Triumph India launched Tiger 850 Sport, dedicated to touring adventure, at Rs 11.95 lakh. This road-focused new Tiger 850 comes with two riding modes – Rain and Road, and both have head-turning poise and built-in adaptability for riding needs. You can book this motorcycle against a token amount of Rs. 50,000 and get it delivered in March.
Triumph Tiger 850 is powered by an 888cc thrilling incline triple engine, producing 85hp and 82Nm of torque at 8,500rpm and 6,500rpm, respectively. It features a T-plane crank and 1-3-2 firing order, which delivers a distinctive raspy and deep roaring sound. The engine of Tiger 850 is paired to a 6-speed gearbox, with a slip and assist clutch, promising a good ride for the city, open road, and big adventure.
The company also provides a quick-shifter as an accessory. Triumph Tiger 850 Sport’s two riding modes – Rain and Road alter the throttle response and traction control system settings to match the riding state. Riders can also turn off the traction control for the sideways thrill.
You can get these settings via a 5.0-inch TFT display, which was removed in the previous generation Tiger 800. With the same chassis as Tiger 900, the new Triumph is equipped with a gas-charged monoshock at the rear and a 45mm Marzocchi USD fork at the front, alongside manual preload tuning.
Tiger 850 comes with the same braking system as Brembo Stylemas on the Tiger 900, with 320mm front disc and 255mm rear disc, along with dual-channel ABS. Besides, the Tiger 850 has a lightweight body (192kg) compared to Tiger 900 GT.
Currently, the Tiger 850 Sport is considered the new entry-level Tiger replacing the Tiger 900, which was not made available in India.
