We test the 2022 Triumph Tiger Sport 660, an all-new middleweight sport-tourer based on the Trident 660. With a base price of $9,295, it goes head-to-head with value-priced stalwarts like the Honda NC750X ($8,699) and Kawasaki Versys 650 ($8,899).

Although much of the Trident 660’s underpinnings carry over to the Tiger Sport 660, including the liquid-cooled, 12-valve, 660cc inline-Triple, which produces 80 horsepower at 10,250 rpm and 47 lb-ft of torque at 6,250 rpm (claimed at the crank), as well as ride modes (Road and Rain), switchable traction control, and ABS, the sport-tourer gets steeper rake, more suspension travel, a small fairing, and a one-hand-adjustable windscreen. The rider triangle is more open and the seating position is more upright.

At 454 pounds, the Tiger Sport 660 is light, agile, and user-friendly. Although clearly built to a price (for example, the only suspension adjustability is rear preload), it has good build quality and doesn’t feel cheap. Triumph’s new sport-tourer is one of those bikes that hits the sweet spot – it’s the right price, it’s the right size, it has the right amount of fun and versatility, it has the right features (except for cruise control), and it can be outfitted with hard saddlebags, a top case, heated grips, and more.
