Tiger 850
« on: April 03, 2021, 12:16:46 PM »
Has anybody purchased a Tiger 850, they are more sensibly priced than the 900 & do you really need all those extra gadgets, after all the best selling bike on the market is The Royal Enfield Interceptor which has 2 wheels & an engine, what more do you need.

 Alternatively the BMW GS is the best selling (big) bike and it has a bucketload of tech and a price to match.


Personally i wont have a bike without cruise control and adjustable suspension.

I am lucky to own a 800 xrx and a interceptor 650 they are both nice bikes but for different uses.

Agree, when you get experienced at riding a motorcycle, it is weird to buy anything
without adjustable suspensions to suit your style perfectly.
It is what holds tires on the road after all and roads are not the same everywhere !

I just put a deposit down on a blue 850,i have been on Gs for 4 years but for financial reasons and wont be doing the milage plus many other reasons,it will be nearly like going back to how i remember riding bikes back in the 70s&80s and im really looking forword to it,i was on triumphs for nearly 10 years before i got a Gs so its not new terrortory for me and always had a great relationship with my local dealer. i have put some some photos in gallery,i tried to getthem here but could not understand how to do it,it has changed since i was last on triumph forum.

It's kind of annoying now that I have been spoiled with those features on the Tiger, if I look at getting another bike down the line I simply can't get one without them, so obviously I have to spend more money.

I like the spirit of the 850 but Im afraid the CC is a deal breaker for me. Quite a lot of the extras on my RP are nice to haves but far from essential but in this day and age I think any adventure type bike should really have CC.
