Triumph had initially planned to bring in the Triumph Tiger 900 in April, but the ongoing lockdown has forced it to delay the bike by a month. The new Tiger 900 will be brought into India as a CKD.
The Triumph Tiger 900, which will replace the celebrated Triumph Tiger 800 from the British motorcycle manufacturer’s portfolio, will be the brand new entry-level adventure Triumph bike in the country.
Though it is globally offered in three different avatars, i.e. Base, Rally, and GT, Triumph Motorcycles will offer only the GT and Rally iterations in India
With the 900, the XR and XC variant nomenclature has been replaced by GT and Rally. Both come in Standard and Pro trims. Aside from the variant names, there’s a lot that is new in the Triumph Tiger 900.
For starters, it gets a new 888cc three-cylinder liquid-cooled motor that now produces 92.6bhp and 87Nm, and it is lighter than the old unit by 2.5kg.
To improve the low-end performance, the firing order has also been changed to 1-3-2. Although reasonably well equipped at the time of launch, the Triumph Tiger 800’s electronics package was starting to feel a bit outdated.
The new offering gets cornering ABS, bi-directional quick-shifter, rider modes, and more. The Rally Pro trim will also feature an off-road-focused mode that will switch off ABS and traction control.
The motorcycle will, of course, come loaded with a world of features, including a segment-leading seven-inch TFT instrument panel that will offer four different user interfaces, Bluetooth connectivity, and access to the My Triumph connectivity system with dedicated GoPro controls among other things.
How much The Triumph Tiger 900 will Cost
And unlike what the company did with the new Triumph Street Triple RS‘s price, we suspect the Triumph Tiger 900‘s price in India will be higher than its predecessor Tiger 800.
