General information about the Triumph Tiger 900 GT

A tubular-steel Trellis on the Tiger 900 GT forms the main structure with a bolt-on subframe and yoke-style, cast-aluminum swingarm to handle the rest. Mount 45 mm, usd Marzocchi forks with manually adjustable compression and rebound damping up front, and both run a Marzocchi monoshock with adjustable preload and rebound-damping values. The fandanglery continues into the anchors with a multi-mode, corner-sensitive ABS feature that oversees the work of the Brembo Stylema monobloc calipers. Up front, dual 320 mm discs and four-piston binders take care of business with a single-pot caliper and 255 mm disc out back. Cast wheels mount Z-rated rubber in a 100/90-19 and 150/70-17 hoop on the front and rear, respectively.
