Triumph Tiger 800 XC – Click above to enlarge

Back in the day, the British were known for being a nation of ready-and-willing explorers, and somewhat similar expressions could be made of their motorcycles. Sadly, Jolly Ole' England's once impressive two-wheeled heritage very nearly vanished as quickly as all those headline-grabbing expeditions to the ends of the Earth.

At least one storied British motorcycling brand hasn't forgotten its heritage, as the revived Triumph has seen fit to launch a new adventure touring mount for 2011 called the Tiger 800. As we've mentioned before, two versions of the machine will be available, one meant for off-road excursions dubbed the XC and one biased for the road.

Triumph has finally let loose an official shot of the Tiger 800 XC, and we generally like what we see. There's a 21-inch front wheel with spokes and knobby tires, bash guards and mud-catching fenders. We also note some accessory parts, including a beefier engine guard and an Arrow exhaust can.
