Triumph Tiger 850 Sport Launched At INR 11.95 Lakh
Back in November, Triumph introduced the Tiger 850 Sport and the British manufacturer’s new ADV is now the entry-level edition in its category. As per the company, the Triumph Tiger 850 Sport is aimed at a large number of potential buyers, especially big bike purchasers first time who are looking for an affordably priced motorcycle that is not overloaded and delivers a non-aggressive yet powerful performance. The company has launched the Tiger 850 Sport at INR 11.95 Lakh.
The Triumph Tiger 850 Sport is an adventure-tourer in the entry stage and is built for tarmac riding instead of carving tracks.
As previously stated, the moniker could indicate that it may have shortened engine dimensions, but this is not the case here since it has the same three-cylinder, liquid-cooled 888 cc inline engine with a T-Plane shaft as is used on the other Tiger 900s. But the maximum power and torque output were marginally reduced by Triumph to make it more accessible. At 8,500 rpm and 82 Nm at 6,500, the Tiger 850 Sport provides 85 hp. The gear is a 6-speed unit that is slip- and assists clutched to the engine. In the mix, Triumph also cast two riding modes: road and rain.
The Tiger 850 Sport looks identical to the Tiger 900s and differentiates itself with dual-tone coloring themes (Graphite and Diablo Red, and Graphite and Caspian Blue). This entry-level ADV rides with the new Michelin Anakee Adventure tires, with 19-inch front and 17-inch rear wheels. When it comes to functionality the Tiger 850 does have a five-inch TFT instrument panel, with all the necessary readings including rpm, odometer, etc. A switchable traction control system is also available for the new Tiger.
Triumph has assured that the Tiger 850 Sport has premium cycle components, even though it’s an entry model. In addition to a petrol pushed-up mono-shock, the Marzocchi adventure-tourer Tiger 850 has a 45 mm inverted fork with a 180 mm travel and a 170 mm rear-wheel travel.
