General information about the Triumph Tiger 900

The new Tiger 900 carries itself with that unmistakable ADV panache and adds contributions of its own to deliver a new, up-to-date look for the Tiger line, a line that first saw light of day all the way back in 1936. A sculpted front fender leads the way with foil-shaped uprights that protect the inner fork tubes from road grit while they also shunt the wind around the tubes to reduce power-sapping drag. The typical bird’s beak front end mounts dual headlights along with high-and-tight turn signals, all in LED. It’s topped off with a vented windshield with small extensions down low that work with the wide cheek pieces to plow a groove in the wind for your trunk, head and legs.
