The chassis with its 240 mm suspension travel at the front and 230 mm at the rear swallows almost everything that lies or stands in front of the wheels.

The 900 still hisses, but this hissing turns into an almost twin-like, grumpy coo at higher speeds.

Enduro with sharpened claws

With the brand new 900 Tiger, the British want to really stir up the travel enduro midfield. Her aggressive cat’s baptism of fire was now taking place in Africa.

M.arokko. February 2020. Donkeys that are pegged on and eat in a circle, stony slopes, people sheathed in colorful clothing, huts that are secured like fortresses. Five degrees early in the morning. 26 degrees during the day. Right in the middle of it all is the new Triumph Tiger, which the British want to sell in a total of five versions. First contact in the middle of the desert. Ignition key in, tank full to the brim. Let’s go! Leap of thought.

Attack on the middle class competition

As early as December, the British let their new cat out of the bag, at least in terms of the key data: Newly designed frame with screwed-on aluminum rear. Completely redesigned engine, which has nothing in common with the three-cylinder of the previous model – both the crank pin offset and the firing order have been changed. And then this equipment list! Reads like from a Star Wars movie. In the two Pro versions of the GT and Rally, hardly a wish remains. 7 inch display. Heated grips, heated seats, shift assistant, illuminated switches, electrically adjustable chassis, up to six different driving modes, and, and, and. This machine is a mid-range travel enduro killer and should really heat up the competition. Whether she has what it takes?

Perfect workplace, top chassis

At the push of a button, the triple is frightened out of its rigidity. The sound is less throaty than that of the previous model. The 900 still hisses, but this hiss turns into an almost twin-like, grumpy coo at higher speeds. We’re in the saddle of the Rally Pro version. You can’t get more tigers. Not even in terms of price. The top model costs 15,800 euros on the table. The equivalent is thank God. Comfortable work and travel space, good wind protection and then this 7-inch color television that shows you almost everything and also serves as a navigation system. Perfect!

The chassis with its 240 mm spring travel at the front and 230 mm at the rear swallows almost everything that lies or stands in front of the wheels in the terrain and still keeps the load on course on the road with great stability. Then the new engine! In a class of its own, really.

You can read why this is so, how the model variants differ, how they drive and how we assess the new Tiger compared to the competition in MRD 6/2020.
