This thread has amazing potential to finally prove once and for all that ALL bikes have a few (at least one) small flaws.

Still nothing new?

I get the feeling Triumph has switched focus to the Tiger 1200 and this has been bumped to 2013 (at best). Generally speaking, we should know a lot more by now if it is a 2012.
