Triumph has with the three-cylinder mid Enduro Tiger 800 XC an all-rounder in the program, which focuses on asphalt as loose turf is suitable for long and short trips as well as for the everyday way through the urban jungle. Their qualities, but also their reliability and durability, the Tiger 800 XC had to ask for a duration test of the magazine MOTORCYCLE proof. The stress of 50,000 hard test miles mastered the 800 with flying colors.

"Whether niedertourig purring in enjoyment mode or aggressive hisses to attack, the 94-hp three-cylinder turned out to be almost as a universal genius."
That the Triumph Tiger Mäkinen the endurance test distance in just 15 months, is for Mayer "a value that says a lot about the popularity and frequency of claims and the little cat so that heaves to the level of the mile-eating touring and high-capacity enduros in the long-term test fleet."
At the end of the term, the journalists took before not only a comparison measurement of engine power and compression, rather they disassembled the bike into its component parts in order to search for possible signs of wear at all offal. To make it short: Here, too, the triumph hit with flying colors.
