2015 800XCX worth 4,000$ more?? HELP!

Ok inmates,

I have a dilemma, I was seriously considering an 800 XC..
I was quoted 9990 for a new 2013 They have black white and green.--stock
another dealer quoted me 9990 for a 2013.. farkled.
Skid plate, arrow exhaust, lights..

But the 2015s XCXs are now available as well. for 13499

My questing is...

would the extra doo dads (rider modes, cruise etc. be worth the premium??

What say the inmates???

That's a $3500 difference, not $4000. The suspension upgrade alone would cost about half that.

I have a 2012 800xc, and wouldn't trade up, but if I was buying a new one, I'd buy the XCX. The cruise control is great, and the switchable modes would be nice. The suspension puts it over the top. Buy the XCX.

One aspect of the decision being overlooked in similar threads is resale. If you are sure you'll keep the bike four years or more, the extra cost may be worth it. However, if seeing a squirrel makes you forget where you were going, if the next Africa Twin will cause you to wear red to bed, the discounted one will be easier to sell in a couple of years.

Do you spend many miles on slab? Do you ride in places that would over tax the first generation suspension? Do you NEED the extra too dads? That's a pretty big savings that could be spent on farkles, gear, trips, etc.

Green '13 in a heartbeat.

The money left over will get you a really nice DR650.

Or just wait a year and buy a used '15XCx for $9,990.

No matter what, you won't be able to get the electronics suite of the 15 on a 14. And as soon as you roll a 13 off the floor...it's a used 13 vice a used 15.

I bought the 2015 800 xcx because the farkling was already done and go ride! Everyone has different tastes with exhausts too. Cruise control major deciding factor for me.

Cruise control would be really nice.
BUT;
I am perfectly fine with the 2012 suspension.
And;
Thats a ton of money for most folks. Id get the older model.

I didn't have that much of a price spread, and didn't have a '13 with farkles available to tempt me.
But I did just order a XCX.
Suspension + electronics + better resale.

Before I bought my 2015 XCx, I rode a 2014 model (and a BMW 800GS and a BMW 1200GS). The 2014 Tiger was what convinced me that Triumph was definitely the way to go.

I bought the 2015 because of the suspension, the reshaped gas tank, the cruise control, and the extra range that the better gas mileage allows. The rider modes are cool as well. The combination of all of those things was well worth the $$ premium to me.

Having said that, if Triumph had not come out with all of the new goodies, I would have been very happy with a 2014 bike. You really can't go wrong either way.

I paid the same amount for my 2012 back in the day and this was better than what I was coming off of. For the suspension, stepper motor rework, electronics, and other items, I would go for the new one as some of the farkles on the older are already included. Just and FYI, I had the dealer call me about trading in my 800XC with only 4000 on it(blew out my back and was down a year) in the winter for a new bike and told me they were only going to give me a little over 5600 for it loaded and I have done way to much to my bike to trade it in for that. If I was buying new, I would take the 2015 as that's much more money saved on updates you would do to the older one.

Same here...I had a '12 XC that worked awesome and had no plans to get rid of it. Then a buddy offered me a wad of cash for it, so I picked up the '15 for the exact same reason below. Either one is a great ride, and you cant go wrong. Combo of ergonomics and a killer engine make this my favorite motorcycle hands down over all previous....

I think that's a great summary. If the OP has the cash for the '15 without undo financial hardship, I think it's significantly more bike and will bring more enjoyment (and less stress with longer fuel range) than the older one. OTOH, if he's a poor working stiff and struggles for every spare $$ (like me) the older models are great bikes for a significantly better deal. Can't go wrong either way.
