Engine & Power:

2020 Triumph Tiger 900 gets an all-new 888cc, DOHC, inline three-cylinder engine that delivers 93.7bhp at 8,750rpm peak torque at 87Nm at 7,250rpm. Compared to the outgoing model, The power has also gone up by 9 percent in the mid-range while the engine delivers 10 percent more torque. The motor has a unique exhaust sound as it has a 1-3-2 cylinder firing order; different than 1-2-3 of the 800. The company claims the new firing order replicates the stronger throttle character, sound, and feel of the inline-triple motor in the lower RPMs without losing the mid to top-end power delivery of an inline-three.
