Sorry, I did not check that.  :003:

No need to check.  Not physically possible to use Triumph's system with tubed tyres.

I must admit that on reading the spec of the new bike I was a tad disappointed. One of the most criticised parts of the existing model is the front fork. Yet, from what I read, the new bike has the same fork as the bikes from as far back as 2011. I have no doubt the engine etc is an improvement but like others on this forum I do not see the advantages of the increased level of electronic gismos on all new bikes. I would point out that my 2013 roadie, with improved suspension and tyres seems to improve with age especially since M. Sump esq serviced it. Never mind, just looking forward to a test ride.

For anyone who's interested, Triumph will be holding 30 minute "after hours" interactive sessions on the new Tiger 800 at Motorcycle Live.

These sessions will happen on selective dates after the show closes and are ticket only.

The tickets are free but are limited in number.

Those who are able to attend (remember this is after the show closes, either 5pm or 6pm), can get their tickets here:

Thanks for the heads up Admin on the Triumph Offer of taking part in their interactive event after the main show at the NEC. Admittedly like most, I'll be sticking with my trusty 'original' XC ... as TBH I can't see the need to upgrade just for the sake of a few gimmicks.

But one thing I am hoping for, is that this event is truly Interactive (?) - booked a couple of tickets as going with a riding buddy who's also an enduro expert - if they do let us near or lose on a new Tiger, we're going to have a bit of fun 'trying them out as only 'that' real Triumph [part time sas] Rider would want us too   :164:

Called my local (50 miles away) Triumph dealer today.
Still no confirmation or even guidelines on pricing for the new Tigers.
However they expect the New XRX (800) to be in the range of 11,000+

New models with be in Showrooms for March.
Whilst I will continue my Tiger hunt, im also eager to pit the Tiger against the new F750GS

The F750gs has normal forks and 75hp, not really a direct competitor. My wife has the current F750gs and whilst its a good dependable (boring) bike its not in the same class as the 800 Tiger. However, the new F850 has more torque and brand new massively reduced vibe engine and will likely be very good, time and test rides will tell. We were on the factory tour on Friday and they were building the new Tiger 1200s and for some reason the bike looked physically a lot slimmer and less top heavy!! so hopefully it is!
ps the factory tour is very educational and well worth going on if you are interested in engineering, fwiw strange but true...Triumph are one of only 2 yes 2 manufacturers that manufacture their own crankshafts...
There's someone in my head but its not me..?

Just spent 10 minutes comparing the specs on the Triumph website between my 2017 XRT and the new 2018 version.
My summary as follows
Aside from switchgear and dashboard / display they've managed to make the new model lose a few pounds dry weight, I think largely in the exhaust.
LED lights all round.
Front Calipers now Brembo - rear remain Nissin.
Max Power and Torque are the same but the new version delivers them about 200RPM higher which seems a little odd, could be down to the engine mapping to suit the new exhaust.
There must be a tweak to the frame as well as the rake and trail angles are a little different,the front shocks are similar but are adjustable
Oh - and the change that could make the biggest difference in a direct comparison between the two could be the new screen - if it works it will save a few quid in buying aftermarket versions.
So not quite ALL NEW but tweaks and upgrades across the board.
