Return to Biking
« on: January 05, 2021, 04:27:08 PM »
Hi,

having sold my Tiger 800 six years ago to start road cycling ( I know mad  :001:) I am looking to return to the scene.
I am looking at the latest Tiger 800 XCA 2018 - 2019.

My question is I see a few of these in marine blue 2017 so is this the year that they came out?

Also due to these lock downs I cannot see any in the flesh so what colour looks best? ..thanks.

If it's the same as the one on the cover of the current Nacelle magazine, yes it does  :028:

Yes, I have a 2018 model XCA which was first registered in 2017.
The 2018 models were released in November 2017 and have the full LCD instrument display and LED lights & indicators.
Which colour is best? I say marine blue but thats just mine is  :062:

One other thing I would say about the Marine Blue is that its not blue, blue.
Its a sort of semi mat metallic Blue-Green and, depending on the light, looks at times more green then blue and at other times more blue than green.
A curious colour but I like it! :001:

Agreed. Shame Triumph didn't offer this colour on the 900, I would have bought one...............
