New Triumph Tiger 900 Range For 2024

Triumph has given the popular and excellent Tiger 900 range a mid-life make-over for 2024. Triumph promises more power, more torque, more capability and more comfort in a bid to raise the bar for middleweight adventure bikes and the previous six-model line-up has been trimmed to three models: Tiger 900 GT, GT Pro and Rally Pro.

The three-cylinder engine has received a major update, including revised engine components, which provide 13% more power than the previous generation, giving 106 horsepower of peak power and a higher peak torque of 90Nm.

The new engine also offers greater tractability lower in the rev range. With its T-plane crank and offset firing intervals, the Tiger 900 maintains its characterful and distinctive performance and sound, as well as achieving enhanced performance throughout the whole rev range and up to 9% better fuel economy.

All-new active safety features provide more capability across the range, including enhanced braking for better control and reduced stopping distances, and a new emergency deceleration warning system, which activates the hazard lights when braking rapidly. They automatically deactivate when you pull away.

The new range also features new 7” TFT instruments, with new graphics and menu system and a new USB-C cockpit charger, as well as My Triumph Bluetooth connectivity as standard on all models.

The new rider seat is flatter and roomier, with heated seats on both Pro models, designed specifically to provide more long-distance comfort.

With 20mm adjustability on the seat height for all models and an accessory heated low rider seat is available which reduces the seat height by a further 20mm. This offers GT models with a potential seat height as low as 800mm, which combined with the narrow stand-over width, improves accessibility.

A new damped handlebar mounting system creates a more comfortable ride, plus the enhanced handlebar position on the Rally Pro, with the bars 15mm closer, facilitates a more agile ride while sitting or standing.

The 2024 range has new bodywork across the beak, cockpit and side panels in an integrated design. In case you thought the current Tiger 900 wasn’t flashy enough in terms of colour schemes, the 2024 Tiger 900 features new contemporary and dynamic paint schemes and graphics.

The GT and GT Pro models have Marzocchi suspension with 180mm of fork travel and 170mm of rear wheel travel, fully adjustable on both, while the GT Pro gets electronically adjustable rear suspension for easy preload adjustment. The Rally Pro model uses Showa suspension with 240mm front and 230mm rear travel. The GT and GT Pro come with cast allow wheels, while the Rally Pro has tubeless spoked wheels, the front being 21 inches in diameter. Brembo Stylema callipers are used on all models.

The electronics package remains largely unchanged, which means cornering ABS and traction control and four riding modes, a fifth rider-programmable mode on the GT Pro and a sixth Off-Road Pro mode on the Rally Pro model, with the ability to disengage the ABS and traction control completely.

The seat has been redesigned for enhanced long-distance comfort whilst retaining the ease of movement for the rider to find their perfect ergonomic position. All models feature 20mm of adjustability, as well as heated seats for both Pro models.

A new damped handlebar mounting system creates a more comfortable ride, while the handlebar position on the Rally Pro has been moved back by 15mm.

From an early age, Harry was obsessed with anything that moved under its own steam, particularly cars and motorcycles. For reasons of a financial nature, his stable of fine automobiles failed to materialise, at which point he realised that motorcycles were far more affordable and so he started his two wheel career, owning, riding, building and fixing many classic bikes. Then came the day when he converted his love of bikes into a living, writing, filming and talking about them endlessly. The passion for four wheels never left him, however, and he has now converted his writing skills into singing the praises of cars in all their infinite variety. Bikes are still his favourite means of getting around but the car in its modern form is reaching a level of perfection that is hard to resist. And they're warmer in winter....
