The Triple is lots of fun. Great engine. Love it. Don't love the chain, but that's what it is ...

Thank you for the generous offer. I've been on rides with an 800 and didn't know the
owners well enough to suggest a short trade. As far as the rims....just put them on my
standing Woody's account.

3 days in with my new 800xc

I had an 09 gs800 and unfortunately wrecked it (and myself) in july of 2012. The good news is that I am back at work and just picked up the 2013 green 800xc. I only have 85 miles on it in mostly wet conditions but I have a couple of insights on the bike comparing it to the gs. The motor is much smoother and the ABS seems to be more advanced on XC. The only thing the beemer seemed to do better than the xc is the self canceling blinkers. The Triumph is extra stubborn with its brand of non canceling blinkers....even after turning the bike off with the blinker on...it will start blinking the next time you start it. I am looking forward to uncorking this motor after the initial service is complete...oh yeah, the rumor is true...the green ones make more HP. Stay well inmates. I am loving this bike.

Fair Price for an Unsold 2012 Triumph Tiger 800XC?

I live in the northeast USA, and leaning strongly toward the Tiger 800XC. Or at least I was until I spotted photos of the new Tiger Sport!

There is a brand new one sitting on the floor of a nearby dealer. Been there for much of the past year. Color white which I like but may not be as much in demand. List price is $11,999, plus destination of something like $800.

My question is, how much of a discount do you think the dealer might be open to? I know this is highly subjective and dependent upon a ton of variables. Wondering about going in with cash in hand and offering $2,000 or more off the price . . . since its the dead of winter, its now 2013 and that bike is a 2012, and the new bikes (including the afore mentioned Tiger Sport) keep being introduced.

Thanks for the suggestions.

The 1050 sport is definitely a road-going touring bike. It has been well liked, is a nice alternative to the likes of a Ducati Multistrada, KZ1100, etc. If you have any inclination of using the bike off pavement the XC would be a far better choice. There were rumors of that model being discontinued, but it looks like they've revived it for 2013.

IMO you would be doing good to get the bike for msrp plus tax, no add-on fees. That's about a $500 discount by taking off the shipping costs. If you could get it out the door at msrp even better. I doubt you would see any huge discounts on any of these bikes, but I could be wrong. You could always try to negotiate a deal if that's what you really want.

Nice article on the bike here: http://www.visordown.com/road-tests-...iew/20382.html

As a side note, there are some real bargains on late model used tiger 1050s. I've seen them well under ten grand.

I bought a 2012 in November for $10,800 + tax... That's $1200 below suggested retail with free delivery and set up...

AFAIK the "Sport" Tiger is a brand new model and your "new one" will be the old model. Easy to check. If it has a single sided swingarm it IS the Tiger Sport. If not, it's the old cooking model. Still a nice bike though.

If I read your post right, you're asking about an 800xc that's been there for the entire year?
If so, I bought my 2011 white(best cooler)XC in January 2012 for $2100 off OTD price. They had a lot of 2012's sitting there and didn't want it to look like they were not a hot seller-bike hasn't changed since introduced except for frame colors and of tank/fender

Sweet Deal for an 800XC

Just to clarify my original question, yes, its the 2012 Tiger 800XC that has been on the show room floor of the dealer for quite some time, and that I am on the verge of making an offer on.

Appreciate the many responses. Especially the guy in FL who bought one for a $2100 discount. Sweet deal! Any advice on how to achieve such success? What approach did you take with the negotiations?

Thanks
