Pre-bookings of the all-new Triumph Tiger 900 have commenced at a minimum booking amount of Rs 50,000. The middle-weight ADV will only go on sale in three variants – Rally Pro, Rally and GT
After releasing a few teaser images of the upcoming Tiger 900, Triumph has commenced accepting bookings. A pre-launch booking can be made by paying a minimum amount of Rs 50,000. Triumph has still not announced an official launch date, but we expect it to be around the corner.
The Triumph Tiger 900 is not a face-lift or mid-life update, its an all-new model. Form the chassis, engine, suspension components to the design, everything is new. Underneath that body is a new 888cc three-pot motor that develops 92.6bhp and 87Nm. Unlike the one on the Tiger 800, this new motor has a firing order of 1-3-2 which ensures better low-end grunt. The engine and the motorcycle itself are now considerably lighter too – something that is also apparent from its chiselled design cues. The Tiger 900 now looks like it has gone through a stringent fitness regime – it is now sleeker and edgier than before. Up front it gets all new headlamps that are considerably smaller than before. The shape of the fuel tank, the panels along the side as well as the exhaust are all new.
Triumph has also loaded the Tiger 900 with a lot of new tech. The ADV now gets new 7.0-inch TFT colour display that connect with Bluetooth and offers turn-by-turn navigation. The Tiger 900 also comes with cornering ABS, vi-directional quickshifter, riding modes and more. In the off-road biased Rally Pro variant, riders also have the option to switch off ABS and Traction control completely.
Expect the Triumph Tiger 900 to demand a premium over the outgoing model and priced starting Rs 13 lakh. The Tiger 900 will compete against the likes of the Ducati Multistrada 950, BMW F 850 GS, Kawasaki Versys 1000 and the likes.
