looks surprisingly like BMW's F800GS series...

:confused:

When you have walked my path of pain and suffering

you will understand my need for revenge and to inflict pain on those who have betrayed me

As a scorpion bides its time to strike so shall I wait for that moment to obtain my vengeance

And my mocking laughter shall be the last thing they hear. In The End, We Remember Not The Words Of Our Enemies, But The Silence Of Friendships

Nice look but how much on the road??? The problem with all these European bikes like BMW, Aprilla, Triumph are that the s'pore agent make up their price so sky high. A BMW GS1200 cost about $10,000 pounds in UK but in Sillypore on the road is already about $40,000SGD. Just look at how much PML is earning for every bike they sell.

Did my 1st servicing.Rode close to 1000km already and e immediate difference is e engine.Torque is available as soon as you crack open or twist e throttle on any gears.Given e flat torque curve,it has oodles of grunt everywhere.The engine sound is orgasmic!Brakes are okay for normal street ride.To me,e suspension are set up nicely for SG roads.Posture is comfy with a good commanding view and seat height is reasonable as it's height adjustable.Currently i get 5L/100km of riding.Take note that i'm still running in e engine.Tachometer dash is informative to me.Having ridden most Jap bikes with basic instruments(not e high end ones of course),this Tiger 800 is pretty informative with

•digital speedometer

•analogue tachometer

•clock

•gear selected

•two trip displays

•distance

•average speed

•fuel consumption

•time

•fuel gauge

•distance to empty

•ABS on/off

•service reminder

•...and it's TPMS-ready

Clutch has a light feel.Cables and wires are neatly arranged or hidden in some cases.The Pirelli Scopions gave excellent grip and more importantly that front fork dive,so often present with this type of bike,was absent.Ok sure the front forks dipped slightly under heavy braking but it was quite acceptable to be honest and a pleasant change from some bikes I could mention.I'm unsure about this but i think e Scorpions are wet road dual purpose tyres cos it gave me confidence riding in e wet.Considering this was not a sports bike but an Adventure road bike with an ability to do pretty light offroad work,it all just felt planted, well sorted, and confidence inspiring.

Tyres come factory equipped with the L-shaped valve for ease of pumping.Small but smart move from Triumph and e headlight.It's adjustable.Gear shifting is slick.

 

Now comes e bad point.

1) e pillion footrest turns me off.It just looks weird to me having it welded to e rear subframe and potruding out a little.

2) Triumph Tiger 800 doesn't come with a rear hugger so all e dirt and debris will be splattered on e undertray - Already addressed that issue with an R&G rear hugger which looks trick! :)

3) Depending on your ride,i'm quite worried that small rocks or any other debris might damage the radiator at high speeds due to e stock front fender - Addressed that issue with a wire mesh radiator cover.

4) Despite e beautifully set up front fork, i really wished it was fully adjustable (wth i'm asking for too much)

5) Despite e unique tank design, u can't put a normal sized tankbag cos e surface area makes it impossible to stick unless it's e small ones or if u opt for Triumph's tank harness and their original tankbag.

6) Bike doesn't come with hazard light:pity:

I guess have to wait for Joe to reply. I can't recall what's the exact price that he told me so I can't say. But he told me that there are only a few Tigers in Singapore.

How come the Tyres looks thinner ??

 

Both Tiger800 comes in dual purpose tyres in e form of Pirelli's Scorpion Trail,hence e thinner than usual 120/17 look.Despite being a dual purpose tyre,e bike handles well in e corners n surprisingly good in e wet.Prolly due to it's deep thread groove n pattern.I'm not a tyre expert but that was what i experienced so far.

This is my 1st time using dual purpose tyres and i'm really impressed.Been riding through in almost all weather conditions thrown in by mother nature since taking e bike and it performs very well i must say.Btw what bike are you riding sènòr?
