Triumph Announce The New Tiger 800 XRT And XCA

Triumph has announced the final two models of revamped six model Triumph Tiger range with the addition of the 800 XRT and 800 XCA. Each model is fitted with a host of extra equipment with the XRT based upon the road orientated XRX while the XCA builds upon the more dirt focused XCX. Both still use the same 94 hp 800cc triple engine.

The Tiger 800 XRT comes standard with heated rider and passenger seats and heated grips as well as cruise control, an advanced trip computer, adjustable screen and hand guards. Tiger 800 XRT also comes equipped with a larger 650W alternator, meaning that additional equipment can be powered without having an adverse effect on the bike’s electrical system. To further enhance the Tiger 800 XRT’s touring capability LED fog lights are fitted as standard and the bike comes prepared with the standard fitment of pannier rails ready to accept the optional Expedition luggage set.

Triumph is stating that the new Tiger 800 XCA sits atop the model tree and comes with WP suspension front and rear giving greater front and rear wheel travel to tackle tough terrain. Details such as heated grips, heated rider and passenger seats, CNC machined foot rests, a larger 650W alternator to power accessories and LED fog lights as standard complete the XCA’s premium presentation. Finally the XCA is fitted with aluminium pannier rails (which accept the optional Expedition luggage) and 3 auxiliary sockets to complete the adventure offer.

All Triumph Tiger 800’s come with a suite of rider-focused technologies including ride-by-wire throttle, for improved response and rideability, three switchable riding modes and switchable ABS and traction control as standard.

The new Tiger 800 XRT and Tiger XCA come with an unlimited mileage, two-year factory warranty, as do all new Triumph motorcycles.

At this stage, pricing and availability has only been confirmed for Europe and Australia, but expect an announcement on North American sales within the next few days.
