Triumph Motorcycles has officially launched the new Tiger 1200 XCX motorcycle in India. With the brand calling it the most advanced Tiger model ever to hit the streets, this bike has been priced at INR 17 lakh (ex-showroom). This makes it cheaper than the older model, thanks to the drop in taxes on CBU models.

Triumph claims that they have achieved weight savings from the engine, chassis & exhaust components. The new model features over 100 improvements to the old motorcycle delivering better riding dynamics and off-road ability. The engine is slightly more powerful than before and even the ergonomics have been reworked for rider comfort.

New features include adaptive cornering lights, TFT full colour instrument console, all LED lighting, new off-road pro riding mode along with 6 riding modes, backlit switchgear, quickshifter, keyless ignition, updated cruise control, new body work, new cast & spoked wheels, new tank badge & side panels, new graphics and new body colours.
