Triumph will soon add a new variant in its Tiger range of motorcycles. The British company has recently teased the upcoming model called the Tiger 850 Sport which is scheduled for its global unveiling on 17 Nov.
Looking at the teaser images, it seems that the new Triumph Tiger 850 Sport would be based on the current Tiger 900 models, at least in terms of aesthetics. For example, it will come equipped with the familiar frowning LED DRLs that impart an aggressive appearance to the motorcycle. It is also very likely that even the side and rear profile of the motorcycle would be identical to that of the other Tiger variants.
The new Triumph Tiger 850 Sport would be a more road-biased product. This means that it should be able to cover longer distances with ease. While the exact details of the motorcycle have not been revealed by the company yet, we wouldn’t be surprised if Triumph would add a couple of features to make the new Tiger 850 Sport that much more capable on the tarmac.
As for the engine, it is likely to be powered by the same 887cc inline 3-cylinder motor that we have seen in the Tiger 900 models. It is a liquid-cooled unit that features DOHC and 12 valves. It has been tuned to produce 94 bhp at 8750 rpm and 87 Nm at 7250 rpm. Perhaps, Triumph might retune it to suit the character of the new Tiger 850 Sport.
The new Triumph Tiger 850 Sport would lock horns with the BMW F900XR, Yamaha Tracer 900, and the likes. More details of the motorcycle will be disclosed on 17 Nov.
