I don't own the Tex but ride a 2011 Tiger 800.
Haven't test rode one either but was taking to my dealer yesterday about trading
Still on the fence whether to go tex.
Been making lists of positive vs negitives.
One major disadvantage is weight. Tex is 100 pounds heavier.
Suppose it turns into a plus on the hwy.
I like the fact the text is slightly taller than the 800.
It's maybe not as attractive as the 800 but that's personal.
What draws me to the tex is shaft drive, 135 hp & torque, traction control, and cruise.
Anyone offer any other insights to help me decide.
Little disappointed with the trade value of my bike.
Dealer claimes he has to offer me next years evaluation because it's the end of year & he has to assume my bike will sit all winter.
He is knocking off a thousand off the tex though. So that's a wash.
