Default Re: Triumph Tiger XRx : 6000 km ownership review!

I just happened to test drive the XRX per chance yday. Was actually checking out the bobber and ninja 650. For reference i am only 162 cms (5' 3 1/2").

I was amazed to find that I was MOST comfortable on the Tiger compared to all other models.

I have one question though. Are the riding modes really required if you only plan to do road riding and perhaps just occasional mud and concrete. The price difference is a deal break and whopping 1.7 lakh between the two models. XR and XRX.

Thanks.

Plus there is also a LOW SEAT ACCESSORY for the Tiger 800's.

Thanks.
For what you've mentioned above, it really doesn't make a huge difference, specially if you've reasonable riding experience in handling big bore bikes.

ABS does make a difference specially in a place like India where every other person/animal/thing on road is a "brake inspector"

Best Regards & Ride Safe
