2021 Triumph Tiger 850 Sport First Look
Triumph has today released details on the new Tiger 850 Sport, aimed at being the entry-point for potential riders into the Tiger adventure/sport touring family.
The 850 Sport is actually not an 850 at all, rather, it uses the same 888cc inline three-cylinder powerplant of the Tiger 900, just with different ignition timing and throttle mapping.
The power of the not-an-850 888 is 84 hp at 8500 rpm and peak torque comes in at 60 lb-ft at 6500 rpm.
The Tiger Sport gets a similar chassis to that of the 900, with Marzocchi forks and Brembo Stylema calipers—not bad for an entry-level machine, and you get a five-inch TFT display, two riding modes of Road and Rain, switchable traction control, and ABS (not cornering ABS, mind you), LED lighting front and back and a 12V power socket for charging your phone.
The Tiger 850 Sport will set you back $11,995 and will be in dealers by late February 2021.
