Triumph Tiger 800

Triumph will launch the 2018 Tiger 800 tomorrow. The new model comes with over 200 changes, most of which are in the engine department. The 800cc, in-line 3-cylinder motor makes 95PS at 9500rpm and 79Nm of torque at 8050rpm. While the figures are exactly the same as before, the new engine promises to be a lot more refined and responsive. Apart from this, Triumph has also tweaked the ratio of the first gear for better acceleration.

The other update is a smaller, lighter and free-flowing exhaust that delivers a rich exhaust note. The revised riding position, handlebars placed closer to the rider and a saddle with extra foam should help improve long-distance comfort.

While the overall silhouette remains the same, the subtle design changes make the bike look larger and meaner. Design updates include a new paint scheme and new LED headlamps with DRLs. Features include a new aerodynamic adjustable windscreen, a colour TFT instrument cluster and switchgear borrowed from the Street Triple RS. Electronic rider aids include a new riding mode called ‘Road Pro’ that completely switches off traction control and ABS.

Triumph offers the new Tiger 800 in a total of six variants, three each for on-road and off-road use, in global markets. While Triumph has not revealed any details, we expect the British bike manufacturer to launch the XCx and XCa variant tomorrow followed by other variants later in the year.

The new Tiger 800 is expected to cost more than the outgoing model. If we had to make a guess, we’d say it could be priced anywhere between Rs 11 lakh and Rs 15 lakh. That should put it in the same territory as the recently launched BMW F750 GS and F850 GS, which cost Rs 12.2 lakh and 13.7 lakh (all prices, ex-showroom Delhi), respectively.
