    Just started riding my 2018 XRx low in earnest my first triumph triple, but having previously owned Kawasaki 4 cylinder bikes I find the 800 has a fair amount of mechanical noise is this normal, and seat is quite uncomfortable over distance it is the low seat I see mention of a low comfort seat and a comfort seat. Is there anyone out there that has experience of the two seats and which is the more comfortable over distance, and are 800’s slightly noisier and vibrates more than say 4 pot Kawasaki's

    Having not ridden a 4 pot kawasaki I couldn't tell you, but my 2012 tiger doesn't seem too bad, maybe a bit rattly, and I imagine a 4 pot will be smoother than a 3. There are plenty of tigers around, have a listen to some and compare
