In other recent auto news, Triumph Motorcycles has launched its all-new Tiger 900 adventure-tourer motorcycle in India. The new Tiger 900 replaces its predecessor, the Tiger 800 XR range. The motorcycle is offered with a starting price of Rs 13.70 lakh and is available in three variants: GT (road-focused), Rally (Off-road) and the range-topping Rally Pro. The mid-spec Rally variant is priced at Rs 14.35 lakh and the top-spec Triumph Tiger 900 Rally Pro is priced at Rs 15.50 lakh (all prices are ex-showroom).
The new Tiger 900 gets safety and electronic features such as an IMU-based ABS system co-developed with Continental, a bi-directional quick shifter, six riding modes - Rain, Rider, Road, Sport, Off-Road, and Off-Road Pro, and the My Triumph connectivity module as standard on the pro trims.
Mechanically, the new Triumph Tiger 900 will be powered by an all-new BS6 compliant 888cc inline three-cylinder engine. The new engine produces 94bhp of power and 87Nm of peak torque (94bhp and 79Nm on the Tiger 800). However, in the Tiger 900, the peak torque kicks in at 7250rpm, while it used to peak at 8050rpm on the older models. The new Tiger also has a deeper exhaust note, thanks to the new 1-3-2 firing order (1-2-3 on the Tiger 800).
Thoughts About Skill Development Colleges
Since the Skill Development Colleges will have a partnership with major companies like KIA Motors, ITC, Tech Mahindra, HCL, Hyundai, Volvo, Bosch and many more, it will help to grant job oriented skills to many students.
