Triumph revealed a facelift for its Tiger Sport crossover. It has a more powerful engine, new rider aids and minor design updates.
The new features:
- Same 1050 engine but more torque and fuel economy
- Ride-by-wire throttle, rider modes and cruise control
- Traction control and standard ABS
- Slippery clutch
- Adjustable screen, new instrument panel
The 1050 triple engine is the same, but it was updated to meet new Euro 4 regulations. Moreover, Triumph says it has an improved torque and better fuel economy due to a completely revised combustion chamber. The exhaust sounds better, according to Triumph, and offers a better fuel consumption.
The new Tiger Sport offers ride-by-wire throttle which enables faster response, cruise control and three riding modes (Rain, Road, and Sport). Each riding mode gives a new set-up to the throttle and traction-control.
The updated styling includes new livery, a clean finish swingarm, revised engine covers and new mirrors. The footpegs offer better grip, the tinted screen is adjustable while the “aero diffusers” are deflecting the air away.
The new Tiger Sport main competitors are Kawasaki Verys 1000 and KTM 1050 Adventure. Among other similar bikes we can mention BMW S1000XR, Ducati Multistrada or Yamaha MT-09 Tracer (FJ-09).
