Does adding accessories make a new model Yes if youre a Triumph Tiger 800
Add some heated bits and pannier rails and hey presto Two new Tiger 800 models launched
The Triumph Tiger 800 XRT
And the Triumph Tiger 800 XCA
TRIUMPH has revealed ‘two new Tiger 800 models’ which are actually the same as two existing editions of the bike but with some accessories added.
The two new editions are called the Tiger 800 XRT and the Tiger 800 XCA. The XRT is a slightly higher-spec version of the existing road-biased XRx. The XCA bears the same relation to the existing XCx, which has a more off-road bent.
Both new editions have been given a bigger 650W alternator to power new standard-fitment heated grips and seats, LED fog lights, plus extras the rider may plug in like heated clothing. Both gain a GPS mounting kit and rails for an optional pannier system.
The XRT also gets a tyre pressure monitoring system, a CNC machined brake reservoir and an aluminium radiator guard.
The XCA gets CNC machined pegs and three power sockets instead of two.
It brings the total number of Tiger 800 editions to six. As well as the existing XCx and XRx, the range already included the XC and XR, which are the same minus electronics and riding modes.
At least they’ve kept it simple, with memorable and distinct names.
Visordown first told you about the six variants of the Tiger 800 back in October last year.
