In terms of design, the new Triumph Tiger 850 Sport is similar to its bigger brother. However, to help distinguish between the two, the Tiger 850 comes with new body graphics and two new dual-tone paint schemes, Graphite / Diablo Red and Graphite / Caspian Blue.
However, the body panels such as the front beak, adjustable windshield, fuel tank, radiator shroud and LED lights are all borrowed from the Tiger 900. The new Triumph Tiger 850 Sport will also offer a number of accessories to help with customization.
The new Triumph Tiger 850 Sport continues to have the same 888cc liquid-cooled in-line three-cylinder engine. It produces 85 bhp at 8500 rpm and 82 Nm of torque at 6500 rpm.
It is 10 bhp and 5 Nm less in performance than the Tiger 900. The engine continues to mate with the six-speed gearbox with slip & assist clutch.
Triumph says the engine on the Tiger 850 Sport is slightly retuned and offers more linear power delivery, making it a much easier riding experience.
The Triumph Tiger 850 Sport is available in two ride modes, Rain and Road. The Quick-Shifter will be provided by the manufacturers as an additional accessory on the motorcycle.
The motorcycle uses 43 mm upside-down forks at the front and mono-shock mounting at the rear, both from Marzocchi.
The front suspension has 180 mm of travel and the rear offers 170 mm of manual preload adjustment. The motorcycle handles braking via dual 320 mm discs at the front and 255 mm disc at the rear and supports dual channel ABS.
The new Triumph Tiger 850 comes with 100/90 and 150/70 tire profiles in 19-inch alloys at the front and 17-inch alloys at the rear. The new Tiger 850 Sport is said to weigh 2.0 kg less than the Tiger 900 GT.
Triumph also claims a mileage of 19.23 km per liter. It has a 20-liter fuel tank which makes long-distance travel easier.
