I have my eye on the 900 GT Low. Does anyone know how handling and comfort is affected? Also resale value?

Factory lowered = no handling issues. Might be slightly limited in lean angles possibly, but otherwise you'd like to think Triumph know how to set their product up correctly.

As with any factory lowered bike you'll be looking to sell to another member of the vertically challenged, like myself. As with anything find the right prospective purchaser and you are golden.

I have a Certificate of Entitlement for registration no. T900 GRR.

If anyone is interested in purchasing this let me know, it would go perfectly on a new Tiger 900. I would be looking for 300, plus any transfer fees (which may or may not be payable, I'm no expert on registrations).

If the Tiger 900 forum ever opens up, I'll post it on there and a few other forums.

They say far more than what the subtitles tell you, I could tell with my limited Italian and one big error, the 800 does the 0-100kmh in 4.2s not 4.7, they exagerated on some stuff, like Italians do  :164:.

I've already commented on another thread how the new bike has lost its signature 'Triumph Triple' sound (IMO) but the first 1.5mins of this clip confirms it with real riding. It sounds as much like a Triumph Triple as my VW Golf does. :110:
Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

So the best motorcycle site in Switzerland just gave their review, overall they thought it was the most polyvalent adventure bike, but 2 points they precised were very telling about the engine !

Basically the tester said never going above 6000 rpm, so if like me you love rincing the throttle, it might not be sa nice, also said it gets vibey above 6000.
Apparently they also noted to be in 3rd or 4th gear while off-roading, so still not a Twin in the end !

I was told last week (by a main dealer employee who'd just got back from a presentation at the factory) that the 0-60 time for the 900 was 3.2 seconds.
