The 2016 Triumph Tiger Sport has been released to the media in France.

The heavily updated 2016 Triumph Tiger Sport has been released to the world media in Nice, France this week, and the technical specifications of the bike have now been made available.

Recently, Triumph has been waiting until the press launch to announce technical data on new and significantly updated models.

The new bike goes on sale in the UK on the 23rd April, and is due here in Australia around the middle of the year.

There have been over 100 changes to the updated 1050 triple cylinder engine that now develops 94kW at 9,475rpm and 106Nm at 7,000rpm.

Triumph says mid-range power is up by around 5% on the previous model, and torque has been increased by 4%.

Fuel economy from the Euro 4 compliant engine is claimed to be around 4.4 litres per 100km despite the bike’s 218kg dry weight.

As we reported in February, the bike now has ride-by-wire throttle control, 3 selectable power modes, multi-level traction control, cruise control and ABS as standard equipment.

There are two colour schemes available, “matt jet” black and “aluminium” silver.

Triumph has advised there are over 40 accessories available for the 2016 Tiger Sport as well.

The 2016 Triumph Tiger Sport will have a recommended price of $17,150 plus on road costs.
