Triumph Tiger Sport 660

News on the upcoming Triumph Tiger Sport 660 could not have come at a better time. We just got back from Revzilla’s ADV fest in South Dakota, and ADV bikes are fresh on the brain. To top it off, our current favorite ADV is the nimble CB500X. Smaller displacement ADVs offer the perfect blend of on, and off-road performance.

That’s why we are stoked to see images of a Triumph Tiger powered by Triumph’s 660 triple. The current Triumph Tiger lineup consists of an 850, 900, and 1,200. Adding a lighter, more compact alternative is a welcome addition to the fleet.

Another new Triumph, the Triumph Trident 660 comes in at a reasonable $8,195 despite its impressive fit and finish. With that in mind, we can hope that the upcoming Tiger will share not only a power plant with the Trident, but a similarly justifiable price tag.

The liquid-cooled Inline 3-cylinder produces a healthy 80 horsepower, and 47 lb-ft of torque in the Trident. Though Triumph has not officially released any details on the Tiger Sport 660, we can deduce a few things about it.

From the photos, we see Showa inverted forks with dual Nissin front brakes. The Tiger 660 also has a set of street oriented Michelin tires, removable side storage, and a small windshield. Though details are currently few and far between, this is one ADV we are looking forward to getting our hands on.

Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks.
