The new Triumph Tiger 850 Sport is here and it shares the same innovative T-plane crank as the latest generation Tiger 900 range, with its own unique 850 tune. Designed for a more accessible and manageable delivery of usable power and torque, the new 850 delivers enhanced all-round easy-riding versatility for commuting, touring or just having spirited two-wheeled fun at the weekends.
The T-plane triple crank and its 1-3-2 firing order give the 850 triple outstanding tractability at low rpm, which translates into an enhanced connection between the rider and the rear wheel, and responsive and intuitive road-riding performance. This new and unique engine configuration has an incredibly distinctive sound, with the throttle characteristics and feel of a twin lower down, married to the rich and responsive torque delivery of a triple in the mid-range and top end.
Peak power comes at 85 PS @ 8,500 rpm and peak torque is 82 Nm @ 6,500 rpm, with a smooth and linear power and torque delivery available from low engine speeds and across the rev range.
The responsiveness of the engine is complimented by the slip and assist clutch, which reduces lever effort and provides additional comfort on both long journeys and in urban environments.
The new Tiger 850 Sport features a dedicated, high specification chassis and equipment package, specifically tailored to maximise the new Tiger 850 Sport’s all round versatility and accessibility.
From the category leading Brembo Stylema brakes, to the high quality Marzocchi suspension, adjustable screen and comprehensive electronics package, with 5” TFT instruments, all LED lighting, 2 riding modes, ABS, and switchable traction control, the new Tiger 850 sport has been optimised for accessible road-focused adventure fun.
