Triumph Tiger 800 XCA has been launched in India for INR 15.16 lakh. The motorcycle is notably the top-spec middleweight Tiger variant with distinctive features that help in performance-enhancement on the rough terrain. The booking amount for the model is INR 1 lakh while deliveries will start most probably in April 2019. The newly-launched Tiger 800 XCA rivals the BMW F850GS and Honda Africa Twin in a better way than all other variants. The motorcycle comes with multiple riding modes with an option to create a personal setting also. Not just that, the front and rear wheel measures 21-inch and 17-inch, bringing 220mm travel at the front and 215mm at the rear.
The 800cc, three-cylinder engine on the motorcycle is good for 94 HP and 79 Nm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. Triumph has officially announced that more than 1000 units of Tiger are already on the Indian roads and adding this practical new option will further help them improve sales by targeting off-road riding fans. The Triumph Tiger series is also available with an Explorer variant that features a bigger 1215cc engine. The most powerful variant is good for 141 HP and 122 Nm. The base variant of Triumph Tiger is available with alloy wheels and limited wheel travel for extensive highway use and tarmac-based riding for longer than usual distances.
