Well...if they do WP adjustable suspension I will kinda be mad. I really do not care at all about all rest. But that. That will make me spend money on Ohlins kit.
One thing I do not get - upgraded alternator. Why anyone would need more watts when it is already so much - besides me.

The XCX looks interesting.

Would have preferred a 530cc twin Tiger Cub for DP use, but even still, more 800 choice is good. Would have loved to have a Tiger 800 with shaft as a sport tourer too, but oh well.

Looks like a small price rise. Would have been nice to see a more affordable version as the base line, like 8k or less.

I scanned across the page and had to do a double take when I saw 137 bhp.

Damn near took the rest of the day off.

I've been waiting for this shoe to drop.

Some interesting upgrades, especially the cruise control and improved suspension.

With Yamaha about to announce the FJ-09 in two week it looks like Triumph has made a move to entice the touring types. NICE!
Bring more competition!

Take another look. The rightmost columns are for the (relatively unchanged) Tiger Explorer 1200.

Thumb 15% more fuel economy

Good stuff!

The second gen Tig is going to be a good ADV touring vic.



FWIW. I guess that is 30 more miles on a tank.

What does "Restricted" On Board Computer mean? That you have the same computer as the XCX and XCA but some functions are locked out? I assume these this is an information dash computer, not an operation computer (ECU) that would control things like the cruise control and engine modes.

What's the typical MPG on the current 800?

Seems most likely.

This is great news for me. Just test rode a Roadie the other day and was hooked. I already planned on waiting until Spring to buy and it looks like I'll have a fair amount of choices to choose from. Still haven't been able to decide between the Roadie and the XC...nothing a few more test rides can't fix.

The salesman mentioned that there was going to be a 6% price increase. He also said he thought he'd have more info on next year's models after Oct 16th, apparently some dealer network conference happens then.

So I guess 45mpg or so.

Most folk go about 200 miles before filling.

This is a much needed improvement for riders needing range.


5.0 gallon tank.

Thanks T-P-J.

220 mile range and I'm a happy camper.
I had a 1st year 800XC/ABS, after adding an arrow can and flash it was getting 32-35mpg. I only kept it about 9 months, but would like to have another triple adventure touring bike. Hmmmm, FJ-09 or Tiger?
