CUSTOM TRIUMPH TIGER 800XC??????


If this is true from the Triumph Facebook page and also thanks to markbvt & walker from the Triumph Tiger 800 Forum, then I know Cheryl & I waited for a reason to see what Triumph would do with this great bike.  Now…did they or will they add handlebar controls and ambient temperature with on/off ABS button???? Nyah-Nyah

Tubeless spoke tires?  Notice the loss of the Nissin brakes and the fact Triumph has join the band wagon using BREMBO???  BMW uses Brembo brakes.  I would say in my remedial knowledge this is a step up.

Triumph has been listening!  Good on Triumph!  Apparently this was indeed at the show in Italy…so, the next question is this a real release bike or just for show?  Any thoughts?  Comments, opinions?? 

***I believe that some folks from Triumph might be still be reading this BLOG…why not post comments to them…who knows they might read this post!  ;-)***

Also debuting is this one-off Tiger 800XC concept created as a showcase by Triumph’s accessories division. Built using official Triumph accessories, most of which feature new finishes, and high spec components such as Öhlins mechatronic suspension and tubeless Kineo wheels, it’s the ultimate version of Triumph’s best selling bike and guaranteed to be a real showstopper!

  1. I wouldn’t say brembo are a step up by any means. Brembos cannot be rebuilt and will get you to a stop jut the same . I can understand though as a mechanic not being crazy about working on nissin but in my opinion adding brembo is just a cheap ploy to catch customers eye.
