Triumph launched its 2024 Tiger 900 line in India. There are now only two models available – the GT (Rs 13,95 lakh) or the Rally Pro (15,95 lakh). Tiger 900 Rally is no longer available in India and internationally.
- The 888cc Triple-Cyl Engine produces more torque and power
- A new TFT dash comes with Bluetooth as standard
- Prices are up Rs 15,000 to Rs 45,000
The new engine has a higher power output and torque. It now produces 108hp (9,500rpm) and 90Nm (6,850rpm), an increase of 3Nm and 13hp over the previous bike. The Tiger 900 now has a power output that is comparable to the more expensive Ducati Multistrada V2 or DesertX (corresponding competitors for the GT and Rally Pro).
The seat height on both models has been increased by 10mm. This means that the GT’s size is now between 820-880mm. While the Rally Pro sits at an impressive 860-880mm.
It’s time to revisit the question that has been asked a lot: Which SUV is the best under Rs 20 lakhs? Volkswagen will launch the Taigun GT Edge Trail Edition tomorrow in India. The Trail Edition is one of the special editions Volkswagen announced for the Taigun line and Virtus. Our dealer sources indicate that the Trail Edition will cost about Rs 30,000 more than the GT trim it will be based upon.
The Taigun Trail Edition will be limited and is a cosmetic upgrade to keep the model current in light of new competition.
- Taigun Trail Edition based on GT trim second from the top
- Roof rails and special decals are added to give the car a rugged look
- Only available with the 1.5 TSI Turbo-petrol
Linger in Champagne
Book a trainline ticket for the high-speed TGV to Reims (just 45 minutes away, with WiFi on board). Reims is one of France’s Top French Cities, meaning that it is a shining example of joie-de-vivre. Rent a car at the Reims station (book in advance for automatic transmission rentals). If you don’t have a car, it’s difficult to travel around the Champagne region. Taxis are also not readily available. You can hire iGoVE to chauffeur you around Champagne in a Tesla if you don’t feel like driving (because of the booze, obviously). Visit the more than 800-year-old Reims Cathedral. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where French kings have been crowned between 1027 and 1825.
Royal Champagne Hotel & Spa is your Champagne home base. This 49-room hotel opened just this summer. Royal Champagne, located in Champillon, is almost evenly split between Reims and Epernay. This is where you will find many of the tours and tastings. You’ll be unable to leave the Relais & Chateaux Hotel, which is a dreamy place. The sommelier will help you choose from 200 bottles of champagne at the hotel bar. You can also enjoy the view of rolling vineyards in the Montagne de Reims while relaxing by the outdoor pool. Royal Champagne hired Jean-Denis Rieubland to oversee the hotel’s culinary program, which includes Le Royal, a fine-dining restaurant decorated with portraits depicting the most significant women in Napoleon Bonaparte’s life.
