2018 Triumph Tiger 1200 XR

One Of The Most Adventure-Ready Tigers Ever Built

Triumph Motorcycles revamped its large-displacement Tiger family ahead of MY2018 with a host of improvements that include a significant weight loss — both inside the cases and outside — for quicker spool-up and livelier throttle responses.

New cast wheels carry it all with a sporty new spoke arrangement and blackout treatment. Trumpet packs in even more yummygoodness, so let’s dig in, shall we?

2018 Triumph Tiger 1200 XC

Adds a myriad of equipment and sheds the ’Explorer’ badge along with some meat

After their Bonneville range, it’s the Tiger models that give the British brand their numbers. As regularly updating their line-ups go, Triumph is giving their 2018 Tiger range a host of bells and whistles that will boast of having it ’Transformed,’ with a ’New Tiger Triple Engine’ and ’New Tiger Technology.’ Apart from this, the bodywork also gets mild updates to look fresh for 2018.

Triumph loves them so much that it feels no inhibitions with having six different models each for 1215 cc and 800 cc engine mods for 2018. Both the 1200 and 800 have four road variants (XR, XRx, XRx low, and range-topping XRT), and two off-road ones (XCx and a top-spec XCA). Guess we’ll take the best of them and spread it out for you nice and easy.

That is the Triumph Tiger 1200 XC range. Drumrolls please. The first thing you notice is that name. Previously all the Tigers running on the 1215cc motor had the ‘Explorer’ badging on them. But for 2018, Triumph has made things easier by just sticking to the 1200 branding.

My Top Five Bike Picks For Women Who Don't Want A Cruiser

My Top Five Bike Picks For Women Who Don’t Want A Cruiser

Yeah, We’re Short, But We Like To Go Fast, Too

Is being a woman and wanting to ride a motorcycle a big deal nowadays? It isn’t as much a ’big deal’ now as it was a few decades ago. Our culture is more open to folks of the female gender doing anything and everything we want to do, but there is still a certain barrier when it comes to riding a motorcycle. Why? Because traditionally, bikes were designed with men in mind, at least 5’ 8” tall and with enough upper body strength to wrestle the weight and pick one up if it ended up on its side. Women were generally relegated to cruisers because we are typically shorter than men and cruisers have the low seat heights. That is changing as more manufacturers recognize that there is a whole customer base out here with money to spend. So what shall we spend our money on if we don’t want a plain ol’ cruiser?

Triumph’s 1200 cc On-Road-Centric Adventure Bike

It’s really tough to make an adventure bike that will truly do it all and the folks down at Triumph Motorcycles don’t even waste any time trying. While Triumph has the dirt-tastic XC sibling to cover the off-road work, the streetwise Tiger Explorer XR comes set up for more urban/civilized adventures with adjustable WP suspension components and Brembo brakes with ABS protection. A 1,215 cc three-banger mill drives it all with 139 horsepower on tap, enough to push it well into power-tourer territory. There are a number of variants built on the base XR, all of which come with more top-shelf bits, but don’t be fooled into thinking the base model is all that lacking in any department ’cause it seems to have everything one needs to go traipsing hither and yon.

Getting off the beaten path is what it’s all about on the 2016 Tiger XC from Triumph. The more off-road-oriented brother of the Tiger XR, the XC comes with laced wheels instead of cast and has standard features you want when you abandon the pavement and hit the dirt, such as a sump guard to protect the engine, off-road-tuned suspension and a radiator guard.

Reintroduced for the 2016 model year, the Tiger 800 XC is very nearly a carryover from the 2014 model, but with a few changes and improvements. WP replaces the Showa suspension from 2014 and new for 2016, the XC has redesigned cowls to deflect hot air from the radiator away from the rider.

By adding spoked wheels — which are stronger and more rugged than the cast wheels — Triumph turned the Tiger Explorer into the Tiger Explorer Spoked Wheels (hence the devilishly clever name).

If Little Red Riding Hood had a Tiger Explorer XC, she would have had an easier time getting to grandma’s house. She could have ridden through the woods instead of parking out at the road and walking in. I wonder how that would have changed her experience. One thing is for certain, when the road gets bumpy, the 2015 Triumph Tiger Explorer XC is at its best. With a combination of on-road rider comforts and offroad capabilities, the Tiger Explorer XC is quite a nice adventure bike. Features like the sump guard, engine protection bars and hand guards let you know you can go off road with confidence. The 55W dual fog lights make sure you can see-and-be-seen even in poor visibility conditions.

Triumph Adds XRt and XCa Models To Tiger 800 Range

Triumph Adds XRt and XCa Models To Tiger 800 Range

Triumph has pulled the covers off of a pair of new models to add to its existing Tiger 800 range. The models, called the 800 XRt and the 800 XCa, are being touted as range-toppers of the entire 800 line, bring with them an array of new touring amenities and optional accessories to emphasis their long-distance capabilities.

One of the biggest additions to the XRt and XCa models is the larger capacity 650W alternator that will now come as a standard equipment on both bikes. The inclusion of the more powerful alternator allows the two bikes to have enough power to make good use of its new heated rider and pillions seats, LED foglights, satellite navigation, and yes, even heated clothing. The two off-road bikes also received a GPS mounting kit, a CNC-machined brake reservoir, and an aluminum radiator guard.

