Late last year, a leaked image from a dealer presentation revealed that the new Triumph Trident 660 would have two siblings - an adventure bike and an adventure-sports tourer. Triumph has now revealed camouflaged images of the latter.
Will be called the Triumph Tiger Sport 660
Uses the Trident’s 660cc three-cylinder engine
Gets 17-inch wheels
Triumph Tiger Sport 660 design
Triumph has released a number of images of the upcoming Tiger Sport 660 wearing camouflage. Despite this, there are plenty of details to be discerned. What’s most obvious is that the bike gets a big fuel tank, substantial radiator shrouds, a sizeable windscreen and sleek twin LED headlamps.
The bike also gets a bigger single piece seat and what looks like a tall and wide handlebar. The seating ergonomics are likely to be upright with a hint of sportiness.
Triumph Tiger Sport 660 engine
Visually, the Tiger Sport 660 appears to have the same 660cc three-cylinder engine from the Triumph Trident 660. This engine produces 81hp and has a smooth, linear power delivery that will be a nice fit in a motorcycle like the Tiger Sport 660.
Like the Trident 660, the Tiger Sport will get a six-speed transmission and a bi-directional quick shifter will be available, but whether this will be an accessory or a standard item remains to be seen.
Triumph Tiger Sport 660 chassis
The images show the Tiger Sport 660 has a similar looking black colour Showa USD fork as the Trident 660. It is quite likely that the Tiger Sport will have more suspension travel than the Trident, but whether the suspension will be adjustable is unknown at this time.
The wheels remain 17-inches at both ends and are wrapped in the same Michelin Road 5 rubber, hinting at this motorcycle’s preference for tarmac. The tubular steel frame appears to be the same, but the bike may get a new rear subframe and the swingarm also appears to be different to the Trident’s.
Triumph Tiger Sport 660 India launch and price
Triumph has never sold any motorcycles from the old road-focused Tiger Sport range in India so far, but that’s likely to change with this machine. Given how production-ready the bike looks in these images, we expect the international unveil to happen in a matter of weeks.
Going by tradition, expect an India launch to happen sometime in the first months of 2022, with prices likely to be between Rs 7.5-8.3 lakh, ex-showroom. At this price, the Tiger Sport’s closest rivals will be the more affordable, but ageing Kawasaki Versys 650 and the more expensive Suzuki V-Strom 650.
