Equipped with an stroked of the firm’s middleweight triple, the Tiger 800 XC promised to bring a dose of sporting character to the ADV segment. Can it?

What’s New :

The Triumph 800 and Triumph Tiger 800 XC represent a … on the mid-capacity adventure segment. One’s a little road-oriented, one’s a little and a little more ready for round-the-world stuff.

The XC’s sit .7 inches forward of the 800’s and a of an inch higher. More at 34 inches, the XC’s are .6 inches and sweep back six degrees Hopping between the two bikes, you do that extra width, but it become particularly relevant you’re lane splitting, the XC is just a tad unwieldy through tight traffic.

The XC’s standard bash make up for that though, you can fly mirrors confident in the knowledge they’ll break before your brake. You can also get a extra bit of height out of the XC’s by rotating them forwards.

bikes feature an easily rider seat. Two bars and rear sit in either high or low and are secured by rubber straps. It about 30 seconds to switch high and low. The 800 can go from a accessible 31.9 inches to a comfortable 32.7.

The XC starts at and goes up to 34 inches.

The 800 has 23.7 of rake and 86.2mm of trail to the 23.1 degrees and 91.1mm. So the 800 is and shorter. You can feel that its steering is perceptibly faster and precise than the XC’s.

Both tigers use a 17-inch wheel, but the 800’s is a lighter item to the XC’s stronger setup. At the front, the 800 attempts to some image of dirt with a 19-inch alloy the XC goes the whole hog with a Excel rim.

It’s difference, together with the and trail, that delivers the obvious difference between the two Not only does the XC steer a slower but, at very angles of lean, its front will walk wide and skittish over bumps leaning too.

The 800 uses a 43mm fork with of travel. The XC a larger diameter, 45mm fork with of travel. This is traditionally we’d … about lack of adjustment, but Triumph has the settings on both bikes, we adjust them even if we

What’s Good :

One of the nicest about it is how easily adjustable ergonomics are. Two little live under the rider’s held on by bungees. Spend 5 swapping them to the lower and the seat gets about an or so higher. Loosen two hex bolts on the bar and the bars rotate nice and One hex key on each side is all that’s to reposition the levers, bark and mirrors.

It took literally 60 to do all that.

Ok, so when they it out to 800cc, the triple lost of its top end and urgency. From the Daytona power is down from 124 to but torque is up from 53lb/ft at a sky 11,700rpm to 58lb/ft at 7,850rpm. is up from 407lbs (wet) on sportsbike to 473lbs on the adventure

The Tiger is sharp, urgent and inspiring. That’s with a 21” wheel. The chicken strips totally gone after the on ramp and I’ve been this thing through in a manner totally belying the that it is a nearly 500lbs tourer with unadjustable

The Bridgestone Battlewings help too. They’re much on the road than the Pirelli Trails that come on the GS. don’t seem to need any up time at all and deliver tons feel than a bike a 21” front has any right too.

I’m more confident on the this on the D204-shod R1 that’s been in the garage since I picked up the

The engine is all sharp and angular to the tube frame’s soft The body work is a total which isn’t a bad thing. not over styled, it’s

I think that’s something it through proportion rather styling.

What’s Bad :

I’m a little about the passenger peg hangers if I it, they’re welded to the rear which could write it off if I to summersault the Triumph. The rest of the are very well protected. the stock sump guard is beefy and the radiator is pretty protected by the stock plastics.

not living up to its claimed 41mpg highway fuel mileage I’m getting an indicated 34mpg around LA on a mix of surface streets and The tank holds a reasonable 5.0 but the reserve light came on at 140 miles.

I ride quickly, but not over
