Hi All
Had my 2016 XRX for a couple of weeks and quite a revelation. I've had all sorts of Triumphs since 1994 (Hondas before that), my last one being a 2002 RS 955i - which I of course still have. That engine..!! Anyway... found the ride a bit too hard now and controls a bit 'heavy'. The Tiger is such a step up. Light controls, comfortable seat & riding position & excellent display with some good features. Not so bothered with the rider modes but will play with them in due course. My only gripes - the engine whine - but thats character apparently and Exhaust too quiet. Maybe they go hand in hand.....I have found these forums useful over the years so hoping to make good use of this one.

Hi Rob and welcome to the forum.
I wasn't bothered for the whine at first but have grown used to it.
Enjoy
