Triumph Motorcycles plans to release the 2020 Triumph Tiger 900 on December 3
The 2020 series will get different tags like Rally and GT instead of the XR and XC.
The latest models will comply with Euro-V emission norms.
Triumph Motorcycles have released exciting photos and videos of the latest offering, the Triumph Tiger 900 that is releasing on December 3.
The front fascia gets an attractive look with a unibrow style LED DRL and auxiliary lighting, a part of cornering lighting function. This feature will most likely be an optional one. The teaser video also shows the off-road Tiger bike with a cross-spoke layout.
The company has declared that it will be naming the variants differently this time. The 2020 series will get the name Rally and GT for the off-road spec XC and the road-based spec XR range respectively.
The 2020 Triumph Tiger 900 Rally series will sport fantastic off-road specifications such as tubeless tyre-compatible cross-spoke wheels, a higher level of engine protection, long-travel suspensions, and a 21-inch front wheel. The on-road-spec GT does not require such specifications. It will feature a lower travel rating for the suspension, a 19-inch alloy front wheel, and a fiber engine cowl.
Spy shots reveal that the chassis of the 2020 model will not have a welded unit but a bolted sub-frame. It ensures cheaper and more comfortable repairing options in the event of a crash. The fuel tank could also get a new design.
The Triumph Tiger 900 will get new engines that comply with Euro-V emission norms. The 2020 Triumph Tiger series will feature a 900cc motor instead of the existing 800cc. The inline 3-cylinder liquid-cooled engine will deliver more power. The current engine delivers 95ps of power and a peak torque of 79Nm.
The UK website mentions that the Triumph Tiger 900 will debut on December 3, 2019, with an Indian launch some time by mid-2020.
