    Anyone riding the new Tiger 800 XCx? If so can you give a report? I was about to pull the pin on the F800GS but with the reduced price on the Tiger 800 I'm re-thinking my plan. Tried calling Britbike a couple times but no one seems to answer the phone?

    The 800XCx is a Fantastic Bike and there are multiple Guys made Orders already! Unfortunately Delivery Time is now 6 Months due to all those Orders! But Delivery Time is still 4 Months I heard for the GS so either way You will be waiting! So You won't see any New XCx on the Road till middle of 2015 I am Guessing? Likewise You will have to just read the Test Reports in a Magazine until someone actually gets theirs here?

    "Due to a lot of people reserve the bike. deposit on the bike now will receive it in August 2015"

    F800GS, BMW told me 4 months wait.

    I think I'm ok to wait for the Triumph 800. I'll make a trip into Britbike in the new year and decide.

    Anyone have a confirmed delivery date yet for the 2015 800XCx? Mines on order but they only would give me August as a date.

    I regularly look at the Thai Tiger 800 XC FB page and no one has received their bikes yet. A few Thai riders have sold their deposits on for cost price (20K THB), quoting May delivery date.

    Pretty poor show considering the bikes are assembled locally :(

    Seeing on FB some Thai riders have picked up their new Tiger's from RCA in BKK. One rider quoted insurance from Thai Sri at 25,422฿.

    I called Triumph last Tuesday to ask when in August I should receive my 800XCx. The sales man said he could have one for me on Friday! Picked it up yesterday, 2 months early!

    I put 150 km on it riding home. First impression is very good. Lots of power, smooth and good suspension. I've read many guys say the sound on the Triumph triple engine is intoxicating and I have to agree. Didn't play with the rider modes much as traffic was crazy all the way. Will head out today on some quieter roads to play with the settings.

    Triumph recommended insurance was 22,478b. I asked for Thai Sri and they told me it would be around 25,000b but I couldn't get it until Monday. Didn't want to ride out of Bangkok without insurance so I took the cheaper option which they said was the same coverage.

    They apologized a couple time for not having an english owners manual for me but said they have ordered them and I should have one in a couple weeks.

    Overall a pleasant experience dealing with them. Will have to wait and see how the first service goes.

    Triumph in Chiang Mai have been delivering the the XCx for the past three weeks or so but whats a little bit concerning is that there will be no more Scramblers in its current form.

    Apparently, due to some EU regulation, all new bikes have to be water cooled and so that will be the case for the new Scrambler and Bonnie. Whats the world coming to????

    Does any one know any thing about this?
