Triumph Motorcycles India has launched the new and updated Tiger 800 range of motorcycles in India. The prices start at Rs. 11.76 lakh for the XR variant, Rs. 13.13 lakh for XRx and Rs. 13.76 lakh for the XCx variant. Needless to say, Triumph's Tiger 800 range is one of the most popular adventure motorcycles in India and with the new models coming in, Triumph hopes to bolster its presence in the Indian adventure motorcycle segment. The new-gen Tiger range gets more than 200 of them and will be offered in the road-oriented XR range and the off-road oriented XC range. Since 2010, Triumph has sold more than 68,000 Tiger models globally, cementing the bike's status as one of most popular adventure motorcycles around the world as well.
We have already ridden the top-spec Tiger 800 XRT and the Tiger 800 XCA in the picturesque country of Morocco earlier this year and were impressed by the refinement and practicality that these bikes offer. Triumph says that it has upgraded the styling, packed lots of tech, refined the ergonomics and even played around with the triple engine to offer better punch. The new Tiger 800 range will be offered in new colours and will have new graphics, badges and detailing as well.
