Triumph has revealed four new iterations of the Tiger 800.

The British manufacturer has updated its range with switchable ABS, traction control and Ride by Wire technology available for the first time.

Ride by Wire is a fuel injection system that uses computers to give optimum torque for efficient riding.

The fuel injection arrangement allows for Cruise Control and switchable ABS to be fitted as standard on top-end models.

At the top of the range sits the XRx and XCx, and they both come fitted with the above equipment.

The entry-level models, the XR and XC, have less equipment however the XR model is more focused on road use, while the XC is more inclined and suited to going off road.

The range-topping XRx and XCx models come with three riding modes comprised of road, off road and Programmable Rider mode.

The latter is a fully configurable option which allows riders to select chosen settings regarding the use of ABS and traction control, as well as a choice of four Throttle Maps.

All four models share the same three-cylinder 800cc unit that delivers 94hp and returns an official 65mpg on a mixed use cycle.

In terms of looks, the Tiger 800 has been updated with new housing for the radiator and fuel tank. The new models also have adjustable seats, handlebars and headlight angles.

Prices for the Triumph Tiger 800 range will start from £8,499 when it arrives in the UK in Spring 2015.
