Keep my 2012 VStrom 650 or get a 2015 Tiger 800 XCX....
I love my 2012 VStrom 650. It has been a great first bike and has not let me down in the 12k I have put on it. But........
I am thinking about a 2015 Tiger 800 XCX. Why? The Tiger was the other bike I was thinking about when I get my VStrom. The Vstrom won out based on the Adventure package that came with everything I wanted and the 0% financing was a great deal. I like some of the features on the Tiger cruise control, different rider maps, switchable ABS, etc. Plus I think the triple is a real nice power plant.
A big part of my consideration is I'd like to try something else since the VStrom and my TW200 are the only two bikes I've ridden.
No complaints with the VStrom. It does feel a little sluggish on the highway around 65 and I don't think it has enough grunt to get me out of trouble at the speed if I needed to accelerate.
Nothing is decided yet just thinking out loud and interested if anyone has any opinions.
