Parts for this model are quite limited. Either you import them & pay customs or buy at very high prices from the vendors here.
BHPian nbhat24 recently shared this with other enthusiasts.
I recently posted my review on Tiger Sport 660 after completing 10,000kms. Here I’m posting on accessories available for the same. I hope it helps other TS660 owners and those who are planning to buy one.
Triumph recently hiked the prices of TS660 models. A 9.34L ex-showroom from 8.95L for the colours other than red and 9.47L for res one from 9.08L.
There are about 30-35 Tiger 660s in Bengaluru itself. I wonder how many are there totally in the country! There’s a very low response on accessories available for this particular model. Either you need to import and pay the customs or buy at very high prices from the vendors here. I thought of sharing about accessories I bought and installed which could help people. I’ll straight away skip to the accessories.
Accessories/additions I’ve got on my baby Tiger:
- Dash protector (odo display protection)
- Engine crash sliders
- Touring Visor (taller & wider than stock)
- Radiator guard
- Aux lights
- Hand guards
- Top rack, top box
- Front mudguard extender
- Paint protection film (PPF)
- Rim stickers
1. Dash protector
I bought the dash protector from here. This was not a hard screen guard. It was basically PPF. Application process was also the same as that of PPF. Application is not as easy as they mention on the website. But it’s worth the price, applied a year ago and it’s still looking clean and protected the display very well till date.
Pricing is just fine. I spent 1.2k on this.
2. Engine crash sliders
There are only a few companies with crash guards & sliders for this particular model. Even Triumph offers only an engine frame protector which I don’t prefer.
Currently, in India, buyers can get engine crash guards from Sw-motech, Motousher & PUIG. A few vendors import and sell these accessories. Can’t place the orders directly on the company site though. Not sure if any vendor is importing Evotech sliders yet, they’re available in foreign markets. I’ve been following the Philippines pages where they have a very good number of options for various accessories for this bike.
Price for crash sliders starts from 20k and goes upto 50k for the available ones, as of now. I bought the PUIG sliders from a vendor in Delhi. Although it said “Out of stock” for TS660, the same one as that of Trident 660 is compatible with TS660. Hence, I mentioned Trident 660 while buying from that vendor and it was delivered within a week after placing the order. These sliders cost me 20k.
Let me tell you again it’s not as easy as it looks to install these! You need to loosen the radiator first to access the nuts & bolts which are inside the hollow pipes coming from the chassis/body! I felt strange about this design. I spent almost 2hrs to fit these sliders. It can be a “DYI” stuff if you have time and patience. Let’s move on to the next one.
3. Touring visor
If you ask me, “Wasn’t the one from the company sufficient?”, I would say, “Yes, it was, with an extender probably”. However, as I mentioned in my previous write-up, the front plastic quality is very poor and there’s too much noise and vibrations coming from the visor junctions and odo joints plus the existing visor wouldn’t completely block the wind blast.
I was continuously checking & following up on the new visors and finally found one from PUIG in Europe. But there was no export until last month. I finally was able to place an order at a shop in the UK as they were ready to ship to India. I paid 19.5k for the new touring visor plus 5.5k for customs at the time of delivery.
Process is simple and hassle-free. You just have to place the order by paying the vendor. When it arrives in India, India Post takes over the order and delivers it to you by collecting CASH for customs. They’ll call in advance so that you can keep the cash ready. Currently, GIVI is gearing up to sell their touring visors for this bike. Do check and compare if & when you plan.
PUIG offers two types of visors as of now, Sport screen and Touring screen with three different colours, Smoke, Dark smoke and clear for touring screen. I placed an order here.
They also have a frame which supports the front plastic portion behind the visor because of which I’ve experienced a huge reduction in vibrations. The PUIG visor is 110mm taller than the OEM visor and wider too. I’ll show you the difference in stock and PUIG visors.
Fitting this visor is easy, DYI. You just need the right tool for it and a torque wrench in case you’re too conscious about it.
