GT Pro and Rally Pro models of the Tiger 900 also get a bi-directional quickshifter, heated seats and TPMS system. The Tiger 900 comes with up to 6 riding modes including Rain, Road, Sport, Off-Road, Off-Road Pro and Individual. The base model only gets rain and road modes though. There’s also anti-stall function on the off-road modes to help you get out of tricky situations.

We expect Triumph to launch the new Tiger 900 in India by early-2020.
