Two Units of This Rare Tiger 900 Bond Edition Motorcycle are Coming to the Philippines
Only two units of the coveted Triumph Tiger 900 James Bond Edition will be arriving in Manila soon to roll straight into the garages of two lucky owners. Autohub Group, the Philippine distributor of the iconic British motorcycle brand Triumph said that only 250 units of the model were made available worldwide.
The motorcycle is based on the Tiger 900 Rally Pro model, which was one of the two Triumph models used in some amazing stunt sequences in the latest James Bond film No Time To Die.
Prior to filming, the Triumph design workshop team collaborated behind closed doors with the stunt team including special preparations of the Tiger 900 and Scrambler 1200 models to ensure these bikes can handle the extreme and dynamic action sequences for the film’s world-class stunt riders.
“First and foremost, as a stunt coordinator I have to be sure that we can achieve the action on that motorcycle,” the movie’s stunt coordinator Lee Morrison said. “Is it agile and powerful enough for the stunt riders to achieve what I want them to? And also, crucially, does it fit the story of the film in a way that’s credible onscreen?
“We loved the look of the Scrambler 1200, and we already knew we would use those in No Time To Die, but then Triumph offered us several prototypes of a bike that hadn’t yet been launched at that time, and that was the Tiger 900. The whole stunt team realized very quickly that these were amazing bikes. We rode those bikes so much in Off-Road Pro mode and the things are amazing... absolutely incredible.”
Morrison said the stunt team spent a long time on the Tiger, calling it balanced. “You can just have great fun with it. I joined a Triumph Tiger 900 press ride in Morocco recently and you stick cruise control on and settle in to what’s a really nice touring ride. Then, the other end of the spectrum, turn everything off, stick it in Off-Road Pro mode, and you discover the body positioning, the footpegs, handlebars, down to the rake of the bike, even – everything is perfect. The Tiger 900 is the most confidence-inspiring bike, it allows you to really push the ride as far as you want, you can take as many liberties as you want; stand up sideways drifting in third gear, slow wheelie it, slide it Supermoto-style. I honestly think it’s one of the best bikes I’ve ever ridden. it’s fantastic.”
Triumph is celebrating its 120th anniversary this April. The motorcycle was first sold in 1902. It has since then touched millions of passionate fans who share the company’s obsession for motorcycling. The Tiger 900 collection has two ranges opening up a world of urban, long-distance and extreme off-road riding adventures. With a more powerful 900cc triple engine, state-of-the-art technology and an incredible standard of specification, it delivers a new benchmark in adventure motorcycles.
While the Bond Edition Tiger 900 has been sold out globally, the standard Tiger 900 has two variants: the Tiger 900 GT and Tiger 900 Rally Pro. The GT is built specifically for road-going adventure, comfort and capability, and the new Tiger 900 GT range has all the performance, rider-focused equipment and technology to approach every ride in confidence. The Rally Pro variant, on the other hand, is designed for maximum off-road adventure and all-day riding capability, control and comfort.
The price for the Tiger 900 Rally Pro is P1.150million.
