Key Specs of Tiger 800
Triumph Tiger 800 Highlights
The 2018 Triumph Tiger 800 gets more than 200 tweaks, most of which are have been in the engine department. Surprisingly, the adventure tourer makes the same power and torque figures as earlier - 95PS of max power at 9,250rpm and 79Nm of peak torque at 7,850rpm. The 800cc liquid-cooled, DOHC, 3-cylinder engine is, however, tweaked to deliver better throttle response and to be more responsive at the bottom end. In addition, the bike gets a new clutch, a new exhaust end can and a new crankshaft. The bike returns a claimed fuel efficiency of 21Kmpl. Cosmetically, it gets updates such as a new adjustable windscreen, new aero diffusers and a full-LED headlamp unit on the top-spec models. Other bits include new 5-way backlit switchgear, exclusively available on the XRx and the XCx, and a TFT instrument console on the mid and top-spec models. For better rider comfort, the handlebar has been moved closer to the rider by 10mm, which also makes up for an upright riding position. The new Tiger range gets a tubular steel trellis frame. The XR range gets Showa 43mm upside down front forks and Showa rear monoshock while the XC variant is equipped with 43mm WP upside down front forks and WP rear monoshock. Brembo brakes on high-spec models make braking more efficient on the new Tiger 800. The Tiger range is available in three variants - XR (Rs 11.76 lakh), XRx (Rs 13.13 lakh) and the off-roader 2018 Tiger XCx (Rs 13.76 lakh) (all prices, ex-showroom Delhi). The Tiger 800 rivals Ducati Multistrada 950, Honda Africa Twin and the BMW F750GS and F850GS in India.

Tiger 800 Expert Review
The 2018 Triumph Tiger 800 is offered in two different avatars, the road-going XR range and the off-road oriented XC range. For 2018, the bike’s engine has been reworked to make it more refined than earlier and be more responsive at lower rpms. Notable standard features of the Tiger 800 include switchable ABS, traction control, ride-by-wire, adjustable seat height and the immobilizer. The higher-spec models come with features like cruise control, adjustable screen, self-cancelling indicators, 3 riding modes, engine protection bars, hand guards and aluminium sump guard. The 19-litre fuel tank is more than enough for your long-distance adventures. The XR range is equipped with Showa 43mm upside down front forks and Showa rear monoshock absorbers and the 19-inch front cast wheel while the off-road oriented XC range comes with 43mm WP upside down front forks and WP monoshock at the rear and 21-inch spoked front wheel. The Tiger XR is available in two colours, Jet Black and Crystal White, the Tiger XRx in black, blue and white, and the Tiger XCx in black, white, blue and silver.
Design and Features
The 2018 Triumph Tiger 800 has been designed to suit varied tarmac. The motorcycle gets typical adventure-tourer looks, with aggressive character lines, sharp engine shrouds, edgy headlamp cluster, naked engine design, pointed front fender style and a bigger front wheel. The 2018 edition of the Tiger 800 has been tweaked cosmetically too. It gets an adjustable windscreen, new aero diffusers for improved aerodynamics, full-LED headlamps and revised seat cushioning for better comfort. The riding position is quite upright, thanks to its revised handlebar which gets placed closer to the rider. There is a new 5-way joystick backlit switchgear to toggle through the menu which is, however, available only on the higher-spec models. The colour TFT instrument console is also a part of the top-spec models – for displaying information about the ride and the vehicle. In addition, it boasts features like traction control, cruise control, switchable ABS, adjustable seat height option, self-cancelling indicators and the 12V power socket. There are multiple colour shades to choose from - Jet Black and Crystal White on the Tiger XR, black, blue and white on the Tiger XRx and black, white, blue and silver on the Tiger XCx.
Engine and Performance
The 2018 Triumph Tiger 800 draws power from an 800cc, liquid-cooled, DOHC, inline 3-cylinder engine with electronic fuel injection that pumps out 95PS of max power at 9250rpm and 78Nm of peak torque at 7950rpm. The engine is coupled to a 6-speed transmission system. The bike features ride-by-wire throttle system. The engine itself has been tuned to make it more refined and smoother than before. The lighter alternator helps the motor to spin faster and the tacho indicator to rise rapidly. The exhaust is lighter and smaller than before which produces a throatier note that has muted the whine, earlier produced by three in-line cylinders.
Braking and Handling
The tubular steel trellis frame of the 2018 Tiger 800 XR is suspended on Showa 43mm upside down front forks and Showa rear monoshock absorbers while the off-road oriented XC range comes with 43mm WP upside down front forks and WP monoshock at the rear. The bike seems to be unfocused especially at the front and the overall steering response also looks weak as compared to the rivals. The ride quality is similar to the previous model, however, the new Tiger 800 feels a lot confident while negotiating bends. On the braking front, the new Tiger 800 gets Brembo front brakes (except the base XR) - 308mm dual floating discs at the front - and a 255mm disc at the rear. There is plenty of braking force on offer enabling the rider to control the bike at will. The cast aluminium 19- and 17-inch spoked wheels are shod with 100/90 and 150/70 R17 section tyres at the front and rear respectively on the XR range. The XC version of the Tiger 800, on the other hand, is equipped with a 21-inch wheel at the front that is wrapped in 90/90 section tyre. Off-road performance is satisfactory too – tyres offer incredible grip, three riding modes on top-spec models come in quite handy and linear torque delivery of the motor manages rear wheel spin pretty nicely.
Safety and Features
There are features like switchable ABS, Brembo brakes, traction control and cruise control that collectively contribute to the safety of the bike.
