Triumph Triumph Tiger 900 [2020] | First Ride Impressions

Triumph Tiger 900

The new-for-2020 Triumph Tiger 900 gets a fresh look, more technology and a raft of updates to take on the best of the adventure tourer motorcycle class

The Triumph new model offensive continues with the launch of the 2020 Triumph Tiger 900 to bring the Hinckley firm’s adventurer tourer right up to date.

Lightweight, rideable and dripping in character with its triple engine, the Triumph Tiger has always been a fan favourite since it was launched in 2010 but has steadily slipped behind newer rivals in that time.

As such, the Triumph Tiger 900 sees the model line brought right up to date with a refreshed design, a raft of new tech to improve riding performance on or off road and tinkering under the engine to make it more efficient.

We’ve spent a morning riding it in the sandy surroundings of Morocco to bring you our first impressions, which you can view right here. Be sure to keep it Visordown for our FULL VIDEO and editorial this week too.
