Triumph Tiger Sport 660 suits Aussie learners

Australian power and pricing revealed 

Last updated:

Triumph’s new Tiger Sport 660 will replace the Tiger 850 Sport as the British manufacturer’s entry-level adventure-tourer.

And the good news for Australians is that Triumph Motorcycles Australia has restricted power to fit into the Learners Approved Motorcycles Scheme.

The rest of the world will get a bike with 59kW of power and 64Nm of torque which fits into European A2 licence requirements.

In Australia, the triple-cylinder Tiger Sport 660 has been limited at 35kW and 59Nm to suit learner riders which is a huge market here.Triumph Tiger Sport 660

It will arrive in the first quarter of 2022 priced from $14,690 rideaway in Lucerne Blue/Sapphire Black or Graphite/Black while the metallic Korosi Red/Graphite (red) paint will add $150.

Features include Showa suspension, Nissin brakes, Michelin Road 5 tyres, a 17-litre fuel tank. Height-adjustable screen and full LED lighting.

Technology highlights are a TFT display with My Triumph connectivity, switchable traction control, ABS, ride-by-wire throttle, slip-and-assist clutch and an immobiliser.Triumph Tiger Sport 660

Triumph also clams it all have a low cost of ownership which should appeal to newcomers with the lowest service workshop cost in the category, largely thanks to 16,000km service intervals.

Mind you, 16,000km may come up sooner than you think with a bike ready to go on tour with discrete pannier mounts and an accessory 47-litre topbox and panniers which can be colour coded to match the bike.Triumph Tiger Sport 660
