Triumph has launched the Tiger 800 XCa at Rs 15.16 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Last year, Triumph did launch the updated Tiger 800 variants in India, but the British manufacturer gave the top-of-the-line XCa variant a miss then. With the launch of the XCa variant today, Triumph’s Tiger 800 range now includes the XR, XRx, XCx and the XCa.
Being the top-end variant, the XCa is equipped with extra goodies as compared to the other models. It gets an aluminium radiator guard, 6 riding modes (Rain, Road, Off-Road, Off-Road Pro, Custom and Sport), engine protection bars, heated grips and seat, and LED auxiliary lighting system, among other features. As seen on the XCx, the XCa also comes with a 5-inch TFT display that displays various information such as tripmeter, gear position indicator, fuel gauge, service indicator, temperature and riding modes.
Powering the Tiger 800 XCa is an 800cc, liquid-cooled, inline three-cylinder motor which puts out 95PS of power at 9,500rpm and 79Nm of max torque at 8,050rpm. Transmission duties are handled by a 6-speed gearbox. Being more off-road biased than the XR models, the XCa gets fully adjustable suspensions at both ends: 43mm USD forks with 220mm of travel at the front and a WP monoshock with 215mm of travel at the rear. Stopping power comes from twin 305mm discs up front and a single 255mm disc at the rear.
Being a proper off-road-focused variant, the Triumph Tiger 800 XCa will lock horns with the Honda Africa Twin and the BMW F850GS. At this price point, the Tiger 800 XCa costs Rs 1.93 lakh more than Honda Africa Twin and Rs 2.21 lakh more than the BMW F850GS.
