Triumph Trident 660 and Tiger 850 Sport Reach U.S. Shores

by Daniel Patrascu from https://www.autoevolution.com British bike maker Triumph had a host of high-profile premieres this year. The most recent are the Trident 660, the entry bike in the world of Triple roadsters, and the Tiger 850 Sport, it too an entry-level. Neither is presently available at U.S. dealerships, but since that will change in early 2021, the company thought a promotional tour is in order.

by Pearl Daniels from https://www.rushlane.com The new Triumph Tiger 900 is set to be introduced in place of the Tiger 800 with lighter weight, slimmer stance and more powerful engine. Triumph Motorcycles has revealed the new Tiger 900. It is essentially a replacement to the Tiger 800, which will come in with an updated chassis, suspension, new design and engine which is now Euro 5 compliant. The Tiger 800 in India has appealed to the adventure biking fraternity in the country. It is among the best ADV bikes in the segment. And with this Tiger 900, Triumph aims to set the bar even higher, given the fact that it also comes in with a more powerful engine. Set for launch in India sometime later next year, the Triumph Tiger 900 gets a redesigned frame with a bolt-on sub frame, new aluminum swingarm, new LED head lamps, DRLs and a TFT screen. It also receives longer travel suspension from Showa and is expected to be lighter than the Tiger 800. Tiger 900 is narrower with a tighter fuel tank making it easier for rider to grip the motorcycle. It also receives an updated front fender, windscreen and sump guard which is made of plastic as compared to the aluminum finish seen on the current generation model. Triumph Motorcycles has also replaced the XR and XC variants of the Tiger 800 with GT and Rally models on the Tiger 900. Engine specifications on the Triumph Tiger 900 includes a new 888cc, inline, 3 cylinder engine which will comply to Euro 5 and BS6 emission standards.
