However, the dual-tone color schemes offered on the all-new tourer includes Graphite & Diablo Red and Graphite & Caspian Blue. Apart from this, the Tiger 850 Sport shares almost all the features from the Tiger 900. The list includes a narrow seat, large 20 litre fuel tank, adjustable windscreen as well as the LED headlamps.

Features

Feature-wise, Triumph Tiger 850 Sport comes with a 5-inch TFT display, distinctive daytime running light (DRL), 12V power socket, etc. Meanwhile, with the retuned engine the British bike manufacturer also offers two riding modes, precisely – Rain and Road. The riding modes help in altering the throttle while mapping the traction.

Suspension & Brakes

Braking duties on the Tiger 850 Sport works under a Brembo Stylemas 320mm disc at the front and a 225mm disc at the rear. Meanwhile, it comes with a dual-channel ABS as standard. The braking setup is similar to what Triumph offer on the Tiger 900. However, coming to the suspension setup, the all-new tourer offers a 45mm Marzocchi USD fork at the front and a monoshock absorber at the rear.

Engine

At the heart, the all-new Triumph Tiger 850 Sport comes with an 888cc inline-triple engine that produces 85Ps of peak power @ 8500 RPM and 82Nm of torque @ 6500 RPM. However, this is the same engine that powers the Tiger 900 but is offered with a different tune.
