The 2020 Triumph Tiger 800 XR model range consists of the XR base model, the XRx and XRx Low, and the range topping XRt. The XR models are the more road and urban focused adventure bikes, however they are certainly still able to handle light off-road duty.
All models share the 800cc DOHC liquid-cooled inline triple that produces 95 HP and 58 lbs-ft of torque, passing through a 6 speed transmission.
The Tiger 800 XR model features a tubular steel trellis frame, with Showa upside down forks at the front and a Showa semi-adjustable rear monoshock for suspension. Front and rear brakes are Nissin, and have standard ABS paired with traction control. One of the best features is that the ergonomics are adjustable, with seat height, handlebar, brake, and clutch lever positions all being customizable.
The Tiger 800 XRx switches out the LCD panel of the XR for a 5 inch TFT panel. A Brembo monoblock brake replaces the Nissin, and a taller, 5 position adjustable windscreen is fitted. Handguards are also fitted as standard, along with heated grips. Cruise control is also available.
The Tiger 800 XRx Low features all the same items as the XRx, but has a 2 inch lower seat height at 30 inches, and bespoke suspension adjustments to make it comfortable.
The Tiger 800 XRt is the top of the line for the XR models, and features fully adjustable front and rear Showa suspension, LED lighting all around, heated seats, and an easy to use center stand.
