- New teaser released on social media handles
- Pre-bookings open since December 2021
- Launch likely very soon
Triumph Motorcycles India’s latest social media post hints that the company will soon launch a new product in our market. The company is yet to reveal any details and the teaser image on its social media handles only shows crates of this upcoming motorcycle.
The Indian arm of the British manufacturer has commenced the bookings of the Tiger Sport 660 and the Tiger 1200. We expect these boxes to contain the most affordable Tiger series motorcycle yet, the Tiger Sport 660. Previously, a few Triumph dealers had confirmed to Bikewale that the pre-bookings have been really well for this upcoming motorcycle.
The new Tiger Sport 660 features an all-new design, a different sub-frame, and a longer travel suspension setup to enhance its touring capabilities. The styling cues include a semi-fairing and tall windscreen, a step-up saddle, integrated pannier mounts, and an underbelly exhaust. The feature list comprises full-LED lighting, a Bluetooth-ready instrument cluster, two riding modes (Road and Rain), a switchable traction control, and ABS.
This motorcycle shares its 660cc, inline-three cylinder, liquid-cooled engine with the Trident 660. Linked to a six-speed transmission, the motor is tuned to deliver 80bhp at 10,250rpm and 64Nm of peak torque at 6,250rpm.
The new Tiger Sport 660 will rival the likes of Kawasaki Versys 650 and the Suzuki V-Strom 650 XT in the Indian market. Expect this motorcycle to retail at a premium over the Trident 660 roadster and retail in the Rs 8-9 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) price range.
