Recently Asked User Questions

Q. I 5’6”, can I get a comfortable seating height on Tiger 800? And please tell me XCx or XCa has a low seat?
  • I have the Low seat on the 2014 800xc and it fits me fine at 5'9' I am on my toes though. The 800xr is lower and unless you are going to do more aggressive offroad riding then dirt roads and dirt trails I bet you would be fine on the XR with the appropriate tires. I have used the Shinko 705s on my Kawasaki Versys as did my son and we road some rather rocky technical terrain with that setup. The 800XR is a more capable bike then the Versys in my opinion. I also have the BMW G650GS and that has a very low seat height that my wife at 5'6' is flatfooted on.
  • As you are looking for a low seat height we would suggest you go for the Triumph Tiger 800 XRx, it has a saddle height of 830 mm. The comfort in the variant would be appropriate enough. Moreover, you can have a test ride of the bike for a better idea of comfort and ride quality by visiting the nearest dealer in your city. You can click on the following link to see the details of the nearest dealership and selecting your city accordingly - Dealers.
Q. What is the difference between the Tiger XCa and Tiger XCx?
  • The XC variants are the more off road oriented Tigers. XCa is the top spec one. WP suspension, spoked wheel and tubed tyres, raised fender, aux lights and heated grips and seat make it the most expensive.XCx has the tubeless alloy wheels. Doesn't have the WP suspension. Not sure about differences in rider modes and electronics. There is a lower height XRx that can be ordered I think.
  • The Tiger 800 Xca and Tiger Xcx are two models offered by Triumph. The Xca gets 6 riding modes as compared to the Xcx moreover the Triumph Xca is 3 kgs heavier than the Xcx.
Q. I want to buy a good adventure motorcycle my budget is 20 to 22 lakh but I am confused should I go for 1 bike which would cost me around 20L like the Tiger or Africa Twin or should I go for two mid size adventure bikes like a Versys 650 and a V-Strom 650 which would both come under my budget?
