Both motorcycle uses up-side down forks from Marzocchi, they have a diameter of 45 mm with 180 mm of travel and are manually adjustable for rebound and compression. At the rear is a monoshock that gets manual preload and rebound adjustment. Braking hardware is also shared between the motorcycles. There are twin 320 mm discs in the front and a 255 mm disc at the rear.
As the name suggests, the Tiger GT is made for touring on smooth highways because of which it comes with alloy wheels. Then there is the Rally Pro which gets spoked rims which are more durable and can take a beating while doing off-roading.
