Officially debuted today, there isn’t much that we didn’t know about the 2022 Triumph Tiger Sport 660, save for maybe its price.
What that $9,295 MSRP does though is it frames the features we knew and expected from the mid-sized adventure-sport, and tells a story of a feature-packed, budget-priced machine, which gets us fairly excited.
Just as we anticipated, the Triumph Tiger Sport 660 comes 80hp (60 kW) and 47 lbs•ft (64 Nm) of torque on tap from the three-cylinder engine, with wheels that are 17″ in diameter and have the road in mind.
Like its Trident 660 cousin, the electronics are rudimentary but not barebones. There is a (tiny) TFT dash, traction control, ABS, two riding modes (rain & road), and the lighting is all LED.
The tubular steel perimeter frame helps keep the wet weight to 454 lbs (206 kg), which should be more than spry enough for most riders, while the 4.4 gallon tank should get the distance between pitstops to around 200 miles.
The suspension is very basic, even at this price point, with only the rear shock offering preload adjustment. Still, again at the price point that might turn-off as many buyers as one would think.
Arriving in February 2022, the handsome-looking machine has all the right ADV aesthetic despite its on-road manners. To help entice buyers, Triumph is touting a best-in class cost of ownership, with a 10,000-mile service interval.
And just in case one was looking for more adventure, an off-road variant is still expected to be forthcoming from the British brand. Stay tuned.
