What Is It Like?

Triumph Tiger 900 GT Pro

About me

I'm a 27 year old male, 5ft7. I've been riding a year and a half and had a Kawasaki ER-6F for a first bike then moved onto the Triumph. I had test rides on a few different bikes including the Suzuki V-Strom 1050 pictured next to the Triumph.

Why did you choose it?

It's good value for money. I was after a comfortable ride and was looking for more of an adventure bike. The GT Pro standard equipment far exceeded expectations and beat all rival bikes I was looking into.

What is good about it?

The heated grips and seat are good in cold weather. The optional Bluetooth module to add a go pro and control it from the bike are good features.

It's very comfortable on long distances with a 200 mile ride home from collecting the bike. Cruise control come in handy on the long stretches of motorway and the different modes were fun on B roads.

The quick shifter was something that was new to me but I became accustomed to it quickly and it works well.

What could be improved?

Slow speed riding in traffic was a little strange at first, getting used to the t plane crank as it seems a bit jittery, but once you get used to the power delivery it is fine.

Having a tech mounting bar would be beneficial with it been a touring bike. The V-Strom has a good mount just above the dash, which would be an easy enough job for Triumph to do by increasing the size of the handle used to move the fly screen up and down.

A USB output near the dash would be better than the Hella DIN outlet.

What is the economy like?

I was getting 60+ mpg on the 200 mile mainly motorway like ride home and now around 54 mpg for a mixture of A & B roads.

Any mods or upgrades?

When looking for the bike I was struggling to find a GT Pro in stock due to Covid and it was a long wait for a new one. I was offered the GT with all the upgrades but you ended up with less for more money.

I managed to find a used one less than 2,000 miles with a lot of effort. I'm looking into the pannier set and top box but I’ve only put a quad lock onto it at the moment.

How is the engine?

The power delivery and torque are very good compared to the V-Strom, which I found a little bit all or nothing.

How does it handle?

It handles very well and doesn’t feel heavy.

What are the brakes like?

The Brembo brakes work very well and are well balanced. ABS also help in the unfortunate event of needing to brake hard.

Is it comfortable?

Thanks to the electronic suspension you have the option of how you want the suspension set without the need to manually adjust. Also the rider preload settings for carrying passengers and panniers is a nice feature to have.

How reliable have you found it?

I’ve had no issues with the bike but I have only had it 2 months.

To sum up

The GT Pro is very good value for money. Riding height options are easily adjustable under the seat, it handles well and fuel consumption is good. An all round pleasure to ride.
