2011 Triumph Tiger 800 XC | Quick Look

2011 Triumph Motorcycle

Powered by a three-cylinder motor-not exactly what you usually take out into the dirt-the Tiger XC sports nominally off-road tires on laced wheels.

However, there is plenty of ground clearance and not a lot of vulnerable bodywork. The radiator is tucked up high in the frame, while a skidplate (but no frame rails) protect the under-motor exhaust system.

A menacing linked pair of headlights and adjustable flyscreen give the bike both practicality and style.The steel-tube frame follows Triumph tradition, though it is certainly all-new.

It may seem an unlikely dirt bike, but it handles off-pavement excursions far better than one might expect.
