The changes have reduced the seat height of 50 mm, thus reaching a ground clearance that varies from 760 to 780 mm for XRx and 790 to 810 mm for X.
The low profile is obtained through the redesign of the saddle and the reduction of the suspension travel, both front and rear. The road-going version, the XRx Low, has a modified radiator caps and a new aluminum engine shield.
The new Tiger 800 range, presented at EICMA of 2014 consists of two families, each with its own soul. The XR family, designed for paved roads, consists of XR, XRx versions and XRx Low, each with specific features and amenities to meet the needs of every biker lover of curves and long journeys. The family is instead made up of XC versions XC XCx, XCa and XCx Low, and is geared to off-road use, ideal for those who love adventure on dirt roads and rough terrain.
Although each version is different, they all share the passion and quality standards that Triumph dedicates to its products. The Tiger 800 offers range of series, for the first time in its class, ABS, Triumph and Cruise Control Traction Control. And thanks to the ride-by-wire system the pilot can receive a response from the accelerator immediately and change the setting of the bike only with a key, using the new Riding Mode functionality.
The Tiger XRx Low and Low X will be available in October at the official network dealers Triumph, respectively at the price of 11,600 and 12,600 Euros.
