Any Triumph Tiger owners around?
Saw this post on a Bandit site. Are they really this bad, or he just got a lemon? Glad I resisted getting one a few years ago, altho' if resale is that bad, maybe that's why I had considered it? lol
"My '13 Triumph Tiger is on its way to a new home and a new owner.
Paid $12,800 for it. Added $3,000 in accessories. Stopped riding it in '16.
Sold it today with 50,450 miles for $2,200.
What a POS. Bad bike, bad dealer. Bad manufacturer.
Then today when the guy came back from the test ride the battery was literally smoking. What a nightmare. I replaced the voltage regulator on it last summer. Now this. Unreal! I had a spare on hand so I threw that in on the deal (as well as probably $400-$500 of other miscellaneous spare parts, software, etc).
The new owner is a mechanic so I hope he has the patience, money and skills to deal with everything. This bike should have been better, MUCH better.
