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.

Just like the Trident 660, launched to international acclaim last year, 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 new Tiger 660 delivers the capability, performance, handling and style needed to introduce a whole new generation of riders into the Triumph brand.

 

Triple engine performance advantage
The first triple cylinder engine in the category, and the most powerful – 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 64Nm at 6,250rpm and peak power of 81PS at 10,250rpm make the new Tiger Sport 660 the most powerful bike in the class, guaranteeing great acceleration in any gear, even when carrying a pillion or progressing swiftly through traffic. It delivers the perfect balance of thrilling useable performance from low down in the rev range, all the way to the red line.

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 6-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. 

The engine is fully Euro 5 compliant, delivering low emissions as well as excellent fuel economy, and can be adapted to meet European A2 license regulations through an easily reversible accessory conversion kit.

 

Designed to set the new category benchmark for handling
The new Tiger Sport 660 has been designed to deliver Triumph’s trademark dynamic, agile and comfortable handling. Perfectly balanced and easy to control, with precise steering aided by lightweight aluminium tapered handlebars, the new 660 delivers a commanding and confidence-inspiring ride. 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 renowned 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 5-spoke, 17” 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 2-piston sliding calipers with twin 310mm front discs, controlled by the span-adjustable brake lever.

 

Long-distance touring capability
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 whilst maintaining the clean styling of the rear bodywork when riding without luggage. For additional luggage capacity an accessory 47-litre top box is also available, which can securely accommodate two full face helmets. The panniers and top box can also be colour coded to match the bike.

 

Class-leading technology for maximum safety and control
The new Tiger Sport 660 is equipped with a category-leading standard of rider technology, including the new multi-functional instruments with TFT display, a first in the class, which provide 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 class-leading are the two high-specification riding modes, 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-optimised 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.

 

Dynamic new Tiger Sport 660 character and distinctive style
The new Tiger Sport 660 beautifully integrates practicality with contemporary adventure sports design. With a confident and distinctive poise, 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.

Riders can choose between three attractive colour schemes: the contemporary Lucerne Blue and Sapphire Black, the vibrant Korosi Red and Graphite with distinctive sporty graphics, or a minimalist Graphite and Black option.

 

Lowest cost of ownership in the entire category
As well as being competitively priced given the category-leading level of specification, the new Tiger Sport 660 benefits from the lowest cost of ownership in the category. This includes its 10,000 mile or 16,000 kilometre (or 12 months) service interval plus its 2-year unlimited mileage warranty, which can be optionally extended by 1 or 2 years. This is made possible thanks to the extensive testing program that underpins Triumph’s most reliable engine platform.

This high level of reliability is directly reflected in the Tiger Sport having the lowest workshop cost in the category. Over a 3-year service timeframe, the Tiger Sport 660 requires the lowest level of workshop time in the category, at just over 8 hours, making it 30% more cost effective than its competition in terms of labour costs. Plus, the Tiger Sport 660 has the lowest maintenance parts cost over three years – 17% cheaper than the closest competitors.

 

Accessible individuality: Genuine Triumph accessories
An extensive range of over 40 genuine Triumph accessories are available for the new Tiger Sport 660, allowing customers to add even more practicality, technology, comfort and protection to their motorcycle, as well as versatile luggage options. All genuine accessories have been engineered alongside the motorcycle itself and all are subjected to the same rigorous quality and durability testing processes.

As well as the My Triumph Connectivity system, accessories include the Triumph Shift Assist up and down quickshifter, heated grips, under-seat USB charger, scrolling indicators, and a tyre pressure monitoring system.

Luggage options include the all-new fully integrated panniers and two-helmet top box, both of which can be colour coded to match the motorcycle, plus a lightweight cast aluminium luggage rack and fully waterproof roll bag.

For added protection, riders can add frame, engine and fork protectors, and for maximum security, an alarm and tracker are available (market specific) along with a range of bike locks.

All genuine Triumph accessories come with the same two-year unlimited mileage warranty as the motorcycle itself.
