Triumph Motorcycles has added the 2016 Tiger Sport in its adventure and touring motorcycle segment. The new Tiger Sport, with half-fairing design, which is ideal for the adventure motorcycle, also comes with high ground clearance.

The 2016 model features revised engine covers, new mirrors, new foot pegs, knuckle guard and a tinted, adjustable screen as standard. The Tiger Sport is powered by the 1,050cc three-cylinder engine introduced in the Speed Triple earlier this year. Though the power and torque figures are not released yet, Triumph has confirmed increased torque and improved fuel consumption.

The new Tiger sport features ride-by-wire throttle system that results instant throttle response. Triumph claims the new free-flowing exhaust not only sounds raucous but also contributes to improved fuel economy.

The new models also boast of riding modes, enabling the rider to select the throttle response and traction control to suit the conditions. Available modes are the Rain, Road and Sport. The Sport uses the full power of the motorcycle for spirited riding while Rain softens and reduces overall power delivery. It also comes with cruise control, multi-level traction control, ABS and a slip-assist clutch. An all-new instrument panel comes with a two-trip computer, a live fuel gauge and navigation in the display.

The new Tiger Sport will be unveiled at the London Motorcycle Show starting Feb.12. The Tiger range is one of the most selling segments for Triumph India, and the Tiger Sport can be expected in India this year.
