I wouldn't be surprised, if they would, but it seems I understand it slightly wrong and you are right.

The situation is the same here with ABS.
As of the beginning of this month all new model road registered motorcycles released have to have ABS and traction control. Existing models such as the Suzuki DR650 for example have I think until late 2021 to either be fitted with ABS and TC or the manufacturers must stop selling them at that point.

I asked about this model when buying my Tiger about a month ago and the dealer told me he saw it in morroco on a Triumph test, it is really more of a off-road bike according to him, so for people not needing extreme XCA off-roading capabilities, he said the 800 XRT is still great.
He also said the 800 models will still be sold in 2020 and further, so maybe they'll get a kind of detune for Euro5, or something.

The 2 times I bought first year bikes, it wasn't a good decision so I'd steer away honestly, the first MT-09 had crazy ON/OFF ignition and the worst suspension ever, updated 2 years later... MY 2016 Africa twin brought me here to Triumph, after all the corrosion, missfires and gearbox issues, the 2019 ATAS as I see on forums still have all sorts of issues... So yeah I thought the 3rd version of the Tiger would be a great machine and it definitely is !
Also since at least here in Switzerland, Triumphs are really not sold as much as jap brands, it means less market feedback if faults arrise, unlike for BMW or Hondas and Yamis, which sell like hot cakes.

"New" refers to year of manufacture, not year of sale  :028:

Triumph like to unveil their new models at the NEC show, but since there haven't been any teasers .. ?
Now available in "Batman"

...or the manufacturers must stop selling them at that point.
Or..?
If not sold by time certain, the remaining bikes will have to be pre-registered and sold as used models (read that somewhere).

I doubt they have to be pre-registered, that's just for the sales persons bonus. There was a lot of Tiger 1050's sat on showroom floors in the US, for up to 2 years after Triumph had finished that model.

As to USA, I've a friend who just purchased (last month) a 'new' 2018 Tiger800.
But, I think what I referenced dealt with Euro5 regs. & other markets?

Given the spy shots of what looked like a production-ready bike were released over summer, and that the NEC show is on their doorstep, Id be surprised if Triumph didnt unveil it next week. Why hype a bike (to the detriment of existing sales) more than a few months before release?

To stop existing owners or even prospective owners going out and buying the opposition product that at the time maybe be better featured. At least if you make them pause and wait you have a chance. If they have splashed the cash you may have lost them forever. As evidenced by this thread there are also plenty of people who will actually bring a purchase forward and buy the last of the old model rather than being beta testers for a V1 new model.

The 800 has been a huge success for Triumph, maybe they're milking it as long as it remains that big seller, then pip to the post the opposition or they could be hanging fire to ensure the new model is better than the opposition. Who knows, my guess is, the new model will be on sale in 2020. Keeping us all interested eh.

I wonder, what about the 1050 when the 900 comes in. Will it be dropped, it's not a big seller, not even available in the US 'cos the old model didn't sell well.
