According to an official bulletin sent to American Triumph dealers this afternoon (and included above), the Triumph Tiger 800 will start at just $9,999, going up to $11,799 for an ABS-equipped Triumph Tiger 800 XC. That’s substantially cheaper than a BMW F800GS, which starts at $11,455 and runs to $12,900 if you want ABS.
We reached out to Triumph USA for confirmation, but they only told us, “Wes we will confirm pricing on monday morning.”
The pricing settles the question as to what unique value the new Tiger adds to the mid-capacity adventure touring market. We were initially concerned by how close it is to the F800GS both in looks and specs, instead Triumph plans to compete with the Germans by undercutting them substantially.
