Both the Triumph Tiger 1200 and 800 was revealed at the 2017 EICMA motorcycle show in Italy. The new Tiger range now comes with several updates. The Tiger 800 features an improved version of the 800cc three-cylinder engine producing 94bhp and 79Nm of torque.
The 2018 Triumph Tiger 800 now comes with a shorter first gear which improves the off-road traction and low-end response and acceleration. The bike also gets a new lighter exhaust system.
On the design front, the new Tiger range features a sharper and aggressive front end with new LED headlamps. The new paint scheme and decals make the motorcycle look muscular. The 2018 Tiger 800 features a new TFT instrument cluster on the top-spec and mid-level variants.
The base XR trim of the Tiger 800 is equipped with LCD instrument display. The 2018 Triumph Tiger 800 will be offered in five variants: XR, XCx, XRx, XRt, and XCa.
The 2018 Triumph Tiger 1200 draws power from the existing 1,215cc three-cylinder engine 141bhp and 122Nm of torque. The bike also gets lighter flywheel and camshaft, magnesium cam cover and Arrow exhaust system on tops-pec variants.
The 2018 Triumph Tiger 1200 features adaptive cornering lights, LED headlamps, adjustable TFT screen, new riding modes and hill hold control on the mid and top-spec variants. The Tiger 1200 is offered in four XR and two XC trims, but India is likely to get the XR trims.