If Triumph wanted to cover all touring aspects of its Tiger 800 line, the XRt and the XCa addresses a lot of the things missing from the rest of the lineup. That said, the optional luggage system, which can be easily fitted on the aluminum pannier rails, would’ve been much better if it wasn’t optional on both bikes to begin with.

But for what Triumph included in the two bikes, the optional luggage system really isn’t that big of a deal.

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.

2012 Triumph Tiger 1050

2012 Triumph Tiger 1050

For a bike that packs a walloping powertrain, the Triumph Tiger 1050 looks remarkably svelte and sexy. Then again, we wouldn’t have expected anything less from the boys over at Triumph.

The British motorcycle brand’s popular Tiger 1050 has been given a sporty new look for 2012 with an improved specification, new colors, and graphics, giving it a powerful and versatile look as a rocket on two wheels. For the 2012 model, the Tiger 1050 comes with plenty of new features, including high-specification black anodized tapered aluminum handlebars that are over half an inch lower than the previous steel items for a more sporting riding position. The bike also has a tall - 32.8" - riding position that gives the rider a commanding view over the traffic, with the well-appointed saddle facilitating comfortable day-long riding.

Speaking of the bike’s remarkably meaty engine, the Tiger 1050 is powered by a 1,050cc triple engine that delivers a staggering 113 brake horsepower and 72 lb/ft of torque at just 6,250 rpm. These numbers are made all the more impressive considering that the Tiger doesn’t pass the look of a mighty cruiser.

Dressed in Triumph’s famous Metallic Phantom Black paint finish, the Tiger 1050 comes with new graphics on the fairing with a number of items “dechromed” for a more contemporary look. Wheels, sprocket carrier, and brake calipers are among the many components that have also been dressed in a black finish and further complemented by graphite footrest hangers and control plates. Exhaust canisters and heel guards now take on a brushed, rather than polished, steel finish.

True to its calling as a tough, durable, and versatile bike, the Tiger 800XC is capable of coping with the demands of off-road riding, thanks to a combination of utilitarian design, powerful engine, and superb handling characteristics. Just as with many of Triumph’s other class-leading machines, the rider can adjust both the handlebar position and seat height of the Tiger 800XC, offering a commanding view above the traffic and a comfortable perch from which to devour the miles. The bike also has a class-leading 5.0 gallon fuel tank that ensures long-distance rides go uninterrupted. Cavernous hard and soft luggage options are available, as is a comprehensive instrumentation that includes a fuel gauge and trip computer.

As far as the engine goes, powering the Tiger 800XC is a new long-stroke triple engine that produces an impressive 94 brake horsepower and an extremely accessible 58 lb/ft of torque. With its flat torque curve and gentle power delivery, the Tiger 800XC is a pleasure to ride in even in the most demanding of conditions.

Then there’s the aforementioned handling credentials. Long-travel 45mm upside-down front forks and a rear suspension unit all combine with a 21" spoked front wheel to deliver maximum ground clearance and the ability to cope with rough trails. Likewise, a sophisticated anti-lock braking system is available as an option and can be deactivated for off-road riding, while the high specification extends to a standard coded-key immobilizer and rear rack with generous pillion grab handles.

2012 Triumph Tiger 1050 SE

2012 Triumph Tiger 1050 SE

As if it wasn’t mouth-watering enough, Triumph’s popular Tiger 1050 has been given a sporty new look for 2012, packed with an improved specification, new colors and graphics, and the same powerhouse drivetrain that we’ve all come to appreciate.

A truly versatile motorcycle, the Triumph Tiger 1050 SE is a rare creature that’s versatile and adept on just about any road surface. There’s no question that its well-rounded nature has made it one of Triumph’s best-selling models in recent years and given it a huge following around the world.

Sit astride the Tiger 1050 and you will understand just why so many year-round riders choose them as their daily rides. The tall - 32.8" - riding position gives the rider a commanding view over the traffic, with the well-appointed saddle facilitating comfortable day-long riding. New for the 2012 model are high-specification black anodized tapered aluminum handlebars. These are over half an inch lower than the previous steel items to give a more sporting riding position. The standard Tiger 1050 SE comes in three different color options: Diablo Red, Crystal White, and a two-tone Matte Black/Matte Graphite combination. The higher specification Tiger 1050SE also benefits from Triumph’s ABS braking system, as well as the standard fitment of hand guards, centerstand and 43-liter saddlebags, optional extras on the standard Tiger 1050.

Then there’s the powertrain, a staggering 1,050cc triple engineering feat that has been a staple of Triumph over the years, capable of effortlessly delivering 113 brake horsepower and 72 lb/ft of torque at just 6,250 rpm.

For 2012, the Tiger 1050 features redesigned suspension internals and new damping characteristics front and rear, with a stiffer spring at the rear. The result is a more controlled ride, both solo and with a passenger, with reduced dive under braking, making for an all-around, versatile bike that’s ready to conquer the road.

2011 Triumph Tiger 800 and 800XC

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.

2010 Triumph Tiger/Special Edition

2010 Triumph Tiger/Special Edition

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.

Crashed Triumph Tiger reveals excellent braking system

Crashed Triumph Tiger reveals excellent braking system

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.
