Triumph Tiger 800 XRT 2019

The Tiger 800 XRt is not only the slightly more road-oriented top model in the Tiger 800 range, it is also the best-selling model - and that could well remain the case with the new model. With a 19-inch front wheel and off-road mode, off-road excursions are no problem, while road riding and long journeys are sweetened with an incredible amount of luxury. In addition to cautious visual retouching, there is now a very easy height-adjustable windshield and 5 riding modes. Full LED lighting and a backlit control unit. Cleverly, the top models XRt and XCa are given the full LED lighting, the backlit control unit as well as heated grips and seats exclusively along the way.

The smaller of the two F GS sisters, the F 700 GS convinces with a successful overall performance. It looks like its big sister, but at its core it is more of a lively naked bike than a big enduro. The fact that the bike has outgrown the entry-level segment can be seen in the braking system - with two brake discs at the front, it is on a par with its big 800 sister and now decelerates just as confidently. In terms of the chassis, it convinces with good suspension comfort and at the same time a firm set-up in tight bends. Upgrading is never a problem with BMW; in addition to traction control, there is also the electronic suspension ESA for the F 700 GS.
