Triumph Tiger 800 XC 2014

I like the Tiger 800 XC not only on the road for my daily commute to work. It is a very uncomplicated vehicle which, thanks to the powerful and lively engine, is not only very useful but also a lot of fun. On the racetrack, I actually only used the vehicle for my instructor work. But I couldn't help it and had to take to the track once in the faster group. The high-quality chassis and the agile engine were a joy to ride and the Tiger 800 XC is THE universal talent par excellence for me.

Fully equipped with special equipment from Touratech, the BMW looked very imposing and gave the impression of a real, masculine adventurer's motorbike. Headlight grille, engine guard, grippy, wider footrests, and much more hopefully deceived many eyewitnesses about the same-sex partnership on the breathable comfort seat.
