Or unless they have valve-fitted sensors rather than sensors internal to the rim.
Nope, it's the same part as fitted to many Triumph models - i.e. the A9640169 internal sensors. The instructions, however, don't list the XC(?) range so I guess it's just a configurator error.

Thanks Troop & HH007  :028:

My opinion hasnt altered much on the new Tiger.
Looks great and id Love all the new toys and screen ...
But there isnt enough to justify the total price once you consider a current gen Tiger.

The Bike World review reveals more improvement to the off-road variant Tiger.
Which makes the discussion for Roadie users that bit easier.

If people could hurry up and trade in their XRXs already, that would be great  :152:

Well the new standard silencer sounds better than the one on my 2011 did before I ditched it (after 2 months).

If I was thinking of changing though I'd probably only go for the XR and accessorise using my experience of the 2011.

Just seen a awesome XRT North of Manchester on Autotrader.
Too far away for me, but I did spy a New Tiger in the background  :001:

I had a good look around the Triumph stand at ExCel today - they had a number of 800s including an XRT in grey that I really liked the look of, it was labelled 'Expedition' on the spec sheet so I suppose there'll be a number of packages as per the previous generation - in this example it was just the addition of the black Expedition boxes, frame protector and tank pad for and extra 1610 over the base price.

If/when I pick one up second hand in a few years the first thing I'd do is respray the tank trims to get rid of the 'Tiger' graphic. I think it really detracts from the bike's appearance. I'm not convinced by the 3D tank badging either.

Called in at Pure Triumph in Welly this morning, whilst I was stopped having a cuppa they wheeled out the new XRT from the compound in order to put a few miles on it before it goes out as a demo.
Had a good look round and have to say that I quite like the new styling, it's not massively different but there are enough difference to make it easy to spot against my 2017 model.
Exhaust is noticeably smaller and what I had not picked up from the online spec is that the XRT no longer comes with the pannier rails as standard.

As an extra bonus I managed to pick up 6 litres of castor racing at Wells Tesco for 3.12 a litre on my way home - can't be bad.
