- Triumph Tiger Sport 660 to be launched in India soon
- 660cc engine makes 80bhp and 64Nm
Triumph Motorcycles has listed its upcoming Tiger Sport 660 on the India website as coming soon. The British manufacturer recently unveiled the motorcycle for the global market, and it should reach our shores very soon. This new model will replace the Tiger Sport 850 as the entry-level model in the Tiger line-up and it will rival the likes of Kawasaki Versys 650 and the Suzuki V-Strom 650 XT in the Indian market.
This new product from Triumph Motorcycles is based on the Trident 660 roadster that is already available in the Indian market. However, the Tiger Sport 660 features an all-new design, different sub-frame and longer travel suspension. The middleweight sports-tourer gets a semi-fairing along with a tall windscreen at the front, a step-up saddle, integrated pannier mounts, and an underbelly exhaust.
The feature list on the motorcycle comprises full-LED lighting, a Bluetooth-ready instrument cluster, two riding modes – Road and Rain, a switchable traction control, and ABS. The Bluetooth-module and quickshifter would be available as optional extras.
The mechanical specifications are similar to the Trident 660. Linked to a six-speed transmission, the 660cc, inline-three cylinder, liquid-cooled engine on the Tiger Sport 660 makes 80bhp of power at 10,250rpm and 64Nm of peak torque at 6,250rpm.
