The Tiger 900 is an all-new mid-weight ADV from Triumph, which will replace the Tiger 800. Triumph announced this motorcycle in December 2019 and it seems that the motorcycle will be sold in India too. The upcoming all-new Tiger 900 is expected to be priced between Rs 13 lakh and Rs 16 lakh (ex-showroom).
Internationally, the motorcycle is sold in five versions, namely – 900, 900 GT, 900 GT Pro, 900 Rally and 900 Rally Pro. The GT versions are more road-focused and the Rally versions are more off-road focused. The front design of the Tiger 900 is narrower and more minimalist than the Tiger 800. The Tiger 900 features a new frame, which makes it 5kg lighter.
Triumph Tiger 900 has full LED headlamps – they’re slimmer but retain the indistinguishable look. The base Tiger 900 is featured with a 5-inch TFT whereas all other variants are fitted with a 7-inch TFT display.
Powering the bike is a 888 cc inline-three cylinder engine which has a different “1-3-2” firing order compared to the old 800 cc unit. The new 888 cc engine develops 95 PS of power which is same as the Tiger 800 and 87 NM of torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox that comes with a slip and assist clutch. The new Triumph Tiger 900 tips the scale at 192 kg and is lighter than the older model.
On the GT versions, Marzocchi suspension units are employed. The front USD forks (180mm travel) are compression and rebound adjustable while the rear monoshock (170mm travel) gets preload and rebound adjustability. On the GT Pro variant, the mono shock is electronically adjustable with nine levels of damping and four prefix preload settings with Showa USD (45 mm travel) forks units with manual preload, rebound damping and compression damping adjustment on the front.
The Tiger 900’s Rally versions come with spoked tubeless wheels that are of larger size – 21-inch front and 17-inch rear whereas the Tiger 900 base, GT, and GT Pro feature 19-inch front and 17-inch rear, cast alloy wheels.
