They must've kept the power the same because of this A2 licence malarkey you guys have over there, whatever that is

Triumph Centrestand & 3 box panniers.  TOR, dogbone out, Arrow race tune.  MRA screen + spoiler.  GIPro gear indicator.  SWMotech light mount with 3500 Komys.  SWMotech chainguard. Nitron R1.  Hand me down pointy indicators off son's Street Triple.  Would like to respring forks but would need to get divorced first.

Got a point there with that 47bhp learner thingy. More torque at lower rpm would help, the figure 87Nm (64ft/lb) at 7250rpm is ok, a fairly flat curve from 3k rpm, would be good. One of the mags will likely test it soon & give us the power/torque curve.

From the spy-shot I see it's still got that horrendous, power-sapping "tree branch" exhaust manifold. Hopefully when it goes into production it'll have a proper 3-into-1 manifold like the 1050.

Nope - its got that horrendous, power-sapping "tree branch" exhaust manifold  :004: AND they say that due to the new unique firing order "it sounds so different, more like a twin and nothing like a triple."  :187: not sure many will like that!
other than that it sounds to be quite a step up from the 800 IMO,  with Marzocchi or Showa adjustable suspension, (GT or Rallye), Brembo brakes & its lost 5kg

New models are always relative havent stopped laughing from when Triumph introduced the 1050 with 17 wheels and the 955 lot where outraged that they even had the neck to call it a Tiger and all the newbies  flounced off and started this site  :745:

The suspension & brakes are a great step up. The weight loss is "up to 5kg", that varies by model, I read it's 2kg - 5kg.

What the 800 really needed is a higher 6th gear, minimal drop in rpm from 5th to 6th. Fuel consumption is good knocking about A & B roads, but very poor at M'way speeds. eg it records eg 45mpg at 75mph, really needs that higher 6th, it'll run sweet through towns at 30mph in 6th. My TS won't do that, I'm in 3rd mebbe 4th for towns.

Some fair comments,
ultimately it's just an updated 800 not a new model,
they missed a trick with the A2 thing they could have kept the old model as an A2 enrty bike and given the 900 some descent power there must be at least another 15-20hp in there,
the new firing order I think is to give lower torque and a wider spread,
notice they have kept the front suspension manual cost cutting at a guess and they probably feel it's not necessary,
it's a tidy upgrade but not for me

Yes, I read that about the firing order 1-3-2, wonder what the angle is? This has been done over the years with different layout. Have they nicked an old idea or come up with sumert wonderful & new? Anything been said?
