    The base model appears to be about 13 lbs lighter in dry weight than the "base" 800 XR. The Rally Pro appears to weight a tiny bit more than the XCA dry, but that could be including accessories?

    Triumph australia website lists the current XCA as 208kg dry vs the new Rally Pro at 201kg dry. Certainly not insignificant

    It'll also be pretty interesting to see power/torque curves, has no more peak power than the 800 but surely more bottom end.

    And thank god you can now get an up+down quickshifter on the middleweight tiger!

    This reminds me of my audiophile days, reading specs for very expensive preamps that weren't any better sounding in a blind test to the naked ear.
    Every time I get off my '15 XRx after riding I think the perfect bike has been made, and I actually own one. Doubt I'd find an '18 much less a 900 any better for my taste.....spoken by he who knows he'll likely never be able to afford one these beautiful machines.

    I can see the low-end toruqe improvements and lower weight being a big deal for off-road guys, but you're probably not wrong for on-road use

    I had a couple of the early 800's. If this thing gets off its arse with more low/mid torque than those rev boxes I could be looking at my next bike.

    Tiger-900-RALLY-PRO-MY20_Pure-White_LHS.png There's a good set of photos at the end of this article:
    https://www.motorcycle.com/mini-features/2020-triumph-tiger-900-900-gt-900-rally-first-look.html

    A lot of sensible improvements. I just commented in the homepage article... For those of us that ride off-road the Rally Pro has one fatal flaw. The wheels appear to be tubeless, with outboard spokes. That means the rims have a wide section outside of the tire width. In my experience those are just waiting to be bashed by a rock and ruined. Standard rims, or tubeless rims with the spokes going to a a center raised rib would be better, and The width needs to be 1.85" wide in the front vs. 2.1" as was stock on the 800.

    I appreciate:
    Ergonomic updates to the handlebar position and the tank width
    the anti-stall feature to increase the revs.
    Folding brake pedal and shifter
    Seat key release on the side instead of the back
    Front turn signals finally inboard
    Engine lower and more forward (and split radiator)


    I probably don't need the triumph shift assist (quick shifter).

    Not bad. I wait for the year with blue color. I wish they had longer travel suspension with 17-19 cast wheels option.

    Any way to know if these will be at the Javitz Center NYC motorcycle show this weekend? Would make it worth the trip.

    SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!

    I had a gen 1 tiger 800, and a gen 3 1200, loved them both. I had been thinking about going back to a 1200 in the spring, but this is exactly what the doctor ordered. I loved the lower weight of the 800 but disliked the design of the gen2 bike. I am absolutely smitten by the Rally Pro with the white frame and will snatch one up as soon as the arrive!

    My only gripe is the tail light. It's hideous. The plastic mount is awful, and its tiny and ugly. I loved the tail light on the OG version...If I have one request of the aftermarket its a replacement for that thing. (I'd also hoped for more HP but will take the torque)

    Anyone see if the transmission ratios have been widened?

    A reasonable update, but they went the wrong way with the engine for me. I wanted a bit of top end back like the Street Triple.

    I could care less about the electronics. Riding modes are useless.

    Brake and suspension upgrades were definitely needed.

    I agree about the tail light, downgrade, as is the headlight with the unbalanced one sided low beam apparently.

    Very happy with this reveal. Weight is right for the class, specs are right, triples are ideal (for me at least), seat height is quite low for the suspension travel.. Can't really fault anything.

    Only possible downside is it may still be somewhat top heavy but otherwise I'm a fan.
