General information about the Triumph Tiger XRt

The main structure and subframe of the Tiger XRt are made from tubular-steel members in a Trellis format for the strength and rigidity it offers while leaving plenty of room for the innards. New ten-spoke, cast-aluminum rims round out the rolling chassis with a 19-inch wheel up front opposite a 17-inch wheel out back, and this new gen runs with Metzeler Tourance tires in a 100/90 and 150/70 on the front and rear, respectively. In the rear, Showa makes another showing with its preload-adjustable monoshock that turns in 6.69 inches (170 mm) of travel. As for the brakes, Brembo delivers the goods with dual 305 mm discs and twin-pot anchors to slow the front wheel and a 255 mm disc and single-piston caliper out back, all under the protection of the switchable ABS feature.
