Triumph’s most critically-acclaimed motorcycles ever, are now available in India. The all-new Tiger 800 XCX and XR line-up actually draws their heritage from the ’36 Tigers that won gold medals in the International Six-Day Trial and keeping with that adventurous flair, these new bikes up the ante to a whole new level.

The new motorcycle range boasts of having better on-road and off-road mannerisms thanks to over 200 upgrades to the chassis and engine. The Triple engine has been optimised to be more responsive and new shorter ratio first gear helps enable off-road traction and low-speed manoeuvrability while improving acceleration as well. Depending on the variant, the Triumph Tiger also gets up to six different riding modes including a new Off-Road Pro mode that the brand claims is their most focused off-road set up ever—as veteran riders can turn off various systems and be in total control.

The upgrades to the new range have further enhanced their capability and undoubtedly improved their versatility as well. The pricing for the Triumph Tiger range starts at `11.76 lakh for the XR variant, `13.13 lakh for the XRX and `13.76 lakh for the XCx.
