What goes quickly must also stop quickly and to shed speed the Triumph Tiger 800 gets a pair of 308-mm dia floating discs with Nissin two-piston sliding callipers up front and a 255-mm dia disc with Nissin single-piston sliding calliper at the rear. Of course, there’s ABS as well to sort out slippery issues. There’s plenty of bite but the feel is ever so slightly spongy. In any case, the brakes work perfectly to help you shed speed without drama.
In Pune, the on-road price of the Tiger 800 XRx is Rs 12.98 lakh. At that price there is no other adventure tourer that money can buy. Admittedly, the other adventure tourers sport larger capacity engines, but even amongst the more powerful bikes, the Triumph Tiger 800 XRx will hold its own and won’t leave you feeling short-changed.
