Yes But it will go harder, possibly cost a bit less and be more reliable.

It would have to be better than the Beamer 800 I can feel my ankle aching it's either going to rain, or the thought of owning an offroad tripple might be the cause.

I also have no need for it, therefore, I'll probably get one. Hopefully it lives up to (realistic) expectations.

Imitation is the greatest form of flattery!!

I hope its more reliable than the other Triumphs out there!!

The F800GS is almost 3 years old, if this thing doesn't match it, what then!

They have copied it down to just about the nth detail so one would hope it does things better!!

Thinking about this Dave

'08 800GS + '03 TDM = Tiger 800XC

Does that calculation add up?

Looks the goods with that 21 front wheel and with the mighty triple it should be a beauty i reckon.
I do get a bit annoyed with pics like this though where they show blokes "striking a pose". Two things come immediately to mind 1. why not have a few chicks "striking a pose" instead like the old Norton ad's? and 2. If you get one of these bikes Andy and i catch you "striking a pose" i'll slap you down. Just a heads up

So when is this beast coming to Australia? I think it hasn't been released yet so there are no reviews as yet? No specs?
