POSTED: 29/10/2022

Tiger 1200 Rally Pro put to the ultimate test

The Rally Pro has now become the greatest-sized capacity adventure motorcycle to complete the challenging HARDI 24-hour trial in South Australia. The bike battled through multiple difficult cross-country terrains - testing its capabilities to the absolute maximum.

This bike was huge compared to other bikes in the event and it was immensely challenging for the riders as they embarked on their 24 hours of continuous riding.

Champions return

Expert adventure bike rider and two-time Isle of Man TT champion, Cameron Donald, sat in the saddle for the event. The bike was a massive contrast to the other lightweight enduro bikes over the weekend and proved its worth in more ways than one. 

"Physically, that was one of the toughest things I’ve ever done on a motorcycle,” Donald said. “To ride out there in that terrain on these bikes over four six-hour laps for 24 hours was such a battle. It was brutal."

“A lot of people told us we were crazy, not expecting us to finish a single lap let alone four laps to finish the race. Worse yet, an experienced competitor who’s finished the race 24 times said this year’s course was by far technically most difficult."

"I was constantly amazed by how well the new Tiger 1200 got through the terrain. There was nothing it couldn’t do."

The History

This event has been running since 1924 and is Australia's oldest motorcycle race. It comprises of four six-hour laps with each lap consisting of 12 consecutive trail sections. Three evenly spread-out fuel top-up points are allowed with essential motorcycle maintenance and rider sustenance. Assistance outside these parameters is not permitted.

Of the 138 competitors in this year's championship, only 91 finished and 40 were disqualified.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
