The suspension travel for the Tiger 800XC is a huge 220mm at the front, 215mm at the rear. Just what you need on poor condition trails. We fitted 45mm Showa upside down forks along with a preload and rebound adjustable Showa monoshock so you can adjust for either off or on-road riding.
We needed to give you enough stopping force on the road without being too sharp or intimidating in the dirt. So at the front of the Tiger 800XC is a pair of two-piston sliding callipers and 308mm discs, with a single-piston calliper at the rear and a 255mm disc.
ABS is standard but this can be switched off for off-road riding where you might want to be able to lock up a wheel.
We added spoked wheels to the Tiger 800XC for better cushioning on rough terrain. The front is a big 21inch diameter to take dedicated off-road tyres and cope with holes and ridges. And the front mudguard is higher so that clogging mud won’t spoil your ride.
We built the Tiger 800XC to have genuine off-road capability, so it’s tall with an upright and very spacious riding position. We made the bars wider than the standard Tiger 800s to give you extra manoeuvrability and the seat is lofty, although it’s easily adjusted without the need for tools.
Despite your high up stance the screen does a great job of fending off the wind pressure so you can stay at motorway speeds for as long as you need.
We even gave your passenger plenty of room, chunky grab handles and well positioned footrests so long distances are no less comfortable on the back than they are for you.
You can adjust the seat height without tools between 845mm and 865mm to suit different kinds of riding.
The aluminium handlebars can also be adjusted fore and aft and the handlebar levers are span-adjustable.
As you’d expect the Tiger 800XC uses the same tubular steel trellis frame as the Tiger 800 so you know it’s strong enough to take the knocks during serious off road use. The rear subframe is the same, designed to take our capacious panniers and big top box, plus a passenger, then go places where pure road bikes daren’t venture.

The three-cylinder 95PS engine, like the rest of the Tiger 800XC, is made for adventure.
With so much torque spread right across the rev range you can pull hard from low revs. That’s great for overtaking without the need to work the gearbox and touring effortlessly through mountainous terrain, but it’s also exactly what you need to dig yourself out of tough off-road situations.
But this is a Triumph so there’s a lot more to it than clinical horsepower.
We gave the Tiger an animated snarl that adds a whole new layer of character. An engine that communicates and encourages you to use it to the best of its, and your, ability.
The rugged dependability applies just as much to the transmission: six gears, a tough clutch with a light lever action that’s needed in difficult conditions, and chain drive for simplicity, reduced weight and the best ground clearance This makes it easy to alter the final drive ratio for sustained low speed riding.
Our confidence provides you with a two-year unlimited mileage warranty on your new Triumph and Genuine Accessories. Alongside the knowledge that we give you a 12 month unlimited mileage warranty on replacement parts.
The Tiger 800 carries 6,000 mile (10,000km) service intervals.
