      This is Triumph’s new Tiger 900, and if you’ve never looked at the Tiger before, or don’t know what it is, this might be the best time to change your perspective because the Tiger has changed much more than its stripes. 
      Like the preponderance of SUVs in Singapore, adventure bikes have dominated motorcycle sales in recent years. As a result, you can get off-road styled bikes of every shape and size – even a scooter.
      While the Japanese 2A ‘light’ adventure offerings, such as the Honda CB400X, are the equivalent of an everyman’s Honda HR-V, the European mid-weight adventure bike segment is for those who want a bit more of everything, without going full-on safari around town.

      The brief here is for a bike that’s lithe enough for that intra-city commute through murderous traffic (yes, the jams are back), comfy and tough enough for long distance trips (when it’s finally “safe” to ride northwards), and with enough oomph to beat other commuters in the traffic light-to-light dash and more.
      This Tiger 900 is totally new, despite the familiar styling cues. Its predecessor, the Tiger 800, was a solid and sometimes stolid choice, first debuting in 2010 and updated twice in its life-cycle (2014, 2018), but it was clear Triumph needed something totally clean-sheet to, well, triumph.

      The new bike is made in Thailand, and like some Ducatis, as well as cars from the Land of Smiles (and more protests), that’s not a problem – in fact it’s the opposite. 
      The build quality of the Tiger 900 is visibly up two notches over the Tiger 800. For example the silver segments on the fairing are painted-on, not stickers, encased in a generous thick layer of clear coat. Sporting an all-new chassis, subframe and suspension,  smaller headlight (LED lighting with daytime running lights, complete with removable headlight protector) and revised fairing. 

      As usual with the Tiger models, there’s a dizzying array of versions to choose from. In Singapore the lineup consists of the entry-level Tiger 850 Sport, then the 900 models: GT Low, GT Pro, and Rally Pro. The GT models being road-centred, and the Rally models being more ‘proper’ adventure and off-road ready. The model ridden here is the GT Low, which is almost 50mm lower than the standard model thanks to the seat and unique suspension layout.
      Compare that to the 800mm-plus seat height of other adventure bikes, and the Tiger makes a much easier time of it with no tiptoeing, and pushing it is relatively easy too thanks to its 194kg wet weight, and 5kg lighter than the Tiger 800.

      While we don’t usually need to opt for shorter seats, being 1.8-metres tall, we can see how the GT Low would be a boon for riders of a smaller stature. The seat has two height settings – 760mm and 780mm – and we chose to set the seat in the “high” position, and this meant full sole contact on the ground and bent knees.

      Unexpectedly, we found the sitting position to be ergonomic, with no complaints from the knees, the 10mm narrower handlebars (complete with handlebar guards) positioned just right, resulting in a neutral, neither sit-in nor sit-on position. The riding position allowed for easy steering, so easy in fact, the bike responded really well to successive left-right-left flicks. So quick and so composed, the Tiger 900 felt much like the Street Triple – and that’s saying a lot!
      The more powerful three-cylinder engine is certainly responsible for that too, the new 900cc unit is Euro V compliant, producing 10 percent more torque (87Nm at 7,250rpm) and nine percent more power in the mid-range rpm, but with the same peak power of 94hp at 8,750rpm.

      That translates to more power and better acceleration all-round, and is enjoyably punchy. The Tiger 900’s engine pulls really hard from 4,000 to 4,800rpm, tapers, then picks up again from 5200rpm to 7000rpm, even in sixth. The fly-by-wire throttle is seamless, reducing the usual lurching when rolling-off and getting on the throttle again immediately.

      On the downside, there was some buzziness from the engine, especially above 6,000rpm, possibly a result of the new firing order, which also makes the bike sound more like a parallel twin than the much-loved Triumph triple burble/whine. 
      What I found unusual was buzziness in the engine, particularly above 6000rpm, apparently a result of the new 1,3,2 firing order, a departure from the 120 degree configuration from the earlier engines. Aurally, the Tiger 900 sounds more like a Yamaha TDM with its 270 degree parallel twin, i.e. sounding more “twin” like than the classic Triumph “triple” exhaust note. Even the characteristic high pitch whine is now muted. 

