    sorry to say ,but you did misunderstand this , the x-road 250 sold here is a sachs with a tiger badge...everything is same and come from the same manufacturer of the sachs x-road which is sold also in OZ or Columbia or costa rica ....

    i would have expected/hoped the xroad to survive my riding....but you do not know where i have been...or do you? read about goat mountain trip? maybe tonybkk or thaicbr will tell you what kind of ride this was .... and flood ridings i done plenty of that too....sure i gave the bike a hard time but still i would expected it to survive...in any case i am happy with my Taiwanese Gmax ( its sold as Tiger Gmax here but it is a PGO Gmax) ..... hope you understand that this bike is , same as the xroad, not manufactured from tiger , only assembled here .

    I have never been crying over bikes....enjoyed all of them(including my first bike a ktm pony ) ...but i never owned a JRD or Platinum , maybe thats why :)
    BTW i never had to wait more than 5 days for a sparepart from tiger.... nor ever had to haggle warranty issues, english email response inless than 24 hours ....you probaby had crappy experience with platinum or jrd ...but this is a Tiger/Sachs section not a jrd or platinum. Tiger is a Thai Manufacturer, the xroad a chinese ckd kit and the gmax a taiwanese ckd kit ...other tiger bikes are "made in thailand"

    hope this info helps,

    I never owned a Sachs bike but I had a Tiger 250RS wich was, from stock, a lot better than a kawaski for half the price (no restrictions on the Tiger). I had my stories with the bike but I still miss it.

    I dont know about JRD either but from my experience Tiger service is just great when its about information, spare or warranty issues.

    I now own a G-Max same as Mbox and I'm happy with it, the only thing missing from Tiger in my opinion is a better QC.

    Since the 250RS is not available and the CRF250L is coming I may end up with a honda if I dont have to change stuff and void the warranty to make it run as it should.

    The restrictions on the D-Tracker and the KLX are just a joke, how come my 18hp 250RS could perform better than a 23hp 250 D-Tracker for approximatly the same weight ?

    Hi LOTD, sometimes people are kinda confused and put JRD or Platinum into the same drawer as Tiger, although there is quite a bit of difference- and since this is the Tiger/Sachs Section from gt-rider i am not sure why we even talk about JRD or Platinum here (those who wish to discuss their enjoyment, or lack thereof , could ask David to open a section for these brands) ...i think i have explained a lot about the X-road on Tiger/Sachs Forum (much of it was also posted on gt-rider)

    I too liked my Boxer and miss it ...but the time i sold it was the time i wanted to change for the larger virago 750 ,now i think i should have kept my 250RS ..... Anyways i too am having my eyes on the CRF250L ...
    Yeah, the QC should be better on Tiger bikes , but the x-road or the Gmax are actually CKD kits and in terms of assembly the xroad was alright and so far not any problem with my gmax either.

    The X-Road 125 was never imported in Thailand, you'd better contact Sachs Germany for more info.

    Seconded. .. The xroad 125 was never sold here...and depending when you bought yours you may either have to check with Sachs in Germany or in China/HK. If your xroad 125 has 6 gears than you got the one made in Europe with the Moto Morini Engine( i think they were made in europe until 2003? Not sure though) ....if you have 5 gears you will have to look in china/H.K.
