2012 Triumph Tiger 800

Tiger 800 comes highly-specified as standard. Take a look and you’ll find neat touches all around. Two-piece adjustable seat, suspension and levers combine with hand guards to ensure your comfort, while a built in immobilizer and switchable ABS option are designed with you and the bike’s safety and security in mind.

Practicality is key with the Tiger 800. Superb agility comes as standard thanks to wide, tapered aluminum bars and lightweight cast wheels (19” front and 17” rear). A well appointed rear rack doubles up as a passenger grab rail while up front the comprehensive instrumentation gives you all the vital information you need to know on your journey.

The Tiger 800 also comes with high capacity generator to allow the fitment of multiple electrical accessories for even greater practicality. Over 60 bespoke accessories have been developed for the Tiger 800 series, including rugged hard and soft luggage solutions, heated grips and tire pressure monitoring sensors.
