Triumph Tiger 800 XC

Telegraph ---- "The 800XC embodies all the reasons Triumph deserves such success, summarised in the completeness of the bike. The three-cylinder engine is different enough to lend the Tiger Tiger a unique character, yet it works dependably with no rough edges to compensate for, there are no ergonomic oddities, the quality is high and consistent throughout and in an entirely positive way it feels very Japanese, but with a Triumph spin."

Sportrider ---- "Other features intended to increase comfort and confidence during those distant tours include high impact Adventure Hand Guards that offer warmth and protection to hands and controls. High-performance 55w Dual Fog Lights deliver increased visibility for those after-sunset rides, and tough 22mm steel tube engine bars and a heavy-gauge, aluminum belly-pan combine to offer maximum protection for those daring enough to venture beyond the paved path. For those wishing to further customize their XC, a range of 54 additional Genuine Triumph Accessories offers even more options."

Autoevolution ---- "While keeping true to the brand’s triple-cylinder engine design, the new Tiger 800XC boasts a fully-loaded built meant to handle anything you might throw at it. Adjustable sear and handlebars makes the Triumph Tiger 800XC easily transformable for various users. While the adjustment values may seem small, they can make the difference between a comfortable ride and a displeasing one."
