The Tiger 850 Sport is considered a budget model in the family of Triumph’s adventure motorcycles. It comes with a TFT dash, two rider modes, ABS and traction control. The suspension is non-adjustable, but very effective. There is no cruise control, which is understandable at this price point.

The bike is great for cruising around and commuting, but not that suitable for going off-road. Thanks to its large tank and good fuel economy, you will get up to 243 miles on one fill-up.
