2018 Triumph Tiger 800 comes with a host of design and engine changes
2018 Triumph Tiger 800: Triumph initially took the wraps off its 2018 Tiger 800 adventure bike array at EICMA 2017. The Hinckley-based maker has made over 200 engine and chassis upgrades on the new Tiger 800. Most prominently, the bicycle has had its own three-cylinder engine substituted for the greater answer. Currently, the Tiger range has made its way to India in 3 versions XR (Rs 11.7 lakh), XRx (Rs 13.1 lakh) and also the XCx (Rs 13.7 lakh) (all costs, ex-showroom India)
Power figures are very similar to its predecessor at 95hp and 79Nm of torque; however, the British manufacturer asserts that campaign has gone into creating the engine smoother and much more responsive. Concerning layout, the 2018 Tiger 800 features new aero diffusers, full-LED lights on top-spec versions (XRx and XCx in India), recently backlit switchgear and a flexible screen. The handlebar was moved farther back by 10mm while the chair features 20mm of adjustability.
The XC models proceed the previous completely adjustable WP suspension; however, there’s a brand new addition to such models which come in the shape of Brembo brakes, which substitute the Nissin units in the center and top-spec bicycles. Other changes include better end levels with the bicycle offering an additional electronics kit such as a complete TFT screen for mid and top-spec versions (found on the XRx and XCx in India).
The prior Tiger 800 range began at Rs 10.87 lakh (ex-showroom, India). The new version is significantly more expensive as a result of updates and increased CKD taxation prices.
