Triumph Tiger Sport 660 Engine
The Triumph Tiger Sport 660 is finally here, and packing 3-cylinder power. The Tiger Sport 660 is currently the only 3-cylinder middleweight sports tourer on the market. If the 660 seems familiar, that’s because it is.
Triumph lifted the engine and a large portion of the chassis directly from the recently revealed Trident 660. As a result, the Tiger Sport has some similar specifications. 80 horsepower at 10,250RPM and 47 lb-ft of torque at 6,250.
The new Tiger uses a 6-speed transmission and weighs in at 454lbs wet. For that little bit extra, you can also fit an accessory up/down quickshifter.
Chassis, Suspension and Brakes
The Tiger Sport 660 shares its engine and main frame with the Trident, but uses a different subframe and swingarm. The front end is made up of Showa 41mm inverted forks and twin 310mm Nissin brakes.
A preload adjustable Showa monoshock holds up the rear while a singe 255mm disc stops it. The Triumph’s 17″ cast aluminum wheels are wrapped with Michelin Road 5 tires for grip.
To make your rides go longer, the Tiger’s fuel tank holds 4.5 gallons of “petrol.” You can also purchase side luggage and a top case to increase storage using integrated pannier mounts.
The Triumph Tiger relays information with a slightly awkward looking combination TFT and LCD display. Thanks to ride-by-wire throttle, engine modes can bounce between road and rain.
ABS and switchable traction control aid safety, and available heated grips and TPMS make life on the Triumph a little easier. It also comes with self-cancelling turn signals.
The Triumph Tiger Sport 660 will be available in red, blue and graphite starting February of 2022. Pricing starts at $9,295, but if you want some hot red paint it’ll cost you an extra $125. For more information on the Tiger Sport, check out the video linked below!
