2018 Payload Specs...is this correct??
« on: February 14, 2018, 09:49:26 AM »
I went to the Triumph website and downloaded the owners handbook. I selected All New Tiger 800 and noticed the payload for the 800s is 324 lbs (147 kg).

I'm hoping this is a typo, how can you ride 2 up with luggage with these numbers?  :110:

As a comparison the 1200s are near the 500 lb. (225 kg) range. The payload numbers for other years are much higher as well. Thoughts?

Nevermind 2 up, I'm not far off that now on my own. :084:  Off to bike show Friday, will try to corner a Triumph person to ask.

Quite possibly the 800 low XRX version and Triumph have stated it for all models?
Bikes previous: NSU Quickly moped; Honda C50; Honda 305 scrambler; Yamaha RD350 (x2); Suzuki 380; Honda NX250; Harley Sportster 1200; Yamaha TDM900; Yamaha 1300 cruiser; Honda CB600F5 Hornet;
FJR1300 (x2); Triumph Explorer.

Bikes now: Triumph Tiger 800XRT - one bike less than optimum!

Nah.  Just Triumph's way of being politically correct.   :156:

... and noticed the payload for the 800s is 324 lbs (147 kg).

I'm hoping this is a typo, ...

I reckon it is, seems not only are the bikes built in Thailand but the manuals probably written there as well judging by the errors.
My downloaded copy 06.2015 has the following: .....

Maximum Payload. . . . . . . .  222 kg (489 lb) -      220 kg (485 lb) -
                                           Tiger XR                   Tiger XC

                                           219 kg (308 lb) -      217 kg (478 lb) -
                                           Tiger XRX                 Tiger XCX

                                           140 kg (308 lb) -      221 kg (487 lb) -
                                           Tiger XRX-LRH          Tiger XCX-LRH

                                           213 kg (469 lb) -      210 kg (463 lb) -
                                           Tiger XRT                 Tiger XCA

.... however my 02.2015 hard copy supplied with my bike has:

Maximum Payload. . . . . . . .  222 kg (489 lb) -      220 kg (485 lb) -
                                           Tiger XR                   Tiger XC

                                           219 kg (483 lb) -      217 kg (478 lb) -
                                           Tiger XRX                 Tiger XCX

                                           223 kg (492 lb) -      221 kg (487 lb) -
                                           Tiger XRX-LRH          Tiger XCX-LRH                       

                                           213 kg (469 lb) -      210 kg (463 lb) -
                                           Tiger XRT                 Tiger XCA

                                           :211: :148:

I remember checking this out for a (Lady) friend a couple of years ago, and found the XR low version had a 140kg load weight. eg 1 fat bastid, 2 skinny feckas or 1 average person with luggage. The dealer sales manager was not aware of this.

Because it's been lowered it'll ground out on bends with more than the given load.


I don't know about the XC, didn't check that, being taller it could well cope with a tad more.

Prior to joining the forum, I sent an inquiry to Triumph last week regarding this exact topic.

The pdf owners manual downloaded from the Triumph USA site lists the payload spec for the 2018 XRT at 469lbs. When I picked up my bike, the hard copy lists the same spec at 324lbs.

 Ill post Triumphs answer when/if I hear back.

There are numerous threads about the XRX Low load limits going back to 2015 when it was released. The issue has been raised regularly.

The sales manager at Staff's Triumph got on the phone to check it out after I mentioned it to him.

It's a tad odd that we have different info' in our hard copies, to avoid any chance of error I thought a pic might help. This is from the handbook supplied with my 2016 800 XRx.
