So finally the adventure riders in the country will be relieved when the Triumph Tiger 800 XC breaks cover in India next year. One out of the seven models to be launched by Triumph, the Tiger 800 XC will be an important model which will explore the untapped adventure motorcycle segment in the country, which is scheduled for a big change in coming years. The Tiger 800 XC has been revered as one of the most potent and well-established trailies internationally and its Indian foray is highly awaited.
Powered by a 7,99cc three cylinder engine, the machine weighs about 215kg (wet) and offers one of the best ride quality in its class. Expect the otorcycle to go on sale in India by late 2013 at a said price of Rs. 11.4 lakh (ex-showroom). Imported as a CBU, the Tiger 800 XC will still be a bit heavy on the pocket but it will be money well spent for hardcore adventure riders.
