The boost in capacity comes via a 4 mm increase in bore which helps boost torque from 79 Nm to 87 Nm. Peak twist now arrives 800 rpm earlier at 7250 rpm while peak power remains unchanged at 94 horsepower, although Triumph have promised that 10 per cent mid-range boost.

Triumph Tiger GT
The new Tiger 900 features an 888cc in-line triple with 1-3-2 firing order

Triumph also promise more responsive acceleration, with faster with 0-60mph, 0-110mph and 6th gear roll on times, although they haven’t shared the exact improvement.

A new twin-radiator is also featured, allowing a reduced coolant volume with better cooling performance, particularly as felt by the rider, while allowing for a stylish radiator shroud setup that highlights the three-into-one header setup.

A new dual-radiator setup has allowed for redesigned radiator cowls

Tiger 900 chassis

The 2020 Tiger 900 is also up to 5kg lighter than the outgoing model, depending which variant you choose, with a new modular steel trellis frame and bolt-on aluminium sub-frame.

Triumph Tiger GT
Footpeg placement on each Tiger 900 model is optimised for their expected uses

Each model also features footpeg positions to match the intended riding type, alongside a height adjustable seat with the standard and GT models offering a 810 or 830mm range. The Rally in comparison runs a 850 or 870mm seat height due to the longer travel suspension.

Triumph Tiger GT

Triumph unveil 2020 Tiger 900 range

Triumph has put more “tiger” into their 2020 Tiger 900 range with 10% more torque, LED lighting, a quickshifter, Brembo brakes, a bigger tank and more electronic aids.

They’ve also made the model names more common sense than the Tiger 800 XRX, XCX, XRT and XCA.

The new models are:

2020 Triumph Tiger 900 Rally Pro
GT Pro and Rally Pro
  • Tiger 900 Rally and Rally Pro for serious off-road adventuring;
  • Tiger 900 GT and GT Pro for touring on all roads; and
  • Tiger 900 base model.

There is expected to be a price hike of under $1000, but there is no confirmation yet on pricing or availability in Australia.

Current prices range from $18,550 to $21,300.

More tiger

The obvious change is the bigger capacity now up from 800cc to 888cc and compliant with 2020 Euro5 emissions regulations.

It has 10% more peak torque (87Nm compared with 78Nm) , but power is the same at 70kW, but there is 9% more in the midrange.2020 Triumph Tiger 900 Rally Pro

The three-cylinder engine has a new firing order of 1/3/2 that Triumph says gives more responsive delivery and more tiger growl from the intake.

Power delivery, ABS and traction are controlled by a new IMU developed by the German Continental electronics company.

There are also up to four riding modes, depending on model, with the fourth customisable to rider preferences.

Tiger 900 chassis

All models come with Showa (Rally and Rally Pro) or Marzocchi suspension which is electronically adjustable on the GT Pro’s rear shock.

It allows the rider to adjust four preload settings and nine damping settings through the instruments and a button on the left handlebar.

The Tiger 900 has new lightweight modular steel trellis frame with separate, bolted-on subframe and pillion hangers, dropping 7kg in total weight.

Brakes are now Brembo with the base model getting Stylema 4 four-piston calipers and 320mm discs at the front wheel and a single-piston caliper with a 255mm disc at the back.

GT and Rally add cornering ABS.

Fuel range should be improved with a 20-litre tank, which is 1.1L larger.

All models now have full-colour TFT instruments, although it’s a smaller screen on the base model.
