    Saw my first ever one on the road on the way home, the headlights are pretty funky. This was an all black one, looked pretty good

    these sound perfect for your commute.

    If they did an RR version of it with a few more BHP released and an Akra on it, I'd seriously think about replacing the Tiger and having one as a mule. ON the other hand, I havent seen the 790 ADV yet!!

    I thought they were quite low, but then I googled... AT 860mm, Tiger 800 (Low Chassis/Seat option) 760mm.

    I like that, but then I've always liked ugly bikes

    What size wheels has it got? They look tiny! And is there a decent choice of tyres - genuine q, I know nothing about scooters.

    Whats servicing like? It looks as though everything is hidden by bodywork, but it also looks like most of that's bodywork is easily removable.

    And why has it got a plate hanger off an articulated lorry attached to the back of it?

    I bet it's fun, I'm kinda tempted to try to sort a test ride.
