Triumph Motorcycles India is gearing up for the launch of its highly anticipated Tiger Sport 660 ADV in the country. The new bike was listed on the Indian website a few weeks ago and the company has also started reserving the new model online for a token amount of ₹50,000. Shortly after today’s launch, the company expects to begin deliveries of the bike in the coming days.
The Tiger Sport 660 made its world debut in October last year. Some of the main features of the motorcycle include LED headlights, Bluetooth-enabled TFT instrument console, two riding modes – road and rain, switchable traction control and ABS.
Based on the affordable Trident 660, the Tiger Sport 660 uses the same main frame, engine and platform. However, the rear subframe is updated for the extra bike load it is designed to carry as an adventure tourer.

At the heart of the bike is the same 660cc three-cylinder engine found on the Trident. It was rated to deliver the same 81hp of power and 64Nm of torque. And the transmission includes a six-speed gearbox and an optional quick high/low selector.
It is likely to be introduced in India in three internationally available color choices – Lucerne Blue and Sapphire Black, Korosi Red and Graphite, and a minimalist Graphite and Black option.
Suspension duties on the bike will be handled by a non-adjustable 41mm USD fork and a preload-adjustable shock with a remote preload adjuster. It can also hold 17 liters of fuel, three liters more than the Trident model.
The Triumph Tiger Sport 660 will compete with the Kawasaki Versys 650 and Suzuki V-Storm 650 XT. It should cost somewhere in the range of ₹8.50 lakh to ₹9 lakh (old showroom).
