Triumph has just launched its 5th model in the Tiger line-up, XCA, also the 15th model in the entire Indian portfolio. The new Tiger comes with more off-road prowess and safety electronics to ford the most difficult terrain you throw at it. The XCA focuses on increased rider comfort and comes with heated rider and passenger seats and heated grips for cold weather riding. LED fog lamps increase visibility through fog and looks good as well. The excellent 800cc triple puts out 93.7bhp of maximum power and 79Nm of peak torque at a low 7,850rpm. Triumph engineers have tweaked and improved the efficiency by 17 percent giving you an estimated range of 435km on a tank.
The host of riders support electronics like Traction Control, ABS braking, 4 throttle maps and 3 riding modes adjust to individual riders and most can be changed on the fly. Another new addition is cruise control for more ease on long highways and to enhance efficiency. Throttle maps can be chosen between Rain, Road, Sport or Off-Road for more grip on diverse surfaces.
Vimal Sumbly, Managing Director, Triumph Motorcycles India states, “Triumph Motorcycles India is one of the fastest growing premium motorcycle brands in the country, and we would like to thank our dedicated riders for believing in us. Tiger marked its entry creating a new adventure category and now we proudly own nearly 97 percent share in this particular segment.
