DEDICATED 850 TRIPLE ENGINE SET-UP

The new Tiger 850 Sport shares the same innovative T-plane crank as the latest generation
Tiger 900 range, with its own unique 850 tune. Designed for a more accessible and
manageable delivery of usable power and torque, the new 850 delivers enhanced all-round
easy-riding versatility for commuting, touring or just having spirited two-wheeled fun at the
weekends.

The T-plane triple crank and its 1-3-2 firing order give the 850 triple outstanding tractability at low rpm, which translates into an enhanced connection between the rider and the rear wheel, and responsive and intuitive road-riding performance. This new and unique engine configuration has an incredibly distinctive sound, with the throttle characteristics and feel of a twin lower down, married to the rich and responsive torque delivery of a triple in the midrange and top end.

Peak power comes at 84 HP @ 8,500 rpm and peak torque is 60.5 lbft @ 6,500 rpm, with a
smooth and linear power and torque delivery available from low engine speeds and across
the rev range.

The responsiveness of the engine is complimented by the slip and assist clutch, which
reduces lever effort and provides additional comfort on both long journeys and in urban
environments.

 

HIGH SPECIFICATION EQUIPMENT

The new Tiger 850 Sport features a dedicated, high specification chassis and equipment
package, specifically tailored to maximise the new Tiger 850 Sport’s all round versatility and accessibility. From the category leading Brembo Stylema brakes, to the high quality
Marzocchi suspension, adjustable screen and comprehensive electronics package, with 5”
TFT instruments, all LED lighting, 2 riding modes, ABS, and switchable traction control, the
new Tiger 850 Sport has been optimised for accessible road-focused adventure fun.

Brembo Stylema brakes

The Tiger 850 Sport features category leading Brembo Stylema® brakes for superior
stopping power. These are lightweight, compact, carefully sculpted and high performing
calipers, with reduced volume around the pistons and brake pads, reducing the internal
space occupied by brake fluid, and delivering a more immediate braking response.
Increased airflow around the brake pads also helps the calipers to cool quicker.

High specification Marzocchi suspension

The Tiger 850 Sport has a high performance suspension set-up, with premium Marzocchi
components front and rear. 45mm Marzocchi upside down cartridge forks, with 180mm
travel, combine with a gas pressurised monoshock rear suspension unit with manually
adjustable preload and 170mm rear wheel travel, to deliver a sporty yet comfortable ride.

 

CLASS LEADING ERGONOMICS

With a narrow seat, ergonomically optimised footrest position, and angle adjustable
handlebars the new Tiger 850 Sport has a comfortable upright riding position designed for a high level of rider confidence and control, when static and on the move. It also features a
built-in easily adjustable two-position seat height mechanism, which enables the rider to
change the seat height by ¾ in (20mm) to their preferred set-up.

Making every journey even more comfortable the Tiger 850 Sport comes with a large 5.28
Gal (20 L) fuel tank and an adjustable screen, delivering superior wind protection with a
simple single-handed adjustment.

Lightweight modular frame

Featuring the new generation Tiger’s modular frame with bolt-on aluminum rear sub-frame
and bolt on pillion hangers, the new Tiger 850’s combination of lightweight frame, light
weight engine, high specification suspension and premium Brembo brakes ensures
exceptional handling in all riding scenarios.

 

HIGH SPECIFICATION TECHNOLOGY

The new Tiger 850 Sport comes equipped with a tailor made set-up of high specification
technology as standard, all selected for enhanced user-friendliness, confidence inspiring
riding and safety.

5” full TFT display

The Tiger 850 Sport features a high contrast 5” full TFT display, for excellent visibility in all
light conditions. Key information is presented to the rider in a clear and intuitive way.

Two riding modes

The two riding modes, Road and Rain, adjust the ride-by-wire throttle response and traction control settings for enhanced control in all riding conditions. The traction control is switchable and may be deactivated independently via the instrument menus if required.

All-LED lighting

The headlight, tail-light and indicators on the Tiger 850 Sport are LED powered for
maintenance-free active safety.

12V power socket

The Tiger 850 Sport also comes equipped with a 12V socket that allows mobile devices to
be charged while riding.

 

DISTINCTIVE TIGER STYLE AND ATTITUDE

The Tiger 850 Sport’s bodywork has a focused and aggressive adventure style, with a
narrow stand-over width, visually light front end and dominant fuel tank design and size.
With all of the class-leading level of finish and detailing from the latest generation Tiger
range, the new 850 Sport comes in two exciting paint options, Graphite and Diablo Red
or Graphite and Caspian Blue, each incorporating contemporary new Tiger 850 Sport
graphic schemes.

 

DESIGNED TO PERSONALIZE

A range of over 60 genuine Triumph accessories are available for the new Tiger 850 Sport,
all designed alongside the bike itself to ensure seamless integration, and the same exacting
standards of manufacturing quality and finish.

There are two luggage range options available, both created in partnership with Givi, with
the Trekker side-opening panniers with 13.7 Gal (52 L) twin helmet top box, and the
Expedition top-opening aluminium panniers, with matching 11.1 Gal (42 L) top box.

Additionally, the Tiger 850 Sport accessory range covers options for added comfort,
protection, capability, style and security. For even greater reassurance, all of the Genuine
Triumph Accessory range comes with Triumph’s 2 year unlimited mileage warranty.
