Triumph Tiger 900 Range: Rs 13.70 lakh-Rs 15.50 lakh
Triumph’s Tiger 900 adventure tourer range retails in a similar price range as the Scrambler 1200 Steve McQueen. The Tiger 900 GT is available at Rs 13.70 lakh while the range-topping Tiger 900 Rally Pro is available at Rs 15.50 lakh. The GT series is road-biased, and thus it features alloy wheels. The Rally series, on the other hand, rides on tubeless-tyre compatible wire-spoke wheels. The touring-focussed character of the Tiger 900 series is complemented by a semi-fairing design and a tall windscreen. The entire Tiger 900 range uses an 888cc, inline three-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that makes 93.9bhp and 87Nm of peak torque.
Honda Africa Twin (Manual): Rs 15.96 lakh
