Triumph Tiger 850 Sport


THE TRIUMPH TIGER 850 SPORT IS A MORE ACCESSIBLE VERSION OF THE FAMED TIGER SERIES. THE design is identical to that of the new Tiger 900 but is distinguis­hed by the new colour schemes and the 850 Sport graphics running along the large fuel-tank.

The engine is the main change in this motorcycle and has been made with the intention of offering riders a more accessible and manageable delivery of usable power and torque. The 888-cc, liquidcool­ed, in-line three-cylinder motor puts out 85 hp at 8,500 rpm and a peak torque of 82 Nm at 6,500 rpm.It features a modular frame with a bolt-on aluminium rear subframe and bolt-on pillion hangers. The suspension set-up comprises 45-mm Marzocchi upside-down cartridge forks with 180 mm of travel at the front and a gas-pressured monoshock rear suspension unit with manually adjustable preload and 170 mm of rear wheel travel. The bike gets an adjustable screen and a comprehens­ive electronic­s package, with a five-inch TFT instrument cluster, all LED lighting, ride-by-wire throttle, two riding modes (Road and Rain), a 12V power socket, ABS (not switchable), and switchable traction control. The bike also features a built-in easily adjustable two-position seat height mechanism that enables the rider to change the seat height by 20 mm to their preferred set-up.

The Triumph Tiger 850 Sport will be launched in the United Kingdom by the end of February next year and will be priced at £9,300 (approximat­ely Rs 9.16 lakh). The motorcycle will come to India around March 2021.
