You just need to keep your balance perfect and the tiger takes you places. And that’s exactly what our Triumph Tiger Rally Pro did. The Triumph Tiger 900 comes in 3 trim levels and these are the Tiger 900 GT, Tiger 900 Rally and Tiger Rally Pro. Prices start from Rs 13.70 lakh and goes up to Rs 15.50 lakh ex-showroom for the Rally Pro.

For starters, how different is it from its predecessor, the Tiger 800? A lot is what I feel. It is 5kgs lighter as a result of new lightweight modular frame, new lighter-weight engine, high specification suspension and premium Brembo brakes. The bike gets a tubular steel frame with a bolt-on rear sub-frame and pillion hangers.

The balance is great, ensuring even greater handling in all riding scenarios. The centre of gravity of the bike has been revised, moving 40mm forward and 20mm down compared with the predecessor Tiger 800.

STYLE & FEATURES

The new Tiger 900 Rally Pro has an all-new aggressive styling. The adventure stance is supported by the narrow stand over width, the front end looks a bit narrow and the fuel tank design and size looks large. You get a large 20 litre fuel tank for long-distance touring. Other body parts that have been reworked include tank end panel, high mudguard, seat panel, radiator cowl and radiator duct exit.

The Tiger 900 Rally Pro is available in Pure White, Sapphire Black and Matt Khaki colours.

Let’s check out what all is new here. We get a new 7 inches TFT instrument. There are also four different colour options to choose from and high/low contrast versions for good visibility in all lights. The 7” TFT screen is now bonded to the glass for a crisper image, with no reflective layer.
