2011 Triumph Tiger Goes to the US, Pricing Revealed

As the all-new Tigers are ready to make their public unveiling at the Long Beach IMS Show (December 17-19, Long Beach, CA), the North American division of Triumph has also revealed pricing details of the two models. Both the Tiger 800 and the 80)XC model will start arriving at North American dealerships in April 2011.

Both bikes are available in Phantom Black or Crystal White. In addition to that, the two models also share the same tough steel frame, Nissin brakes, and adjustable handlebars and seat height.

Standard features of the new Tiger include key-coded immobilizer, as well as a switchable ABS system available on both variants.

The bikes are fitted with a new three-cylinder 799cc powerplant that delivers 95 horsepower and 79 Nm (58 lb.ft.) of torque, while using a 19-liter (5-gallon) fuel tank.

The comprehensive instrumentation includes a fuel gauge and trip computer, while a high-spec 550w generator is fitted to allow riders to safely fit electrical accessories such as heated grips, auxiliary lights and satellite navigation equipment.
