It’s the same engine as the Tiger 900, but is it a lesser bike?

Triumph beefs up its globetrotting Tiger family with an addition to the mid-range displacement bracket in the new Tiger 850 Sport. The “Sport” borrows from its big brother — the Tiger 900 — and brings its own blend of on- and off-road capabilities to the table to set it apart from its siblings. Though capable all-around, the Sport comes built with a street-centric bias that will be more useful on urban/civilized roads, thus making it a viable tourbike/commuter/grocery-getter.

Triumph took its Tiger XCx to the Nth degree

There’s nothing quite like a special-edition to spruce up a model family, and Triumph takes that to the bank with its new top-shelf Tiger 1200 Desert Edition. The “Desert” builds on the mid-grade, off-road-centric Tiger 1200 XCx with titanium and carbon-fiber touches and a model-specific “Sandstorm” paint package with Desert Edition graphics to set it apart visually from the pack. Of course, the factory maintains its premium electronics suite and active suspension system, and it drives it all with its proven 1,215 cc triple.

Triumph takes its Tiger 1200 to a whole new level

Triumph Motorcycles has long been on the cutting edge of adventure-bike design with its venerable Tiger line, and the British giant expands it top-displacement, mid-range technology bracket with the addition of the Tiger 1200 Alpine for MY2020. Special paint and graphics set the Alpine apart visually from the rest of the family, and under the “hood”, Triumph’s premium electronics suite works to keep it dirty-side down. The in-line triple delivers well over 100 ponies with almost 100 pounds o’ grunt to drive the Alpine over the hills and dales it was designed to conquer.

Triumph gave their swashbuckler Tiger 1200 machine two special editions for 2020

When the Brits’ launched the Tiger 900 recently with more power, aggressive modern styling, brilliant standard specs, and new state-of-the-art riding enhancements, it was the big brother 1200’s stars to shine next.

But Triumph decided to have a swansong attempt instead and has added some fancy trinkets to make their mid-range 1200 XCx and XRx posher and special. It’ll include new paint jobs inspired by the world’s more arid climates and locations, and some fancy equipment that takes the functionality quotient of the already capable machines to new levels.

2020 Triumph Tiger 900 Rally / Rally Pro

More power and more torque in the low range, it’s a whole new generation of Tiger

Triumph’s new Tiger 900 line covers an array of bases throughout its range, but while the base model and GT versions are built for urban touring/commuting, the Rally and Rally Pro are clearly geared toward off-road work. Long-stroke suspension components and laced wheels set the tone with the full spectrum of ride-quality and safety systems, several of which benefit from the IMU to deliver corner-optimized performance both on-road and off. All of this delightfulness rides on an all-new chassis with an also-new, 888 cc powerplant that cranks out 10-percent more grunt than the previous “800” to drive your multi-surface adventures.

New from the ground up, it’s a whole new generation of Tiger

Triumph up-sized its outgoing Tiger 800 adventure model ahead of MY2020 to create the all-new Tiger 900. This machine serves as a platform for a number of upscale stablemates, but today I want to focus on the base model. The factory balances capabilities and cost to deliver a bike that can both tour and serve as a daily commuter. The safety electronics covers the basics and come bundled with a handful of ride-quality controls for push-button personality changes to round out the package and give the 900 a bit of versatility.

It’s everything we loved about the Tiger 800, but on a whole new level

Triumph’s new-for-2020 900 GT and 900 GT Pro brings an urban bias to its multi-surface, adventure-bike Tiger line making it a good prospect for long-range/touring riders as well as those looking for a solid commuter. Power comes from an all-new, 900 cc plant, but the real star of the show is the electronics suite that delivers safety along with push-button personality changes to give this pair extra flexibility. The question is whether it’s enough to be genuinely worthy of the Gran Turismo moniker.

Triumph polished its off-road chops ahead of MY2018 with a new Tiger 1200 XCx that rocks more of what you want and less of what you don’t in an adventure bike. The “XCx” is looking trim at the scale after a Summer at fat-camp, and that trickles down to turn in improved handling and performance from the improved chassis and significantly upgraded powerplant. Adjustable ride-quality controls ride alongside layered electronic safety features to make this XCx quite flexible and capable of fitting a variety of roles and riders. The Tiger moniker has always set a high bar, so today let’s see how Trumpet measures up against its own yardstick and check out the likely competition.

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?

These two reside on the second tier of the XR range with numerous features that the base model misses out on such as Riding Modes, DRLs and full-color TFT display to name a few. A next-gen engine churns out 94 horsepower and 58 pound-feet of torque for greater performance than its predecessor, with the electronic assistance you need to keep it all under control. Built as a street-centric adventure bike, the XRx siblings can double as outstanding commuters. Join me while I check out the details on this dynamic duo.

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.

Based on the entry-level XR range, the XC siblings build up to the XCx that adds cornering traction control and ABS to the 139 ponies that reside in the engine cases, and the XCa that expands the yummy-goodness even more with a tire-pressure monitor and two additional rider modes. Is there more? You betcha. Trumpet really went to great lengths to bring top-notch touring capabilities and an adventure-some spirit together.

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.

Still perfectly off-road capable, the Tiger 800 XR comes with an adjustable Showa suspension and features ride-by-wire for better throttle response and smooth power delivery.

2015 Triumph Tiger Explorer Spoked Wheels

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). With oodles of features such as traction control, cruise control, switchable antilock brakes, a 12V power socket and a beefy 950W alternator, the 2015 Tiger Explorer Spoked Wheels is a right proper tourer and is just as comfortable — and maybe more comfortable — when you venture off the beaten path. With the flick of a switch mounted on the handlebars, you have access to the onboard computer that includes two trip meters, time elapsed, distance covered, average speed, average fuel consumption, real-time fuel consumption and range to empty, plus a load of other monitors that watch mechanical and electrical systems and control creature comforts.

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.

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.
