Plus, I was kind of curious to see the numbers translated myself. 463 lbs and almost 8" of front wheel travel. Hmm.

F 800 GS is 455 lbs fuled with 9" of front wheel travel according to BMW's site.

Interesting.

Of course, nobody actually knows anything.
I just saw an add for an F800GS with 7 miles on it. It's a 2009, so I'm guessing that's 7 miles ride from the dealer. Dreamers eh?

that only looks like a picture of the bike because the tiger projects a membrane of fermions, less that 1/10000 of a mm thick, just so that we can recognize what we are dealing with. the actual bike is merely the essence of pure awesomeness, which we would never see unless it let us.

Those are to shade your eyes from the dazzling brilliance of all that is Tiger 800 XC.

As much as I love my KTM 990 Adv that just might be my next bike in a year or so, I don't want anything bigger and heavier (Read BMW 1200 GS, Yamaha Super T) and I don't want to give into the good but souless 800 GS. A light nimble triple based bike might be just what the doctor ordered.... It will be test ridden... extensively

I bet Triumph will sell every bike they know how to make, well done Triumph!

Bet KTM is regretting not making a lighter smaller twin cylinder adv bike now.... and Yamaha might be realizing their mistake when they made the Super T a 260 kg heffaklump.... and Honda just purely effed up the transalp. This one is open for the taking... Triumph will see some very nice black figures I reckon...

I like the frame/tank protectors that look exactly like turn signals.

The bike on the left in the background, I see an actual crash bar...Arrow exahust, bash plate and aux lights on that one too.

But, yeah. That tank kinda sticks out there a ways.

I think those are plastic covers which if they are made of a decent plastic should work well to protect the tank, just like the new Tenere uses, or like Buell did with their "frame slider pucks".
