Triumph Tiger 900

Adventure motorcycle enthusiasts in India, rejoice! Triumph Motorcycles has launched the much-anticipated 2024 Tiger 900 range, offering two distinct flavors for your riding pleasure: the road-focused Tiger 900 GT and the off-road-conquering Tiger 900 Rally Pro.

Starting at Rs 13.95 lakh (ex-showroom) for the GT and Rs 15.95 lakh (ex-showroom) for the Rally Pro, both variants boast a powerful engine, modern features, and a rugged design that’s ready to tackle any terrain.

Built to Conquer: Design and Performance

The 2024 Tiger 900 series features a muscular stance that exudes power and purpose. Whether you’re carving corners on the tarmac or navigating challenging trails, these bikes are up for the adventure. The Rally Pro takes off-road prowess a step further with its specialized equipment.

For 2024, Triumph has incorporated several improvements:

  • Enhanced Cooling: Revised bodywork on the sides facilitates better heat dissipation, keeping your engine running cool.
  • Improved Comfort: A slightly extended front beak, revamped seat cushions, and revised ergonomics with a repositioned handlebar enhance comfort for extended rides.
  • Striking Looks: The Rally Pro comes in three color options – Carbon Black, Ash Grey, and Matt Khaki Green – while the GT offers Graphite, Snowdonia White, and Carnival Red.

Power at Your Command

The heart of the Tiger 900 is a potent 888cc, inline three-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that churns out 106.5bhp at 9,500rpm and 90Nm of peak torque at 6,850rpm. This energetic beast is mated to a smooth-shifting six-speed gearbox with a slip-and-assist clutch for better control. For the Rally Pro rider, gear changes are a breeze with the quickshifter.

Technology for the Modern Explorer

Both Tiger 900 models are loaded with advanced technology to enhance your ride:

  • Crystal Clear Display: A 7-inch TFT instrument cluster displays all vital information, while My Triumph Connectivity keeps you connected with call and SMS alerts, turn-by-turn navigation (perfect for those off-the-beaten-path adventures!), and more.
  • Safety First: Cornering ABS, traction control, and emergency braking warning lights ensure optimal safety on the road. Premium features like all-LED lighting enhance visibility in low-light conditions.

Rally Pro: Where Adventure Gets Serious

The Tiger 900 Rally Pro takes things a step further with additional features designed to dominate off-road terrain:

  • Comprehensive Ride Modes: Six ride modes – Road, Rain, Sport, Rider Configurable, Off-Road, and Off-Road Pro – allow you to adapt to any riding condition.
  • Enhanced Control: Illuminated switches, a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS), and a center stand provide added convenience and control. Engine protection guards offer peace of mind when tackling tough obstacles.

Suspension and Wheels Built for the Journey

The choice between the GT and Rally Pro comes down to your riding style:

  • Road-Focused GT: Marzocchi forks with 180mm travel and a Marzocchi monoshock with 170mm travel provide a comfortable ride on tarmac. 19-inch front and 17-inch rear cast aluminum wheels wrapped in Metzeler TouranceTM Next tires offer a good balance of on-road performance and light off-road capability.
  • Off-Road Ready Rally Pro: Showa suspension with significantly higher travel (240mm front and 230mm rear) soaks up bumps and jumps with ease. Spoked wheels with a 21-inch front and 17-inch rear setup shod in Bridgestone Battlax Adventure tires provide superior off-road grip and durability.

The Competition: A Worthy Contender

The Tiger 900 range enters a competitive segment, facing established players like the BMW 850GS, Honda Africa Twin, and Suzuki V-Strom 800DE. With its powerful engine, modern features, and distinct on-road/off-road personalities, the 2024 Tiger 900 is sure to be a strong contender in the adventure motorcycle market.

So, which Tiger 900 will you choose for your next adventure?
