Got the call tonight. Mine's at the dealer, ready in a couple of days. They want to hold onto it to display it at their open house on Saturday. I was in the middle of something and couldn't talk. Planning to have a chat with them tomorrow to see when I can take it out for a spin.

Canandaigua Motorsports. They've got my Launch Model and are supposed to have or be getting a standard model as well. Last I heard it wasn't spoken for.

I know quoting your own post is a not cool, but I rearranged my schedule so I can pick up my Explorer tomorrow AM. The only bummer is that I have to haul it home, as I don't have a ride there. :(

I will take a short ride at the dealer & a longer ride tomorrow evening!

Dammit, of course I'm not able to get it for 2 more days due to work commitments. (unless I can come up with an excuse, think I'm feeling the flu coming on )

Quoting yourself is perfectly acceptable when its news like this. Enjoy the new bike and report back with initial impressions.

I heard this same information from the dealer at one point, but the bike was delivered to them yesterday with all the launch items already installed. Only waiting on the tank bag (next week) and panniers (mid-May) to complete it as I spec'd it, with add'l labor only for installing those last two items.

FWIW, for a while I was also hearing claims that there was to be no "Launch" bike or "SE" model in the US. Also seems to have been bad info. I also heard about a dealer add-on kit, included heated seat and grips, and maybe some other items that they were supposed to get as a special promotional item, but details were sketchy.

Going to go ride it in an hour or so.

He said the launch bikes come with the launch pack in the create and are demo bikes only. He said the manufacture sells them the launch pack to display and gives them 10% off parts. He also said all launch packs has to be assembled at the dealer and are not sent on the bike from the factory......not sure I believe that.

If you go on Triumphs site and use the create your own option it's lists the U.S MSRP at $15,699 then you add your accessories. I built one with almost every accessory expect the painers and it came to an additional $4,089 not including labor.

Just wondering if anybody has heard specific info about the differences between the 800 & 1200? I know they are completely different engines, but you would think they share some engineering.
For example: the trans on the 1200 can be removed with just a few bolts. The whole tranny slides out for easy access. I know for sure my 800 does not.
