Triumph has globally unveiled their latest motorcycle in the Adventure tourer class, The Tiger 850 Sport . The All New Tiger 850 Sport replaces only the entry level Tiger 900 GT , the other models will continue to be in production . The Tiger 850 Sport employs the same T-plane crank as the latest generation Tiger 900 range but in its own 850 tune , which Triumph says is designed for a more accessible and manageable delivery of usable power and torque. The Tiger 850 will go on sale in the indian market in early 2021 along with the recently unveiled Triumph Trident .The new Tiger 850 sport has been optimised for accessible road-focused adventure fun.
The new 850 Sport is powered by the same mill as the Tiger 900 , what that means is that it retains the unique 1-3-2 firing order giving it the much needed low end torque , though because of being in a different state of tune aiming at being a more accessible and manageable motorcycle , the Tiger 850 Sport puts down a peak power of 85PS @ 8,500rpm and peak torque of 82Nm @ 6,500rpm. The responsiveness of the engine is complimented by the slip and assist clutch, which reduces lever effort and provides additional comfort on both long journeys and in urban environments.
The Tiger 850 Sports comes loaded with new age gadgetry like –
- Brembo Stylema brakes –
These are lightweight, compact, carefully sculpted and high performing calipers, with reduced volume around the pistons and brake pads, reducing the internal space occupied by brake fluid, and delivering a more immediate braking response. Increased airflow around the brake pads also helps the calipers to cool quicker.
Marzocchi suspension –
45mm Marzocchi upside down cartridge forks, with 180mm travel, combine with a gas pressurised monoshock rear suspension unit with manually adjustable preload and 170mm rear wheel travel, to deliver a sporty yet comfortable ride.
5” TFT instrument cluster –
The Tiger 850 Sport features a high contrast 5” full TFT display, for excellent visibility in all light conditions. Key information is presented to the rider in a clear and intuitive way.
All LED lighting –

ABS and switchable traction control –
