Imminent launch of the Triumph Tiger Sport 660 India: the most affordable Tiger yet

Triumph Tiger Sport 660 was listed on the manufacturer’s website in India some time ago and now the company is teasing the launch of a new motorcycle. So we wonder if the Tiger Sport 660 is heading to our shores soon. It will be the most affordable motorcycle in the Tiger range, priced at around Rs 8.5 lakh (ex-showroom). Plus, it will also be the most accessible entry-level Tiger there is. Moving up the pecking order, the Tiger range includes the Tiger 850 Sport, Tiger 900 and the larger Tiger 1200, which is also due to launch soon.
The Tiger Sport 660 will come with a sporty half fairing with an integrated LED headlight inside. It gets a nice TFT instrument console and a fuel tank that can hold 17 liters of fuel, three liters more than its other 660 cousin, the Trident 660.
In other markets, the Tiger Sport 660 is available in three color options – Lucerne Blue and Sapphire Black, Korosi Red and Graphite, and a more subtle Graphite and Black. All three color options will most likely be available in India.
The bike is based on the Trident, which means it shares the engine and frame, however, the rear subframe has been updated to carry more load. It also gets an 11mm longer swingarm than the Trident. Up front, the Tiger Sport 660 gets a 41mm non-adjustable USD fork and a preload-adjustable shock.
It is powered by the same 660cc three-cylinder engine which develops 81bhp at 10,250rpm and 64Nm at 6,250rpm and is mated to a six-speed gearbox. It will have an option of a quickshifter.
The Tiger Sport 660’s closest rival in India is the Kawasaki Versys 650 and Suzuki V-Strom 650 XT. Expect an official baby Tiger launch in the coming weeks.
