In July of last year, Triumph Motorcycles made headlines in the adventure/off-road riding world when they put a souped-up Tiger 900 Rally Pro, piloted by former World Enduro Champion Ivan Cervantes, at the Baja de Aragon Rally in Spain.
Cervantes took the win for the (then) newly-formed Trail category.
To celebrate this success, Triumph Motorcycles has been reportedly in the works for a special edition Tiger 900 that will bear the “Aragon” badge.
According to reports, Triumph recently filed patents for the upcoming bike in Australia, and, as with similar types of filings, the details will be pretty few.
What to expect on the upcoming Aragon Edition
We all know that the unit raced by Cervantes in Baja de Aragon last year is a special one, with all the bells and whistles of a fully-prepped racebike. That means a top-shelf suspension system, brakes, ECU, cams, and the list goes on. As for the production version of the reported Tiger 900 Rally/GT Aragon, reports say that the bike will be equipped with larger brakes, a more off-road-biased suspension system, and tires; lighter exhaust, and the same livery as the winning bike that Cervantes rode to cross the finish line.
Additionally, reports have indicated that the bike would be 3 and 2 kilograms heavier than the Rally Pro and GT, respectively. That additional weight could mean heavy-duty skid plates and crash guards and additional auxiliary lights.
Availability is said to be within Q2 of this year for the European market, while the SRP is yet to be announced.
