Good morning. I am a new member here and just about to pick up a 2018 Tiger 800 XCa. I live in Kent, UK. I will also use the bike for commuting - I think it will be ok although it is wider than my current bike, a KTM 1290 Superduke R.

I have an opportunity to purchase the Triumph luggage at a reasonable price used from a member. It was bought for a 2016 model. Does anyone know if the luggage, including the racks and "sliding carriage" will fit my 2018 model?

This is the luggage:https://www.triumphworld.co.uk/buy/triumph-Adventure-Panniers/hjp-a9508184_2016tigerexplorer#eq1

I will use the Triumph luggage for on road tours with a pillion. For the light offroad riding I am planning to I will use soft luggage.

I'd appreciate your advice.

I fitted luggage frames from my 2013 Roadie to my new 2018 XrX , no issues, rear mounting points still the same..

Yes will fit as I also fitted the luggage racks and Triumph boxes. As for the top box I bought the latest Givi top box and the Triumph rack thinking they're compatible and found out there not, even though they look very similar. The box does not lock into position but I was able to drill new holes for the locking catch and bolt back into the required place.
