The road-loving Tiger 800 XR is as perfect for touring the world’s highways, as it is on the city streets, with superb off the beaten track handling too.
The XR is a ride with a smooth delivery and confidence-inducing capability. The more responsive Triumph 800 Triple engine and the lighter, improved exhaust system are just two of the many features, innovations and modifications that have been designed into the latest generation of the XR model.
The 19-inch aluminium cast front wheel and Metzeler Tourance tires work in harmony with the adjustable suspension of the XR giving a smooth and comfortable road ride. You’ll benefit from improved riding position and the new shorter ratio first gear, giving you more low-speed traction and instant responsiveness right when you need it most. All this is in addition to category-defining core technologies including ride-by-wire throttle, switchable ABS and traction control and a more distinctive Tiger 800 style.
