6. Triumph Tiger 800XC

Triumph Tiger 800 XC

Tall adventure riders who don’t want the added displacement and weight of some of the larger motorcycles on this list should give the Triumph Tiger 800XC a close look. It’s important to distinguish the XC version over the standard model, as it features a taller, adjustable seat height, beginning at 33.2 inches from the ground up to 34.0 inches at its highest setting. The standard Tiger 800, at its highest seat height, is 32.7 inches.

Opt for the 800XC and you can also expect a slight forward lean of three degrees and a knee bend of 86 degrees, mirroring the Super Tenere. What you’ll also get is one of our favorite engines and exhaust notes in all of motorcycling. It’s a versatile little bike, perfect for any adventure.
