Last month, some leaked documents previewed a range expansion in Triumph’s Tiger lineup, with about 6 models derived from the Tiger 800 platform coming to lure you into the path of adventure. Two of them are here at EICMA 2014 and are called the Tiger XCx and the XRx.

The two new models are the better equipped trim levels of the XC and XR versions, where the former is designed for more off-roading time, while the latter feels better on the asphalt.

New for all the models is ABS, traction control, ride-by-wire, traction control, lighter throttle response, adjustable seats and handlebars as well as significant fuel consumption cuts, along with some design changes made through a new radiator shroud and tank side panels.The x-tra
That little “x” signifies some extra features you get on the new models, like the fact you can customize settings for the ABS and traction control instead of just flicking them ON or OFF like on the standard XR and XC.

The XCx and XRx feature four throttle mappings - Rain, Road, Sport and Off-Road, each allowing an increased level of throttle response, and three riding modes: Road, Off-Road and Programmable Rider.

Riding more on the road? Then you should consider the Triumph Tiger XRx, which comes with alloy casted rims, a shorter suspension travel, an extra power socket to juice up your devices, a more comfortable pillion seat, a machined rear brake reservoir and a radiator guard.

But if off-roading suits your style better, the XCx is definitely what you have to get. This version adds a bash plate, longer rear suspension travel, wire rims, hand guards, strong machined foot pegs, heated grips and seat, a GPS and a more powerful alternator.Final figures
Power for the new machines is assured by the existing 800 cc 3-cylinder units, cranking 95 hp and 79 Nm of torque. However, they are said to be slightly improved when it comes to fuel consumption, offering a 17% economy over the last model.

As for pricing, the basic XR and XC are to begin at £8,500-£9,000 while the XRx and XCx should be offered at £9,700 and £10,200 accordingly.
