2018 Triumph 800 Features & Changes

  • More than 200 upgrades to the engine and chassis
  • More responsive Triple engine
  • The 1st gear has been made shorter for enhanced off-road, low speed manoeuvrability.
  • The exhaust is lighter and free-flowing and the exhaust sound is claimed to be improved.
  • Five position adjustable screen.
  • Adjustable full colour TFT cluster
  • All-LED lighting, backlit switchgear
  • Updated cruise control
  • New “Off road pro” riding mode for the most focussed off-road set-up.

XR is the entry level variant and along with the XRx, they form the road-biased versions. The XCx, on the other hand, is the more off-road friendly version on offer. The 800 cc motor continues to produce the same 95 PS of peak power and 79 Nm of max torque but the gearing has been altered for more torque down the range and they say the motor is now smoother.
