Here it is, all of the reviewers seem to rate the triumph better http://www.motorcycle-usa.com/8/1012...g-Comparo.aspx
I watched that MCN review a long time ago.... and I don't agree with it!

Yes, I've ridden both.

The 800XC is considerably more top heavy than the F800GS. Also feels heavier overall. And for a 800cc triple, its engine feels considerably weaker than the F800GS's down low in the RPMs.

I stand by my previous post.

The Griz screwed with this post 07-08-2011 at 08:46 AM Reason: Wrong engine displacement.
