Triumph has this week launched its new Tiger 900 Aragon editions in Australia with both the road-oriented GT and off-road-focussed Rally versions now available in ‘very limited’ numbers.
The Triumph Tiger 900 GT Aragon is priced from $25,490 rideaway, while its more rugged Tiger 900 Rally Aragon sibling checks in from $26,090.
This translates to a $700 premium compared to the GT Pro and Rally Pro, upon which the new Aragon editions are based.
The new flagship middleweight adventure bikes have been built in celebration of the brand’s Baja Aragon campaign in 2022, at which ambassador and test rider Ivan Cervantes took victory aboard a Tiger 900 Rally Pro in a gruelling 450 kilometre race.
More recently, Cervantes claimed the Guinness World Records title for the greatest distance travelled on a motorcycle in a 24 hour period, using a Triumph Tiger 1200.
Distinguishing the new Tiger 900 GT Aragon edition is a red, black and white colour scheme, while the Rally Aragon debuts a black and white colour scheme with yellow accents, while both get unique Aragon badging and two-tone seat designs.
Both Aragon editions also gain engine protection bars as standard, while the Rally Aragon also has fuel tank protection bars.
Motivating the entire Tiger 900 range is an 888cc three-cylinder engine that is tuned to produce 70kW and 87Nm.
Ivan Cervantes secured victory in the 2022 Baja Aragon, crossing the finish line one hour and six minutes ahead of his rivals in the Trail category. In the scratch classification, which included professional riders aboard 450cc rally motorcycles, Cervantes finished in 11th position.
Spencer has a keen eye for hard news, and does some of his best living on deadline day. He loves more than anything to travel on his motorcycle, and is adamant that Melbourne Bitter is a world-class lager. He also knows how to operate the big computery thing in the office. By night, Spencer plays guitar with Melbourne punk outfit LOUTS.
