Triumph gave us a glimpse of the heavily updated 2016 Tiger Sport earlier in February. At the time the British motorcycle manufacturer just revealed it to come with a new 1,050cc triple-cylinder powerplant, the same one that also works force on the Speed Triple. The company has now released a detailed specification sheet.
The 2016 Triumph Tiger Sport makes peak power of 126 horses at 9,475rpm and maximum torque of 105.8Nm at 7,000rpm. To keep things exciting, this new Tiger Sport gets an improved mid-range of around 5 per cent while the torque too has gone up by 4 per cent.
The seat of the Tiger Sport sits 830mm above the ground, same as the Tiger XR and the XRx. The Tiger Sport tips the scale at 218kg. Thanks to a claimed efficiency figure of around 19 kilometres to a litre, the Tiger Sport gets a range of about 350km.
Other features on the 2016 Tiger Sport include ride-by-wire, riding modes, (rain, road and sport), traction control, cruise control, ABS and a slipper clutch. To keep it in sync with the Euro 4 norms, Triumph has also worked on the exhaust system and its combustion chamber. The Tiger Sport will also come with self-cancelling turn indicators and in sync with it touring capabilities, a power socket.
Features aside, the Tiger Sport’s beauty is in its versatility. With an improved engine that flaunts a stronger mid-range and features that will aid its off-road ability, the Tiger Sport is a genuine all-rounder.
Triumph will launch the Tiger Sport in the UK later this month at £10,300 (Rs 9.74 lakh) and it will make its way to India soon. Positioned between the Tiger 800 and the top-end Tiger Explorer, expect the Tiger Sport to be priced around Rs 15 lakh mark.
