Customers of MY2017-19 Triumph Street Triple RS and MY2018-19 Tiger 800 models will now have an option to retrofit the company's 'My Triumph' connectivity system on their motorcycles.
Owners of the previous model year Triumph Street Triple RS and Tiger 800 models with TFT instrumentation will now have the option to retrofit ‘My Triumph Connectivity System’ to their motorcycles. The feature will be made available from December 21, 2020, and will add turn-by-turn navigation, GoPro controls, music and phone operation, and bike status monitoring features.
To use the new features, customers will have to download ‘My Triumph’ App on their smartphone – it’s available for free on both iOS and Android app stores. This will be paired with an accessory called ‘My Triumph Connectivity Module’, which is offered as a retrofit package to the existing TFT. The app and module connect wirelessly through Bluetooth. The system will bring on-board turn-by-turn navigation to the motorcycle by presenting the info on the TFT screen itself. Additionally, there’s a built-in what3words functionality, which can be used to navigate to an exact 3-metre square location anywhere in the world, claims Triumph.
The same system will also allow the owners of the old Triple RS and Tiger 800 customers to use Triumph’s integrated motorcycle GoPro control system, which we recently saw in the all-new Tiger 900. Similarly, phone and music operation are also available. The ‘My Garage’ feature in the app can be used to get key information, including odometer reading, average fuel consumption, and time/distance to service.
The My Triumph Connectivity System retrofit package will be available for MY2017-19 Street Triple RS and MY2018-19 Tiger 800 XRX, XCX, XCA. The same package will also be offered with the Tiger 1200, but it’ll be launched in 2021.
