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.
