Triumph have just given the world the first glimpse of the new Triumph Tiger Sport. We have been waiting for this for a long time now and it looks like Triumph has given the Tiger a hefty mechanical and design makeover for 2016.
The main upgrades to the new Tiger include a re-engineered 1050cc in-line 3-cylinder engine, which gets added torque but will also improve fuel efficiency. The bike will also get ride-by-wire throttle, adjustable traction control, ABS as standard, and there will be a selection of different rider modes to choose from. Other mechanical updates include a new clutch assembly with slip assist. The bike will also be much lighter.
Design changes include a new free flowing exhaust, an adjustable windscreen, new mirrors, newly designed footrests, and the sue of new panels and fairings to make the bike look sharper and more modern.
Triumph are pitching the new Tiger Sport as a bike that can do anything as a daily commuter or a weekend bike, but one that can also cope effortlessly with long-distance touring, too. It’s the very definition of a brilliant all-rounder.
Triumph has not released pricing or full specification details of the bike, but we expect the bike to be launched some time in the middle of this year.
