Title: The new Tiger 660 Sport
Post by: ghulst on October 10, 2021, 09:24:43 AM
So, Triumph has taken to the 'new' middleweight adventure market with a new 660 sport. Undoubtedly the sudden release has got to do with Aprilia also launching a 660 a couple of weeks ago, but it is an interesting development. The 660cc market seems to be there. Where 800's were the middleweights first, I guess that 85hp on a 660 puts that firmly in the class the Tiger 800 was in at its launch. There are rumors of Honda bringing back the Transalp as well, so this is going to be a pretty competitive market segment that had little action besides BMW's 700GS.

Not seen one in the flesh yet, but from the photos I've seen, I quite like it without luggage.

A couple of observations gleaned from the Triumph configurator, the blue & graphite models are £100 less than a red one. Both front LED fog lights and moulded belly pan appear to be free, but everything else is extra, and to my mind, expensive.

Things I would expect to be included, based on my 955i, heated grips, hand guards and a luggage rack and the mounting plate required to mount it add an additional £500 almost. Mind you, looking at it from the side, with the top box, it looks like an after thought & seems to stick out quite a way. ti also seems to mount wuite high. Think I'd have to look at one to be sure

One of these with the bits I feel would be necessary, luggage, the Triumph module, USB charger, hand guards would come to well over £10,000.

I think the press images illustrate that Triumph really is setting this up for urban exploring more than anything else. It is a sports model, so it has a smaller front wheel and is aimed at riding fun. The Girly is in a different league altogether. I am not surprised those extra's come as accessoires. Heated grips have been an extra on bikes for ages. The 900 pro's have it, but few other bikes do. A luggage rack? Well, that would have been nice to include, but without it, the Tiger 660 looks a lot lighter and more nimble. Also, a lot of urban commuters use backpacks. ;)

I don't think we can compare this to other more rugged Tigers. However, I do think it is an interesting offering from Triumph.

Like the 1050, if it didn't have Tiger in its name, would it really be a bike of the current Tiger line?
Title: Re: The new Tiger 660 Sport
Post by: ghulst on October 10, 2021, 10:46:18 PM
Interesting question Phil. I guess it depends on how you define the "Tiger line". Though that is a completely separate discussion, we might as well give it a go. In the nineteen thirties the Tiger name was actually much more racing inspired than anything and that stayed that way until Triumph stopped making Tigers. When the Steamer came out as a Tiger, the whole concept clearly shifted to offroad capable bikes that could really carry the all-road flag for Triumph. But it obviously was all show, as Triumph never took part in the Dakar and just used the styling for marketing purposes. I do feel the Girly was quite a bit more road oriented already. The 1050 really took it the next step towards a new definition. Triumph seemed to have thought the same thing. After all, the 1050 Tiger Sport has been sold for years after the introduction of the Tiger 800 as well as the 1200. Both would be machines that you could take offroad. So, based on the history of the model name, I guess that the Tiger name is more synonymous with motorcycles with a higher and straight up seating position, with plenty of ground clearance, than it is with real offroad machinery.

But those are just my two cents. ;)

Post by: London_Phil on October 11, 2021, 01:13:41 PM
Agree mostly with above, but I feel the 1050 and 660 are really not part of the current Tiger Ethos.
More an Order Branch of the Tiger Family line, based on Animal Kingdom classification (Well it is, allegedly a Tiger)

Post by: ghulst on October 11, 2021, 04:49:13 PM

Tiger is a very broad range isn't it?  In fairness there has only been two Hinckley models that are genuinely all-road ready, the new rally pro and the 800xc's.  Yes, before someone says it I know you can force a xrt, Girly or a steamer down a track but there is a difference... :icon_rolleyes:  Even now, the GT outsells the rally pro despite the later's absolute brilliance.  Tiger's therefore are road bikes with a (varying) hint of all-road readiness.

