Tiger 660 launch expected next year in India. It is the smallest Tiger from Triumph and will be an interesting motorcycle to look out for..
Triumph has taken the covers off its mid-sized offering – the all-new Tiger Sport 660. The bike has been unveiled globally.
The Tiger Sport 660 is going to rival the mid-sizers like Kawasaki Versys 650 and others. The design is pretty chunky and is armed with a half fairing and a sportier framework that makes it eye-catchy.
While the design on the front looks promising for a sport-tourer, the rear could have been better styled. For convenience pannier mounts are provided as stock.
The seat height has been raised from Trident and the handlebar is slightly wider. Seats are also spacious. To aid in long distance touring, the Tiger 660 gets a 17-liter fuel tank that should offer good range.
The motor equipped in the Tiger Sport 660 has been taken from the Triumph Trident and you get the same power output of 81 PS along with 64 Nm torque.
The sports tourer gets two riding modes – Rain and Road. Other features include throttle maps, traction control, and ABS. The bike comes with a dual instrumentation on a single dash comprising LCD and TFT screens which gives vibes of a bigger Tiger.
Braking duties are managed by Nissin twin-piston sliding calipers at the front combined with 310 mm dual discs and the rear braking is managed by Nissin single-piston caliper coupled with 255 mm single disc.
The smallest Tiger may come to India sometime next year (probably in the first half) at around 7.5-8.0 lac.
