Tiger Sport

Wherever your adventure takes you, our new Adventure Sport bike excels. From touring and scratching through to hitting the apex every time on your favourite Sunday blast, the new Tiger Sport is a bike you will want to ride every day.

 

Overview

The 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.

 

Engine

The latest evolution of the Tiger Sport centres on the iconic 1050cc triple engine. Featuring 104 developments to optimise power delivery, which include improved cylinder heads, inlet ports and piston design, this 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 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 silencer not only amplifies the exhaust note, it sounds richer and also contributes to 8% better fuel economy compared to previous models.

 

Handling

The dynamic handling of the 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 switchable multi-level traction control and ABS, coupled to Twin 320mm floating discs in the form of 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 that the Tiger Sport offers.

 

Rider and Pillion Comfort

Whether you’re at the handlebars or enjoying the sights from the passenger seat, the Tiger Sport provides a superior and more comfortable ride. With improvements such as a tinted adjustable screen for superior wind protection, adventure handguards as standard, and innovative ‘screen aero diffusers’ that deflect air away from both rider and passenger, the Tiger Sport delivers an unprecedented level of touring capability.

Added to this is a torque-assist clutch that eases the strain of both city commutes and long-distance adventure by reducing lever effort by up to 48%. The Tiger Sport’s clutch system is coupled to a slick 6 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.

 

Technology

An enhanced Engine Control Unit (ECU), ride-by-wire throttle system and switchable traction control provides the Tiger Sport with a host of rider-focused technology. This means the 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 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 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.

 

Styling

The Tiger Sport makes a stylish statement of riding intent. The Tiger Sport’s single sided swingarm gives a clean finish alongside revised engine covers, and an aluminium billet machined spindle finisher.

The choice of striking livery from 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.