      It was happy leaning to a considerable 40+ degrees, at which point the adventure-sized 19-inch front wheel would require more, perhaps excessive, handlebar input to increase lean angle. Tackling sweepers spiritedly would also cause a bit of rear wheel bobbing (evident by tyre wear), a characteristic of softly-sprung adventure bikes, but we were able to mitigate that by increasing the preload a few clicks.
      As for non-spirited daily riding, the Triumph’s broad power band, agile handling, and low seat make easy work of the urban jungle, and without panniers the bike’s not particularly broad either. The GT Low doesn’t have an up-down quickshifter, available as an option, and standard on the GT Pro and Rally Pro. We did notice that there was some heat directed at the right knee, though if you don’t wear shorts, nor spend 15 minutes on end in traffic it shouldn’t be a problem.   

      Like any self-respecting Euro adventure bike now, the Tiger’s brimming with technology on all fronts, and it is quite well-specced. 
      On the safety front, Brembo Stylema front brakes deliver good power and feel, even with one finger, and that’s helped along by riding modes (Rain, Road, Sport, Off-Road) and a new optimized cornering ABS and traction control, with IMU (inertia measurement unit).

      The Tiger 900 now sports a 7.0-inch TFT display for a dashboard, which apart from having four layout styles to choose from, also includes a half screen Turn-by-Turn navigation, which requires option hardware, and operation via the My Triumph app.
      Triumph has clearly thought this through, since a waterproof handphone compartment complete with charging capability is provided under the passenger seat. Additionally, the battery is now accessible under the rider’s seat by simple removal of a plastic shroud.

      Underseat phone charger is a nifty feature

      In competition, the BMW F 850 GS and Ducati Multistrada 950 are the closest, with a similar size, spec, though you pay more for the premium badge of course. Like Triumph always does, the Tiger 900 offers lots of bang for the buck in comparison. 
      If we were in the market for an adventure bike agile enough for daily commute, long tank range (each fill up is good for 350km), characterful engine and exhaust note, at a price tag reflective of the world economy, the Tiger 900 would be on that short-list without a doubt.

      What do Stan Smith, NMD, Superstar, and Yeezy have in common? Other than being some of the best-selling adidas shoe collections, these footwear sets are what so many millennials are donning to show off their styles on social media.

Who knows, maybe you can clean up your social media feed by taking aesthetic pictures of your adidas shoes and your follower count will skyrocket.
      Your #OOTD won’t ever be complete without any of these adidas shoes.
      adidas Stan Smith

      These plain white adidas sneakers are embellished with a prominent, colorful heel notch or Achilles collar. The most common heel notch colors are green, red, and pink but adidas have also released special colors and heel notch designs like gold, rose gold, black, and even batik from the Stan Smith W collection. Scared of staining your white sneakers? The Stan Smith line also carries shoes in solid colors like copper and millennial pink. You can pair the Stan Smiths with almost anything, from leggings and sweatpants to mini denim A-line skirts.
      adidas Superstar

      Yet another white adidas sneakers, the adidas Superstar features the iconic three stripes that the brand is most known for. Do to it monochromatic nature, you can pair the shoes with even more outfits like summer dresses, jeans, and leather jackets. If you think the white and black combo is too basic, Superstar also has sneakers in a variety of color combination. The necessary millennial pink, rose gold, and hologram iridescent with pink, blue, and purple hues are some of the color combos loved this generation.
      adidas NMD

      Unlike the Superstar or the Stan Smith, the shoes from the adidas NMD line has a sportier silhouette. Despite its rugged shape, these shoes are suitable to be worn by both men and women. It comes in so many color combination, even more than what the adidas Superstar offers. You can find colors like maroon, navy, off-white, black, and more for the body while the detailing on the rubber outsole either comes with matching color or a different one to give the shoes a nice contrast.
      adidas Yeezy Boost

      Whether you love him or hate him, you can’t doubt that Kanye West is one talented son of a gun. That’s why when he released his Yeezy sneakers in collaboration with adidas, everyone went berserk. Despite its higher price tag, a lot of people flocked online for a chance to get a pair of the rare Yeezy Boost shoes. When compared to an NMD, which people also waited in line for hours for, the Yeezy Boost has a smoother and rounder silhouette. The first edition of the Yeezy shoes comes in neutral colors like muddy grey, black, and white. The later editions, however, comes with an orange stripe along the sides of the shoes.
      Now go on and get yourself one of these essential adidas shoes to perfect your next Instagram OOTD.
