Actual seat height per se is not a good measurement. The shape and width of a seat and the bike as as important as the height. A narrow seat can be higher than a wide seat and still be accessible to shorter people. That is one of the reasons why we all need to at the very least sit on bikes before we buy them (unless it is a Trials bike  :001: ).

Well, who'd have thought that, eh.  :492:

Triumph seem determined to brand everything a Tiger:
660 - Tiger
850 - Tiger
900 - Tiger
1200 - Tiger

The 660 is based on the Trident & its definitely more sports touring than an adventure bike, similar to the Versys or Tracer ranges. So is it really a Tiger?

Anything on stilts is a Tiger. Then it's a Sport or an XR if it's got cast wheels.
