Factory Low version?
« on: December 10, 2019, 09:11:22 PM »
When did Triumph start producing the low version of the street Tiger. I am in the market for one for my wife.


Thanks,
Looking in Texas.

I believe that it was an option with the 2015 model refresh

They brought out an official LOW model of the XRX, I think in 2015 , not sure if they did a low version of the earlier "roadie".

I have short legs, but ride the standard XRX but with the Low comfort seat. Think the seat height is 790mm. It is still a very comfy ride.

If that would work for your wife then it would probably give you a lot more choice in second hand bikes.

Another advantage is that you can still have a centre stand where's with the Low you can't. Also, the Low version lowers the whole bike, so from comments I've seen is very easy to ground pegs on cornering.... not that the standard one isn't too...   😁

I have just lowered my 800 ABS using drop links obtained from ebay for 20.00. At 5.5 feet tall I can now flat foot at stand still. I adjusted the side stand using a 2mm washer under the bottom fixing to increase the lean and I carry a 20mm thick board under the seat in case I need to use the centre stand. All in all a good job done, all with information from the Forum. Well pleased   https://www.tiger800.co.uk/Smileys/tiger/046.gif

I had the Gen 2 XRX low version but it lacked the bells and whistles of the XRT. Now I have a gen3 XRT (with all the bells and whistles) with 40mm lowering links and the Insurance company have screwed me because its a suspension modification.
MAD!!

That was unfortunate with your insurance company, I checked with mine [Bennetts] and there was no extra cost for the mod, but there was a fee for alterations to the policy
