Triumph Motorcycles has just launched its fourth adventure motorcycle, the Tiger 800 XR in India at Rs. 10.5 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi). Addition of the dynamic adventure bike in the company’s Indian portfolio has made the company a leading brand of adventure motorcycling in India. Triumph Motorcycles has received an amazing response for its adventure motorcycles in India as a result of which the Tiger XR has been brought to the country as well.

Launched within three months of the Tiger XRx and Tiger XCx models, the latest launch will be a value for money proposition in India due to the fact that it will be brought via the CKD route into the country and will be locally assembled. The bike gets its power from a 800cc, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 12 valve, in-line three-cylinder engine that belts out 95 PS of power at 9250 RPM and 79 Nm of peak torque at 7850 RPM.
