Triumph’s Tiger 900 adventure bike has been seriously impressive since its release in 2020, selling over 45,000 machines and even taking the coveted MCN Machine of the Year in its Rally Pro guise.

For 2024, Triumph have gone for evolution rather than revolution, starting with gifting that impressive triple motor a few slight updates which have made it even better than before.

Not only does it have more grunt at the bottom end, but the smooth flow of power is now carried through even further to the top end, with an impressive level of urgency. Best of all, though, is how smooth it is; it’s now far less vibey than before through the newly dampened grips, and it feels as smooth as anything else cruising along at motorway speeds too.

Fuel consumption has improved as well, with an average of 55mpg on twisty, throttle-happy roads that quickly rose towards the 60mpg mark on A-roads. As a touring bike that can go the distance, the tweaks to the engine and the ergonomics now mean that the Tiger 900 GT Pro is up there with the very best of them.

The chassis and suspension set-up on the GT Pro are mightily impressive as well, offering a comfortable, spacious riding position that is impressively plush on nice tarmac, while still offering suppleness for bumpy rides, too. Although the suspension isn’t fully adjustable (the front has no option to alter the preload), the ease of electronically adjusting the rear makes life easy, which is perfect with luggage or a pillion.

The previous generation Tiger 900 GT Pro was an impressive mile-munching tool, but with these subtle tweaks, it’s now even better than ever.

There’s very little to complain about when it comes to the ride quality of the Tiger 900 GT Pro. The cockpit offers an impressive amount of room even in the lowest seat height setting (it can be quickly altered from 820mm-840mm), thanks to the wide handlebars, low footpegs and the extra padding from the seat. Not only does the seat have thicker foam, but it’s also flatter which offers more space, and will easily handle a full day of riding without being too uncomfortable.

On tall-rounders and adventure bikes the screen can frequently be a bit of a pain in terms of buffeting, but the Tiger 900 offers an impressive level of protection with very little discomfort and a smooth airflow, even on the tallest setting. Although it’s not the cleanest design to look at (the springs are exposed, facing the rider) it’s incredibly easy to adjust on the move with one hand, and it offers a noticeable difference from the lowest to the highest setting.

The chassis and suspension set-up is impressive too, offering a window of usage that handles everything from fast, flowing cornering to pootling around in town. Although the weight still feels quite high up it’s well-balanced enough to not be an issue at slow speeds, and has a nice, tight turning circle too. The result is that Triumph’s Tiger 900 GT Pro truly is a joy to ride at any speed, and will happily tackle the city bustle as well as it can cope with some peg-scrapping antics too, if you want some sportiness injected into your adventure machine.

On the subject of which, braking power is incredibly potent, as those Brembo Stylemas offer bite with a responsive feel through the lever. Although the rear brake is strong, it doesn’t have the same nuance as the front, feeling more like an on/off switch. Even so, it’s by no means terrible and has plenty of power.

5 out of 5 (5/5)

Triumph have put the hours in on this motor and it shows, with a significantly updated 888cc T-plane triple. The ’24 model has new pistons which means a higher compression, a new cylinder head with larger inlet ports, new inlet and exhaust camshafts, new (and longer) intake trumpets, new exhaust header assembly and new silencer too.

The result is a monumental difference to the riding experience, improving on an already impressive platform. It still has a huge hit of punchy torque at the very bottom of the rev range, but it now carries it all the way through to the redline with ferocity, which makes the Tiger 900 as happy being exciting and sporty as it is being docile.

That 888cc motor now feels smoother at the very bottom of the rev range, with a sublime throttle connection, even in ‘Sport’ and ‘Off-road’ mode. The quickshifter and autoblipper are smooth as well, and the Tiger will happily sit at motorway speeds in a quiet, controlled manner.

It now offers a real 60mpg figure on cruise control too, and does so without any excess vibrations through the ‘bars and seat, which has drastically improved the whole riding experience. This is thanks to a new seat design, and the internal engine work smoothing things out and also the damped handlebar mounting.

Triumph’s Tiger 900 GT Pro is a well-finished machine for the most part, which looks and feels premium not only in its componentry, but in its detailing too.

In terms of reliability, the previous generation Tiger 900 has proven to be a dependable machine with a lot of positive reviews. However, there have been a few issues which mainly came from the first generation, and Triumph have been keen to address this.

Valve clearance intervals have now been upped to 18,000 miles, and there’s been a 27% reduction in service costs too, which has always been a big gripe from owners.

5 out of 5 (5/5)

At £13,895, Triumph’s Tiger 900 GT Pro isn’t cheap, but it’s impressively priced in the 19” front wheel middleweight(ish) adventure category, especially when the standard equipment on the Pro is taken into account.

In terms of its rivals, Yamaha’s advanced and impressive Tracer 9 GT+ is £14,910, while Ducati’s electronically suspended Multistrada V2 starts at £15,795. A thorn in the Tiger's side comes from BMW’s F900XR which starts at £10,350, but a reasonable specification machine costs £12,010 and still doesn’t come as well equipped.

4 out of 5 (4/5)

The Tiger 900 GT Pro is impressively spec’d, coming equipped with just about everything that is needed on a mile-munching adventure machine.

In its Pro guise, you get a centre stand, heated grips, heated seats (both rider and passenger), handguards, cruise control, an electronically adjustable shock, cornering ABS and traction control, a quickshifter and autoblipper - the list goes on.

