The Triumph Tiger 850 Sport will be the new entry-level bike in the Tiger lineup

 

Triumph’s latest offering, the Tiger 850 Sport, will soon make its way to India in February 2021. It’s based on the Tiger 900, rather than the Tiger 1050 Sport. As a result, it shares its design and most of its underpinnings with the Tiger 900. Of course, being the new base model, certain aspects set it apart from its elder sibling. Here’s a look at what the Tiger 850 Sport has to offer, in detailed images:

Design-wise, there’s no difference between the 850 Sport and the Tiger 900, except, of course, the new dual-tone colour schemes.

The Tiger 850 Sport shares the same 888cc T-plane, inline-triple motor that powers the Tiger 900. The difference is, it’s been detuned to make 85PS/82Nm, as opposed to 95PS/87Nm in the 900. Moreover, the power delivery kicks in earlier at 8500rpm and 6500rpm respectively on the 850 Sport, as opposed to 8750rpm and 7250rpm on the 900.

You only have two rider modes: Road and Rain -- same as the base-spec Triumph Tiger 900 sold abroad. Cruise control has also been given a miss to keep costs in check. 

Other notable features include switchable traction control, a slip and assist clutch, an adjustable windscreen, and a 12V charging socket to juice up your smartphone.

It also features a smaller 5” full-colour TFT display rather than the 7" display on the tiger 900GT. 

Also favouring the Tiger 850 is its all-LED lighting setup with an LED DRL. The base trim for the Tiger 900 in comparison gets an LED headlight, tail lamp, and conventional bulb turn indicators. 

At 810-830mm, the seat is still fairly tall for average-sized riders. Having said that, it features a built-in adjustable two-position mechanism that enables riders to adjust the seat height by 20mm to their preferred setup.

No compromise has been made in terms of underpinnings either. You get 45mm USD forks and a monoshock from Marzocchi.

 

Braking duties are handled by twin 320mm discs up front and a single 255mm disc at the rear, mated to Brembo Stylema calipers.

Another key difference between the base Tiger 900 and the 850 Sport are the new Michelin Anakee dual-sport tyres.

 

The Triumph Tiger 850 Sport weighs in at 192kg (kerb) and has a fuel tank capacity of 20 litres which should be more than enough for long hauls.

 

Triumph will be offering two years of unlimited mileage warranty and a 16,000km service interval for the Tiger 850 Sport. Triumph never offered the lowest-spec Tiger 900 here in India. However, the new, more affordable Tiger 850 Sport will give enthusiasts the opportunity to hop onto the Tiger brand without really burning a hole in their pocket. Currently, the most affordable Tiger on sale in India is the Tiger 900 GT, at Rs 13.70 lakh. We believe Triumph may price the 850 Sport around Rs 11.50 lakh (both prices ex-showroom).
