The Tiger 850 Sport is now the entry-point into the Tiger family and is priced at Rs 11.95 lakh. This motorcycle comes powered by the same 888cc three-cylinder motor as the Tiger 900 range.
Triumph pulled the wraps off the Tiger 850 Sport in November 2020 and has now launched it in the Indian market. Priced at Rs 11.95 lakh, the Tiger 850 Sport has now become the entry-point into the Tiger family. The 850 Sport now sits below the more powerful Tiger 900 GT, which is priced at Rs 13.70 lakh.
Powering the Tiger 850 Sport is the same 888cc three-cylinder motor but in this motorcycle, it has been detuned to produce 84bhp – a reduction of 10bhp from that of the Tiger 900. Its torque rating has dropped marginally too, as it stands at 81.3Nm. The transmission, however, remains the same 6-speed unit, which is supported by a slip-and-assist clutch system. The 850 Sport is based on the same chassis as the Tiger 900. In fact, it also gets the same 45mm Marzocchi upside-down forks at the front and a pre-load adjustable monoshock at the rear. The braking prowess comes from the same 320mm twin discs at the front and a 255mm disc at the rear. Dual-channel ABS comes as standard. In fact, the Tiger 850 Sport comes with two riding modes – Rain and Road – which alter the throttle response and the traction control system. In terms of features, the Tiger 850 Sport gets LED lighting, a 5.0-inch TFT display, an adjustable windscreen, 12V charging point, and more.
The Tiger 850 Sport competes with the BMW F 750 GS and the likes. So far, 2021 has been quite a busy year for Triumph, for the British marquee has already brought in the Speed Triple 1200 RS and the Tiger 850 Sport and is now getting ready to bring in the Trident in March.
