Trails of India
Legendary British manufacturer Triumph is getting ready to launch its multipurpose motorcycle – Triumph Tiger Sport – in India. Originally revealed by Triumph in 2016, the bike is expected to launch in India in October 2018. With its 1050cc, 3-cylinder engine, the Tiger Sport has been engineered as a bike that meets all the needs of a motorist.
Trails of India eagerly awaits this launch because of the bike’s excellent reviews in international markets & varied capabilities.
The long-awaited Tiger is here
Triumph’s Tiger series has been one of the most popular line-ups ever since the motorcycle manufacturer re-introduced it back in 1992. The latest offering in the series – Tiger Sport – borrows its engine from Triumph’s Speed Triple Family. But this engine has been tuned differently for the Tiger Sport, it has the ability to produce 106 nm of torque and 124 horsepower. It runs on a 6-speed transmission. So, unlike the rest of the Tiger line-up which is considered a collection of off-road + on-road bikes, the Tiger Sport has been engineered as an adventure motorcycle that can literally do everything.
A long-distance Cruiser as well as an inner-city Motorcycle
Triumph claims this bike can do it all, from everyday trips to the office & weekend getaways to hardcore long-distance travel. It has three rider modes, namely Rain, Road & Sport. These modes, the company says, compliment all kinds of rides a motorist might take.
The Tiger Sport’s major difference from the rest of Triumph’s Tiger series is the 1050cc inline 3-cylinder engine that has been fine-tuned to increase torque & economize fuel consumption. Thus, making it a good choice for the everyday commute as well as traveling over large distances.
Keeping it Sleek, Sharp & Stylish
The motorcycle has been designed to fit in rather than stand out. But it’s tall stance, upright rider position & sharp stylings give it a ‘Ride of the future’ look. So even though the Tiger Sport is not as beautiful as other offerings from Triumph, the bike’s looks will certainly turn heads & grab eyeballs.
Perfect for the Purist
The bike has been manufactured for riders with experience, people who’ve seen it all and now need a bike that provides the best from all worlds. The Tiger Sport has the look of adventure, ease of a cruiser & the performance of a superbike. It will attract young bikers as well as seasoned veterans.
Some more standard features of Triumph Tiger Sport –
- Ride-by-wire throttle for smooth, ‘knife-through-butter’ like acceleration.
- ABS & switchable traction control to maintain ride balance on slippery terrains.
- Cruise control to maintain speeds and make for easier journeys.
- Slip-assist clutch to minimize wear-and-tear of the transmission system.
