Tiger Sport 2015

Overview

Sometimes you need a bike that can do everything – a perfect all-rounder. One day you need two-up touring, the next could be commuting. Sometimes you just want a back-road sports bike. The Tiger Sport 1050 meets many demanding roles.

Engine

The Tiger Sport uses the same characterful three-cylinder, 1050cc engine as the previous Tiger 1050, but peak power is 125PS, and peak torque is 104Nm (77lb.ft, 10.6kgm), and the engine is strong across its rev range.

Chassis

Frame

The Tiger Sport's frame has great ergonomics for shorter riders as well as passenger comfort. The bike has superb strength for a large maximum payload. This results in precision, engaging cornering and a “planted” feel to bring the best out of both you and the bike.

Handlebars

The Tiger Sport's handlebars have a sporty feel and to give you great feedback and control during sports riding.

Riding Position

We made the seat narrower at the front so the reach to the ground is easier. Your passenger still sits higher than you, though not quite so much, in line with the Tiger Sport’s sporting look.

Suspension

The fully adjustable suspension features Showa 43mm upside down forks with adjustable preload, rebound, and compression damping and 140mm of travel. The rear Showa monoshock has 150mm of travel and is adjustable for preload and rebound damping.

Swing Arm

The bike's single-sided swingarm is purpose-made for the Tiger Sport. Designed to look sporty but also allows the exhaust system to be tucked in tighter and so you get more luggage space.

Wheels and Tyres

The Tiger Sport is fitted with cast aluminium rear wheel and Pirelli Angel ST tyres. This set up is 1.3kg lighter than on the previous Tiger 1050 for improved agility.

Technology

The LCD instrument display has everything you could need including fuel consumption and average speed displays. And, it’s pre-configured for the optional Tyre Pressure Monitoring System.

Just in case your Tiger Sport attracts the wrong kind of attention, we’ve added a high technology security system. It detects a microchip in the key body and if it's not present the ignition system is disabled. This prevents a copy of the correct key being used to switch the bike on.

Styling

The Tiger Sport features a host of details that provide a real quality touch such as sculptured foot pegs, aluminium pannier mounts, and revised engine casings.

The bike has lightweight reflector-type headlights to reduce weight and improve lighting performance.