4. Radiator Guard
Evotech was the first supplier of radiator guards for this bike priced at 10k. Quality is good too. Placed an order right away after buying the bike. This guard is compatible with Trident 660. That’s one of the reasons why it was readily available when I bought the bike in 2022. Currently, there are some additions in the market and price starts from 6k onwards. Google the links to buy the same.
Fitting is easy again but takes a bit of time as you need to remove the side bottom panels which are mounted on either side of the radiator to access the bolting space. It’s a DIY too.
5. Aux Lights
As you’re aware, there’s a huge competition in the Indian market for aux lights for vehicles. I personally liked Maddog Lights which is a Bangalore company. The lights are too good and high-quality materials/components are used. Pricing is good, starting from 3.75k to 10k. I had Maddog Scout-x mounted on my Fz25 earlier and they’re pretty good lights. I bought the same again for Tiger and it’s been serving well.
As I mentioned in my previous post, there’s no proper provision for mounting the aux lights on this bike. I had to buy the clamps for the forks since I didn’t find any other option. Again, clamps from Maddog were not compatible as the diameter of the forks is high compared to that of the clamps. Mounting the lights was easy but need to adjust the alignment properly so that they don’t touch the front mudguard or side panels on either side when the handle is turned. Scout-x lights cost 5.75k plus another 600 for the switch. I didn’t buy the wiring harness, instead, I opted for normal wiring to complete the circuit.
6. Hand/knuckle guard
Hand guard by Triumph is of very poor quality! A simple fall can completely break it. It’s too delicate compared to many other Chinese quality guards available in the market. The one I’m using is from Acebis and bought from Amazon. This is not for wind protection, this is for clutch/brake levers protection. These are of very good quality and don’t spoil the look of the bike as well. It recently took a fall but no damage to the clutch lever. Price is around 1.5k-2k, totally worth it.
7. Top rack, top box
Top rack from OEM looks just fine and I bought the same without doing much of research. Loading capacity is mentioned as 6kg which gets violated almost every time during the trip. Price is 13-14k. There’s a catch! OEM top rack is not directly compatible with the SHAD mounting plates. However, you can always make it compatible by buying another plate and sandwiching it in between OEM top rack and SHAD mounting plate. Yes! That’s what I did, I bought a mounting plate from Amazon which is actually compatible with Himalayan and XPulse and made 2 holes on it to fit it on OEM top rack. That was easy! Now it was all about adjusting and aligning SHAD mounting plate with the new plate. Process was simple and clear! Fitted properly without any major issues.

8. Front mudguard extender
I’m very much disappointed by the short mudguard given by the company because of which the radiator fills with dirt every time I ride. Keeping it clean was a challenge until I got the extender fitted. There are imported extenders available for this bike whereas universal extenders from amazon at low prices serve the same purpose without any issues. Hence, I thought of saving some bucks and buying from Amazon. Cost was just around Rs.300/- for a universal extender.
Making simple 2 extra holes on the OEM guard doesn’t require any rocket science. It fits well without touching the radiator on bad roads which is important.
9. Paint Protection Film (PPF)
Is protecting the vehicle with all the accessories sufficient without keeping its body safe from all kinds of contamination, minor scratches, swirl marks etc? Answer is definitely a, “No”. I did some research and thought of getting the PPF done which self-healing, anti-yellowing TPU PPF. There’s huge competition in this sector and many options in Bengaluru. But choosing the right brand and installer is a must and I chose CARJAX auto care. They did a good job on my TS660. A 200microm thick, self-healing PPF was done in June 2022, just 15 days after I bought the bike and it looks new every time I wash even now!
10. Rim sticker and beautification
Last but not least, in addition to the beauty of the bike. Thought of getting some stickering done. Added a bit more beauty to the baby Tiger.
My upcoming addition will be front fork protectors. OEM costing is around 4-5k whereas lower price options are available in the market.
I hope I’d be helpful with this write-up to some of the people who are interested in either buying or improvising by keeping this as a reference.
Post query, if any, will be happy to help/assist. Cheers!
