A closer look at the most affordable bike from Triumph’s Tiger lineup

Just a few days ago, Triumph globally unveiled its smallest ADV, the Tiger Sport 660. While it’s based on the Trident 660, the Tiger Sport 660 certainly has its own identity. So here’s a closer look at what exactly the most affordable Tiger has to offer.

The Triumph Tiger Sport 660 has a completely different fascia that takes no inspiration from its bigger siblings. Its split LED headlight is reminiscent of the Daytona 675 (no complaints here), topped by a fairly large manually adjustable flyscreen to aid its touring purpose. 

At your disposal is a 660cc liquid-cooled inline three-cylinder engine with the output rated at 81PS and 64Nm, the same as Trident. It’s mated to a 6-speed gearbox with a slip-and-assist clutch. Triumph claims the bike consumes about 4.5 litres of fuel every 100km, or around 22kmpl. Fair enough, we say.

The Tiger Sport 660 gets two riding modes (Road and Rain), switchable traction control and dual-channel ABS. 

You can access all the rider aids using the split instrument console. It’s a TFT-LCD combination that differs from the single-pod unit on the Trident 660. The company will also offer the My Triumph connectivity system as an option. It includes a smartphone-compatible turn-by-turn navigation system, an immobiliser, all of which can be toggled via the switchcube integrated into the switchgear on the left side. 

The Tiger Sport 660 gets the same tubular steel perimeter frame as its streetfighter sibling, but the subframe is new and the swingarm too has been elongated for better weight management. 

It’s suspended on a 41mm USD Showa fork up front and a Showa monoshock (remotely adjustable for preload only) out back. Both get 150mm of travel. 

The braking hardware consists of twin 310mm front discs with Nissin callipers at the front and a single 255mm rear unit. Dual-channel ABS is standard. The 17-inch alloys are wrapped in Michelin Road 5 rubber. 

Triumph has also altered the rake and trail of the Tiger Sport 660 to make it more comfortable than the streetfighter sibling. 

It gets a 17.2-litre fuel tank and tips the weight scale at a claimed 206kg, which is a significant 17kg more than its naked sibling. 

With a seat height of 835mm, the Tiger Sport 660 should be accessible to most riders. Besides,  Triumph also offers a 20mm lower seat as an option. 

We expect Triumph to price the Tiger Sport 660 at around Rs 8 lakh (ex-showroom) in India. Once launched, it’ll stack up against the Kawasaki Versys 650 and Suzuki V-Strom 650XT...,..
