From the studio shots it doesn't look like much of an issue. Maybe that picture you were refering to is just a funny perspective that makes the link look lower than it actually is.

Anyway, I don't see anything that concerns me yet.

Triumph XC Specs

Have we seen ANY info about specs?

The motor is fantastic - that should be a given.

I want to know about weight and the suspension.
