Triumph’s Tiger brand changed India’s adventure scene for good. The reason being, for the longest time, the Indian market was missing a motorcycle that was powerful, had great off-road capabilities, was loaded with features and the most important one, an ADV that was aspirational and had access to official company service.
But when the Tiger came in, Indians finally had a big ADV they always wanted. And no surprise there that the bike was an instant hit. The sales grew rapidly and at one point the Tiger was the highest selling bike for Triumph in India. As a result, the British company kept bringing in new variants and updates frequently to India. And what we have today is the Tiger 900 Rally– their mid-spec variant and a few dealers tell us that this is their highest selling model right now which is really good considering the fact that this bike costs around Rs 17 lakh on-road Mumbai.
