The new Triumph Tiger 900 comes in choice of finishes. The one we like is the ‘Rally Pro’. For the seat height there is a choice of either 870mm or 850mm, as well as a suite of electronic rider aids. This new bike was developed with a wider set of bars and a bigger set of rider pegs that sit just that little bit further back. This allows the rider to ride standing up with a more neutral and therefore more comfortable stance. Once off the paved roads and onto the looser surfaces, this is a bike that just gets even better.
The new motor is still a triple. Now the firing sequence has been changed thanks to a new crank. Its chassis has been reworked with better ground clearance. The gearing is improved and practical things such as taking off from the lights as well as rolling over-takes are much more comfortable. The screen is a TFT affair and while there are a number of rider modes to choose from. Heated grips and a phone charger come as standard as does ABS, tyre pressure monitoring, engine bars and a sump protector. The ability to up spec is huge.
