Increase in power is only about 30-35% though. I do also wonder if there's anything it would do 50% better....

If I hadn't already bought the 800 in March '11, I'd be seriously considering a 1200 in March this year. As it is I'll take the test ride and see what I think, but I doubt it's going to impress me enough to make me take a ~6k trade-in against a 12k bike.

Now what I really want is an "800cc XC" with 115bhp and shaft drive, total weight less than 180kg.......

Geoff at Lilley's has sat on one in the flesh and says that it looks and feels spot-on. The only thing that lets it down is the strange Triumph logo. Why they can't stick to the traditional style one they are famous for I don't know.  When I bought my T800 I had the logo removed and replaced with the traditional style logo and it looks so much better. Triumph need to get this in perspective.......They are in possession of an iconic logo with the same symbolism as Coca Cola for example and they should build on it not let it fade into the background. Could you imagine BMW getting rid of the blue and white propellor? No I don't think so.

I've got to agree with you there. It put me off for a while and I bought the 1200 despite of the awful badge! I'm trying to work out how to replace it with something a lot nicer as we speak....
