2012 Tiger 800 with only 7,700 miles. I am the adult owner from 0 miles. All services done, running full synthetic. Tires, chain and sprockets still have tons of life in them. Chain lubed after every 300+ miles, cleaned every 1,000+ miles. Brilliant street bike capable of doing hundreds of miles a day with no problem at all. Comfortable seat (2 height settings) makes highway droning a breeze but also has a nice shape to move around a bit in the twisties. Upright handlebars for great leverage in the canyon with no wrist/back/shoulder pain. Added the XC bar risers for a slightly higher handlebar, aftermarket adjustable clutch/brake levers, bar ends, engine guards, rear stand spools, EBC HH front pads, headlight protector, rear Preload adjuster knob. Could be ridden to Alaska tomorrow, 100% ready to ride. I have a toxic green tank and front fender, so if you would prefer green instead of black we can make that happen. On the street, where, in my opinion, 500-pound motorcycles belong, these Triumphs are difficult to fault. The base 800, thanks to its being lower, is able to transition from side to side quicker than the XC. Both bikes, though, cling to dirty back roads like Spaghetti-Os to your microwave ceiling (not that I ever rode mine in the dirt, I have a dirt bike for that, just some construction and fire roads when required). The wide bars and sit-up ergos beg you to push them down into the pavement like dirt bikes, and there’s something Ducati-esque about the Tiger’s steel frame that seems to torque the contact patches into the pavement when the Tiger’s leaned over hard and your boot edges scrape. In street use, the Tiger feels a bit more firm and planted than the BMW F800GS. What the bigger 800 Triple (stroked 9.6mm to 61.9) gives up to the revvier 675 (on which it is based) in peak power, it makes up for in an extremely broad midrange. Like all the Triumph Triple gearboxes lately, the Tiger’s might be the nicest-shifting six-speed in production. Sixth is good for the long drone home, about 14 mph per 1000 rpm, a nice 83-mph cruise at 6000 rpm. And the windshield pokes a nice torso-sized hole in the air. At right around 40 mpg, you’re looking at 200 miles between 5-gallon fill-ups and just go ahead and remain seated between stops: There were no pressure points on my posterior, at least, from the supportive, not-too-cushy saddle.
