“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

Mr. Vimal Sumbly, Managing Director, Triumph Motorcycles India said - 
We are focused on creating motorcycles with a perfect balance of power, handling and style that totally involve the rider and bring out the best in them. Triumph Motorcycles has seen exceptional success within the adventure category here in India. Honestly we also feel that this as a category has huge potential for growth within the luxury motorcycles industry here in India. We are extremely happy to announce the launch of the new Tiger XR in just three months from the launch of the Tiger XRx and XCx, which have received tremendous positive response from our esteemed customers in the country. To give an excellent value proposition, the new Tiger XR will be assembled locally through the CKD route in India. Whatever be the road, whatever be the distance and whatever be the challenge, the new Tiger XR has been built to excel!

Triumph Motorcycles India has been riding high on the success of achieving record sales of close to 2000 motorcycles across model categories in its 18 months here in India. With the launch of new Tiger XR the varied portfolio will now boast 4 adventure motorcycles within the category and a total of 14 internationally acclaimed motorcycles in 5 motorcycling categories. Winner across motorcycle categories, Triumph Motorcycles India boasts of having as many as 12 major auto awards. Triumph Motorcycles also very recently added Indore to its list of already existing 10 showrooms across the country. The brand is also looking to open Jaipur dealership very soon and take this count to 12.


Rider focussed technology is what makes this new Tiger stand apart from the competition. Technology that has been developed to optimise the ride both on and off-road.  This includes:

Ride by Wire

The introduction of a full Ride by Wire system that interacts with the ECU opens up a whole new level of technology.  With the inclusion of advanced ABS, traction control the new Tiger 800 leads the segment as a technological tour de force and adds new levels of active safety. 

Switchable ABS

The switchable ABS system is standard on all Tiger 800 models and uses the latest technology to prevent wheel lock-up, ensuring maximum confidence and control in any road conditions.  On the XR the ABS can be turned On or Off.  

Triumph Traction Control: 

Triumph’s Traction Control (TTC) system prevents the unexpected spinning of the rear wheel, cutting the engine torque to avoid the loss of lateral grip ensuring maximum confidence and control both on or off road.  The rider can select their TTC setting to either On or Off.

Trip Computer: 

The Tiger 800 XR features a trip computer. 


The original Tiger 800 redefined what riders should expect from the middleweight Adventure class and the new Tiger has pushed that further. Delivering an even more satisfying, exciting and rewarding ride, the new Tiger is a more comfortable and refined motorcycle with greater  fuel efficiency, more agility and improved touring capability for 2015. 

The Tiger’s 95PS three cylinder engine gives the bike a unique character and sophisticated feel. Inside the engine the raft of changes have reduced mechanical noise and strengthened the premium feel of the triple. The 800cc unit is a rewarding engine that pulls strongly and smoothly from low speeds, delivers a wide spread of mid-range power and still lets the rider use the higher revs, right up to the 10,000rpm. Making the most of the engine’s eager character has now been made even easier thanks to a lighter and more precise gear change action, which now uses parts from Triumph’s class-leading Daytona 675 supersport bike.


The new Tiger XR has a class-leading chassis which translates to outstanding handling on the road, and increased capability off road. The Tiger gives plenty of feedback to the rider and has high stability and neutrality, putting the bike exactly where the rider wants it to be on both smooth and uneven surfaces. The XR model is fitted with Showa suspension, calibrated to ensure excellent handling on any surface. The front suspension is a 43 mm Showa USD fork, now anodised black. The rear suspension includes a Showa mono-shock which is preload adjustable, allowing easy adjustment and flexibility to tailor the suspension setting to meet the requirements of every journey,  be it a spirited solo ride or a comfortable two-up with panniers adventure. 

The new Tiger XR is fitted with light-weight cast aluminium wheels, 17-inch diameter at the rear and 19-inch at the front, measuring 4.25 and 2.5 inches in width respectively, they ensure superb handling and stability.  


The new Tiger 800 has been given a new look with a new radiator shroud and tank side panels that have sharp lines and taut surfaces. The new bodywork gives the bike a more prone, dynamic stance but the styling isn’t all just about cosmetic gain, the Tiger’s fuel tank styling also ducts hot air from the engine away from the rider’s legs. The new “Titanium” powder coat finish on the double-tube frame highlights the rugged looks of the frame whilst the semi-matt finish on the engine combined with the bike’s black wheels and handlebars gives the new Tiger a sophisticated, premium look.

Practical touches are plentiful. Alongside the adjustable rider seat height and handlebar position the bike gets a large-for-the-class 19 litre fuel tank, a quick-adjust headlight angle lever for 2-up riding, an Auxiliary power socket near the ignition switch and an aluminium sump guard as standard on all models.


Comfort has been improved with both versions getting changes in geometry designed to reduce weight on the wrists and to increase leg room. With both bikes also having adjustable seats and handlebars, the rider has the most comfortable and adaptable riding position in the class. 

The new Tiger 800 XR comes with an unlimited mileage, two-year factory warranty, as do all new Triumph motorcycles.

The NEW Triumph Tiger 800 range now includes the ultimate in choice for adventure rider with four exciting bikes with prices starting from just Rs 10.50.000 ex showroom Delhi for the Tiger 800 XR.
