Updated Triumph Tiger 900 Range Is Here! More Ferocious and Frisky

Triumph has unleashed a new 'Tiger' in the form of the updated Tiger 900 series. It can be bought in the Tiger 900 GT and Tiger 900 Rally Pro variants. Yes, just two now. Triumph has made changes in all aspects, from aesthetics to performance. The price of the Tiger 900 GT stands at Rs 13.95 Lakh and Tiger 900 Rally Pro at Rs 15.95 lakh. Let's see what you get at that mammoth price:

How do they Look?

The new Tiger 900 range has a few changes in the styling department hat primarily help the motorcycles look more confident and ready for adventure. These include a redesigned front, instrumentation, and side panels. You can get the Tiger 900 GT in Graphite, Snowdonia White, and Carnival Red. The Tiger 900 Rally Pro has Carbon Black, Ash Grey, and Matt Khaki Green paint shades. The 900 GT looks more suitable for the roads with 19-inch front and 17-inch rear wheels. While the 900 Rally Pro will inspire you to take an off-road trail with its 21-inch front and 17-inch rear spoke wheels. 

What powers it?

The Triumph Tiger 900 draws its power from an inline three-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 888cc engine that produces 106.5bhp of power and 90Nm of torque. This engine is 13 per cent more potent than its predecessor. According to Triumph, this increase, coupled with a T-plane crank and offset firing intervals, ensures better performance across the rev range and up to nine per cent better fuel economy. They have also tweaked the exhaust system heavily to cater to the stringent emission norms.

How are the Features?

The feature list starts with a 7-inch TFT panel that shows all the essential details and connects via Bluetooth. It is the same instrument cluster that can also be found on the Tiger 1200. This screen boasts better graphics and a new menu system. The other star features include heated seats, heated grips, and a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). The new rider seats provide more space as well. Some additional features include optimised cornering ABS and traction control, multiple riding modes, Triumph Shift Assist (only in Rally Pro), illuminated switches, an emergency deceleration warning system and prominent marker lights.

How is the Chassis?

The GT variant rides on Marzocchi adjustable suspension with 45mm USD forks and a rear monoshock unit. The Rally Pro uses Showa suspension with adjustable 45mm front forks and a rear monoshock unit. In terms of travel, the GT variant gets 180mm in front and 170mm in the rear, while the Rally Pro versions come with 240mm in front and 230mm in the rear.
