Mechanically, all the bikes are powered by new 888cc 3-cylinder engines that produce around 95 HP at 8,750 rpm and 87Nm of peak torque at 7,250rpm. The engine is then paired with a 6-speed gearbox along with a slip and assist clutch.
Talking about features, the Pro variants get a bi-directional quickshifter, heated seats and a tyre pressure monitoring system. In terms of dimensions, the entire bike range gets variating specifications and the only common things are the 20-litre fuel tank and the built-in, easily adjustable two-position seat height mechanism which enables the rider to change the seat height by 0.78 inches to their preferred setup. Also, all the variants other than the standard Tiger 900 get optimised cornering ABS.
Currently, the Tiger 900 base variant is priced at 12,500 dollars and the prices for the other models are expected to be slightly higher than this.
