Triumph Motorcycles India has begun taking pre-bookings for the Triumph Tiger 900. The Tiger 900 is a brand new model and will be launched in India in the coming weeks.
Pre-bookings for the Triumph Tiger 900 have commenced in India. The pre-booking for the motorcycle can be done by paying an amount of ₹ 50,000. The new Tiger 900 is a massive leap from the Tiger 800 in terms of performance, feature and one would say design as well. The Triumph Tiger 800 is one of the best-selling ADVs in the country and no doubt, the new Tiger 900 will have its share of buyers too. The new-generation Tiger 900 gets a fresh design! It was never a beautiful motorcycle to look at but now, it looks leaner and meaner, especially with the slim LED headlamps, narrow face and the short ADV beak.

The motorcycle gets a slight bump in displacement (from 799 cc to 888 cc).

The base Tiger 900 GT is expected to be priced at around ₹ 12 lakh, going up to ₹ 15 lakh for the fully-loaded Tiger 900 Rally Pro.
