That was quick! Less than a month since they were first showcased at the India Bike Week, Triumph has launched the 2015 Tiger XRx and XCx in India and the manufacturer will also bring out the 2015 Tiger XR sometime later. The company believes that the adventure and off-road category in premium motorcycles has seen a huge surge of demand in the past few months and expects that these two new bikes will cater to the need.
Powering the two bikes is the second generation 800 cc liquid cooled in-line three cylinder mill which produces 95 PS of maximum power at 9,250 rpm and 79 Nm of peak torque at 7,850 rpm.
Triumph tells us that the engine has been tuned to increase efficiency and make the motorcycle more agile for improved touring ability. They also say that the engine noise has been reduced and it gets a lighter and more precise gear change mechanism thanks to the inspiration gained from the Daytona 675 which has also helped in improved heat management and enhanced fuel combustion efficiency.
Both the bikes get a host of rider focused technology. Apart from switchable ABS, traction control with 3 riding modes, cruise control (first in the segment), the Tigers get ride by wire which helps in improving the control over the engine, smooth power delivery with a slight blip of the throttle and reduces emissions.

It also gets four different throttle maps:
- Rain map: reduces the throttle response and suit wet and slippery situations
- Road map: represents the standard map, linear and smooth, suiting everyday conditions
- Sport map: for sharper and quicker response with less throttle twist
- Off-Road map: optimal throttle response for dirt tracks and unpaved terrains, i.e. off-road attitude
The tubular steel trellis frame gets a titanium powder coat. The XRx gets Showa front suspension with 43mm USD fork with the rear monoshock suspension with a travel of 170 mm. The XCx gets WP suspension with 215 mm rear wheel travel!
The bikes have a 19 Liter fuel tank and gets adjustable rider seat height and handlebar position. You even get to charge your gadgets while on the go with an extra auxiliary 12 V power socket near the ignition key slot.
