    My friends tell me get a bike not a bra..........but i'm in love
    Tiger 800 xcx 2018-19 is the name......... :broken_heart: :broken_heart: :broken_heart:

    Help for my thoughts will be appreciated

    As i know nothing about Triumph (Honda:broken_heart::broken_heart:-Yamaha:broken_heart: fun) i would like some feedback
    from problems concering that model,
    As i have seen in photos the new 2020 has the rear footpeg with screws changeable if something goes wrong, has anybody experience a fall, with 2015-9 and which are the consequences in that part??
    what about cornering???
    what about brakes???
    what about air protection ???
    what about off road abilities???
    what about weight - center of gravity ???
    what about consumption?????

    Also....
    1) i'm thinking maybe waiting for the 2020 that will come next year? i have heared that will be 900cc, showa
    suspension, and about same hp 95ps( anybody knows somethink else??? ) OR 2019 with WP, and free from child sickness?????, with 3 panniers included that are limited offer now in my country......

    Tiger Owners ARE YOU HAPPY WITH A BIG SMILE????????????????

    Thank you for your time
    George



    P.S, sorry for my English

    Welcome aboard mate...

    I think consumption was a disease back in the cowboy wild west days...

    A friend of mine wouldn't ride anything else. He regularly goes touring and always sings the bikes praises. He tried the 1200 but preferred the 800.

    I have ridden the Tiger 800 XRX and to be honest it's one of the best bikes I've ever ridden. More than enough power to work two-up; great long distance seat comfort; good on fuel.

    Altogether a great bike - just too much money for me right now.

    A Yamaha Tracer MT-07 Tracer. Powerful enough, light, amazing fuel economy on my last trip (Nearly 2000 kms) of 3.8lts/100 kms or about 75 mpg.

    They are a great bike all round. Not rode one myself as I prefer the Bonnies. They get great write ups and are given a name for both styles of riding on and off road. Take a look on YouTube. And of course welcome to the family.
    Kind Regards & Ride Safe
    Joe.

    If there is a new one coming then the existing one I’m sure will be offered at some attractive pricing to clear before new one arrives

    Yep, some great deals to be had if your dealer likes to pre-register a few as long as you don't mind having the last model and you are not already in love with the new one. Suspect it's too late for misty eyed rantanplan though, seems like he is too far gone!!

    Thank you again

    All these bits you want can be added any time. The most important bike is to get the bike.
    Regards
    Joe.

    I've not ridden an XcX, but my ABS roadie is the best bike i've ever owned. I'm tempted to buy a brand new one when i've sorted cashing in my pension, if that works out i will be trying a couple of different models of the 800.
