Triumph Tigers improved for 2018

Triumph has updated the Tiger with new 800cc and 1200cc models.

The new Tiger 1200 has removed the “Explorer” name from its title and has been refreshed with a few improvements. This new 1200 has been on a diet and has reduced its weight by 10kg thanks to refinements across the bike and now features Shift Assist for clutch-less gear shifting.

Six variants of the 1200 and the 800 will be introduced to offer a broad range of styling differences. The 800 Tiger has had some minor tweaks to the exhaust and the gearing to aid performance and even comes with A2 licence capability.

Triumph say that the ‘new, significantly updated Tiger 800 XC and XR family has once again pushed the boundaries of this world-renowned range with over 200 chassis and engine upgrades. A suite of major off-road improvements complements these that work hand-in-hand with carefully crafted on-road enhancements.’

Triumph has specifically targeted improvements to technology, comfort, and style alongside the introduction of a new generation engine that maximises the rider experience. As a result, the new Tiger 800 is better in every way – both on the road and off road.

Triumph’s brand-new Tiger 1200 range has taken major steps forward with significant engineering and technological updates – the result is an even more responsive adventure bike that combines both maximum enjoyment on the road with complete confidence off-road.
