2016 Triumph Tiger 1050 Sport

Tougher, smarter 2016 Triumph Tiger Sport

The new Triumph Tiger Sport has now arrived in Australia with more growl, technology and features plus a hefty $1150 price rise.

The new 1050cc Tiger Sport costs $17,150 (+ORC), but includes substantial upgrades to the engine, electronic rider aids and extra creature comforts.

The engine has had a host of updates including a revised combustion chamber for more immediate torque and ride-by-wire throttle for better fuel economy and instant throttle response.

Fuel economy is improved by 8% and aided by the new, freer-flowing exhaust which Triumph claims has a richer sound.

The bike is also smarter thanks to a new ECU and the ride-by-wire throttle which allows the inclusion of three rider modes (rain, road and sport), multi-level traction control and cruise control.2016 Triumph Tiger 1050 Sport

Rider safety is increased by the addition of a slip-assist clutch to prevent rear-wheel lock-up on aggressive downshifting.

There is a new instrument panel with two trip computers and a “live fuel gauge” which refers to active fuel usage in litres per 100/km which provides average and instant fuel consumption readings, plus distance to empty.

Other changes include grippier footpegs, one-hand adjustable tinted screen, revised engine covers, new mirrors, a billet machined rear wheel spindle finisher and hand guards as standard.

It now comes in matt black or aluminium silver.
