I show 590lbs for the GT, but the weight difference is splitting hairs at this point. I'll gladly stand corrected and amend my last post

Well, it is shorter and 6 lbs lighter (I've always seen 590 for the GT as well). But again, that does include bags on the GT, so after Werks lightens the exhaust and adds bags it will be roughly equal, if not a hair in his favor.

I went to the International Motorcycle Show in Atlanta a week or so ago. Saw and sat on the new Trophy. Was okay. Seemed luxo-tourer big compared to my '08 Sprint. While in the Triumph area a local Triumph dealer who was working the show started to chat me up.

I asked about an updated Sprint GT with the Trophy's electrically adjustable suspension, the 1215cc engine and the Explorer's ride by wire throttle w/ cruise control. He said and I quote "its not in the blueprint".

So, it seems if I want to trade the ST, it comes down to a parade-float sized Trophy with adjustable suspension or a an "adventure" tourer. Methinks the Multistrada may be a better alternative. I just don't understand Triumph's reasoning. It would seem to me a new Sprint would slot in perfectly between the Explorer and Trophy. Disappointing...

It does not appear to be only Triumph's reasoning. I don't think anyone is making the bike you are describing. Maybe BMW with that 1300 they make. On another note, I spoke to a multi-strada owner today and he said it was a blast.

It seems to me the three areas of concentration right now are still the ADV segment, luxury sport-tourers and most recently, a renewed emphasis on smaller, cheaper bikes. Finally.

I love my Sprint 1050, it is just what I want for the riding I do. The new Trophy is too much, with too much weight, and I'm not interested in the Adventure Touring setups.

I might be interested in a Sprint 800, using the Tiger 800 engine, in a ST platform that was 50-75 lbs lighter, with hard bags as a factory option, preferably with better suspension and brakes?

I guess it's time to put some $ into the 1050's suspension and do my best to wear it out.

Keep an eye out for a new Tiger 1050 Sport. If a Multistrada tickles you, the new Tiger Sport will, too.

I'm awaiting this with great interest for that very reason.
