Triumph vs Vee2

Here is a comparo from India. I tend to like these types of write ups as the Indian moto journalist are not typically as desensitized as others.

Thanks for the article. Enjoyable reading, good humor and what appears to be unbiased opinion.

I had a tiger800 road before my veek. I liked the lighter weight and smaller size and the smooth running motor in traffic. But the strom is faster, much more torque, better brakes and suspension. I ride two up alot and the veek is much better, more room, more go, and brakes that will stop you.
I liked the wee tiger to though but its to expensive now for what you get.
I loved my tiger1050 but wife hated the high pillion seat. After one fast run to catch a boat she was in tears, said if I kept it next year she'd stay at home. I slipped up there!!!

I had a Tiger Explorer 1200 and got rid of it because my wife hated the high pillion. With the low seat in the low position the pillion was almost 8" higher than the rider. I got a Scrambler with the flat seat instead. 2 years later I traded in my Harley dresser for the 14 vstrom 1000. She might not mind its back seat. will try soon.

Hopefully she'll like it, my wife likes the strom much better than the triumphs I had. If I'd not the wife to take I'd look at the tiger sport but if I mention triumph I get that look!
