General information about the Triumph Tiger XRt

Dual headlights ride in the wide fairing with all-LED lighting that includes a set of DRLs plus an Adaptive Cornering Lighting feature. The 5.2-gallon fuel tank dominates the flyline to give the Tiger its adventure-tastic profile with a deep-scoop seat (also heated) and rise to the pillion pad that puts the pilot in the bike as much as on it. Cast-aluminum blackout rims roll with a 120/70-19 hoop up front and a 170/60-17 out back to round out the rolling chassis. The brakes are equally top-shelf with a set of dual, 305 mm discs and four-pot Brembo binders to slow the front wheel and a 282 mm disc with a twin-piston anchor out back and Triumph’s angle-sensitive ABS feature.
