The Triumph Tiger 850 Sport made its global debut in November last year. Now, the British brand has introduced the new road-biased Tiger here in India. Triumph’s latest offering costs less than the Tiger 900 GT and, thus, is the new entry-level model in the company’s Tiger lineup.
Triumph Tiger 850 Sport Specs
For the new Tiger 850 Sport, Triumph has used the same 888cc inline 3-cylinder engine which powers up other Tiger models including the 900 GT, 900 Rally, and 900 Rally Pro. However, for the new motorcycle, this motor has been slightly detuned to produce 85 PS at 8500 rpm and 82 Nm at 6500 rpm. This has been done to make the engine much more usable in the low- and mid-rev range. In comparison, the same powerplant delivers 95.2 PS at 8750 rpm and 87 Nm at 7250 rpm in the Tiger 900 models.
|Type||Liquid-cooled, 12-valve, DOHC, inline 3-cylinder|

Triumph Tiger 850 Sport Features
While most of the features of the new Tiger 850 Sport have been borrowed from the other Tiger 900 bikes, Triumph has cut some corners to keep the price in check. For example, the 45mm Marzocchi USD front forks are non-adjustable and the rear monoshock offers only pre-load adjustability. Cornering ABS is also absent. Similarly, unlike the 7-in TFT display that is available in the Tiger 900 models, here we get a smaller 5-in unit. Riding modes have been reduced to two - Rain and Road. Traction control is available and can be switched off.
Some of the other key features include:
- Adjustable windscreen
- 20L fuel tank
- All-LED lighting
- Upright and comfortable rider ergonomics
- 830mm seat height
- 192kg dry weight
