On a more serious note, I spoke with Triumph dealer today at the Intermot motorcycle fairs in Cologne, Germany. Probably repeat of what you already know, but the bike will be presented at ECIMA in Milan on 2 Nov.

In Germany, it will be available as of December. Price below 10k EUR with ABS which will be switchable. Available colours, orange, white and black. Enginewise, 90 HP and 76 Nm of torque. He was not precise on tyre section but hinted at 100 at the front (21' of course) and 130 at the back, which sound a wee bit skinny.

If they managed to keep the weight down, it might be interesting bike.

Me thinks he's talking about the decoy.

Wicked Worried for a moment

This thread almost slipped to the second page, for a brief instant I thought that they might have actually released the bike!

gosh, how could this paragon of information be anywhere but the top of the beasts page.

At least it's interesting and fun to read: what with time travel, unicorns, gandalf and all. It keeps me coming back.

Again I will iterate: If I was releasing a new bike and wanted to promote the thing in a viral fashion, would I want a bunch of talk about hydraulic this and that, compression ratios, and other bikes. OR would I like a bunch of true believers, who get the fun of the whole thing.

Seriously? Gandalf, time travel and chuck norris? What could be better?

Don't forget about the part about the new Triumph Tiger 800 DS' powerplant being bigger on the inside than it is on the outside.

Alliance News is reporting that the Tiger 800 union labor dispute has been settled --the Iron Mountain dwarves will be responsible for metal work (e.g., castings, forging and engine assembly) while the elves of Lothlorien will be responsible for overall design, traction control, anti-lock brakes or anything else that works like "magic" as well as final QA/QC.

The dwarves are extremely protective of their propietary metal working processes; however, after intense negotitations, it was reluctantly agreed upon that final inspections should be performed by elves. After all, who wouldn't want a pair of keen elvish eyes to ensure that each and every one of these mythical rides can live up to its (at this time, yet unconfirmed) potential of allowing mere mortals to outrun KTM-equipped wraiths?

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.
