The Tiger 900 range comes with top-end Brembo disc brakes, with 320mm on the front and 255mm discs at the back. The suspension travel has been tuned to make it conducive for long touring as well as going to off road conditions. The GT variant comes with road, rain, off-road riding modes, while the Rally has enhanced range of off-road tunings to meet specific rider needs.
The top variant of the Tiger 900 comes equipped with LED headlamps, heated seats for both rider and pillion, tyre pressure monitoring system and more.
