History

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Triumph Tiger 800 page on 20 August 2020, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

The Triumph Tiger 800 is a dual-sport motorcycle launched in 2010 by British manufacturer Triumph Motorcycles. The Tiger 800 XR is a more road-oriented bike, while the Tiger 800 XC is designed as a more off-road vehicle.

There are a number of key differences between the two models. The XR has cast alloy wheels, with a 19-inch at the front, while the XC has spoked wheels with alloy rims and a larger 21-inch front. They have the same size of 17" at the rear.

The Tiger 800 XC has longer-travel suspension at the front and rear, with 45 mm forks, compared with 43 mm on the Tiger 800 XR. The Tiger 800 XR has a motorcycle saddle adjustable from 810 to 830 millimetres (32 to 33 in), while the Tiger 800 XC saddle is taller at 845 to 865 millimetres (33.3 to 34.1 in). The XC has more aggressive off-road looks, including a small beak-like high-level mudguard at the front, similar to the BMW F800GS, a bike the Tiger is designed to compete against. Overall the XC is longer, wider, taller and heavier than the XR. The Tiger 800 XC was named "Best Dual Sport" for 2011 by Cycle World.

Both models share most components, including the engine, 19-litre (4.2 imp gal; 5.0 US gal) fuel tank, instrument panel, steel trellis frame, and brakes, which have optional ABS.
