Yep, just tap the starter and vrooom starts right up unlike the '06 S3 I had. I did notice a time or two, when fully warmed up and starting the bike there was a bit of delay on start up like the S3. But maybe not quite as long. Over all it starts much faster and comes into idle much smoother than my S3.On 2007-01-27 14:39, bareyb wrote:
How quickly do these new Tigers start up in the morning? I have read they have a new injector system that make for immediate start ups. Is it a simple press of the starter switch and VROOOM or do you have to crack the throttle partially etc. etc. etc. as you do on the older Sprints?
I'm really thinking very hard about trading in my Sprint too. My local dealer doesn't have any new Tigers yet, but I'm sure looking forward to a test ride. I really like the Sprint, but the Tiger is exactly what I've been waiting for.On 2007-01-29 20:10, playinthestreet wrote:
+1 on quicker starting. Have only put 50 mi or so on in the rain, but I'm NOT missing the Sprint. Sitting up straight and seeing better goes a long way for this old guy.

Very interesting post from Bonnylad. I'll wait on the spring test rides here in the states before I make a move.
Scheduled maintaince is something I keep in mind.
A Duc?... Big$
A Beemer?... they are having some final drive problems and they are over priced.
A Guzzi?... Weak dealer network in the states.
A Tiger?... Strong possiblity.
Ducs aren't that bad now. Reasonable price and all new ones have 7000 mile service intervals.
The cost of owning Ducs has always been grossly overstated. I do my Supersport once a year, but do change the oil every 2000.
If you want a Tiger my 2005 might be for sale soon.
