The new Triumphs were launched at the EICMA show in Milan following on from the Bonneville unveiling at Intermot in Cologne.

To market the four new versions of the Tiger 800, Triumph has used TV survival expert Bear Grylls feature din the video above.

The new Tigers are the XR, XC, XRx and XCx, all with traction control, switchable ABS and Ride by Wire technology.

The XR is road focussed and the XC is aimed at off-road and both come with range-topping “x” models featuring cruise control as standard and three riding modes to control throttle maps, ABS, and traction control.

The XC also now comes with Austrian WP suspension which has made the KTM off-roaders so tough yet complaint over rough terrain.

The three-cylinder engines are now tweaked for substantially better fuel economy, down to 4.3L/100km from 5.1L/100km.

The two cruiser variants are both limited editions like the Bonnevilles.

The Rocket X celebrates 10 years of Rocket, hence the Roman numeral X for 10! It is limited to 500 units and comes with a high-gloss custom paint scheme with “grind” effect stripes and has individually numbered side panels and a billeted aluminium name badge.

Components including the exhaust, handlebars and mirrors have been painted black, along with black wheels with a hand-painted silver pinstripe.

The other special edition cruiser is the Thunderbird Nightstorm which features the Storm’s bigger engine and has been stripped of much of its chrome. It has custom “ghost flames” paint, all-black exhausts, handlebars, mirrors and levers, and a new seat.
