The demo bikes are arriving....

Hey... The Demo bikes are here!

My Dealer - Moto91 has got the T800 in already (this afternoon). I was lucky enough to be there while it was being prepared


Denis - the owner of Moto91.
A GREAT guy who can help anyone!


Christian the mechanic setting up the front screen.


The front supporting struts for the info gauges.






Unlocking the ECU Unit....


Of course - a Tiger dealer isn't a real dealer if he doesn't have a few other cats around the place....

Nope... Snow & Ice on the ground yesterday, and this evening I'm not around (night of beer with the working lads )

But once I have - be assured you'll know about it.

All the reviews I've seen so far have been amazingly consistent.

That review was one of the better ones so far. Very comprehensive as far as comparisons between the two models.

Done and Done.

In for a non-ABS XC. That is all.

No bad reviews yet. I am interested in seeing how the reviews go when the magazines can actually get their hands on one but it is looking good so far.

I would like to see the Canadian price point and compare it to the F800GS. The UK Triumph site gives an out the door price of under $11,000.00 Lbs (loaded).
The BMW site goes to $9,000.00 Lbs, no hard bags, lights, skid plate, body armour, headlight protection...in the end it could come out even (in the UK anyway).

Come on lottery ticket

I Just got a call from GP Bikes regarding new Tiger. Here's what I know:
They will have new Tiger 800 at the bike show next weekend (Street version, not XC).
Availability: Early March
Price: Tiger 800XC non-ABS - $12,200 CAD + 500 freight.
Tiger 800XC ABS - $13,090 CAD + 500 freight.
Deposit < $1,000

For me the Super Tenere is still a strong option and apparently Yamaha Canada will have it at the show. I look forward to checking out these bikes and plan on making a deposit on one of them. Tiger is substantially cheaper than Yamaha which Kahuna told me will start at CAD 17,000.

Us Canadians are paying a huge premium on the Super Tenere over our USA friends as they are getting a great deal. So I won't buy one until they discount it heavily which they will sooner or later. As far as the Triumph's go these bikes are priced about 10 to 13 % over the US which is better then 34% for the Yamaha a real rip off for sure.
