That picture is the "street" version of the Tiger 800. There aren't any detailed photos of the Tiger 800XC (the more off road oriented of the two).

I would expect a remote pre-load adjuster on the 800XC, or for it to at least be an option if they are attempting to the keep the base price as low as poss.

Please, of course it's remote. In fact it's a universal remote so in addition to fixing the Tiger's suspension you can program your Tivo, cook things in the microwave, and change traffic lights to green.

Its beyond thought controlled. It knows what you want before you do. It will also do your taxes for you.

If it will pay them for me as well, it's a done deal!

Don't worry, according to a freind in the know :wink, what apparently looks like a side stand is in fact just a switch that energizes the anti-grav generator preventing this bike from ever falling down in a hot parking lot or your garage.

It will also actually activate traffic signal actuators. !

Tell people it is a manifestation of PTSD from reading posts in CS&M.

There is certainly going to be jealousy amongst the BMW set when this is released. A 100% reliable and unbreakable final drive regardless of how heavy the bike is loaded or whether you try jumping it.
Triumph are on a winner here, this will revolutionise the whole motorcycle and possibly automotive industry.
Or will the chain be an optional extra?
