Price hike

But all that extra tech and features comes at a price hike:

MODEL 2017 price 2018 price increase
Tiger 800 XRX & XRX LOW $17,100 $18,550 $1450
 Tiger 800 XCX $18,150 $19,650 $1500
Tiger 800 XRT $18,350 $20,700 $2350
 Tiger 800 XCA $19,950 $21,300 $1350

Adventure bikes seem to have as much if not more tech than sports bikes these days.

And you have to wonder when there is too much tech on an adventure bike.

Perhaps Triumph should consider a stripped-down model to keep novice and budget adventure riders happy.

Here are the details on each new model.
