I never liked the looks of the 800 and I think the 9oo is greatly improved in many areas. Styling, weight, frame, and tubeless tyres on some versions. But what facinates me is the new engine.
The new 888cc Tiger 900 is described as having a 'T' plane crank.
For the Ride
Can anybody explain this and tell us why it would be better than an even firing 120 deg triple ?

I saw the Tiger 900, at Triumph’s Best of British Tour last week. My gut emotional reaction, I really liked it. I have the 2011 800 xc, which I’ve loved from day 1. It’s crossed my mind, the 900 may be fun upgrade to. I’ll think on it for a couple of months.

I'm waiting to see one up close. they look really wide. I like the better brakes for sure. my '16 xrx wasn't the greatest in the stopping department.
