RIUMPH MO­TOR­CY­CLES had un­veiled a heav­ily re­vised ver­sion of the Tiger Sport a while ago and now they have gone ahead and re­vealed juicy de­tails about the bike. It gets the 1050cc in-line triple from the Speed Triple al­beit with 104 changes. The engine makes 124bhp at 9475rpm and 106Nm of torque at 7000rpm. The bike weighs in at 218kg (dry) and the seat height of 830mm is sim­i­lar to the Tiger 800 se­ries. Sus­pen­sion bits are courtesy fully ad­justable Showa 43mm up­side­down forks at front and Showa monoshock damper link­ing a sin­gle-sided swingarm for the rear. Brak­ing is via twin 320mm float­ing discs up front gripped via Nissin four-pis­ton ra­dial calipers and a 255mm disc at the rear. The Tiger Sport gets ride-by-wire, three-rid­ing modes, multi-stage trac­tion con­trol, slip­per clutch, cruise con­trol, and ABS as stan­dard. Tri­umph has po­si­tioned the Tiger Sport be­tween the 800 and Ex­plorer. While the bike will be launched in Europe this month, we ex­pect Tri­umph to add the Sport to its In­dia line-up some­time later this year with the price at around 15 lakh.
