I was hoping for tubeless tires...

I think tubed tires are a deal-breaker for me.

any bike at this price will have tubed tires. tubless would raise the price considerably. you get what you pay for. you can buy it and convert.

Pretty sure both my DL1000's had tubeless tires at 70% the price.

The 2013 says "800XC" etched into the side, while the 2012 just says "800."
That's the only difference that I have noticed

I couldn't see much difference. Saved myself $2000 by buying a 2012 model.

The DL is 70% the bike. The DL is absolutely no comparison to an 800XC. You can buy the 800 roadie and get the same quality wheel that you received on the DL, and its tubeless. I have owned a DL1000 and now own a 800XC.

Coming from a liter Strom, I'm not sure 70% is giving the strom too much credit or not. The strom was nice, but to me the Tigger is head and shoulders better.

I agree. I think the DL and Tiger XC are so far apart they aren't even comparable. I just quoted 70% because he referred to the Strom at being 70% of the cost...

This DL1000 vs 800XC banter is very useful to me. I really enjoyed both my Vstroms so I would love to hear any specifics on what about the Tiger you guys like better.


Thanks!
