XA v XC v others
on: May 14, 2013, 09:28:02 PM
Sorry guys, dumbass question but what types of CT are there. I know there is the normal and there's the SE but I see things like XA & XC and have no idea what they are. Can anyone advise please?

Thanks

I think you'll find that XC and XA are Triumph.

No, searching on Google brings up tings such as

HONDA VFR1200 XA-C Crosstourer (ABS) - Doble Motorcycles and

Honda crosstourer VFR 1200 X-C 1237cc Sport/Tourer RED | eBay and

Honda VFR 1200 XC Crosstourer - YouTube

I know the Tiger has an XC version of my 800

I have no idea !
There is the manual VFR1200X and the dual clutch, VFR1200XD.
SE may also be added on as well to both, as SE means it has a centre stand, heated grips, full luggage and touring screen.

Nae sure Dogs min.

Could be some jargon for Crosstourer...ie...cross=x ...c=crosstourer...a=adventure. You know how shops get an idea in their heads. I did read somewhere that someone tried to get insurance for an CT only to be told they couldn't get insurance for pillions. When I spoke to my local shop they mentioned an abbreviation of some sort that was different from the normal. Sorry I'm not sure that is of any help.
What do you mean it's raining....get ootside and ride the thing.

These insurance companies don't know their arse from their elbow !
When I phoned up for quotes, they were saying that the 1200X and 1200XDCT were two different types of bikes, one road going and the other adventure. I kept on saying that they are both the same and explained the difference. They would have none of what I was saying ! Fools.
Another said they would get back to me when I mentioned automatic gearbox !
