Triumph has listed the recently unveiled Tiger Sport 660 on the Indian website suggesting that it would be launched in the country soon. While we await its official launch date, let’s tell you all that you need to know about the Tiger Sport 660.
The Tiger Sport 660 is based on the Trident 660 that is sold in India. However, it gets different bodywork to suit its sport-touring ability. So there is a half fairing with sleek LED headlamps that are similar to the now discontinued Tiger Sport 1050. Besides this, the Tiger Sport 660 also sports a tall windscreen. Triumph has also tweaked the single piece seat on the Trident for a seemingly comfier unit on the Tiger Sport.
List of features
The Triumph Tiger Sport 660 carries forward the same feature list as its street bike version. It has two riding modes- Road and Rain, a Bluetooth-compatible instrument cluster as well as switchable traction control and ABS. Not to forget, it also gets full-LED lighting for the headlamp, tail lamp and turn signals.
No change to performance
Powering the Tiger Sport 660 is the same 660cc, inline-three cylinder, liquid-cooled engine as the Trident. This motor churns out 80bhp at 10,250rpm and 64Nm at 6,250rpm. It comes mated to a six-speed gearbox with an optional quickshifter.
Triumph is offering the Tiger Sport 660 in a choice of three dual-tone colours- Lucerne Blue/ Sapphire Black, Graphite/Sapphire Black as well as Korosi Red/Graphite. We can expect the motorcycle to be offered in all three colour schemes here.
India launch timeline
We can expect Triumph to launch the Tiger Sport 660 in India by the end of this year or early next year. It would be priced at a considerable premium over the Trident 660 that costs Rs 6.95 lakh, ex-showroom. The motorcycle would go up against the Kawasaki Versys 650 in the country.
