Triumph Motorcycles has finally launched its latest sport-touring model, the 2021 Triumph Tiger 850 Sport. If you love the Triumph Tiger range but want something that’s more road-focused with agile handling and great triple-cylinder performance, the 850 Sport should be on your ‘To Buy’ list.
Compared to the beautiful 2020 Triumph Tiger 900 range, the 850 Sport was created to offer a more ‘tailor-made’ performance and specifications that are perfect for beginners and seasoned riders alike who are looking for something a bit more manageable yet exciting for everyday riding.
Fitted with an 888cc inline-three-cylinder DOHC liquid-cooled engine, the Tiger 850 Sport is specifically tuned to a more manageable 84hp at 8,500rpm and 82Nm torque at 6,500rpm (only 10hp & 5Nm less than the Tiger 900). Smoothness is the key for the new 850 Sport with linear power and torque delivery throughout its rev range.
Just like the 900, the 850 Sport also comes with premium parts like Brembo Stylema brakes, Marzocchi upside-down cartridge forks and gas pressurised, preload-adjustable rear monoshock (also Marzocchi), 5-inch TFT screen, selectable riding modes with dedicated throttle and traction control maps, all-LED lights, slipper & assist clutch, ABS, traction control, and many more.
The 2021 Triumph Tiger 850 Sport will come in two dedicated graphic schemes – Graphite/Diablo Red or Graphite/Caspian Blue. Further customisation is available thanks to its wide range of genuine Triumph accessories. As for pricing, the UK market can get one at only £9,300 (around RM50,597) which is a very competitive range.
