Triumph Tiger 800 ABS 2014

Practicality has many faces, and the Tiger 800 shows at least two. First, the very nature of an adventure bike is as a do-anything, wide-focus machine; the Tiger 800 complies, with a fully upright riding position, an adjustable-height seat (and an optional lower saddle), standard windshield, and practical racks out back. Second, the 800 tosses aside the idea that adventure comes in liter-sized doses only; the liquid-cooled triple provides ample horsepower (94 at 9,300 rpm) without the substantial heft of Triumph’s bigger adventure bikes.
