General information about the Triumph Tiger XCa
The distinctive style of the Tiger XCa is in full effect, and it starts out with its rather unique front end. New for this generation are dual premium Brembo calipers up front that bite 305 mm discs with a 255 mm disc and single-piston Nissin anchor out back. Both ends benefit from switchable ABS. In addition to the laced wheels that are preferred by off-road riders, the suspension is geared toward rough terrain with 8.66 inches of travel in the 43 mm, usd front forks and 8.46 inches of travel from the WP monoshock that tames the rear wheel. This mass-optimized triple is built to spool up even faster than its predecessor with a total of 95 ponies and 58 pounds o’ grunt on tap that max out at 9,500 rpm and 8,050 rpm, respectively.
