    Moto Guzzi stone is 420k in UK and the triumph tiger 800 is only assembled in Thailand ,,,BUT its engine is imported from Hinckley in UK that makes the import duty much higher

    Monsterman, I think You will find the entire 800 is built here including the Engine! The Price is caused by Greed nothing to do with import tax! The Latest Tiger 800 range increased in price by 100.000 Baht! Supply and Demand, Oh lets put the price up and make more money!!! In the case of Ducati the Entire range is made here including the Engines and that Includes the latest V4 Panigale!, Which has actually dropped in price considerably compared to the Previous Model! So it is a Yah to Ducati and a Boo to Triumph!!! I will be interested to see what the New BMW 800 Range prices will be when they are released here, Totally New Bike. These are also made here and avalible in Australia already yet not here yet? W.T.F? Very strange.
