Triumph have revealed two new Tiger 800 models which will now increase their Tiger range to a total of six models. Triumph are now marketing these motorbikes as top of the range motorcycles in the Tiger family and they have been named the 'XRT' and the 'XCA'. The new models will add in equipment and paint designs that other Tiger units don't and the paint work designs in question are a new Orange design for the 'XRT' model and a new Green paint scheme for the 'XCA'. It's not hard to see why these two are going to be the big range toppers as they offer some great additional features such as heated grips,heated seating for both the rider and the passenger,LED headlights which are only available for the 'XCA' model, a tyre pressure monitoring system and the likes of a new radiator guard made from aluminium. With items like these brought into play, the new models could be the most popular in the range and could be that fresh update needed to keep Triumph on top of their game.
