Triumph has added one more version to its popular adventure touring lineup or also known as the Tiger. Named as Triumph Tiger Sport, the bike features a 1,050 cc, three-cylinder engine and sits firmly across the range between the Tiger 800 and Tiger 1200.
The bike features a new single-sided swingarm, a slimmer subframe, a retuned suspension and geometry, along with redesigned fairings and wheels. Looking at the fairings and front fascia of the bike, which is a reminiscence of a certain Japanese motorcycle, the Tiger Sport is more accurate to be brandished as a sport touring rather than an adventure touring like the other Tigers in the family.
Because it now has a slimmer subframe and a single-sided swingarm, the Hinckley-based motorcycle company claims that the Tiger Sport can fit larger panniers to fit in every necessities for your touring needs. Especially if you are taking an ‘extra luggage’ with you. The pannier can also hold a full face helmet. The 1,050 cc, three-cylinder engine cranks out 123 hp and 104 Nm of maximum torque, 28 more hp and 25 more torque than the Tiger 800.
Triumph is expected to release full specifications and pricing for the Tiger Sport this coming February. Meanwhile, the bike is expected to be available in March.
