Hi from Tunbridge Wells, England
« on: April 01, 2012, 07:20:28 PM »
Just joined to help decide if the XT is for us. Currently have a vfr1200 which my wife (pillion) and I both really like. In particular the engine is wonderful. We've put on 8,000 miles over the last 10 months but am now looking for something that can carry a bit more luggage. Had a quick go on tne triumph explorer yesterday and was really impressed. Can't wait for a test ride on the XT. Keep the reviews coming.

The VFR1200F motor is a beauty, but what they have done to it for the VFR1200X you have to try for yourself before you can believe it. If you like the V-Four power, sound and feel, the triple will be a let down. I tried the triple, and it's a good bike, but wow, that VFR engine in the Crosstourer is simply awesome.  :020: the triple is a rung lower.  :169:


After having 1 VFR800i, 3 VFR V-Tec's and 3 ST1300's the V-Four is now in my blood. I almost bought a VFR1200F but decided to wait it out for the new ST - and instead I have a VFR1200X with DCT.


As they say, try before you buy - but you will want the CT when you've tried it - and try BOTH the CTs, with and without DCT. Believe me, when you've tried DCT, you won't go back! :305: ...and your pillion will love you forever!

I think the F will soon be replaced by an X on your next bike.


PS. The brakes on the Honda are better than the Triumph's - and that's a fact.  :028:
