Triumph have revealed a new offering for the global market – the 2014 Tiger 800 XC SE. The UK-based motorcycle giant’s press event at the ongoing 2013 EICMA show had quite a few surprises, with talk about the company’s future growth and plans for emerging markets. However, the 2014 Triumph Tiger 800 XC SE is just a minor cosmetic tweak of its middleweight adventure-tourer. The bright red frame and subtle ‘Volcanic Black’ paint scheme on this special edition offering is eye-catching, especially upon closer inspection, and when the light hits it just right, the red metallic flakes in the black paint pop-out with added dimension. It’s a cleverly lurid effect, and we like it.
Officials present at the event stated that the 2014 Tiger 800 XC SE will cater to the UK market only with the US market also in their fold in the coming months. But this motorcycle has a huge emphasis for our Indian market as well! As you are aware that the British brand are all set to enter the sub-continent in this last quarter, and the Tiger 800 XC is one of the bikes set to be offered from Triumph India’s product portfolio.
