Triumph’s new Tiger 800XC is the British company’s first truly ‘go everywhere’ motorcycle, a machine designed and built for adventurers looking for a strong and reliable companion to take them on a round the world trip.

The Tiger 800XC is as tough as they come and capable of coping with the demands of off-piste riding thanks to its tough steel chassis and torque 799cc three-cylinder engine.

Long travel 45mm upside down front forks and rear suspension unit combine with a 21” spoked front wheel to deliver maximum ground clearance and the ability to cope with rough trails. With a high-level front mudguard and sturdy handguards, there can be no doubt that the latest Tiger has been developed to cope with demanding conditions.

The same qualities that make the Tiger 800XC so competent off-road also lead to an excellent road bike. The rider can adjust both the handlebar position and seat height and whether it is set at 845 or 865mm the Tiger 800XC offers a commanding view above the traffic and a comfortable perch from which to devour the miles. A classleading 19 litre fuel tank ensures infrequent stops for the Tiger 800XC rider, with cavernous hard and soft luggage options available for those who need to take the ‘kitchen sink’ on their two-wheeled tours.

Powering the Tiger 800XC is a new long-stroke triple delivering 95PS and an extremely accessible 79Nm of torque. With its flat torque curve and gentle power delivery, the Tiger 800XC is a pleasure to ride in even the most demanding of conditions.

A sophisticated anti-lock braking system is available as an option and can be deactivated for off-road riding, while the high-specification extends to a standard coded-key immobilizer and rear rack with generous pillion grab handles. Three colour options are available for the Tiger 800XC: Intense Orange, Phantom Black and Crystal White. For 2012, the Tiger 800XC has adopted a graphite colour frame for greater aesthetic appeal.

The comprehensive instrumentation includes a fuel gauge and trip computer, while a high-specification 645w 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 800XC’s launch, these include numerous hard and soft luggage solutions, adjustable touring screen, centre stand and off-road style engine protection bars and sump guard.
