Barely two months after Triumph teased fans with photos of a camouflaged sport-tourer, the Hinckley-based manufacturer officially unwraps the Tiger Sport 660. It will be available in Philippine showrooms as early as January 2022 with an SRP of PHP 555,000.
The new Tiger Sport 660 features a three-cylinder DOHC 660cc powerplant with peak torque of 64 Nm at 6,250 rpm and peak power of 81 PS at 10,250 rpm. These figures make the new Tiger Sport 660 the most powerful bike in its 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.
Reigning in this power is a sophisticated engine management system with ride-by-wire throttle for a precise and responsive feel, while the slick 6-speed gearbox has gear ratios optimized for fun and all-round everyday rideability.
In front, the Tiger Sport 660 is equipped with 41 mm Showa inverted forks, delivering 150 mm of wheel travel. These are perfectly matched with the Showa monoshock in the rear, with a dual-rate spring to optimize performance for solo or pillion riding. The monoshock also features remote hydraulic preload adjustability for tailoring the ride for a pillion and/or luggage.
Its 5-spoke, 17-inch wheels are lightweight cast aluminum, adding to the bike’s exceptional agility. They roll on Michelin Road 5 tires 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.
On the electronic side of things, the new Tiger Sport 660 features a panel with a digital and TFT display that should allow the rider to view the bike’s settings and aids, as well as control music, calls GPS navigation and even GoPro through its Bluetooth connectivity.
There are two riding modes for the Tiger Sport 660: Road and Rain. ABS and traction control are both fitted as standard on the Tiger Sport 660. Traction control can be turned off completely, if desired.
To further improve the riding experience, the Tiger Sport 660 is equipped with a slip and assist clutch and a span-optimized clutch lever for light and easy operation, reducing rider fatigue, particularly in urban riding.
