The new Tiger Sport 660 is a derivative of the Trident 660 which is the most affordable bike available from Triumph Motorcycles. The new Tiger Sport 660 uses the same mainframe as the donor bike, however, the rear subframe has been modified to suit use under the demands of an adventure bike.
The Trident 660’s 660cc three-cylinder powerplant is also carried over. It was designed to produce the same 81hp of power and 64Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a six-speed gearbox and an optional quick up/down shifter.
Some of the main features of the motorcycle include LED headlights, a modern Bluetooth-enabled TFT instrument console, riding modes – road and rain, switchable traction control and ABS. For suspension duties, the bike uses a non-adjustable 41mm USD fork and a preload-adjustable shock with a remote preload adjuster.
Being positioned as the middleweight adventure touring bikes, the Tiger Sport 660 saw bikes such as the Kawasaki Versys 650 and Suzuki V-Storm 650 XT.
