Triumph have just released the specifications, availability and price of the all-new 2022 Triumph Tiger Sport 660. Pricing will start at $14,690 ride away and it will be available Q1 2022.
Triumph’s all-new Tiger Sport 660 is the new definition of triple-powered versatility, with its 660cc triple engine performance advantages, class-leading power and specification, plus great long-distance touring capability and finally a touring option for LAMs riders!
Just like the Trident 660, launched to international acclaim last year, Triumph say the new Tiger Sport 660 has been designed to set a whole new benchmark for performance, specification and cost of ownership. Bringing significant advantages to the middleweight adventure sports category, the Tiger Sport 660 delivers a new first choice for riders looking for maximum versatility in every ride. From commuting, to everyday riding, to longer trips.
The 660cc powerplant in the new Tiger Sport 660 brings Triumph’s triple engine performance advantages over a twin engine with its low-down torque, combined with strong mid-range performance, and incredible top-end power. Peak torque of 59Nm@5250rpm and peak power of 35kW@8750rpm make the new Tiger Sport 660 one of the most powerful bikes in the LAMs class. Triumph say it delivers the perfect balance of thrilling useable performance from low down in the rev range, all the way to the redline.
Power delivery is managed by a sophisticated engine management system with a ride-by-wire throttle for a precise and responsive feel, while the slick six-speed gearbox has gear ratios optimised for fun and all-round everyday rideability. The 660 triple engine’s distinctive, deep exhaust note is delivered through a short and minimalistic underslung stainless-steel silencer.
Triumph claim the Tiger has been perfectly balanced and is easy to control, with precise steering aided by lightweight aluminium tapered handlebars. The twin seat is practical and comfortable, with an accessible rider seat height of 835mm and ergonomically optimised pillion grab handles fitted as standard. The Tiger Sport 660 also benefits from a slim stand-over width, for easy manoeuvrability at lower speeds and a planted feel at a standstill.
The suspension has been carefully developed to deliver all of Triumph’s handling advantages, with a sporty feel when riding alone, while also offering a plush feel for longer trips and two-up touring. On the front, the Tiger Sport 660 is equipped with 41mm Showa upside-down cartridge forks, delivering 150mm of wheel travel. These are perfectly matched with the Showa monoshock on the rear, with a dual rate spring to optimise performance for solo or pillion riding. The monoshock also features remote hydraulic preload adjustability for tailoring the ride for a pillion and/or luggage.
The five-spoke, 17-inch wheels are lightweight cast aluminium, adding to the bike’s exceptional agility, while the Michelin Road 5 tyres bring great road holding performance in both dry and wet conditions. Excellent stopping power is achieved thanks to the Nissin twin-piston sliding calipers with twin 310mm front discs, controlled by the span-adjustable brake lever.
Practicality and versatility are top of the list for middleweight adventure sports riders, and the new Tiger Sport 660 delivers all of the capability needed for commuting and city riding, as well as weekend escapes and longer trips.
The beautifully shaped tank holds 17 litres of fuel giving great range, while the sleek and aerodynamic screen is height adjustable through a simple, one-handed operation, enabling the rider to easily adjust the level of weather and wind protection while riding.
Touring capability is further enhanced with the discreetly integrated pannier mounts, which allow for the easy and seamless fitment of the dedicated new accessory panniers while maintaining the clean styling of the rear bodywork when riding without luggage. For additional luggage capacity, an accessory 47-litre topbox is also available, which can securely accommodate two full-face helmets. The panniers and topbox can also be colour coded to match the bike.
The new Tiger Sport 660 is equipped with a high standard of rider technology, including the new multi-functional instruments with TFT display, which provides all necessary rider information in a clear, compact and uncluttered design. These have been specifically designed to integrate seamlessly with the accessory fit My Triumph connectivity system, which enables turn-by-turn navigation, GoPro control, and phone and music interaction, all operated via the switchgear and displayed clearly on the TFT screen for easy rider interaction while riding.
Also, two rider modes are available, Road and Rain, which adjust the throttle response and traction control settings, improving rider control for greater confidence in all riding conditions. Safety is further enhanced with ABS and switchable traction control, both fitted as standard on the Tiger Sport 660. Traction control can be turned off completely, via the instruments, if desired.
To further improve the riding experience, the Tiger Sport 660 is equipped with a slip-and-assist clutch and a span-adjustable clutch lever for light and easy operation, reducing rider fatigue, particularly in urban riding. For maximum efficiency and durability, lighting is LED across the entire motorcycle, including the distinctive new twin headlights, the compact and integrated tail-light, and the self-cancelling indicators.
Triumph say the new 660 features all-new bodywork sculpted for clean, flowing lines from the cockpit, with its twin headlight set up, right through to the minimal rear end and contoured tail-light. Additional premium styling details include the teardrop mirrors, sculpted radiator cowls and fork protectors, and the minimalistic underslung stainless-steel silencer.
As well as having a low price tag starting at $14,690 ride away, the new Tiger Sport 660 benefits from the lowest cost of ownership in the category. This includes its 16,000km (or 12 months) service interval plus its two-year unlimited mileage warranty, which can be optionally extended by one or two years. The Tiger Sport 660 will be available in the first quarter of 2022 and will only be available in LAMs trim for Australian customers.
