Is a Triumph Tiger 660 Rally Coming to Challenge the Yamaha Tenere 700?

Rumours suggest that Triumph is working on an off-road 660cc adventure bike, with Triumph Mumbai fanning the flames on social media

Is a Triumph Tiger 660 Rally Coming to Challenge the Yamaha Tenere 700?

It’s fair to say that the last ten years or so have seen Triumph go big in the world of off-road and adventure bike riding. From the plethora (and fairly confusing range) of Tiger 800 models, to the latest 900s and 1200s and more recently its dive into the world of motocross with the TF 250-X.

There is a little gap in the current range though, and that’s something that a number of websites think that Triumph is looking to fill. While it has the Tiger 1200 and 900 Rally Pro at the head of the range, there isn’t anything in the sub-700cc adventure range from the Hinckley brand. We do, of course, have the Tiger Sport 660, but with its sports touring designation, road-biassed suspension and electronics, it could never be called a rival to bikes like the Yamaha Tenere 700, Aprilia Tuareg 660, or the KTM 790 Adventure.

That is a significant amount of sales that Triumph is seemingly overlooking, and that’s where a new bike comes in. Many are touting that Triumph is working on a new Tiger 660 Rally, and given that the British brand already has the aforementioned Tiger Sport 660 out on the roads, it doesn’t take too much imagination to see how it could shape up.

The Tiger Sport 660 that the new bike could be based on.

The 660cc inline-three from Triumph is doing a lot of heavy lifting for the brand right now, with engines now residing in the Trident 660, the aforementioned Tiger Sport 660, and the recently announced Daytona 660. With A2 compatibility available, the inline three-cylinder landing in a slightly more rugged off-road-ready bike sounds like a hugely enticing prospect.


Further fanning the flames of speculation, one of Triumph’s subsidiaries has shared a news story on this very subject. The Triumph Motorcycles Mumbai Facebook page shared a post last week pointing to a 2024 model launch and potentially getting to see the bike at this year’s EICMA Milan bike show. Take that as you will, but it sounds like a fairly safe bet to us that Triumph might be cooking up a new ADV bike right as we speak!
