Triumph Tiger Sport 660 was launched in the Indian market at a price of Rs 8.95 lakh (Ex Showroom, Delhi). The company stated that this is an introductory price that may rise in the future.
The Triumph Tiger Sport 660 is positioned as the entry-level adventure touring model in the company's lineup. It was introduced in the global market last year and finally went on sale in India. The company started bookings for the new model a few weeks ago for a nominal sum of Rs 50,000 and deliveries are set to begin shortly after launch. It went on sale in India in three colors: Lucerne Blue, Sapphire Black, Korosi Red and Graphite, and a simple option of graphite and black. All of these color options are now available for purchase in international markets.
The new Triumph Tiger Sport 660 comes out as a derivation of the Trident 660, the most affordable motorcycle available from Triumph Motorcycles. The new Tiger Sport 660 uses the same main frame as the donor bike, but the rear subframe has been modified to suit the requirements of use on the adventure bike.
The 660 cc triple-cylinder powertrain from the Trident 660 is also carried over. It is rated to produce the same 81 horsepower and 64 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a six-speed gearbox and an optional up/down paddle shifter.
Some of the bike's key features include LED headlights, a modern-looking and Bluetooth-equipped TFT controller, riding modes: road and rain, convertible traction control, and ABS. For suspension duties, the bike uses a 41mm non-adjustable fork and pre-adjustable shock with a remote preload adjuster.
Being placed as a mid-weight adventure touring bike, the Tiger Sport 660 has its sights set on motorcycles like the Kawasaki Versys 650 and Suzuki V-Storm 650 XT.
