Triumph Tiger 900 Rally 2020


The battle for trails is being played out on two fronts. The main one brings together all general manufacturers and some of smaller scale: the road. The other, more technical, initiator of one-hour epics or out-of-bounds journeys. Triumph is present on both, with its Tiger XR and XC, in several displacements. Not to mention the special forces 1200 Scrambler.

Hinckley has decided to carry a marked offensive with the new Tiger 900 family. New engine, new chassis, new face and end of enigmatic authentication codes accompany machines with enticing promises. To tackle the off-road with a member of the siblings, Triumph offers the Tiger 900 Rally. The package goes up a level from its previous one, the 800 XCx.

No need to go four ways (it will be for later ;-), the 900 Tiger is much more attractive than the previous generation. No more esoteric mace gaze; place for cheeky eyes, the beginnings of a more feline silhouette. A design change was needed as well as a new name as the Tiger has changed..

He wants to make you dream. He imagines you crossing expanses where only wildebeest, yellow grasses crushed by the sun and lost stones meet. When a tree announces the trails, the Tiger 900 Rally pretends to be at its best.
Starting with an engine with a fuller trunk. The 3-cylinder gains 88 cm3, a different firing order to gain character, improved cooling, repositioning in the frame to optimize weight distribution, a good dose of torque and more availability. No change in terms of power with 95 horsepower coming out of this 888 cm3. It is more practical to claim an A2 kit without going through a specific version. But if the watts remain, it does not mean that they are the same. The maximum power is obtained earlier, at 8750 revs instead of 9500, and we are entitled to more force in all modes; up to 9% more at mid-range. With 8.9 mkg, the maximum torque increases by 10%, also at a lower speed.

Triumph 900 Tiger Rally 2020 Enough to rush at high speed, relaunch without downtime and overtake all the bugs in the area. Around the boiler, Triumph has installed a new frame. Still a tubular steel trellis, but with a different design. Beneficial point, the rear frame is no longer welded to the main section. Instead, an aluminum structure is bolted to the trellis. Much more practical to change if the back is crumpled during a bowl. A new swingarm is also making its appearance, as well as a new tire configuration. The tiger gets rid of its inner tubes to adopt Tubeless tires. The spoked rims keep the same dimensions of 90/90 in 21 inches for the front and 150/70 in 17 inches for the rear.

Strangely enough, the crash bars and the aluminum engine guard have disappeared; the latter is just replaced by a piece of plastic. This indicates on a machine which wants to be ambitious of adventure. Does Triumph skimp on the equipment? Would we like to orient the customer towards options or another version? Or would it be absolute confidence in the new crossing capabilities of the Tiger Rally? ?
It must be recognized that its suspension elements have also passed a course. The factory started by switching suppliers, this time preferring Showa to WP. The inverted fork grows from 43 to 45 mm in diameter and gains the adjustment of the preload, in addition to the rebound and the compression that the element of the 800 allowed. The rear shock absorber receives the reinforcement of an adjustable rebound, in addition to the preload. Thus, more settings; but also increased deflections for suspensions. With 20 mm at the front and 15 at the rear more, the 900 Tiger has a sliding clearance on 240 and 230 mm. All blessing for more daring in off-road, with a smirk in front of bumps, jumps and blows.

Triumph also offers great confidence on the braking side to the entire 900 Tiger family. Not only does the diameter of the discs increase to reach 320 mm, not only does the ABS become cornering and multi-mode, but it takes advantage of the top calipers from Brembo, the Stylema.
What also increases … The wheelbase, a little, 6 mm; the tank, from one liter to boost the capacity to 20 units; the saddle height, 10 mm. Less cool for people with measured sizes. This will require a little more effort, although the minimum height of 850 mm (870 in high position) is still far from a pure enduro. As for the weight, it is the diet. Eight kilos of TPF lost while switching from XCx to Rally.

Triumph 900 Tiger Rally 2020 Unlike the pioneers who set off with a compass, a map, halfway scurvy and a knife as their only weapon and tool, this all-terrain trail (how does it pleonasm?!?) Gives in the serious electronic pack. We already suspect this with its 7-inch TFT screen, larger than that of the 800. This is confirmed with the following additions. Thanks to the contribution of an inertial unit, the ABS and the traction control are now sensitive to the angle of inclination of the bike. An Up & Down shifter allows gears to be changed in both directions without touching the clutch. The lighting is full LED, consumed by a daytime light strip with a unique signature.
The complementary offer includes pretty much everything you need … or not. A cruise control, a 5-position joystick to control the dashboard, 4 driving modes (Road – Rain – Off-Road – Sport), a “phone box” under the saddle with a USB socket, another socket 12V type and heated grips.
A bit more ? Before looking at the options catalog, take a look at the Rally Pro. Equipped with a good ladle of additional equipment, with permission to pierce the ceiling of 15,000 bullets.

Triumph has worked, well worked to increase the value of its “little” Tiger. More than improvements, it is a new motorcycle with increased capabilities, a strengthened identity, a desire for quality and efficiency mixed. Certainly, it is not cheap, but its customers do not come to this market for “cheap”.
