Hmm, in the video I posted above TMF is quoting the dry weights of the bikes as follows.

Standard: 192kg, GT: 194kg and Rally at 196kg.

That's actually a lot lighter than current models which are around 208kg dry.   :027:

Those weights come from the spec table in the press release.

See bottom of table in pdf attached  :038:

XRT dry is 202  and GT Pro is 198, be carefull about the spec cheats, I'm comparing on the website each specs.

Also eactly what I predicted, 10% increase in CC and "surprise" 10% increase in their consumption figure...

My bad, it's the XCA that's 208kg.

Good news, my bike is 6kg lighter than I thought it was.   :047: :417:

Welcome to Euro 5  :001: :001:

But on their website if you look in detail, I really Don't understand the point of Euro5, the Euro 4 800 is said to make 107gr/Km of Co2 but the Euro 5 900 makes 119gr/Km, so also a 10% increase !?

Weren't these supposed to pollute less, that seems rather dumb !

Good overview. Obviously from the press kit but easy to read.

Hmmm, Re ^^^

Lighter engine:
The new 900cc engine is lighter yet pumps out 10% more torque and delivers more power across the entire rev range.

Lighter frame:
Lighter, All-New Chassis
Now between 10 and 20 pounds lighter than the previous generation depending on the model


Current bikes Tiger800 XRx, Tiger Sport 1050, Ariel FH 650, Yam Serow 225.

There's only one logical falacy in their assessment, "Long-distance travel has been improved", the consumption is up 10% and you only get 1 more liter of fuel, so technically the mileage is lower than and on the 800, journalists

Ouhhh call me old fashioned but I just saw GT Pro has electronic rear suspension, I stay away from these as much as possible !

I think the Rally will be a great update for offroaders, the GT, in my opinion is good but I think they oversold it with the wait.

I won't be buying one any time soon, but eventually I'd like a GT Pro. Hopefully in time there will be some more interesting colours too.

Any guesses on pricing for the GT and Rally if the base model is 9,500? 12k-14k perhaps?
