With a brand name like “Triumph” and a product name like “Tiger Sport,” you would expect the new motorcycle from the UK company to be an adventurous ride. You’d be right. The 2022 Triumph Tiger Sport 660 was designed with an upright, adventure style of ergonomics with a bit of wind protection thrown in for added measure. And then there’s the 659cc triple engine—the same engine that shows up in Triumph’s new Trident, which the company claims is their “most successful and reliable engine platform” yet. This is definitely a bike for those looking to truly hit the open road, regardless of where it leads.
The Triumph Tiger Sport 660 comes on 17-inch wheels connected to a non-adjustable suspension. The front is benefited by a Show Separate Function Fork. The bike also features a Trident chassis that has been adapted by a longer swingarm and a strengthened subframe. The engine is controlled by a ride-by-wire throttle that riders can use to select between either Road or Rain power modes. Each of these modes have unique traction control capabilities. Triumph claims that the engine gives the rider 80 horsepower and 47 lb-ft of torque. The bike comes with a 4.5-gallon tank. When the tank is full, the bike weighs in at 455 pounds (425 dry). That tank may seem small, but it will give you a 230 mile range.
The bike also features a bright TFT display on the dash. Lights are all LED. You also get some touring aspects, like integrated pannier mounts in the tail as well as accessory side panniers. You can also get access to the MyTriumph connectivity for turn-by-turn navigation and GoPro control. The bike comes in graphite and black, lucerne blue and sapphire black, or korosi red and graphite (you’ll have to pay a little extra for that last one). You can be out adventuring on a 2022 Triumph Tiger Sport 660 for USD$9,295.
