2011 vs 2012 Tiger 800?
Am trying to decide between buying a 2011 model, while they still can be found, and waiting til winter or next spring to buy a 2012.* Won't have opportunity to speak of to ride during next 6 months.
I am hearing of new 2012's already trickling into US dealerships.* Here are my specific questions:
Do all 2012's have black frames?
Is it more of a glossy or flat black?* Any good photos you might post to show that part of the bike?
Any word from Triumph on why they made the change?* I actually prefer the silver, which is the reason for all these questions and my quandary, but wonder if there was a problem with the silver.
Any other reported changes going from the first model yr to the second?
Thanks!!* * * *Den
