2011 Triumph Tiger 800 and 800XC

Triuph has unveiled the first details on the 2011 Tiger 800, offered in both road and off-rod versions, last one called XC. The last one will be distinguished by specia tires, 21-inch front wheel and extended front mudguard. The standard version will be offered with 19-inch front wheel and non-tubed tires.

For 2011 Triumph will be powered by a stroked out version of the Triumph Daytona 675. The 800 cc engine will deliver a few lees horse power than in the Dayton model (where it delivers 124bhp and 53lb/ft). SO, with a total weight of 440lbs and a power of aprox. 110 HP, the Triumph 800 will be lighter and a little more powerful than the BMW F800GS.

The 2011 800 will also be offered with a steel tube frame, a beefier bash guard and an Arrow exhaust.

No words yet on how much the motorcycle will cost or when it will go on sale.

Updated 11/05/2010: The new Trimph Tiger 800 and 800XC made their world debut in Italy at the EICMA Show. The Tiger 800 offers outstanding accessibility and maneuverability with cast alloy wheels and, thanks to the adjustable seat that’s on both models, a seat height as low as 31.9 inches to make it an adventure bike for the masses. The taller Tiger 800XC, meanwhile, delivers true off-road capability thanks to its longer-travel suspension and 21” spoke front wheel. With its higher riding position, the Tiger 800XC provides a commanding view of the road ahead and absorbs even the worst road conditions.

Press release

Triumph today held the global unveiling of its eagerly awaited Tiger 800 and Tiger 800XC adventure touring models at the internationally renowned EICMA show in Milan, Italy.

The unveilings follow the global introductions of the new Thunderbird Storm, America and Speedmaster at last month’s Intermot show in Cologne, Germany. Triumph’s 2011 model range represents the largest new product offering in the company’s 109-year history.

“Entering the adventure touring segment is big news for everyone at Triumph, and we know from customer comments that they’re just as excited,” said Satu Mehta, Vice President of Sales for Triumph North America. “Triumph’s new adventure motorcycles give us a strong offering in every motorcycle category and a great platform to build on in the coming years.”

The all-new Tiger 800s represent Triumph’s first entry into the mid-capacity adventure touring sector. Powered by a 94hp long-stroke 799cc three-cylinder engine, the two models share the same tough steel frame but have their own distinct personalities.

Designed for the city and open road, the Tiger 800 offers outstanding accessibility and maneuverability with cast alloy wheels and, thanks to the adjustable seat that’s on both models, a seat height as low as 31.9 inches to make it an adventure bike for the masses. The taller Tiger 800XC, meanwhile, delivers true off-road capability thanks to its longer-travel suspension and 21” spoke front wheel. With its higher riding position, the Tiger 800XC provides a commanding view of the road ahead and absorbs even the worst road conditions.

Both models come with a wide range of official accessories that are specially designed to help owners get the most out of their machines. High quality soft and hard luggage options as well as optional gel seats with varying heights make these new Triumphs exceptionally capable and inviting touring machines. A range of off-road protection parts also has been developed for riders who plan to go off the beaten path, while the class-leading 645w alternator ensures that the Tiger Tiger 800s will have no problem running the auxiliary lights and heated handlebar grips that are available as official accessories.

Just finished a cross countyr ride from Iowa to montana on Tiger in the rain-since there has been almost no demos and you had to put a deposit down before delivery I ws surprised that it is bigger than a Tiger 1050-top heavy-windshield is designed for a motorscooter-front fender not designed for anything but pavement-tire throws road debris at the unprotected radiator.It is not a do all bike as promoed but the motor runs great but vibes will put your hands asleep after 100 miles.Your stuck in one position with the seat that puts you against the tank.It needs fender extender on front-higher front fender-rear fender to keep road debris out of rear shock-windshield -radiator guard-ability to change bars-ect.Maybe 2012’s will be redesigned by someone who really rides some distance not someone who wants you to buy aftermarket products to make bike work as advertised.

So, an "off-road" bike that weighs more than a sport bike. That is stupid. Drop 100lbs and you will seem reasonable.
