The New Triumph Adventure bike......

Well, the last thread went awry so I figured I'd start something that we can all JUST STAY ON TOPIC?!

My big beef with ADV bikes is that they have crap fuel range either because the tanks a pipet or they get bad MPG. I hope Triumph's new bike has these big areas for me at least partially covered. A 6 gallon tank on a bike that can do 60MPG would be a start. Yeah I know BMW's GSA has a 350-400ish range but it weighs like 500000lbs.

Anyways..... "Triumph Adventure bikes, it's just what you need" Well, maybe.


STAY ON TOPIC------>New Triumph Adventure bike

If you go here http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=599070 you will find that range is unlimited, due to the new Triumph Tiger 800 DS' ability to create its own fuel from spent exhaust gasses.

I get the feeling you'd take the fun out of a hoola hoop.

The new Triumph Tiger 800 has a too tall seat, too small tank, is too heavy, has a crap windscreen, terrible ergonomics, terrible fuel efficiency, has a water pump that fails within 5,000 miles, no ground clearance, horrific factory support, and generally renders it's riders flaccid.

And it may or may not have a hydraulically actuated clutch.

I too hope for good mileage and range. Those guys who want poor mileage and range don't know what they are talking about.

I guess we'll just have to wait to see where it ends up.

It definately has a cable clutch.

It was a nefarious plot by Triumph in cahoots with their plant managers in China to cry and keep costs down.

My fingers are crossed for a 7 gallon tank that gers 14 MPG.

"When you're riding Triumph's two new adventure bikes..." I'd like to see someone ride 2 bikes.

Adventure clothing?

For cryin' out loud, shitcan the ad agency and knock $1000 off the price of the bike, Triumph!

And get the damn thing in the showroom already!

Thanks
CA Stu
