New Tiger Sport 660
on: 05 October, 2021, 05:22:09 PM
Not what I want but I think it is OK. Priced right! And more attractive than the 850 Sport which is just a cheaper 900 GT with the wrong crankshaft.

Is this the second or third thread on the 660 Sport ???

Anyway no not for me either but I do think it looks very competitive and should do well,

Guess we gonna have to start calling our bikes 1050 sports now  :001:
Are we ready for the influx of new members asking loads of questions about their new toys?

It looks good but its not a replacement for our bikes.  If they had something like that with the 1200 Speed Triple motor in it......
Triumph Centrestand & 3 box panniers.  TOR, dogbone out, Arrow race tune.  GIPro gear indicator.  SWMotech light mount with 3500 Komys.  SWMotech chainguard. Nitron R1.  Hand me down pointy indicators off son's Street Triple.

Something like that, looks like it's created a lot of interest!
It's a good looking bike, good to see some proper colours, although I'd not pay the premium on a red one.
I was watching the Bennets interview for the launch: Mr T claiming this is Triumph's first 'adventure sports' bike seems a bit odd, I think our Tigers qualified years ago.

Does look good if you happen to be in the target market.
On the adventure side I'm not sure how many water crossings I would try with the exhaust down there. Nice to see the rear caliper at the top of the disk though. I guess the first is "mid size" - still heavier than my old Fazer 1000 though and TBH not a lot lighter than the 1290  :005:
