Test and review of the new Triumph Tiger Sport in 2016
A few days ago it was time. The first Test kilometers with my new (1 year old) Triumph Tiger Sport in 2016. The motorcycle replaces the 2009 Tiger in the Autodino/Motodino-stable. The predecessor – a 1050 ABS Tiger, I went through many years of happy and satisfied – so much that I auslies even the big Update with the Tiger Sport in model year 2013.
The English bike has a very fine Triple (three cylinder), in terms of tourism can be about a lot of kilometres on the road, the track but also on the house once the Sow out and his hunting instinct to Amateur Rossi’s on sports bikes.
With the model year 2016 Triumph has perfected the Tiger. She is and remains for me the Swiss army knife of the Impression to a reasonable price. If the 13.500.-€ SRP (new) to say.
Who likes to take motorcycle trips, so like to a couple or alone, the sporty type, who has to ride the Tiger Sport Test
My enthusiasm for this model is evident from the fact, that I ordered from a dealer in Dresden, and bought, without them, seen them live, let alone test driven. The price just fit the original Triumph Luggage system includ.
My Tiger Sport what is delivered during the “wonderful” Winter storm Egon in the back of a van. I had previously for almost 50.-€ a heavy, weather-resistant cover is bought, and believed, in order for the storm to brave, and may the Tiger protect. As you can see on the photo, that was a misconception. The Siberian Tiger is not yet extinct – a good thing!
The Tiger Sport in 2016 in this endurance test – the led by the way, for an indefinite period of time, and always complemented is renewed – 126PS. Performance is not always sufficient. Almost like an electric motor, the Triumph delivers three-cylinder.
The throaty tubes when you first start thrilled. Unfortunately, it is quieter, with a Warm engine
The new Tiger looks quality than the models before. So the rear muffler in brushed stainless steel has its share. But also the screws, as they are finely set on the engine, the Triumph Logo on the seat – everything works in harmony and not cheap hingefuddelt. The workmanship on the bike is bitchin’.
Easy to the Triumph Tiger Sport is 241 kilograms and so much had already been betrayed – it is so far the only drawback that I can be accused of this motorcycle. No. The Home Button belongs on the Handlebars and not into the Cockpit. But more on that later.
The Test Tiger now has three driving modes “Rain, Sport and Road”. In my first test, I’m trips so far only in the “Road mode”. The “Ride-by-wire” System is just awesome. The Anti-Hopping clutch I’m still in the course of the test. So, the traction and Wheelie control have to prove themselves in a first Test.
At my first exit of the fuel consumption of the new Tiger Sport what is 5 liters. A good value. So, the predecessor (6.5 liters).
My Tiger should have a proper stand – then it works, so with the Grease of the chain!
However, before it comes to Driving and we come to the actual Test of the bike, is built a little. A motorcycle chain requires a center stand. At least this is my opinion. Standard saves Triumph.
Clear. 250.-€ part of the cost of the main stand for the tigers as Original accessories. The size of the strokes, as the manufacturer/seller happy.
Although there are cheaper the main stand for the tigers in the accessories market, but correspondingly fragile. To the main stand various small fat supplied parts and a bag. The installation will take a maximum of half an hour, and can also be used by inexperienced “driver-for beginners” done.
I have already mentioned that the Tiger Sport is a “General purpose weapon”. But right next to the Tiger enclosure more species that are on athletic trips, and cavort, of course. Because, for example, would be the Yamaha Tracer 09, Kawasaki Versys 1000, Honda Crosstourer and the Suzuki V-Strom 1000. The Ducati Multistrada and BMW S1000XR let alone from the price of reasons, even outside.
Finally the first exit. At 4 degrees and km Stand of the 2,600
The ceremony of Starting the engine. Ignition key turn, the red pointer of the Rev counter swings up to the stop, various lights go on and I press the starter button. Can’t wait until the pointer comes back. You do not need to.
Test Triumph Tiger Sport In 2016
What a Sound. What a nasty Rattle. The power! No comparison to the previous model. I can’t hold myself back. I just have to turn the throttle. Oh, how easily the spinning. The handle, not the Triple is still cold. But the new handle like Butter. Because the Shave is to prepare the railway for twice as much fun. The clutch is supposed to go, so 40 percent lighter. Well, let’s see. Mount. Finally!
Wow. I come with the feet on the ground. Complete! A great feel to it. Gives more security. The 1050 ABS went at the Tiger, only with a full case-load and of the best socialist of them all in the back.
Click the first gear. You can hear it and the jerking you feel. At First nothing is changed. But then. The Second, Third, Fourth. Butter soft to the modified transmission of the new Tiger Sport in 2016, you can switch. This applies to both the High – and downshifting. Gorgeous!
The wheel of the new Tiger Sport is now four times adjusted. Without The Use Of Tools. This is, theoretically, during the journey, I test the in. As it seems, I would have to be exactly 2 inches taller. With my 173cm, my helmet hangs on completely lowered wheel seemingly right in the Wind tear-off edge. This is a little loud. But you still need to.
It will be interesting to test the noise of the windshield when riding with a Pillion. Here is the start-up of the Screens could result in less turbulences and volume of the helmet. In Solo mode’s like to live’for me, but with the windshield in the lowest position on the best – as I said.
While rolling through the place, it is striking to me that to me nothing stands out. The constant juddering (KfR) is finally snow yesterday. Once a turn. The turn signal button needs to be moved only Once. The automatic turn signal turn off after a few meters independently. Nice Feature. I already love the car!
I’ve just received the accessories of Luggage carrier by SW-Motech for my Tiger Sport in 2016. He looks very quality, at a cost of 144.-€ and model fits for the tigers, starting in 2013. So if you’re interested…
It doesn’t have a Topcase comes this Time. I can’t see them on my motorcycle. But the little Luggage carrier is enough for my new tail bag with 22 litre, or for the (new) Trekking roll bag 30 litre capacity.
The Garmin Zumo 345LM is so mounted on the new Tiger. Current I’ve got this Time on the horn. The mass on the frame. Pictures and Assembly tips in the near future.
For the first Time with a socialist on the road – 350-kilometre Test in bike Tour through the Odenwald
