New for 2011, the Triumph Tiger 800 sees the British
manufacturer enter the middleweight adventure
sector for the first time.
Designed from the ground up to meet the demands
of some of the most discerning motorcyclists, the
Tiger 800 comes highly specified and delivers a unique
experience for the adventure-minded rider.
This unique experience comes courtesy of the new three-cylinder
799cc powerplant, delivering a
class-leading 95PS and an extremely accessible 79Nm
of torque. With its flat torque curve and smooth
power delivery, the Tiger 800 has been designed to
be easy to ride in all conditions, including off-road.
The Tiger 800 features a tough steel frame capable
of carrying large amounts of luggage and coping
with the rough and tumble of off-piste riding. Ten-spoke
alloy wheels, 19” at the front and 17”
the rear, allow for the fitment of a wide range of
tyres, from dirt-biased dual purpose items to pure
road rubber for those who wish to take advantage of
the Tiger 800’s qualities as an excellent bike
commute and tour on. A class-leading 19 litre fuel
tank ensures infrequent stops for the Tiger 800 rider.
Triumph has given the Tiger 800 a high specification
direct from the factory. Inverted 43mm front
forks are graced with twin 308mm floating brake discs
and two-piston floating calipers. A sophisticated
anti-lock braking system is available as an option
and can be turned off when riding on tricky terrain.
At 210kg including a full tank of fuel, the Tiger
800 is very manageable machine. The rear shock is
adjustable for preload and the Tiger 800 can be tailored
to meet the rider’s personal taste through
the adjustable aluminium handlebars and seat, which
can be set at 810mm or 830mm, with lower and
higher seat options available as official accessories.
A rear rack with generous pillion grab handles also
comes as standard, while a coded-key immobilizer prevents
theft through ‘hot wiring’.
The comprehensive instrumentation includes a fuel
gauge and trip computer, while a high-specification
550w generator is fitted to allow riders to safely
fit electrical accessories such as heated grips, auxiliary
lights and satellite navigation equipment. A huge
range of official Triumph accessories have been
developed for the Tiger 800’s launch, these
include numerous hard and soft luggage solutions,
pressure monitor sensors, adjustable touring screen,
centre stand and off-road style hand guards, bash
plates and high level front mudguard.
