Triumph Tiger 800XC


Recommended Posts

Triumph unveiled its eagerly awaited Tiger 800 and Tiger 800XC adventure touring 2011 models at the internationally renowned EICMA show in Milan, Italy on 2 Nov.

 

Wonder when it will reach Singapore shores and how much it will cost. Any Triumph owners care to share the ups an downs about owning a Triumph? I hear that the triple motor is very sweet.

 

How is the servicing and parts availability with local agent, Mah motor?

The arrow exhaust in one of the photos looks good though. The stock end can seems like it came off a yamaha super tenere :D Must be the euro4 emission controls.

get the beemer

 

it may be 2k more now, but when ure prepared to sell, the depreciation on the trumpet will be greater than the beemer.

 

service @ both mah & pml are not top notch for your dollar.

Most people go through life following the crowd.

 

Others think for themselves.

 

They go their own way.

Just went Mah on last week..

 

Machine price for Tiger 800 - $21000

Machine price for Tiger 800XC - $24000

Wit the otr pricing it might be worth for me to get the Super Tenere instead...

 

hMM very tempted to get tis bike.. Since review is good n some says its better than the F800.

 

The bike looks simple wit not much electronic gadgets.. which i prefer actually..Clean..

 

Now juz wanna know how the support for Triumph at MAH..

Thanks DOINK1 for the machine price update. I wonder how did agent come up with the OTR price quoted.

 

Machine price for Tiger 800 - $21000 ($27000 OTR) - +$6000

Machine price for Tiger 800XC - $24000 ($29000 OTR) - +$5000

 

Who knows what are the current OTR items? Can't be additional $5000 or $6000 right?

 

1) Insurance (subjective to age)

2) IU & Bracket

3) Veh Registration

4) 6 Months Road Tax

5) Any other items?

One of the new kids on the block after the S10, so it has stirred up my interest. Quite a neat package without the BMW premium pricing. Quite on par with comparable jap models. Lets see where this discussion thread leads to. :)

Yup cannot be OTR with so much difference..Maybe with interest?? Hmmm don't think so..

 

Turn off part.. Not together with panniers & Accs.

That's also the OTR price MAH quoted me during SBF road show.

Here's my own break down:

24k machine price

+ another 7% (GST)

+ COE (based on 1.6k)

+ IU (~$150)

+ Road Tax (~$150)

+ Insurance (~1k)

 

Amount up close to 29k.

LEAF departure is B`cos of WIND pursit or TREE didn't ask her to stay?

Both machine price mentioned are without ABS.ABS is an optional upgrade on both models if i can remember correctly cos I went Mah yesterday.Even so,i don't see why OTR quotation is that high??Prolly just a rough quote... Btw, suspension is pretty firm on e 800.As compared to most road biased bike,e 800 has 180mm of suspension travel.Supposingly giving it e extra abilities to do pretty LIGHT off road work... Will give more reviews when i collect my bike:)

So Joe, ur getting the road version instead of the adventure type..

 

So have you collected your bike? If yes then review pls :p

 

Collected my bike 4 days ago.So far e seat n posture is very comfy.Bars are are easy to reach.Handling is very neutral and well balanced.e tyres that e bike came with are Pirelli Scorpion Trail.It grips e road like a road biased tyre.I'm actually quite surprised but e highlight of it all is e engine.Torque is available off e throttle especially 3k rpm onwards.This thing just invites u to play.I'm trying to find e negative point about this bike still cos i'm sure there is.Bike is still running in and at this point in time,i'm getting 5L/100km consistently.I ride below 5k rpm as e manual stated.Will update u guys again in a few days time.Btw i wonder who are e other 2 Tiger riders??

Did my 1st servicing.Rode close to 1000km already and e immediate difference is e engine.Torque is available as soon as you crack open or twist e throttle on any gears.Given e flat torque curve,it has oodles of grunt everywhere.The engine sound is orgasmic!Brakes are okay for normal street ride.To me,e suspension are set up nicely for SG roads.Posture is comfy with a good commanding view and seat height is reasonable as it's height adjustable.Currently i get 5L/100km of riding.Take note that i'm still running in e engine.Tachometer dash is informative to me.Having ridden most Jap bikes with basic instruments(not e high end ones of course),this Tiger 800 is pretty informative with

•digital speedometer

•analogue tachometer

•clock

•gear selected

•two trip displays

•distance

•average speed

•fuel consumption

•time

•fuel gauge

•distance to empty

•ABS on/off

•service reminder

•...and it's TPMS-ready

Clutch has a light feel.Cables and wires are neatly arranged or hidden in some cases.12v power sockets are located beside e ignition.Genius design especially for GPS users like me.The Pirelli Scopions gave excellent grip and more importantly that front fork dive,so often present with this type of bike,was absent.Ok sure the front forks dipped slightly under heavy braking but it was quite acceptable to be honest and a pleasant change from some bikes I could mention.I'm unsure about this but i think e Scorpions are wet road dual purpose tyres cos it gave me confidence riding in e wet.Considering this was not a sports bike but an Adventure road bike with an ability to do pretty light offroad work,it all just felt planted, well sorted, and confidence inspiring.

Tyres come factory equipped with the L-shaped valve for ease of pumping.Small but smart move from Triumph and e headlight.It's adjustable.Gear shifting is slick.

 

Now comes e bad point.

1) e pillion footrest turns me off.It just looks weird to me having it welded to e rear subframe and potruding out a little.

2) Triumph Tiger 800 doesn't come with a rear hugger so all e dirt and debris will be splattered on e undertray - Already addressed that issue with an R&G rear hugger which looks trick!

3) Depending on your ride,i'm quite worried that small rocks or any other debris might damage the radiator at high speeds due to e stock front fender - Addressed that issue with a wire mesh radiator cover.

4) Despite e beautifully set up front fork, i really wished it was fully adjustable (wth i'm asking for too much)

5) Despite e unique tank design, u can't put a normal sized tankbag cos e surface area makes it impossible to stick unless it's e small ones or if u opt for Triumph's tank harness and their original tankbag.

6) Bike doesn't come with hazard light:pity:
