Obviously it's going to be quicker than the 800, but all this site does is regurgitate marketing material like many so called journalists, it's telling when you read "Long-distance travel has been improved on the new Tiger 900 range, with a new larger 5.3- gallon fuel tank" while other testers and even triumph official fuel consumption numbers, tell otherwise that range is decreased by at least 20km.

So significantly quicker is just as much buzzwords as the rest, I would guess it will be 0.3-0.4s quicker.

Have we all had the factory invite for the "Exclusive Preview"? Anybody opted to go?

It's an hours talk, but 2,1/2 hours each way of a journey....for me.

"The exclusive preview will explain how the All-New Tiger 900 has taken a quantum leap forward in capability, whilst outlining key specifications and model differences".

If anybody from here is going perhaps you could ask them why they have left a big hole in the the rear 'mudguard', if you could call it that, why they do not provide any protection to the rear shock absorber and also why they have made the screen smaller than the current 18 on models?

If anybody is interested, I made enquiries regarding the smaller sump capacity. I got this info' from Bill Smiths Triumph dealers.

"According to Triumphs technical data sheet, the oil capacity for the Tiger 900 is 3.15 litres for an oil and filter change".

Brill, bit of feedback please m8. Like to know real 6th gear ratio compared to 800 if you hear it. The 800 just needs a tad more M'way legs without losing low gear zip.

I didn't get an invite, which is a bit of a pi$$er as I've had four bikes from them and the latest isn't yet a year old !

Staffordshire Triumph are doing another one of their launch evenings "See the new Tiger 900 range at our showroom on Thursday 19th March from 6:30pm" and they're a lot closer for me  :028:
Now available in "Batman"
