A lot of it appears to be just complete guess work and contradicted elsewhere in the press.

Now we have official photos of the bikes, official photos of the GI Joe style riders who will own this machine, photos and lists of accessories, details of most dimensions and even pricing does anybody else feel that it's time to move on?

Maybe this thread could be closed as being no longer relevent and somebody could start a new thread about the 2012 model upgrade or the 2013 V-Strom 80cc/6 hardcore bike (yes I said 80, you heard it here first) or even the electric only BMS GS Adventure with an incredible range of 76km between charges (I believe that one is being built for the upcoming "Long way around London" 10 part TV series).

Hey, I can answer that one, and my grasp of the English language sucks, but I got this one down.

You see, the usage of the article "an" is not as critical as how the word following it is spelled, but how it is spoken. You see, a vowel is not really a letter, but a phonic. So the article an is used if the following phonic is a vowel. For example "See you in an hour."

So you type "an R1200GS" but you say "an are twelvehundred Gee ess"

One other thing I see people do a lot is continue to use an for the noun when there is a modifier used.

I ate an apple. is correct
I ate an big apple. is wrong
I ate a big apple. is correct

It is all about the following phonic.

Hope this helps. Sorry if I made any grammatical errors in this post, as I said before I am no English professor, but using a and an is like useing to two and too, basic stuff native English speakers should understand but most don't for some reason.

Now back to the playful banter about the new triumph.

Long way to the Latte Shop.

I'm waiting for the upgraded CT110 actually, I heard it'll be a doozie.

Cheers

You might be the kind of guy who is happy looking at a few pictures and knowing which colours it's available in, but I think a tiny few of us who are actually interested might want to know minor details like:

- The weight
- Power output
- The price of each model
- Suspension travel and adjustment options
- Availability

Or did I not get a memo and all these things have been announced?

I would add, are both engines the same HP or tune?

Adjustable suspension is important, but they had it on the 1050 so I fully expect them to include on the 800.

Wheelbase and Rake I would also like to know. Looks like 61", I hope it is less tho.

I like the cast and spoked wheel options. Hopefully they will be big sellers for Triumph. Now it's all about the price and if they are available in the U.S.A.

I'll take a red spoker with the Arrow exhaust!

I have the 1050 now, but will be looking at the 800. I like looking for dirt roads here in NH to "get lost" on. The 1050 is good for residential dirt roads, but I want a more spirited ride and would like to tackle some fire roads. All depends on price.

I would add, the amount of fuel in the tank.

I guess we will just have to wait till the bike show in Milan for the Official information...

And will the frame be available in black? As the silver frame makes it look like someone's nicked the side panels.

If not will striping the hole bike down to have it powder coated void the warranty?
