The new Triumph Tiger Sport
The new 2016 Triumph Tiger Sport has been designed to redefine the meaning of versatility and deliver the best of all worlds. From real sporting prowess with more performance and thrilling riding characteristics, to mile-munching touring with enhanced comfort and capability for hassle free long distance riding pleasure.
Featuring 104 developments, including a next generation 1050cc triple engine, a suite of rider-focused technology, enhanced comfort and capability and a more dynamic and sporty character, the new Tiger Sport is not an everyday motorcycle.
Superior drive and control
The latest evolution of the Tiger Sport centres around an iconic 1050cc triple engine, featuring 104 developments to optimise power delivery; including new cylinder heads, inlet ports and piston design. Instant response, thanks to a new ride-by-wire throttle system, allows the rider to make maximum use of the engine’s signature drive in every situation, from highway cruising to cross-town commuting. The new, 38% freer-flowing silencer not only sounds richer but also contributes to 8% better fuel economy.
Technology for the ride
The introduction of a new ECU and 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 model 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 rider modes, enabling the rider to select the throttle response and traction control to suit the conditions. Available modes are Rain, Road and Sport, tailoring each 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.
Reduce the strain of riding
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 while providing a comfortable ratio for top gear long distance cruising.
Style that performs
Restyled and with all new livery available in subtle matt black with neon yellow detailing or striking aluminium silver with red details, the Tiger Sport makes a stylish statement for every-day, every-journey motorcycling. The Tiger Sport’s single-sided swingarm gives a clean finish while completing the new look with revised engine covers, new mirrors and a billet machined rear wheel spindle finisher.
Rider comfort reaches a new level of sophistication too – with restyled footpegs designed to give more grip and a new seat with embossed logo and stitching detail.
With a huge fan base worldwide, thanks to its thrilling triple-engine, great handling, excellent rider and pillion ergonomics and a large load-carrying ability, the new Tiger Sport has been developed to be better in every way for the motorcyclist who wants a single bike that does it all.
The new Tiger Sport will be available in Triumph dealerships from 23rd April, in time for the national dealer open weekend, TFEST.
