Chance Williams, the General Manager of Foothills BMW/Triumph in Lakewood, is sharing his latest purchase: the 2022 Triumph Tiger 900 Rally Pro. We asked Chance what it is that made him pull the trigger on the sleek new model.
What does a man with access to several options choose for his ride, and why do you love it so much?
C: I grew up riding dirt bikes, so I have off road experience, and I used to work on Jeeps. Though I’ve also ridden plenty of street bikes. Well, the Tiger puts all of that into one vehicle. I can ride on the street or the dirt, and even bring my backpacking gear--all on two wheels.
What features of the 2022 Triumph Tiger 900 Rally Pro make it perfect for you, as an avid rider with considerable motorcycle expertise?
C: The off-road suspension, definitely. It also has plenty of horsepower and wind protection to keep me comfortable. I mostly love how it does everything I want it to do. It’s the perfect “hybrid” bike.
The 2022 Triumph Tiger 900 Rally Pro is lighter and makes more power and torque than its predecessor model. Cranking out over 93 horsepower, the Tiger has the guts to go anywhere you want to go in Colorado.
With tubeless tires and longer suspension, you have enough cushion beneath you to absorb all of what the gnarliest trails dish out. On pavement, the Rally Pro's suspension has the capability to let you flick your way through corners easily and drama free.
The engine gives you six modes for driving including off-road and off-road pro, which let you customize your riding experience. Compared to the Tiger 800, the 900 offers extra torque and low-RPM horsepower which come in handy on the trail and the highway. And with two radiators, you and your motor will stay safely cool. Plus, this allows the engine to be in a more forward position, giving you more ground clearance and a lower center of gravity.
Bottom line, more agility at low speed, stability at high speed, and enough clearance to traverse any of Colorado's most rocky or paved roads.
