The Tramontana retains the overall look of a standard Tiger. Changes include Öhlins suspension with 300mm of travel instead of the standard 200mm, custom triple clamps and linkage, new instrumentation, a one-off Arrow exhaust, and a whole bunch of weight reduction—about 40 pounds. The airbox, frame, gas tank, and a few other basics remain stock. The hardest part to manage in your garage (or with your credit card) would be recalibrating the software after you’ve replaced the standard exhaust and chucked the key. That’s when it comes in handy to be drinking buddies with the engineer who programmed the ECU.
