Triumph has launched the 2018 Tiger 800 range for the Indian market at Rs 11.76 lakh onward. The range for India will have three variants: the XR (Rs 11.76 lakh), the XRx (Rs 13.13 lakh), and the off-road geared XCx (Rs 13.76 lakh). All prices are ex-showroom pan India.
All three variants are powered by an 800cc in-line three cylinder motor that produces 94bhp at 9500rpm and peak torque of 79Nm at 8050rpm. This motor is mated to a six-speed gearbox. The two XR variants have Showa suspension with slightly less travel than the top-spec XC variant, which has WP suspension with more travel. The wheels are different, too - the XR range is more an on-road machine, so it gets 19-inch front/17-inch rear alloy wheels. The XC gets a 21-inch front/19-inch rear spoke rim setup. The same focus is applied to tyre choice: XC customers can opt for even more off-road focused tyres if they so wish.
The XRx gets a 5-inch TFT display, adjustable windscreen, LED indicators, a centre stand and knuckle guards - these differentiate it from the base XR. The XCx gets a cage to protect the engine and sump. It also ditches the custom riding mode option for the 'off road pro' mode.
