A Well Made Bike ??
As We all know Triumph is well known for its built for safety. and also with it comes great built quality in its products.
Down here is a classic example of the built quality of Triumph. The Bike present here is the Triumph Tiger XR.
The Tiger XR, here in India at 10.5 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The bike is the entry level model to the Tiger series and is considered as more of a road-going adventure tourer.
The bike features a new, technologically advanced ride-by-wire throttle control system which eliminates the usage of mechanical components that perform the same function along with traction control and a height adjustable seat for improved comfort and ride. Power is drawn from an 800cc, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, three-cylinder engine that produces 94bhp and 8.1kgm of torque. The power is transferred to the rear wheel via chain-driven final drive, mated to a six-speed gearbox.
The bike gets a set of 10-spoke, cast aluminium alloy wheels. The front wheel is 19 inches wide, an extra 2 inches on the rear one, to provide good balance for off-roading. Front suspension here is Showa-made 43mm USD forks with 180mm of travel, and the rear receives a Showa monoshock with hydraulically adjustable preload system. Triumph provides twin 308mm disc brakes up front and a single 255mm disc at rear.
Above we can see the built quality of the Triumph Tiger XR. It got hit by a Maruti Suzuki Swift.We can see there is absolutely no damage done to the bike, while on the other hand ; The Swift Front end is mangled badly.
We can have a guess on the built quality of the Triump Tiger and also the Maruti Swift.
Below is a classic example of what happens when a Maruti Suzuki Swift rear ended a Triumph Tiger XR.
