I thought it was called the S10 because it weighed as much as a small pickup?

Although to be honest I've seen some bikes on here with close to 200 lbs of crap loaded on them. So 800 lbs fully loaded does not sound to beyond the pale. With me sitting on a bike its going to be over 800. But when it falls over I fall off it and no one has to pick it up with me sitting on it!

I sat on one today at the bike show. I really liked the fit, finish and width of that bike. Very nice.

Claimed 261Kg against the tigers claimed 259.

I would say that makes them pretty even.

Sorry Mate, my mistake! Maybe I heard this from someone weighing a fully loaded S10. I will correct my figure.

Just got e-mail from local Triumph dealer here in Raleigh, NC

"Hope this finds you doing well!!! You were in the dealership back in November inquiring about the
2012 Tiger 1200 Explorer. At that time I really didn’t have a lot of information to give you but have gotten some updates
Here in last couple days!! The price is suggested to be 15,699.00 plus freight, set up, doc tax and tags. We have
2 bikes designated for us to receive in May/June of 2012. After the initial shipment we will probably see our second shipment
Late July/August of 2012. We are currently taking deposits for the first two if this is something you would be interested in!!
Let me know if you have any questions or if I can help you with anything! Have a Merry Christmas!!!"

Wonder if that price is for the initial release bikes which are rumored to be coming with some factory installed accessories, or if that's the MSRP for the standard Explorer...

Anyone know anything about the factory luggage? Is it likely to be included with the basic price? Is it compatible with the luggage for the 800XC?

I believe it is the same luggage as the 800. Not sure about price or it's inclusion.

That's a great question. It seems in the ball park all things considered, but ya, what comes with it for that price?

Not too many people have said good things about the factory luggage on 800.

I'm real curious to know how the mpg/range works out. I kinda wish it had a full 6.0 gallons on board.

I think the problem with the OEM luggage is just with the mounting tab being weak, not necessarily the luggage itself. So maybe they have worked out a better mounting system on the 1200.

... Mandatory Air-Bags....

Whats this I hear about the US models coming with mandatory front and rear air bags plus a super duty clean emissions catalytic converter all standard?

Thus bringing the dry weight to just under 900lbs and the base price somewhere around 20k.

Its getting harder to decipher fact from fiction.........Plus I can't remember where I heard this, I'm so confused......

Isn't it great, Burgerking, to live in a part of the World where the average person does speak, read and understand at least 2 foreign languages?



Tnx for sharing the PDF. For the 'Only US-English' speaking natives here... It seems that Triumph originally had an 25 L fuel capacity in mind. Even on a riding prototype. But according to the PDF file in Burgerking's download, the extra fuel capacity had an negative influence on road handling of the bike and was there for reduced to 20 L (Litres).

Funny guys, those British...

Hmmm... doesn't the GSA comes with 28 liter, like the Stelvio NTX?

Despite the German language used in the document, it gives a clear look at the original Triumph accessories available and how they are mounted on the bike.

If you have the time, you can just copy paste it to google translate (that's what I did!!!)
