2015 Tiger – No Ordinary Adventure Bike

Whatever the road, whatever the distance, whatever the challenge, the new Tiger 800 range has been built to excel. Featuring a host of rider focused technology such as the standard fitment of Triumph Traction Control and switchable ABS, the new Tiger with its powerful and more fuel efficient 95PS triple engine is up for any task.

Delivering a seamless flow of torque across the rev range, the Tiger 800 is as perfectly suited to long distance rides as it is to tackling the tough stuff. The second generation 800cc engine now features a ride-by-wire throttle system which provides smoother power delivery, better response, and lower emissions. The result is a 17% improvement in fuel efficiency that coupled with the capacious 19l fuel tank means you can ride longer.

Available in two different flavours, the touring focused XR range, and the off-road biased XC range, there is a Tiger 800 to suit everyone. We have also introduced new equipment levels with both the XRx and XCx variants. These bring even higher levels of standard equipment such as Cruise Control and the addition of Riding Modes to tackle any terrain.

Switchable ABS

The switchable ABS system is standard on all Tiger 800 models for added safety, with both On or Off settings.

Riders on the XRx or XCx can further customise their preferences for the ABS settings via the three Riding Modes.  When Off Road mode is selected, the ABS is disabled to the rear wheel and the system also allows a level of front wheel slip.  This provides the rider with a level of electronic intervention under braking whilst optimizing their off road enjoyment.

Throttle Maps

With a choice of 4 different throttle maps on XRx and XCx models,

1. The Rain map reduces the throttle response to suit wet and slippery situations.

2. The Road map represents the standard map, extremely linear and smooth for everyday conditions.

3. The Sport map offers a sharper and quicker response with less throttle twist required.

4. The Off-Road map provides the optimal throttle response to face dirt tracks and unpaved terrains.

Three Riding Modes

A key feature on the XRx and XCx models is the ability to configure the bike to the terrain at the press of a button.  This automatically configures the ABS, Traction Control, and Throttle Maps to best tackle the route ahead.

1. ROAD SETTING – automatically sets the ABS, Traction Control, and Throttle Map to ‘ROAD’ setting.

2. OFF ROAD SETTING – automatically sets the ABS, Traction Control, and Throttle Map to “OFF-ROAD” therefore reducing the ABS and traction control intervention allowing for a level of slip.

3. PROGRAMMABLE RIDER MODE – allows the rider to select their chosen settings for ABS, Traction Control, and a choice of 4 x Throttle Maps independently.

Cruise Control

The new Tiger is the first bike in the middleweight adventure sector to offer cruise control.  Standard on the XRx and XCx models, cruise control makes light work of long rides reducing rider fatigue and optimising fuel consumption.


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.

With 79Nm of torque at 7,850rpm, the engine 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 limit.  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.

Fuel consumption has been hugely improved – up by 17% on the “mixed use” cycle from 55mpg to 65mpg, and given the 19 L fuel tank capacity it now has a potential range of 272 miles to empty.  This is a 50 miles improvement per full tank of fuel over the outgoing Tiger 800.


The new Tiger has a class-leading chassis which translates to outstanding handling on the 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 models are 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.

WP suspension has been used to further boost the Off-Road riding qualities of the new XC models.  The WP 43mm USD fork, with rebound and compression damping is easily adjustable through dedicated clickers on the fork tops. The rear suspension unit is a WP mono shock adjustable for preload and rebound damping and has a dedicated dirt protector for the RSU body.


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-matte finish on the engine combined with the bike’s black wheels and handlebars gives the new Tiger a sophisticated, premium look.

Nice one Billy!

McConnell crowned British Supersport Champion

After one of the most dramatic weekends of the year, the Gloucester-based Smiths Triumph Racing Team duly wrapped up their second Motorpoint British Supersport Championship win in three years when Australian ace Billy McConnell secured the title at Brands Hatch today.billy-730x380

The Aussie, from Adelaide, brought the factory-backed Triumph Daytona 675R home in eighth place to secure sufficient points ahead of Yamaha rival Alastair Seeley but there was heartbreak for Smiths team-mate Graeme Gowland when the Hexham, Northumberland rider crashed out of today’s race on the very first lap, meaning his title hopes were over and he could only finish third in the title race.

It wasn’t straight forward as the Smiths duo suffered mixed fortunes all weekend, none more so than in Saturday’s qualifying session with Gowland taking eighth and McConnell way back on the eighth row after falling early on. Both riders put in sterling in performances in the afternoon’s Sprint race though with Graeme taking sixth place and Billy riding heroically into ninth which meant he retained his title lead and only lost three points to his team-mate. However, with Alastair Seeley finishing in second, there was now just 21 points splitting the leading trio going into the final race.

R12 MCE British Superbikes Brands Hatch GP - 17/18/19 October 2014Starting from positions seventh and tenth on the grid for the Feature race, both riders made good starts, particularly Graeme, but his challenge ended almost before it began as he cruelly crashed out at Druids on the opening lap. With Seeley leading the race, Billy still had to ensure he finished no lower than 11th and keeping a close eye on his pit board he did all he needed to do and crossed the line in eighth place to finally get his hands on the number one plate.

Billy McConnell: “It’s been a stressful last couple of rounds but to finally win the British Championship is brilliant and I was crying my eyes out on that final lap! I’ve come so close in recent years and it’s probably why my results haven’t been the greatest in the final races as I wanted it so bad. With Graeme going out early, it took the pressure off my shoulders but it was probably one of the longest races of my life and I just brought the bike home. I’ve got a fantastic team behind me and we’ve been consistent over the 12 rounds whilst I’ve had a fantastic team-mate pushing me all year so I feel for Graeme. It’s a shame he went out early and that little bit of extra luck that you need was on my side this weekend. I’ve been in the top three for the last five years so to win at last is amazing and very emotional.”
