Well, Triumph is very happy with BMW pricing. An F800 is more than a Tiger. The F800 is a bit buzzy too.
Methinks that BMW is profiting from the same sort of mindset that HD does. Many people are buying GSes because they think it's "the thing to do" rather than the best bike for their needs. Sort of a Deutsche Rubbie thing.
