That's got a meaner look to it. I like it. I'm biased.

The Brit board's been rumor-mongering about a move up to a new 900cc engine. I guess not this year.

So no longer an actual low version, just a low seat?

OK, found out the answer.  The low is now the LRH (low ride height).
And the seat has two positions as well to give seat height approx. 31 & 30 in.
I love the look, the colors, the dash and the electronics.  I want ONE!

"The road-loving Tiger 800 XRX 'LRH' is an even more accessible version of this easy-handling bike, and is perfect for touring the world’s highways...

The XRX 'LRH' model comes with an accessible 780 mm seat height which is 50 mm lower than the standard Tiger XRX, and has the adjustable seat set-up which offers another 20 mm reduction to take the lowest seat height setting to 760 mm.

The more responsive Triumph 800 Triple engine, lighter exhaust system, new full-colour TFT instruments and switchgear, new five-position screen, and four riding modes are just a few of the many features designed into this latest generation XRX Low Ride Height model.

I'm not sure the industry needs to start building bigger bikes out of the middle weights-again.  :gerg:
