A Triumph Tiger 660 Rally may be in the works to complete the 660 triple lineup with an adventure model.
Triumph is the master of building different models based on an existing platform. Case in point: The 400cc singles, 900cc and 1200cc twin-cylinder Bonnevilles, the 850cc, 900cc and 1200cc Tiger triples, and the best-selling 660 triples.
The fourth platform has already spawned three models, namely the Trident 660, Daytona 660, and Tiger Sport 660. The Trident is a roadster or more commonly called a naked. The Daytona is a fully-faired sportbike. And lastly the Tiger Sport 660 is a sport-tourer. Thus, a Triumph Tiger 660 Rally adventure model is glaringly missing from the lineup.
The Hinckley, UK based manufacturer is aware of this. The 700cc adventure segment is being hotly contested due to great demand. Motorcycle buyers crowd to this segment as it sits between the smaller capacity bikes and the heavier and more expensive models. Rivals include the Aprilia Tuareg 660, Honda XL750 Transalp, KTM 790 Adventure, and of course, the Yamaha Tenere 700.
Fanning this rumour is Triumph Motorcycles Mumbai with a post in their Facebook page pointing to a reveal at the 2024 EICMA motorcycle expo. This may of course be over-enthusiasm and taken with with a pinch of salt, but Triumph is aggressive as usual in populating each segment. Only thing that remains to be seen if the final bike will have Rally and/or Rally Pro designations.
