Triumph Motorcycles has officially unveiled the new Triumph Tiger 900 at a special event at the Triumph factory in Hinckley, UK. The new Tiger 900 features an all-new 900 cc, in-line three-cylinder Euro 5-compliant engine, new full-colour TFT instrument console, riding modes and heavily updated design. Instead of the XR and XC range of the outgoing Tiger 800 range, the new Tiger 900 range is broadly divided into three variants with a Tiger 900 Rally with off-road adventure capability, Tiger 900 GT with touring and mild off-road capability, and a base Tiger 900 model. Both the Rally and GT models also feature a top-spec Pro variant which has more features and capability.
All variants come with top-spec Brembo stylema four-piston Monobloc calipers. A new steel trellis frame with bolt-on aluminium subframe also makes the new Tiger 900 lighter than the Tiger 800, with dry weight of 192 kg for the base Tiger 900, 194 kg for the Tiger 900 GT, and 196 kg for the Tiger 900 Rally. Prices for the base Tiger 900 begin at GBP 9,500 (around ₹ 8.85 lakh). The new Tiger 900 range will be launched sometime in the second quarter of 2020 in India, and we expect prices to remain in the ballpark of the existing Tiger 800 models, with possibly the Pro variants at a premium.
