The Tiger Boxer 200 is probably one of the biggest mysteries in the Thai motorcycle market. Not much information is available about the Tiger Boxer 200, which on its own is not a bad bike at all. The Tiger Boxer 200 was developed with the help of Italian sporty motorcycle manufacture Cagiva Motors, and for a short moment also marketed in Southeast Asia as the Cagiva F4.
The Tiger Boxer 200 is powered by a single cylinder, 4-stroke, 4-valve, SOHC, air-cooled, 198.19cc engine, with a relative large 69mm bore and 53mm stroke the engine produces a compression ratio of 9.2:1. The transmission of the Tiger is a constant mesh 5-gear transmission, with a manual, multi-disc wet clutch. CDI Magneto ignition system similar to what can be found on Cagiva bikes. It is clear that the Tiger Boxer 200 was never designed to deliver sportbike performance, not that the bike is slow. Remember the Italians designed the Boxer, and Cagiva did never made a slow bike. Comparing the Boxer to popular bikes on the Thai market, the Honda CBR150R and the Suzuki Raider 150R, we can say that the Tiger has no problems keeping up with its popular road buddies. At higher speeds, plus 140km/h, the heavier Tiger Boxer seems to be more stable. Also the 200cc engine produces much less rpm's to equal the power produced by its 150cc competitors. The Bangkok City Administration selected this bike for the Bangkok Traffic Police, for offering excellent road handling and the ability to out-perform nearly all motorcycles on the market.
The frame and suspension is relative simple, the frame is made of high-tensile steel pipes and box sections, with a rear aluminum swingarm with dual oil-coil-spring shocks. The front suspension is a regular telescopic fork.
