This is the maintenance schedule with associated service intervals for the Triumph Tiger 800 XRx motorcycles.

It’s very similar to those for other motorcycles with similar engines in the Triumph Tiger 800 series, like the Triumph 800 XR. The XRx is the same as the XR, after all, but with a smaller “x” that brings with it riding modes, a full-colour TFT display, and new switch-gear.

This maintenance schedule applies to the following model:

  • 2018 Triumph Tiger 800 XRx
  • 2019 Triumph Tiger 800 XRx

After 2019, Triumph released the Tiger 900 series (in 2020).
