We put the 2016 Triumph Tiger XCX against the classic BMW F800GS to see which is the best middleweight adventure bike.
Both the Tiger XCX and the F800GS have the same specs: a 21 inches front wheel, similar wind protections, similar chassis and electronics. But there is one big difference: the engine. While the #BMW uses the 800 cc parallel twin, the Triumph has a 800 cc inline-three cylinder power plant.
To see what these bikes are capable of, we tested them both on curvy roads and off-road. The Tiger XCX was fitted with Continental TCK 80 tires, while the F800GS’ tires were Michelin Anakee II.
So, which is the best middleweight adventure motorcycle? The new Triumph Tiger XCX or the BMW F800GS. Join us to find out!
