    I really liked the look of the 900 - and I bought one... but the lack of power and poor suspension let it down... but it looks like these issues have been resolved...... here...

    I reckon a test ride will be key..... come March.... pricing due out on 17th December apparently.....

    Hopefully around £11-12k....max.....

    I can only see dry weight on the specs which is quoted at 205, so approx 227ish ?

    Specs here https://www.triumphmotorcycles.co.uk.../specification

    90bhp and 110nm sound useful.

    Will be interesting to compare with my R9T Scrambler when they come out which already makes more BHP/Torque at 110BHP/116NM and weighs in at 220KG wet.


    Still have fond memories of my last 865 Triumph Scrambler

    Both of them are 'heritage' lines so as much about looks as anything, and whilst I'd expect the BMW to easily beat the Triumph in performance terms on the road the triumph has a lot more suspension travel (especially the XE). From memory the XE is 250mm front and rear, and the BMW is 125fr/140rear which is a very different take on the scambler and off road pretensions (not that I'd want to take either off tarmac).

    Both lovely bikes though

    Should do, the 80hp version of the 1200 motor has plenty of beans with the right gearing, 90 should be plenty
