Triumph Motorcycles India has introduced the Tiger 800 range previous year. Now, the company has launched the new variant of the adventure tourer, the Tiger 800 XCA in India. It has received a major enhancement in its underpinnings as well as features. The all-new premium top-specs variant is available at a price of Rs 15.16 lakh, ex-showroom (Delhi).
The all-new XCA has joined other Tiger India-specs variants including 800 XR, XRx and XCx. It is developed with new technologies focused on off-road riding. Commenting on the new launch, General Manager, Triumph Motorcycles India, Shoeb Farooq said, “With more than 1000 Tigers already on the road, Triumph Tiger undoubtedly is the largest premium adventure motorcycle in India. We are proud to launch the Tiger 800 XCA today which adds to our already strong adventure offering to Indian audiences.”
In the front fascia, the all-new Triumph Tiger 800 XCA is now integrated with LED headlight highlighting foglights, indicators and DRLs. Some new features equipped in the latest variant includes ergonomically backlit switch cubes, 5-way joystick, heated rider and pillion seats, LED auxiliary lighting, 6 screen styles, 3 x TFT styles, centre stand, and CNC machined footrests. It is the modified variant of XCX which is the previous model.
The adventure tourer has got all the features which are equipped in XCX. It has received lower ratio 1st gear improving acceleration and off-road traction, light-weight exhaust, 5” TFT display instruments, adjustable seat height, 5 position screen and aero deflectors, new Cruise Control, laced wheels with Bridgestone Battlewing tyres, engine protection bars, aluminium sump guard, aluminium radiator guard, handlebar position, and brake and clutch levers.
The premium variant is outfitted with 21-inch front and 17-inch rear wheel which was also seen in the existing variant. In terms of suspension, the super-bike features WP 43mm USD fork and monoshock. The braking duties are handled by front 305mm brakes discs with Brembo two-piston callipers, and rear 255mm disc highlighting Nissin single-piston calliper.
Compared to the previous XCX, the latest variant gets an updated side portion which makes it more attractive and sporty. It is powered by a super powerful 800cc three-cylinder powertrain which churns out 94bhp of peak power and 79Nm of torque. The engine is combined with a six-speed transmission. It also features ride-by-wire electronic throttle control. The company has also enhanced six-riding modes: Road, Sport, Track, Rider-Customisable, Off-Road and Off-Road Pro.
The all-new Off-Road Pro will offer an amazing off-road riding experience. According to Shoeb Farooq, “The new Tiger 800 has undergone years of research and development and is the best adventure-ready Tiger ever built. Triumph has developed a host of major new technology and performance updates designed to enhance the new Tiger 800 XCA’s capability both on and off-road. With developments that complement the Tiger’s accessible and agile easy riding style, as well as its existing distinctive Tiger poise and presence, the new Tiger 800 XCA is built for maximum adventure – every single day.”
With improving the technological features and premium design, the company aims at attracting more adventure fans in the Indian market. The new Tiger 800 XCA is introduced in three shades: Korosi Red, Crystal White & Marine. The official bookings have been already commenced at a token amount of just Rs 1 lakh. The British automaker can start the deliveries of the bike later this month. It rival against the likes of BMW 850 GS, Honda Africa Twin, Ducati Multistrada 950, and Kawasaki Versys 1000.
