Triumph has unveiled a new Tiger 850 Sport adventure-tourer that the British company says is developed from the latest generation Tiger platform.
What makes the Tiger 850 Sport special, Triumph says, is that it offers “a new ‘tailor-made’ performance and specification set-up designed to deliver an even more manageable, accessible and intuitive road-focused adventure riding capability.”
Triumph says the new Tiger 850 Sport shares the same innovative crank as the latest generation Tiger 900 range but has its own unique 850 tune that “delivers enhanced all-round easy-riding versatility for commuting, touring or just having spirited two-wheeled fun at the weekends.”
The Tiger 850 Sport is powered by an 888cc liquid-cooled, 12-valve, DOHC, inline three-cylinder engine that pumps out 84 horsepower at 8,500 rpm and has 60 foot-pounds of torque at 6,500 rpm. The bike has a six-speed transmission, chain final drive and 3-into-1 stainless steel exhaust system.
Triumph says high-quality components include Brembo Stylema brakes with twin 320mm floating discs up front and a 255mm disc in the rear, 45mm Marzocchi upside-down cartridge forks with 7 inches of travel and a gas pressurized preload-adjustable rear monoshock with 6.7 inches of rear wheel travel.
Seat height: 31.88 inches to 32.67 inches. Wheelbase: 61.25 inches. Dry weight: 423 pounds. Gas tank capacity: 5.28 gallons. MSRP: Starting at $11,995.
