The 2023 Triumph Tiger 850 Sport: A Tiger With Trimmed Claws?

When you are a famed motorcycle builder of top-rated Adventure bikes, what makes sense when you want to offer riders the best of your motorcycle lineup, but for a little less money? Triumph solved this by building the Tiger 850 Sport.

First glance may lead a person to think this bike is simply a detuned Tiger 900, but that would just miss the point of this machine. The Tiger 850 Sport uses the same 888cc T-plane triple crank engine found in other Tiger models but tuned with 83 hp and 60 lb-ft of torque. The unique tuning is all about making the 850 Sport an improved machine for on-road touring. The torque stays above 50 lb-ft from 3400 rpm and is delivered in a smooth accessible way, while still retaining the unique Tiger exhaust note.

To achieve cost savings Triumph did need to remove some of the high dollar features found on other Tigers, but it is what is still here that is worth noting. The brakes are Brembo Stylema, Marzocchi 45mm upside-down front fork, Marzocchi adjustable rear shock, slip and assist clutch, road and rain riding modes and the latest in Triumph ABS and switchable traction control technology.

Everything Triumph has done with the Tiger 850 Sport is focused on delivering top level touring performance.
