    Not yet. Dealer launch is the start of November.
    Had a bit of a shock doing price comparisons on the big tour / sport rigs.
    Over here the Trophy is cheaper than both the C14 and the new FJR - and yet for you guys stateside, the reverse is true.
    Weird.

    Triumphs are farkin' expensive new here in Japan. I can buy a reimport Crosstourer or S10 for about $4K cheaper than a T12.

    The old FJR is £14500, the C14 is £13,600 and the pan is £14,000. The base Trophy is £13,000 give or take - but has higher spec as standard than all it's rivals.

    The price of the FJR in the UK is a joke. A sick one.

    got a chance to sit on this baby at Barber's Vintage over the weekend. Also chat with the Triumph rep. Here is what I came away with.

    - Just a tad under 700 lbs, wet and with all three bags. I will say it is a behemoth. Looks are closest to the ST1300. I really didnt see the BMW connection.
    - Bags and topbox are standard equipment
    - More do dads and farkles than you can shake a stick at are standard.
    - Wind shield height is adjustable by about a foot or so. From above head height to below the chin.
    - Egodynamics: (I am 6'. 32" seam). Arms were very comfy. No percepatable lean at all, very straight up seating position. Pegs felt a little high, legs a little cramped. This was with the seat in the low position.
    - The seat seems wide and comfortable. ?might? not need a custom seat.

    Oh, and I almost forgot. 900+ watts of electrical power......

    The R1200RT is missing a lot of basic stuff in its base configuration, which is why dealers pretty much never stock it that way. It's really more like $20k.

    To me it looks like rewarmed dinner with the same motor and same 5-speed tranny. After 10 years I would've expected a complete overhaul. C'mon Yamaha, slot the Vmax's 1700cc V4 into a sport-tourer! :deal

    Kev Ash reckons the FJR is the sportier of the 2. Just a shame we have to wait 12 months or so for the new RT..

    In the real world the degree that they are separated by sportiness will likely boil down to the rider.

    That is true. Time - and test rides - will tell.
