Design

Visually, the Triumph Tiger 850 Sport is more or less similar to the Tiger 900 GT, the slightly higher-spec road-focussed adventure model in the Tiger 900 family. That's because the body panels, including the sharp nose, tall beak and frame are all shared with the GT Pro. What differentiates the Tiger 850 Sport are different body graphics, as well as two colours - Graphite and Diablo Red and Graphite and Caspian Blue. Unlike the 900 GT Pro, the red and blue parts are less on the 850 Sport's bodywork, limited to the beak, front fenders and the front part of the fuel tank extensions on the fairing. Like the other models in the Tiger 900 line-up, the 850 Sport has a distinctive and commanding stance, with aggressive lines and premium detailing. All lighting is LED.

Pricing & Rivals

It may be the entry-level model in the 2021 Triumph Tiger range, but the Tiger 850 Sport has been priced at ₹ 11.95 lakh (Ex-showroom), owing to the high-quality components and kit it comes with. While it may be designed for riders with less experience of high-performance machines, and has performance dialled down than the Tiger 900 models, the Tiger 850 Sport right now will compete with the BMW F 900 XR and the Kawasaki Versys 1000.

0 Comments

The Tiger 850 Sport is evenly priced with its rivals, but if it had a showroom price which were slightly lower, it would have certainly had better chances to become a game changer in the adventure touring category. It's still attractively priced, yet a tad expensive at that price point. Although it's still more affordable than the Triumph Tiger 900 GT, priced at ₹ 13.70 lakh (Ex-showroom), a lower price point around the psychological ₹ 10 lakh mark would have made it more desirable for customers.
