I seem to scrape the pegs before I scrape the centre stand on my XRX.

 I suppose its all about money-  and what extras are easiest to charge for , I took an XRT demo out - list price over 12k and that was without luggage or Sat Nav  !! So I bought a used bike with extras   ( inc stand), just over 6500 . You can't blame Triumph --- BMW have been doing it for years

Have the centerstand on my 2018 XRT. It is poorly designed though ... a well designed centerstand should require little effort.
If you ever put a BMW 1200RT or a Versys 1000 on the centerstand, then you know how little effort should be required, even on heavy bikes. Putting my relatively light-weight tiger on the centerstand is very difficult for me: bacause of back issues, i really need to avoid lifting weight. I am actually considering removing it, and just fitting an automatic chain oiler.

They could list the pillion seat & pegs as an extra, keep the price & weight specs down.

The positioning of the T8 c'stand takes the whole weight of the bike. The much heavier Tiger sports pops up onto c'stand much easier, rear biased.
