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.

The big R 1200 GS Adventure may have been the ultimate long-distance adventure bike up to now, but anyone who also values a bit of fun and sport is certainly better served by the F 800 GS Adventure.
