Triumph Tiger Sport 660 launched in India at INR 8,95,000 lakhs ex-showroom pan India

The Tiger Sport 660 has been present on the Triumph India website from the day it was launched internationally, indicating that the newest and the smallest Tiger shall make its way to India soon enough.


Today is that day. Triumph has launched the Tiger Sport 660 at an introductory price of INR 8,95,000 lakhs ex-showroom across India. Comparatively, the Trident 660, on which the Tiger Sport 660 is based, starts at INR 7,45,000 lakhs. The price difference is considerable, and it creates a clear distinction between the two motorcycles in the market.

Similarities and Changes Compared to the Trident 660

Affordable to keep, that's the idea of the Trident 660 platform

The Tiger Sport 660 and the Trident 660 share the engine, chassis, suspension, wheels, and brakes. Even the engine's state of tune is unchanged, according to Triumph. That is a good thing, actually, as the engine is already flexible, easy to manage, and is no less likable for a sports tourer.

That being said, the Tiger Sport 660 provides a unique riding experience away from its roadster sibling. And the similarities have created the base for a totally different motorcycle. The riding stance is completely upright, relaxed, and more comfortable, especially for long-distance riding. The Showa upside-down front forks are the same, but suspension travel is slightly longer at the front and the rear. Also, the Tiger Sport 660 has an 8 mm longer wheelbase at 1418 mm.

Powered by the proven and engaging inline-3 cylinder engine

The 660cc, DOHC, 12-valve, liquid-cooled engine remains absolutely unchanged as well, including the compression ratio of 11.95:1. It produces 81 PS of power at 10,250 RPM and 64 NM of torque at 6,250 RPM.


The fuel tank capacity is 17 liters compared to Trident's 14 liters. Like the Trident 660, the Tiger Sport 660 gets a ride by wire throttle, Road, and Rain riding modes. The smallest Tiger also gets switchable traction control along with non-switchable ABS. Braking duties are done by twin 310 mm discs at the front along with 2-piston Nissin calipers, while at the back, there's a 255 mm single disc with a single-piston Nissin caliper.
