    My real question is:

    Can this new handlebar and/or its mounts be fitted to the earlier model Tiger 900s? Or is it just the mountings that are different? Anyone had a close look yet or taken any measurements? That could be an interesting mod (via the breakers in a few years of course) if it is indeed designed to cut vibration.

    The following walkaround video shows the handlebar mounts quite clearly. They've changed and don't appear to be compatible with the outgoing model. The rubber dampers just look like big washers between the mounts and the yoke. If that's Triumph's solution for those who dislike the vibrations then they would be very easy to replicate for the older mounts.

    There is usually rubber at the bottom under the yoke where the nut holding the mount secures to the thread. Otherwise vibrations will just travel through the threaded bolt. Im sure I saw one once where even the threaded bolt went through a rubber sleeve.

    Thanks for the info. Looks like if you wanted to change the mountings you'd have to change the upper yoke as well, at the very least.

    I see the new 900 also has longer individual exhaust headers before they join compared to existing, which will probably contribute to extra power. I do like the new instrument panel though, with a digital representation of an analogue rev counter - one of the things I don't like about my 900 is that it's hard to see the revs clearly.

    Ah well, manyana manyana ...

    I run mine in low light mode all the time with a yellow added for the numbers and and graphics and display 2. Rev counter looks good like this and I get all the information I need in the centre "tray" display

    Thanks for that. I'll give it a try.

    I haven't ridden the current 900 .... Still chugging along on my 800xrx.

    Don't understand why the 900 should have any vibes (if it does). The crank set up is supposed to be more like a twin ... but my V2 Tuono has no vibes at all.

    BTW, mates BMW 1000 xr was replaced due to vibes, its replacement was better  but still has vibes !

    Why do we get such problems now ?

    Anyhow, seems to me like the crank change was to improve off road riding, but I would think the majority of use for most people is on the road.

    The T800 is a very capable road bike, for an adventure style bike.

    "Would likes" for me would be more mid range grunt and wider tyres.

    Oh  ... Not keen on the handling tho when fully loaded with camping gear !

    So I guess that's what I would like to see in the new 900.

    😀

    Just noticed that the service intervals are still every 6k, pretty poor really - even the 950 Multistrada is every 10k !

    If you so dislike the Triumph perhaps  you could exercise the right to "vote with your wallet" and buy a different bike?
