Triumph has used the Tiger brand name since the mid-30s.
The Triumph Tiger 800 series went into production in 2010. It was updated to the second generation model in 2015 and the range has been expanded to 7 trims since then. A new spy picture a motorcycle which hints at a new variant of the Triumph Tiger series has been spotted by MCN.
The vehicle carries a slightly modified chassis, longer swingarm and a revised rear mono shock linkage. The exhaust pipes appear thicker while the crankcase case seems to follow the language of the new 765 cc powertrain seen in the new 2017 Triumph Street Triple.
The three pot 800 cc in-line, DOHC, liquid-cooled mill is capable of producing a maximum output of 95 PS at 9,250 rpm and a peak torque output of 79 Nm at 7,850 rpm.
The radiator has split into two portions, and the ride height is reduced. The latter has not affected the ground clearance by the reworked sump. Triumph already retails a 760 mm seat height version of Triumph Tiger 800 XRx. A 790 mm seat height version of the off-road centric Tiger 800 XCx is also available.
The spy shot also reveals that the Triumph Tiger gains a new LED daytime running light, while the rear view mirror resembles the one seen in the new Triumph Street Triple RS.
We expect to hear more on this motorcycle this year.
