I think I want one.
I hope to see it at the NEC and hopefully it is competitively priced.

I've heard around £7600 for the XC - ABS as an option for £600 more. That could be completely wrong of course..

I understand motorcycle sport and leisure have an article on this bike from a triumph development rider. Not seen it yet but apparantly the only problem was the side stand and they sorted that.

MSL have a detailed 20 page spread on these bikes in the December issur. One picture shows the Arrow end can fitted that is still massive!
Seems from the story that they have hit the mark.
The real test is using one, all the paper data looks good but using it will tell the real story.
Re running costs, I have just spoken to someone who has paid £700 for a 12,000 mile service on his Triumph Sprint. Quite a shock so I wonder what the service deals are on this new 800?

They have hyped this bike up so much that people are ordering them without even seeing one in the flesh, let alone sitting on or riding one. As a result there will be a big waiting list. Don't fall in to this trap. I predict there will be a lot of low mileage second hand ones, soon after they are released. :thumbleft:

Aston Martin used a similar tactics with the lagonda when they were almost bankrupt.

No, I wasn't sure about this when it was first anounced, but from the look of it and the specs I like it a LOT! As I've said before, I'm no fan of multis, and that for me includes tripples. However, a wet weight of 215 kg seems pretty reasonable to me considering it has one more cylinder than an AT or TA.

It reminds me a lot of the original F650GS to look at - no bad thing...