I think it is a good thing Triumph are making more affordable bikes.  Even absolutely loaded 660 at £10,000 it is a lot more affordable than the £15 to £20k base bikes seem to be selling at recently.  A specc'ed up 900 rally pro is £14-15k odd (before you add turquoise paint, Mat-tiger!). A fully spec'ed R1200gsa now being £21,250.  You can spec a ducati multistrada way beyond this by simply looking through the catalogue and thinking about it.  Having a flick through just now, I got to £24k on the configurator before getting bored, seriously, how much machined billet aluminium can anyone want before they just buy a cnc machine themselves?

What is good about Triumph naming bikes 'Tiger' is that it means the owners can come on this website. :eusa_clap
Title: Re: The new Tiger 660 Sport
Post by: ghulst on October 13, 2021, 08:33:12 PM
I love the value for money on the Tiger Rally Pro. The options that that bike comes with as standard... But the 660 is a great entry-level bike that is affordable for most to get into three cylinder fun.

By the way, as I was going over your post, I am amazed at the price of the Ducati. I mean, I don't even like the V4S as much as I liked the 1250GS. ;) I actually thought they were closer together, but if you choose the V4S Sport, that thing is insanely priced. I did miss the KTM 1290 Adventure S in your list as that is about the same price. In fact, when you spec them with electronics packages and luggage etc. the BMW, the Honda AT and the KTM are not far off each other. The Ducati is in another realm. I am looking forward to their Desert X. Oh, and Ducati did introduce the V2, just to get the prices down. (Really trying hard to not do any cheap puns on the V2 name and it probably not making a big impact when it lands in the UK...)

But anyway, I think the 660 is a pretty smart step by Triumph.

Post by: Sin_Tiger on October 14, 2021, 12:40:28 AM
You're right guys, affordability has to be a better way for most as it's unlikely to be the sole mode of transport, the running costs will also be a great attraction. I'm still  :icon_scratch: about the lack of cruise control though.
Title: Re: The new Tiger 660 Sport
Post by: Nick Calne on October 14, 2021, 03:19:54 PM
Ghulst, it's only German V2's we need worry about.  Italian ones would break down before they get here.

With regard to other matters I have never had a bike with cruise control and am not sure I want one either as in the car it only tends to be useful on the motorway.  And I try not to ride on the motorway.
Title: Re: The new Tiger 660 Sport
Post by: ghulst on October 14, 2021, 11:19:20 PM
Well, if you don't want to use it, you don't have to. ;) I don't have cruise control on my GS, but I wouldn't mind having it. In fact, I rode the KTM with their adaptive cruise control and you could use that in many places. Well, not in the twisties, obviously. ;) But I did like it a lot. Also, I use my bike for a lot of commuting, so then having a cruise control is great for those motorway stretches. And it can save you money... Not as much on fuel as on speeding tickets. :D

Hi guys just joined the site. Have a blue Tiger 660 on order and will be my first Triumph. Have been searching for something to use on sole touring trips and longer day trips and the Tiger 660 hits the sweet spot for me. Ordered with the panniers, panniers bags, pannier case infil, usb, heated grips, hand guards, connectivity modulequick shifter, led lights and the colour coded belly pan. my budget was 10k and with discount on the parts and the free fitting it just goes over that so pretty happy :),

Looking forward to hearing how you find it, certainly looks good on paper, you might well be the test pilot that influences thinking / a few potential owners.

It's a lot of bike for the money in modern context  :thumbsup

I already got someone in another forum for Honda bikes interested and they got a deposit on! May need to set up some sort of comission with Triumph .... ;)

So I have a ferry booked to Northern Spain in June and will put it through it's paces then but have a good feeling about the bike and expecting it to perform how I need.

Went to take a look at one yesterday at my local Triumph dealer but they didn't have one in the showroom. It's possible that their demonstrator was out, should have asked really but the only salesperson on sirte didn't appear too interested in customers.

