lower first gear has been added for better acceleration and traction off-road, along with a lighter free-flowing exhaust for a better note.
Moreover, the handlebar has been shifted back by 10mm and the bike also gets a seat that is adjustable by 20mm. Being the base model the XR misses out on a lot of equipment compared to the XRx, which costs a little more. The XRx gets a 5-inch TFT screen, LED lights with DRLs, a windscreen that comes with five adjustable positions, cruise control and higher spec Brembo brakes. In addition to this, there are four riding modes in XRx– Road, Rain, Off-road and Sport.
When it comes to XCx, it is a more off-road biased model. It gets a 21-inch front wheel with spokes compared to the 19-inch alloys that the XR and XRx come with and a different suspension as well. Further what differentiates the XCx from the XR twins is a set of fully-adjustable WP forks in the front and a preload adjustable WP mono-shock at the rear. It also gets an additional riding mode called Off-road Pro.
The Tiger is the best-selling adventure motorcycle in India at the moment, and this update should bolster their sales figures even further. The prices have been raised by around Rs. 1 Lakh for the XRs and by Rs. 50,000/- for the XCx model but the company is also offering plenty of new equipment to neutralize the costliness of these bikes.
