Triumph Motorcycles to launch Tiger 800 series in India on Wed

Triumph Motorcyles, the England-based bike maker will launch its latest Tiger 800 series adventure bikes in India on Wednesday, Mar 12.

Triumph Motorcycles has bikes in five category – roadster, adventure, supersports, classics and cruisers.


“Whatever the road, whatever the distance, whatever the challenge, the new Tiger 800 range has been built to excel,” the company said.

Featuring a host of rider focused technology such as the standard fitment of Triumph Traction Control and switchable ABS, the new Tiger with its powerful and more fuel efficient 95PS triple engine is up for any task, it claimed.

The 800 series has generally received good reviews. Unlike most companies’ adventure bikes, Triumph’s 800 series tend to offer greater comfort, which is a key selling point as they can also be used for longer rides and not just dirt-biking.

“Delivering a seamless flow of torque across the rev range, the Tiger 800 is as perfectly suited to long distance rides as it is to tackling the tough stuff. The second generation 800cc engine now features a ride-by-wire throttle system which provides smoother power delivery, better response, and lower emissions. The result is a 17% improvement in fuel efficiency that coupled with the capacious 19l fuel tank means you can ride longer.”

On top of that, the Triumph Tiger 800 series is available in two different flavors – the touring focused XR range, and the off-road biased XC range. “We have also introduced new equipment levels with both the XRx and XCx variants. These bring even higher levels of standard equipment such as Cruise Control and the addition of Riding Modes to tackle any terrain.”