It now has the same 7” TFT dash and interface first released on the Tiger 1200 models which is fairly simple to navigate, but isn’t the cleanest dash in the business. It’s also got a really slow processing time when navigating through the menu, and it feels like it takes a lifetime to fire up after the key has been twisted.

Model history & versions

Model history

Triumph overhauled their middleweight adventure bike range in 2020 when they replaced the Tiger 800 XC (off road focused) and 800 XR (road focused) with all-new 900 models.

The new bikes got increased engine capacity to become 900s (888cc) and also swapped to a T-plane 270-degree crank designed to mimic the low-down grip and torque of a V-twin.

Triumph also ditched the confusing model designations  in favour of GT for on road and Rally for off, which was later adopted across the Tiger 1200 range, too.

Other versions

There are several versions of the Triumph Tiger 900 to choose from. The base Tiger 900 GT (£12,195) forgoes the electronic shock adjustment of the Pro as well as a few gizmos like heated seat and quickshifter.

There is also the Rally Pro versions of the Tiger, too, which share the same platform as the GTs, but comes equipped with a 21” front wheel, long travel suspension and a few other subtle tweaks.

Both the GT and the Rally also come in an Aragon special edition for 2024.

5 out of 5 A Surprisingly Excellent Motor Cycle (for the young at heart)
05 April 2024 by Gucci

Version: GT Pro

Year: 2024

An excellent mid size tourer at a reasonable price.. I recently sold my BMW 2023 R1250R (triple black) as I thought at 68 years of age it was time to hang-up my helmet....I lasted 4 weeks without a motorcycle and started looking for a mid-sized do it all motorcycle. The choices that I liked were the Yamaha Tracer GT + and the Triumph Tiger 900. The Triumph won out in the end as the Australian delivered Yamaha only came in a livery with purple wheels that left me well and truly cold. I took delivery of the Triumph last Tuesday and went for a long ride the following day, all in all, the Triumph has impressed greatly (and after owning 15 new BMW's over the last 50 years of riding).

Ride quality & brakes 5 out of 5

Suspension and brakes are outstanding and are certainly the equal of my past three R1250's (with semi adaptive suspension and Brembo equipped brakes).

Engine 5 out of 5

106 hp is proving to be a perfectly adequate for my needs and certainly enough for Australian over policed roads.

Reliability & build quality 5 out of 5

The build quality is very close to that experienced with BMW. I would liken the BMW as a Rolex and the Triumph as a Tudor....very close, but BMW still remains a bench mark (and rightfully so at that price point).

Value vs rivals 5 out of 5

Although I am yet to have the bike serviced, from initial inquiries the Triumph should prove to be considerably cheaper to maintain than my previously owned BMW's.

Equipment 5 out of 5

Loving the switch gear, the height adjustable screen is perfect for my 74 kg, 173cm frame. It is nice to again have a heated seat and must say the additional LED driving lights are a nice (safety) touch. The only disappointment is that Michelin does not make road orientated tyres for the Tiger 900, having said that the Metzler's are proving to be more than adequate.

Buying experience: Purchased the motorcycle new from a Triumph AD, the experience was Ok, but far short from the customer experience provided at BMW AD's.

4 out of 5 I upgraded to the new model
11 March 2024 by Triple G

Version: 2024 Tiger 900 GT Pro

Year: 2024

Annual servicing cost: £400

This bike not set your soul on fire, but by god it is easy to ride in almost any setting. I owned a 2021 model for a few years so the upgrade to the engine is appreciated, though I still think 125hp is what this bike will eventually end up at like the street triple. I've had the bike for about 60 days at this point and put on about 1500 miles. Negatives first.. I don't like the stock Metzler Tires and can't wait to get rid of them. They are better than the last generation but still can't hold a line, at least these aren't vague feeling. The windscreen sits slightly lower by about a inch or so. I'm 6ft and the wind barely goes over my helmet. I do get way more bugs on helmet than the previous tiger. Wind protection is good don't get me wrong but if you are 6ft or taller you may feel the need to go to the aftermarket. I have no plans to do that myself however. TFT screen is not bad its just fussy. Too many sub menus to navigate to change music, suspension, tire pressure, fuel gauge and such. The Good.. The engine is fantastic. This bike will not pull your arms off but it will straighten them pretty quickly. The engine really pulls around 5k and up. The seat is fantastic and the cockpit is very pleasant. I can ride the bike for a full tank and not get tired.

Ride quality & brakes 4 out of 5

Ride quality is exceptional. Obviously its a shame no preload on the front shocks. The adjustment for rebound and damping are surprisingly very noticeable. One click and and you will feel it. As previously stated the Metzler tires are not great but ok. The brakes are great like on all Triumphs. Great feel and adjustable.

Engine 5 out of 5

I want 125hp but I always want 10 more hp in every bike I own. 125hp with 72ft pounds of torque on this bike would be perfect in my opinion. The engine is sublime. Is it still vibey? yes it is, but its much better and really should not deter you from buying one.

Reliability & build quality 5 out of 5

Quality is everywhere. Not sure what to say about this.. Its a Triumph. I consider them the Lexus of motorcycles. My 2021 Tiger had zero issues and put on 18,000 miles on it. I expect the same out the 2024 model.

Value vs rivals 4 out of 5

I paid 400 dollars for my first service. I plan on doing all my own servicing from here on out till the 18k valve check. New tires every 5k or so.

Equipment 4 out of 5

Heated seats and grips are musts for me since I ride year round here in the Southern USA. Center stand for easy oil changes and tire changes. Cruise control works very easily.

Buying experience: Charleston Triumph. I will not buy from any other dealer. Easy and no pressure.