Maybe next time I'll have to ask.

So got my accessories order in and was able to get the usual 10% discount on them with free fitting. I actually had an order in with another dealer a month ago who promised a deal once accessories were priced on website but they then turned round and refused any discount and wanted over 300 quid to fit. Told them where to go and found a dealer more to my liking!

I could not find a photo without top box and with panniers so I photo shopped the top box out which is not in my order. Really liking the look of this bike!!

Yes the top box makes more sense if you need to filter often I can see your point. I am lucky enough to work from home and do not need to use the panniers unless doing a trip.

These will be the first hard cases I will have ever owned and am looking forward to having secure storage when I need to leave my gear on the bike.

You can't win on hard luggage. It is always dork mode/ pizza boy style with a top box, or too wide with panniers and running into things. And I have hit a lot of stuff with my panniers over the years!

Interesting to consider that the police tend not to use a top box...

Post by: ghulst on October 20, 2021, 10:32:53 AM
Here the police does use a top box for communication purposes. It holds their transmitters and radios. Ambulance bikes here in the Netherlands do you have top boxes with easy access stuff. I think there is something to be said for both. I just know that on every bike until this BMW I have now, I have always used a top box as main luggage. Very little else needed. On the BMW the vario top box cannot hold my helmet. Which is annoying. So I do need a side case if I want to leave it safely with the bike.

I had semi soft panniers on my previous bike and no problem with them sticking out too far as only 14L each....not very big. The panniers on the Tiger 660 look to sit a little under the bike and can fit helmet in each and at least do not seem to stick out further than the handguards but still will need to rethink getting through gaps I could previously sail through.

The cool thing about the BMW vario cases, is that they can easily be made slimmer by about 10cm. When you do that on both sides, that really makes a difference. With the Beemer I have not hit any cars. However, when I had my steamer with large Hepco & Becker cases, it did happen. I was on my way to Paris when I was filtering through traffic at Gent and I hit someone's mirror. That was a bit of a terrible moment. Fortunately the mirror was still in one piece and the car driver could not really say whether I hit him or he came to the left. So, we left it there and I sped off to Paris. But I can tell you that I pushed hard for quite some time, to make sure he couldn't catch up with me with second thoughts. ;)

Nope, not starting as I haven't seen one either. I have a massive Givi one which is quite convenient, but looks like you have mounted a giant bean on the back of the bike. ;) It is not on the bike now.

So it would seem that the blue bike shown on release has been giving to a Triumph dealer in Portugal. I contacted asking if they would send a photo showing what the support mount for the pannier attached to the footpeg looked like without the pannier and they were kind enough to send a pic. Good to see it looks fine and as I will only use the panniers twice a year it is easy enough to remove the supports if I want.

I think TC3 probably had the same idea. :)
So, when are you going to get yours in?
Mine should be at dealers in 6 weeks. If the salt is going down heavy on roads will delay pick up for a bit. All reviews seem pretty positive and thats good to know but nothing beats a test ride before parting with hard earned cash

I am pretty chilled and in no rush to be honest. Too much going on in life right now so not had much time to spend day dreaming about the new bike but thats ok as at least I got my order on early ... ok the first in the dealership...

Countdown then. :)

But I completely understand what you are saying. It has been so busy here, that I have not touched the KTM since I pulled the IMO and I cannot be bothered at the moment either. There is too much going on to think about it. It will come. ;)

So, you have ordered it without a test ride, but can you then still bail out when it does not feel as good as you had hoped, once it has arrived?

Yes ordered months ago with £500 deposit fully refunded if I dont like the test ride on the demo bike. They wont have no problem selling it in unlikely event I changed my mind. I was first to order before it was even on the UK dealer ordering system

No discount, and fitting charges? Sounds like the Triumph stealer near me ...

I think that is what is happening in the current market, especially for a new model that is attracting a lot of attention. ;)

10% on accessories and free fitting was the best I  could find
