Triumph has launched the range-topping variant of the Tiger, the XCA, at a price of Rs 13.75 lakh, ex-showroom, Delhi. It is more off-road biased than the other Tigers, and offers a few more features as well.
The Tiger XCA has a higher-capacity 650W alternator to power the standard heated seats (both rider and pillion), heated grips and LED fog lamps. It will be available in a new colour exclusive to it: a khaki green. It will also be available in white, the same colour that is available on the other variants of the Tiger. Pannier rails are also standard, and can be specced with optional Triumph Expedition aluminium panniers.
Among the other things it offers over the regular Tiger range are an additional power socket, a centre stand, new hand guards with improved protection, engine protection bars, an aluminium sump guard, CNC machined rider foot rests, an aluminium radiator guard, and a GPS mounting kit.
There are no other mechanical changes to the Tiger XCA; it has spoked rims but is powered by the same 94 bhp, 800 cc triple that powers the rest of the range, and drive is sent via chain to the rear wheel. It offers the same electronic aids as the XCX – traction control, ABS and throttle maps that help the motorcycle adjust to different road (or off-road) conditions.
