Triumph Tiger Sport 660 Testing Photos Burst Forth From Hinckley
When Triumph first unveiled the Trident 660, it was met with thunderous applause and excitement. Here was a beautiful, accessible, affordable naked middleweight from Hinckley—what wasn’t to love? Sure, it wasn’t going to light your hair on fire with insane speed, but that’s not what it was built for in the first place. You have to judge a thing on its own merits, and the Trident 660 stacks up quite nicely in that regard.
Naturally, Triumph has quietly been working on other uses for that 660cc triple. On August 24, 2021, the folks at Hinckley unveiled their first testing phase photos of the upcoming Triumph Tiger Sport 660. It’s under camouflage, of course, but you can still get a glimpse of the general direction in which they appear to be taking this bike.
For starters, that camouflage itself is honestly pretty cool to look at, and would probably make a great graphics scheme that people would pay money for if Triumph was to make it available as an option. Not content to simply use normal camo like everyone else, Triumph instead took black and white versions of its triangular T logo and threw them together to create a repeating pattern with no negative space. It looks more like wrapping paper than camo, and maybe that’s the point.
