The British TRIUMPH Tiger 800XC 2013 is a very strong competitor in the medium size allroad touring enduro segment. The mid size Tiger is not the most agile off the road and the fuel tank design speaks of riding mostly in sitting posture, but never the less, the 800XC comes with 21 inch front wheel and spoked rims which is important for allroad riding. The suspension travel is longer than the urban touring version can offer and a wider handlebar fits to the ideal nature of routing. The 800XC is a hard core allroad touring enduro in every sense, but not an offroader or a trail touring bike. Also the refuelling range is typically modest, but there is a cure for that. The TRIUMPH Tiger 800XC 2013 is perfect for solo riding, as an everyday bike and the power plant with the substantial payload potential easily enables taking the passenger on board too.
The TRIUMPH Tiger 800XC 2013 has a characteristic triple cylinder engine which differs from all other allroad touring bikes in the category. The sporty triple makes the Tiger both fascinating and interesting also from the touring point of view too, since the torque is super smooth and very practical to deliver. There are hardly any vibrations. The 800XC carries a huge payload like a true touring bike should, but still I would choose the TIGER mostly for solo riding. There are ergonomic adjustments for the handlebar and the seat as standard which is good news for most of us. The factory offers additionally 20 mm. lower rider seat which extends the rider spectrum even more. Although the triple is very capable from the performance point of view, the 800XC is also one of the most interesting allroad touring enduro for women, thanks to the adjustments, smooth and very controllable torque delivery.
