At a claimed 260kgs wet the Tiger Explorer is no lightweight but it’s 10 kilos lighter than the Crosstourer. But both are big bikes that hide their weight well as the centre of gravity is noticeably lower than BMW’s monster-tall GS.

I went and had a sit on on yesterday....very, very nice. The swing arm/shaft is great to see. I think the one "performance issue" that this bike will suffer is the fact that the handling will be affected by a comparatively high centre of gravity with the triple motor sitting up high like it does. The low CoG of the boxer engine has helped BMW "hide" the weight of its bikes in many respects. Still, it looks like a top motorcycle !
Jealous of you peter67. Did you see this in Melbourne? I tried the Adelaide dealer today. Told to call back in late May!
