  • Final prototype of the Triumph Tiger Sport 660 unveiled

    Whenever a manufacturer comes out with a new motorcycle based on a new platform, it is nearly inevitable that there will be more motorcycles based on it. A whole lot of recent examples attest to that fact and the most recent one is the Trident 660. When the motorcycle was unveiled, it was inevitable that it'd spawn more motorcycles based on it. The Triumph Tiger Sport 660 is the first one.









    Late last year, there were reports that the Trident 660 will get two more siblings- one would be an adventure model and the other, an adventure tourer. The Triumph Tiger Sport 660 is most definitely the latter. From the images, one can read a lot of details despite the camouflage. Large fuel tank, tall windscreen, substantial fairing and LED headlamps.

    The ergonomics are also fit for an adventure tourer with a tall handlebar and fairly forward-set footpegs. The single-piece seat also fits the bill and looks quite plush as well. While the tubular steel frame looks similar to the Trident 660's, the rear subframe seems slightly different. The suspension will likely be revamped with more travel as well.

    What's more or less confirmed is that Triumph Tiger Sport 660 will be powered by the same engine that powers the Trident 660. Therefore similar power and torque figures are expected even if Triumph opts for a slightly different state of tune. But with this particular model biased towards the tarmac, a different tune may not be necessary. The tarmac bias of the Tiger Sport 660 is evident from the similar 17" wheels on both ends shod with road-biased tyres.

    From the images, the Triumph Tiger Sport 660 looks more or less production-ready so we may have an official unveil on the horizon. But, likely, the motorcycle won't be seen plying on the Indian roads before early 2022. Once it does though, it will be competing with Kawasaki's Versys 660, Suzuki's V-Strom 650 and, in the near future, maybe the Tuareg 660.

    Looks, promising. If they can price is well then it could be the best middleweight Adv tourer we all need.
