The Triumph Tiger 800 is letting its claws out for the whole world to see. That only means danger to all those looking at taking this ferocious feline head-on.
Designed from the ground up to meet the demands of some of the most discerning motorcyclists, the Tiger 800 comes highly specified and delivers a unique experience for the adventure-minded rider.
The "unique experience" we’re talking about comes courtesy of the bike’s new three-cylinder 799cc powerplant, one that delivers a class-leading 94 brake horsepower and an extremely accessible 58 lb/ft. of torque. With its flat torque curve and smooth power delivery, the Tiger 800 has been designed to be easy to ride in all conditions, including off-road.
Speaking of its design, the Tiger 800 features a tough steel frame that’s more than capable of carrying large amounts of luggage and coping with the rough and tumble world of off-road riding. Ten-spoke alloy wheels - 19" at the front and 17" at the rear - allow for the use a wide range of tires, whether it’s the dirt-based dual purpose items or the pure road rubber for those who wish to take advantage of the Tiger 800’s qualities.
Color options are also a unique new wrinkle to the Tiger 800, allowing customers to choose from Crystal White, Phantom Black, and Venom Yellow, all of which come with the adoption of a graphite colored frame for the 2012 model year.
The Tiger 800 also comes with a comprehensive instrumentation that includes a fuel gauge and trip computer, while a high-specification 645w generator is included to allow riders to safely power electrical accessories. Other accessories that are featured in the Tiger 800 include numerous hard- and soft-luggage solutions, tire pressure monitor sensors, adjustable touring screen, centerstand, off-road style hand guards, bash plates, and high-level front fender.
