    I don't 'dislike" the Triumph, but having riden it for 6 years I do know that there is plenty of room for improvement .....  things have moved on.

    I'm just not blinkered by the fact that I have one.

    I will test the new 900 next year.... along with others... as I do fancy a change.

    Don't see why a Triumph should require a service every 6k..  .. its hardly cutting eqdge race bred technology  ... other manufactures can manage it.

    one of the things I don't like about my 900 is that it's hard to see the revs clearly.


    the four digit rev counter drives me crazy as it goes up and down in 10 rev/min steps, meaning unless you are riding in cruise control it changes all the time. Firstly that does not make any sense, steps of 50 revs/min are absolutely enough and secondly the constant movement in the display makes me nervous, honestly I think it creates a safety problem
    Life is too short to drink bad wine or to ride bad bikes.

    If you so dislike the Triumph perhaps  you could exercise the right to "vote with your wallet" and buy a different bike?

    Iím with @felix. I think Triumph staying with the 6k miles service intervals on 2024 bikes is a sign of a cash grab for their service departments more than anything else.
    Iíve had Tigers now since 2014 and much as I like them Iím also casting my eyes elsewhere. Here in Australia a Desert X has been cheaper than a 900 Rally Pro a Norden 900 Expedition that comes with all extras including panniers and racks is only slightly more. There is a lot of very, very good competition out there.

    I wonder if any of the updates can be retrofitted to the previous 900ís?

    When you are talking new pistons, new dash, new exhaust, new bodywork and revised electronics I doubt it.

    I wonder which of the OEM extra's of the 2023 model will fit on the updated 2024 model.
    Such as engine dresser bars, luggage racks, etc.
    AKA TRITIGEX and Mustangpilot

    There does not appear to have been any frame changes so the answer is probably yes, certainly for things like pannier racks. There is a chance the new bodywork might interfere with some crash bars but the bodywork changes donít look that great so who knows at this stage.

    My point exactly.
    Ducati have pushed their general and desmo services way out compared to Triumph.
    BMW now have a 5 years warranty as standard here
    Triumph are still stuck where they were in 2011 when the first Tigers arrived in the country. They are not leading they ae following.

    Personally have no problem with 6K servicing. 1) Because being old school, I think 6k is plenty before changing oil, and as I've found in cars, VW's higher-mileage oil change intervals can cause sludge buildup, eventually wrecking motors. 2) Many customers (although not all  I'm happy to admit) will only do 6K a year or less, and an annual service to me is a minimum for those who don't know about fettling their bikes, for safety reasons as much as anything else.

    Even though I consider myself experienced, having ridden for over a half century, I still find myself embarassed when a good mechanic finds something I"ve missed. :034: You can't beat a fresh eye!
