The NEW 2016 Triumph Tiger Sport has been designed to redefine the meaning of versatility to deliver the best of all worlds - real sporting prowess, performance and touring capability whether riding alone or with a pillion.
The latest generation Triumph signature 1050cc triple engine delivers you a smooth, responsive, sporty performance, while its chassis and suspension has been developed to deliver a dynamic yet incredibly comfortable ride. Rider-focused technology including ride-by-wire throttle and Rider Modes, a new torque assist clutch, multi-level traction control, cruise control and ABS lets you cover the miles with ease.
The latest evolution of the Tiger Sport centres on the iconic 1050cc triple engine. Featuring 104 developments to optimise power delivery, which include new cylinder heads, inlet ports and piston design, this new generation power plant delivers 126 PS @ 9,475 rpm 106Nm of torque @ 7,000 rpm for waves of immediate torque.
Instant throttle response is courtesy of a new ride-by-wire throttle system, which allows the rider to make maximum use of the triple engine’s signature drive in every situation from highway cruising to cross-town commuting.
The new, 48% freer flowing silencer not only amplifies the exhaust note, it sounds richer and also contributes to 8% better fuel economy.
The dynamic handling and touring comfort of the new Tiger Sport is achieved through a compact single-sided swinging arm and the application of Showa 43 mm upside down forks on the front with adjustable preload, rebound and compression damping, and a Showa Monoshock with adjustable preload and rebound damping at the rear.
The inclusion of new switchable multi-level traction control and ABS coupled to Twin 320mm floating discs, Nissin 4-piston radial calipers at the front and a single 255mm disc, 2 piston Nissan caliper at the rear, complements and completes the package.
Rider and pillion comfort reaches a new level of sophistication with restyled, grippier footpegs, a tinted, adjustable screen, new mirrors and adventure style handguards.
A new tinted adjustable screen for superior wind protection, adventure handguards as standard and innovative ‘screen aero diffusers’, that deflect the air away from the rider and passenger without compromising the sporty stance, deliver an unprecedented level of aero protection for significantly improved touring capability and comfort.
Added to this is a new torque-assist clutch that eases the strain of both city commutes and long-distance adventure by reducing lever effort by up to 48%. The new clutch system is coupled to a slick six-speed gearbox to allow the rider to make maximum use of the available power whilst providing a comfortable ratio for top gear long distance cruising.
The introduction of a new ECU, ride-by-wire throttle system and switchable traction control opens up the new Tiger Sport to a host of rider-focused technology. This means the new Tiger Sport gives an instant response to rider input, with seamless power and a wall of torque immediately on hand.
Added to this are a choice of riding modes, enabling the rider to select the throttle response and traction control to suit the conditions. Available modes are Rain, Road and Sport, tailoring the system to optimise the bike’s performance and control. The Sport mode allows the rider to explore the maximum character and punch of the triple engine while Rain softens and reduces overall power delivery.
A new USB and 12v power socket allows riders to charge up personal equipment and help with the fitting of powered accessories. Cruise control completes the suite of original equipment rider aids while an all-new instrument panel, including two trip meters and a live fuel gauge gives clear access to all the information a rider requires, with the benefit of simple navigation through the displays.
The new Tiger Sport makes a stylish statement of riding intent. The Tiger Sport’s single sided swingarm gives a clean finish while completing the new look are revised engine covers, new mirrors and an aluminium billet machined spindle finisher.
The choice of striking livery from all new imposing matt black – with neon yellow detailing - or striking aluminium silver with red details, the Tiger Sport not only rides like a dream, it also looks incredible.
