Triumph Unveils A Super Premium Mid-Sized ADV Moto With The Tiger 850 Sport

With Triumph’s full-size Tiger 1200 range still nipping at the heels of Ducati’s Multistrada and BMW’s R1250GS lineups in terms of outright sales, the British firm is looking to lock-down other possible markets within the adventure motorcycle segment. And today, the Hinckley marque has finally revealed its plan to establish a stranglehold on the premium mid-sized adventure class with the new Tiger 850 Sport.

Sharing the same chassis, swing-arm, and liquid-cooled 888cc inline-three engine as the outgoing Tiger 900—though the latter of the three has been retuned for more low-end grunt—the Tiger 850 Sport is outfitted with top-of-the-line running gear and amenities that are typically reserved for full-sized premium models. This includes top-shelf Marzocchi suspension fore and aft, ABS-linked Brembo Stylema calipers, a 5” TFT display, LED lighting throughout, switchable traction control, a 12-volt port, multiple ride modes (including a rain mode), and an optional quick-shifter. Despite sharing its engine with the Tiger 900, the new 850 name is meant to highlight the bike’s mid-sized nature, while the “Sport” part of the moniker denotes its high-end and exclusive appointment. There’s also a 5.2-gallon tank that affords the Tiger 850 Sport a nearly 300-mile range. Slated to hit dealerships in January of next year, the 2021 Triumph Tiger 850 Sport starts at $11,995.
