Tiger 900 poll
« on: June 28, 2020, 10:18:04 AM »
Hi guys. Just for a bit of fun, I thought a poll might be interesting.
For info, Iím on a 800XRX and donít intend to upgrade for the foreseeable future. Reason: Iím happy with mine, itís paid for, itís been modified to what I want.
The new 900: Iíve not ridden it, but Iím not keen on the looks or the TFT. By all accounts it rides really well but thereís not enough there (for me) to upgrade.

Matt :)

Only problem with the question/options is that it excludes new purchasers who haven't had the bike before or come from something else.   :038:

Something like "Will you purchase the new 900" (or something along those lines) might have been better instead of saying "upgrade".

Also, some people might not have a negative view of the 900 but might be happy with what they have at the moment as well.

Same here.
I could have written that exact same post.

Poll amended.

I've had about 15 large bikes over my lifetime. Always one at a time. Each time I sell one and get something new it is for something very different than anything I've ever had. I doubt I could ever be interested in the 900.

I had a Tiger 800 which I had 5 years and loved it. I tried the later one and didn't think it was worth changing to as my old one felt better. Then I moved to a Tiger 1050 sport and couldn't get on with the handling but loved the power. I kept it less than a year. I test rode a 1200 DVT Ducati Multistrada and was smitten. Light like the Tiger 800 but with mega power and handling. I have however had an engine issue, which I am in the process of getting sorted. I am a bit pee'd off about it so am looking at the Tiger 900 so a test ride is on the cards I think.

I just don't see the 900 as that much of an improvement over my '11 800. Another 9/12 and I'll be into double digits ownership.  :300:

There's a good road test/review of the new 900 Rally Pro in this weeks MCN, they say it's a good road bike but prefer the KTM790 Adventure R for any off road but could be down to the tyres. They seem to like the 900 overall. But their average 43mpg & 137miles brimmed to reserve light, :005: won't go down well with riders on here who quote 65 - 70mpg from their 800's.
Current bikes Tiger800 XRx, Tiger Sport 1050, Ariel FH 650, Yam Serow 225.
