Triumph to Bring 6 New Tiger 800 Models to EICMA

According to some documents which apparently leaked in the US, Triumph is preparing a massive offensive in the adventure bike segment, with no less than 6 models derived from the Tiger 800 platform. Four brand-new names are mentioned in the document, each of them standing for an individual trim level for the new Tigers.

Triumph will bring into the showrooms the XCA (XC Adventure?), XCX, XRT (Touring version?) and XRX, alongside two base models, XR and XC. The XC are more off-road focused, while the XR are prone to more casual riding conditions. The XC machines are all equipped with wire wheels, WP suspensions with a longer travel, as opposed to the XR’s shorter suspension play and cast wheels.Fully-loaded bikes ahoy
All the new Triumph machines are said to arrive with quite a lot of new electronic gimmicks, such as ABS, traction control and ride-by-wire. The seats will be adjustable and the papers also show 15% better fuel economy for the new bikes, while CARB indicates less emissions, too.

Riding modes (three of them), cruise control, hand guards, center stands and adjustable windshields will also be on the menu for the 2015 Triumph XRX, XCX, XR Touring and XC Adventure models. The XRX gets a power socket, machined rear brake reservoir, and a radiator guard, with the XC Adventure adding a bash plate, machined pegs, panniers, heated grips and seat, GPS and a more powerful alternator.

You can check the photo after the jump for a more comprehensive equipment chart and figure out which of the new Triumph Tiger 800 will be your next machine. Some UK prices are also mentioned, with the cheapest bike being the XR, at £8,500, which so far translates to $13,625 or €10,785. The top-spec XC is listed at a base price of £11,400. To get a better picture, this means €14,465 or $18,270. The final prices will be announced soon, possibly at the EICMA in November.
