Triumph Tiger 900 teased, to be unveiled on December 3
Triumph is all set to add a more powerful 900cc variant to its Tiger range of motorcycles. In the latest update, the British automaker has posted a teaser video, confirming that the new model will be launched on December 3. The teaser also reveals that it will be offered in two variants: long-distance tourer GT and off-road-oriented Rally. Here's our roundup.
Going by the teaser, the Tiger 900 will feature a naked street design with a tall windshield, golden-colored front forks, a rear pannier rack, and an upswept exhaust. The teaser also highlights the presence of dual-LED headlamps, wing-shaped DRLs, and blacked-out rearview mirrors. Apart from that, the Rally variant is likely to get knobby tires for improved grip on rough terrains.
The company has not revealed the mechanical specifications and power figures of the Tiger 900 yet. However, according to reports, the motorcycle is expected to pack a Euro 5-compliant engine which will churn out over 110PS of power.
On the safety front, Triumph Tiger 900 is expected to offer disc brakes on both the wheels, along with dual-channel ABS as standard. The motorcycle is also likely to get rider-friendly electronic aids such as IMU-based cornering traction control, riding modes, and cornering ABS. To handle suspension duties, it will house telescopic forks up front and a monoshock unit on the rear.
There is no word on the availability of Tiger 900 in India yet. However, reports suggest that the British automaker might bring the flagship motorcycle to our shores sometime in mid-2020. Once launched, it will directly rival against Ducati Multistrada 950 adventure bike.
