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).

Triumph makes sure their most versatile model, the Tiger remains a strong player on the market and the presence of a Special Edition model in their lineup is just what the doctor recommends for riders in search of an adventure-sport model. The bike is based on the Tiger ABS, but distinguishes thanks to a Matt Graphite and Matt Black color scheme as well as thanks to a pair of color-matched sidebags, just like the 2010 Sprint ST gets.
A first glance at the standard 2010 Triumph Tiger is enough to make you think the bike is totally new, but what actually sets it apart from the previous model year are the attractive new color schemes and the touring upgrades that the Brits simply had to have for their wild model.
While the color schemes as well as the accessories are for you to decide, what they don’t offer the possibility to decide for is the 1050cc three-cylinder engine producing 111 bhp at 9,400 rpm and 72 ft.lbs at 6250 rpm, as that would actually be the main reason why people buy the bike. Also, the Triumph Tiger features sports suspensions and rubber as well as Nissin brakes, making it an adequate sport-touring bike rather than the dual-purpose one that first made an entry back in the early 1990s.

How could possibly a crashed motorcycle reveal to have benefited of excellent stopping power if it ended up pretty much redesigned by another traffic participant? Well, the whole point is that the rider of this Triumph Tiger
did react in time to prevent a crash and the bike did performed just as supposed in such cases, but the car driver coming from behind either reacted too late or, just as happens in most cases, the vehicle’s brakes had simply too much weight to stop in the respective critic distance and boom…the rider gets tossed around by the force of the impact and messes up the mirrors on his way over the bike, but let’s hope he’s safe and sound.
